I will never forgive this – Two men found guilty in murders

first_imgRED DEER, Alta. – Relatives of three members of a central Alberta family who were murdered and their bodies burned lashed out at the two men convicted of first-degree murder in their deaths Wednesday.Jason Klaus and Joshua Frank were found guilty on all three charges by Justice Eric Macklin.The bodies of Gordon Klaus and his daughter, Monica, were found in their burned-out farmhouse near Castor, Alta., in December 2013. Sandra Klaus was never found, although police believe her body was also in the house.The victims were Jason Klaus’ father, mother and sister.His aunt, Marilyn Thomson, said she was sickened when she watched the two men confess to an undercover RCMP officer during the trial.“Jason is also dead to me. The whole family is gone,” Thomson said outside court.“My hatred is immeasurable. I was absolutely devastated to hear and watch the arrogance, the bragging, the conceit — the cockiness and the sheer happiness of Jason and Josh who are obviously buddies and proud of what they had done.”Nicole Thomson said her Uncle Gordon and Aunt Sandra were almost second parents to her.“Part of me will always live in a state of devastation because of what you’ve done,” she said to her cousin Jason, choking back tears.“You are not worthy of the Klaus name. May God have mercy on you two depraved souls. To forgive you would be to sully their worth and I will never forgive this.”During the trial, Klaus and Frank each blamed the other for the murders and gave different versions of what happened.Macklin said he was satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt of their guilt.“Together they planned and carried out the three murders,” he said. “Each one played a crucial role in executing the plan.”Macklin said if the Klaus family dog hadn’t been shot, police may never have known the victims had been murdered. Fire crews arrived at the farm and found the brown Labrador retriever dead.RCMP found two shell casings outside the burning home and two bodies inside. Macklin said police later found the handgun in the Battle River — it belonged to Klaus and matched the bullets found in the family dog.During the trial court heard that Klaus was having problems with his father and offered Frank money to kill the family.Klaus had a cocaine and gambling addiction. He forged cheques on his parents account, promising to pay them back.Macklin said the men’s confessions “fit together like a puzzle and together they form the big picture.”“Mr. Frank intentionally shot Gordon, Sandra and Monica Klaus on Dec. 8, 2013, and set the house on fire to conceal the crime. Mr. Frank knew exactly what Mr. Klaus expected of him and he carried out the murders in accordance with their plan,” Macklin said.“Mr. Klaus did not actually shoot the Klaus family members. However, the Crown has established beyond a reasonable doubt that he planned and deliberated the murders.”Macklin wanted to move immediately to sentencing arguments, but the defence requested more time because the Crown is seeking no chance of parole for 75 years.Life in prison with no chance of parole for 25 years is automatic for first-degree murder, but there are provisions in the Criminal Code to have sentences served one after the other for multiple murders.Crown prosecutor Doug Taylor said he hopes the family and friends of the dead can find some peace once the case is over.“I struggle with this because it’s not my role as a Crown prosecutor to characterize the offence. That’s the role of the court,” Taylor said.“With that said, the word that comes to mind to me and it always has since I learned of the case and got involved is this is a despicable crime.”Follow BillGraveland on Twitterlast_img read more

UN mission in Côte dIvoire deplores murder of 5 people urges support

The UN Operation in Côte d’Ivoire (UNOCI) issued a statement today deploring the crimes committed on Friday in Dieouzon village, near Bangolo, where the dead were discovered by a joint patrol of UNOCI and the French Licorne forces.The incident “resulted in the movement of the inhabitants of the village,” according to UNOCI, which said impartial forces reinforced monitoring in the area by additional mixed patrols aimed at restoring confidence among the local population.An investigation is underway to identify the perpetrators. “UNOCI invites all witnesses to collaborate so as to assist in stopping these criminal acts and calls on the inhabitants of the area to remain calm, recalling that violence does not resolve ethnic or economic conflicts,” the mission said.In a related development, on Friday, UNOCI’s Acting Force Commander, General Fernand Amoussou, called on the Ivorian Chiefs of Staff to resume their military dialogue. Speaking in Abidjan during the mission’s weekly press conference, Gen. Amoussou said that the resumption would make it possible for the chiefs of the national Defence and Security Forces and the rebel Armed Forces of the Forces Nouvelles to agree on accords they had signed jointly. Giving a brief assessment of the mission’s activities, he said that since the beginning of this year there had been approximately 9,000 day and night patrols by battalions as well as military observers throughout Côte d’Ivoire.While these activities “contribute to the security of the country,” he said stability in Côte d’Ivoire was the responsibility of its authorities. “These patrols also help with reconciliation at the local level, more precisely in the villages where people always lived together, so as to bring back a climate of fraternity and serenity.” Gen. Amoussou explained that the presence of the Force in the zone of confidence was justified by the mission’s wish to prevent any resumption of hostilities. He said UNOCI would support the Government of National Reconciliation in all the operations aimed at restoring peace and holding elections. Meanwhile, in Bouaké, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative for Côte d’Ivoire, Pierre Schori, on Thursday inaugurated a UNOCI-financed Quick Impact Project run by a non-governmental organization (NGO) called “Notre Enfance,” which helps women and the children. read more

UN partners complete first aid delivery in months to Syrias warbattered east

“Whilst this development is welcome, it is absolutely insufficient. The people reached represent 2.6 per cent of the 272,500 people in need in east Ghouta,” the Humanitarian Coordinator for Syria, Ali Al-Za’tari, said in a statement Friday.The supplies were delivered on 14 February. Aid workers have had no access to the besieged city for 78 days.However, other supplies, including much-needed water and sanitation, education materials and non-food items, such as kitchen sets, blankets and plastic sheets, were not allowed to be loaded in the convoy, added the UN official.As to the situation on the ground, the convoy – comprising UN agencies and the Syrian Arab Red Crescent – reported that the months-long isolation has left the local population “tired and exhausted.”“Families are forced to skip meals, some only having one meal a day. A young ailing girl informed the team she has been eating yogurt and nothing else,” noted Mr. Al-Za’tari.In addition, the stocks of basic commodities in the market are running dangerously low and prices are prohibitively expensive for the vast majority of people.The rations delivered by the convoy will be shared among families, with five families sharing one basket.This is not enough to sustain them for long and the impact of increasing levels of food insecurity – especially on children and pregnant women – is evident.Whilst this development is welcome, it is absolutely insufficient. The people reached represent 2.6 per cent of the 272,500 people in need in east Ghouta — Humanitarian Coordinator Al-Za’tariThe UN team witnessed a number of cases of severe acute malnutrition amid growing reports of an impending crisis. Healthcare workers at Shofiniyeh hospital reportedly screened 317 children under five in the last two weeks with 69 cases of acute malnutrition and 127 of children at risk.Furthermore, caesarean-sections (C-sections) now account for 25 per cent of all births, likely caused by malnutrition among women and their lack of strength to give birth.Paucity of medicines and health supplies taking a tollThe UN team also saw expired anaesthetics, the use of which has resulted in two deaths; and with vaccines running low, hundreds of children are feared to be at risk of disease.Reports of cases of communicable diseases, such as tuberculosis, typhoid fever and scabies have emerged. Furthermore, with flare up of hostilities the number of people in need of urgent medical evacuation have also increased significantly.The fighting has resulted in a surge of new displacement, with reports of hundreds of families desperate enough to seek refuge in other parts of east Ghouta – many of which are not safer – than the places they were forced to flee.“People in need must be served, wherever they are. If Nashabiyeh is a sample of communities in need, then the situation is far graver than imagined,” said Mr. Al-Za’tari, calling on all parties to the conflict, and those with influence over them, to allow immediate, safe, sustained and unimpeded humanitarian access to all in need – particularly those in besieged and hard-to-reach areas.“To do so, we repeat our call for an urgently required one-month cessation of hostilities. We will continue appealing for access to all those in need, and remind those responsible of their obligation to grant it under international humanitarian law,” he added. read more

NMA greets proposed carbon capture legislature as an accelerated pathway to energy

first_imgNational Mining Association (NMA) President and CEO Hal Quinn released the following statement in support of the “Carbon Capture and Sequestration Act of 2010” introduced by Senators Jay Rockefeller (West Virginia) and George Voinovich (Ohio). The measure would help the private sector accelerate development and early deployment of carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology in the US by providing a wires charge-funded $20 billion over 10 years, expanding the Department of Energy’s loan program and establishing a regulatory framework to monitor and govern geological storage of CO2.“With the world’s largest reserves of secure domestic coal meeting half the nation’s electricity needs, the US has a strategic interest in developing advanced clean coal technology. Carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology will enable US power plants to not only neutralize carbon emissions from coal combustion but also to continue providing American households and industries with affordable electric power and high wage employment from coal production.“Senators Rockefeller and Voinovich have taken an important leadership role in providing the necessary financial incentives and a much-needed regulatory framework to facilitate the development and early deployment of this vital technology. The bill not only provides a pathway for continued energy independence in meeting our electricity needs, it also will create much-needed jobs across America. The National Mining Association looks forward to working with Sens. Rockefeller and Voinovich on this important legislation.”The text of the bill may be found here: Carbon Capture and Sequestration Act of 2010last_img read more

Leonard Replaces Tonga As Upper Marlboro Mayor

first_imgBy Mark F. Gray, AFRO Staff Writer, mgray@afro.comThe capital of Prince George’s County has found its next mayor after the untimely resignation of her predecessor.  Wanda Leonard officially replaced Tonga Turner, who resigned last month to spend more time with her family and to focus on her professional career outside politics.Leonard was elected as President of the Board of Commissioners, which is the official designation for the position of mayor in the Town of Upper Marlboro, during a special meeting July 1.  Leonard has served as a Town Commissioner for the past 18 months and becomes only the second African American woman to be elected in its 313 year history.Wanda Leonard became the second Black woman to serve as Mayor of Upper Marlboro replacing Tonga Turner who resigned to spend more time with her family. (Courtesy Photo)“I am humbled and honored to have been elected as the town’s new Mayor,” Leonard said in a public statement after she was sworn in. Leonard previously ran for public office in January 2018 after realizing that Upper Marlboro needed visionary leadership and fresh perspectives to transform a town which has seen businesses leave and has been mysteriously absent amidst the economic revitalization that is occurring throughout the County. She also plans to focus on what town residents need to enhance their living experience, and what matters are truly important to the community.Her predecessor began with the same plans to restore the town’s economy and develop its brand to make it more attractive to corporate partnerships.  Upper Marlboro is the home of the Prince George’s County government. The town also hosts the county’s municipal courts, and the public school system.  When Turner announced her plans to relinquish the position in early June she took pride in her accomplishments during her truncated leadership. In her resignation letter the former mayor cited her achievements that include securing $800,000 in grants for the town, economic growth legislation, and restructuring during her two years in office.Tonga had been subjected to various racial attacks although she said that wasn’t the reason for her resignation.  However, it was well documented through various accounts that some of her constituents used racially incendiary words in email attacks. The tires on her car were reportedly slashed and a former town commissioner was caught by a resident drawing swastikas on a notepad during a town meeting.“My goals are two-fold. I certainly want to continue the great work started by my predecessor, Tonga Turner. I also want to continue to move Upper Marlboro forward with my own vision of what we can become by working together.” Leonard graduated from the University of the District of Columbia earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in business administration with an emphasis on management and a minor in finance.  She is a United States Army Reserve veteran and has an extensive record of public service.   The new mayor of the Prince George’s County seat has been a Court Appointed Special Advocate for abused and neglected children in the District of Columbia.  She has also served as a member of the board for Family Advocacy and a Donate Life Ambassador with Washington Regional Transplant Community. In addition Mayor Leonard is an alum of the Prince George’s County Police Citizens Academy and a Prince George County Police Volunteer in Police Services.  She also served as president of the Greater Upper Marlboro Maryland Community Emergency Response Team (CERT).Leonard is also described as a seasoned leader in the healthcare industry.last_img read more

Muslims get ready for Ramadan fast in summer heat

Islam already gives exemptions from the fast for those in certain circumstances _ the elderly, the sick, women who are pregnant, nursing or menstruating, children and travelers.Religious authorities in the United Arab Emirates allow laborers to break their fast if the temperature exceeds 122 Fahrenheit (50 Celsius). Other Muslim scholars say, regardless of the temperature, laborers can break their fast if they feel weak or thirsty. They have to make up the days later, said Sheik Mohammed Ali, an Iraqi Shiite cleric.“They should have the little food and drink that can make them able to work,” he said.Dr. Sarmad Hamid, a physician in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad, said people should use common sense and stay out of the sun _ and those who work outdoors, such as traffic police, should not be expected to fast.Observing the fast is a particular challenge in Gaza, a tiny sliver of land between Israel and Egypt, ruled by the Islamic militant group Hamas. After years of strife and border blockades, Gaza is propped up by U.N. food aid and suffers daily hours-long blackouts.Gazans have to make do without fans to cool sweltering, crowded apartments, without TVs to distract children and unemployed husbands, without ovens to cook and without water because the electric pumps are idle.

Top holiday drink recipes New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Despite the hardship, for many Muslims it’s the most anticipated part of the year _ a time of family togetherness and religious devotion, a break from routine. Muslims believe God revealed the first verses of their holy book, the Quran, to the Prophet Muhammad during Ramadan.The Muslim lunar calendar moves back through the seasons, so Ramadan starts 11 days earlier each year under the Western calendar. The last time Ramadan started in mid-July was in 1980. Winter fasts are easier because of cooler temperatures and shorter days. This year, Ramadan starts in most parts of the Muslim world on Friday, though some mark the beginning on Saturday.“There’s no choice but to bear the heat,” shrugged Jalal Qandil, 38, a sun-browned, sweating construction worker in Gaza City, father of five school-age children. “If I don’t work, we won’t eat this Ramadan. But God will help us.”Other laborers said they would quietly break their fast, trusting that God understands.“Sometimes it’s so hot, that we can’t touch the metal poles on the scaffolding without gloves,” said Munir, a 26-year-old Pakistani laborer in Dubai. “You cannot work in these conditions without water.

Those who can afford it prepare elaborate dinners for “Iftar,” or the meal that breaks the fast. In Morocco, the sunset meal is light, consisting of a traditional spicy thick tomato soup with chickpeas, followed by milk, dates and a croissant.

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo A shift happened at the beginning of March.Quarterback Kyler Murray committed to a football future and looked like the best fit for the Arizona Cardinals and new head coach Kliff Kingsbury, but that the team was dead set on selecting him was an assumption.Then came the NFL Draft Combine, in which Kingsbury and general manager Steve Keim hardly, and purposefully, left the door open for the team to pick Murray — and even trade current quarterback Josh Rosen. By that point, it was certainly obvious that those within the NFL community believed the Cardinals were heading toward a selection of Murray with the first pick in the draft. But 10 days out from the draft, reality is setting in.Related LinksHere are all of the teams that Kyler Murray has visited withNFL Mock Draft TrackerWhat if Arizona passes on Murray?That realization is hitting home. While the Cardinals haven’t tipped their hand either way, how teams drafting behind them are acting is telling as prospects make official visits. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Despite #Sooners QB Kyler Murray being pegged at No. 1, teams further down the #NFL draft have been doing added due diligence on not only Murray but other QBs. Thought being If Murray gets past 1, some guys may trickle. Lock, for example, with visits to #Packers and #Chargers.— Charles Robinson (@CharlesRobinson) April 15, 2019We don’t need long-time NFL reporter Peter King of NBC to explain to us that the Cardinals could still be deliberating over all of this.But here it was leading his weekly column on Monday:• I don’t believe there is unanimity inside the Cardinals building today either to take Murray, trade down for a passel of picks to a Murray-loving team, or to sit at one and take an impact player for the defense like edge-rusher Nick Bosa. Then again, if GM Steve Keim and Kingsbury both want Murray, that’s going to be the pick.• The Cards’ personnel brains—led by Keim and VP of player personnel Terry McDonough—are extremely confident people. If you run a team’s player-acquisition department, of course you should be confident. But Keim and McDonough are at the upper end among NFL personnel people in belief in their ability to pick players. I think Keim wouldn’t blink about trading the first pick. Keim won’t be scared to buck conventional wisdom.King threw out the Raiders as a potential trade partner.

Not only are Murray’s visits to the New York Giants (No. 6) and Washington Redskins (No. 15) telling about his own status; other quarterbacks and players are setting up additional visits in preparation that Murray falling past Arizona creates a domino effect. April 1st confidence meter: Kyler Murray will be 1st overall pick(90%)April 15th confidence meter: Kyler Murray will be 1st overall pick (60%)— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) April 15, 2019NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah, a former scout, doesn’t have inside sources on the matter, but he does know the business.The public business of other teams is telling him that, as Keim and his team build a firm draft board, there remains fear outside the Cardinals facility that they haven’t made a hard decision on drafting Murray, drafting someone else or trading the first pick.So many team visits. If it’s an inside job (understood between player, team & agent), why take all of the visits? A couple in top 5…I get. Not the rest. Just a hunch. Doesn’t feel like a done deal.— Daniel Jeremiah (@MoveTheSticks) April 15, 2019 All along, they were the most obvious option because Oakland owns three first-round picks this year and two more next year. Trading veteran Derek Carr has always looked like a valid option despite coach Jon Gruden and GM Mike Mayock calling him their franchise quarterback.Speaking of the obvious things we’ve forgotten to mention since Kyler-mania began: Arizona needs a lot more than a quarterback.If Keim and McDonough are so confident in their drafting as King suggests, there would have to be a really good reason for them to be giving up on Rosen after his rookie season. The Cardinals have holes all over the roster they could fill by trading down for a package of picks.Maybe Murray will be the pick after all.Keim and Kingsbury might view him as a transcendent talent, making whatever evaluation of Rosen only a side note.The reality now is like it’s been. Nobody really knows what Arizona is thinking. It seems that remains apparent in NFL circles, too.last_img read more
