Teen Mother Kills Man over PS4, 16-Month Old in Tow

The alleged shooter in the Friday night incident is a 16-year-old girl whose 16-month-old baby was only feet away at the time of the robbery and shooting, according to Sandy Springs police Sgt. Ron Momon.

Daniel John Zeitz, 28, of Roswell, had listed a PS4 gaming system for sale on Craigslist, and about 9:30 p.m., went to the parking lot of an apartment on Treelodge Parkway to meet a potential buyer, Momon said.

There, he met 20-year-old Nathaniel Vivian and a 16-year-old girl, whose name has not been released.

Momon said the pair tried to rob Zeitz of the PS4, and Vivian, who was in the driver’s seat of a car, struggled with Zeitz, who was standing outside the car, for the gaming system.

During the struggle, the girl fired a shot from a .25 caliber handgun, and the bullet passed through Vivian’s hand and struck Zeitz in the side of his chest, killing him.

…“Detectives also learned that the juvenile’s infant child, approximately 16 months, was in the back seat of the car during the robbery and shooting,” he said.

Found Competent: Woman Who Dumped 5 Garbage Bags of Body Parts


Woman Accused Of Dismembering Son Is Mentally Competent To Stand Trial. HuffPo Crime, 9/5/2014.

Donna Scrivo of St. Clair Shores appeared in court Friday, where attorneys said psychological evaluations deemed her mentally competent. She waived a District Court hearing to determine whether there is enough evidence to send the case to trial.

Defense lawyer Elias Muawad tells the Detroit Free Press “we want to move on to prepare for trial.”

The next hearing is scheduled for Sept. 22 in Macomb County Circuit Court.

The 60-year-old is charged with first-degree murder and dismemberment. Five bags containing 32-year-old Ramsay Scrivo’s body parts were dumped in February in St. Clair County, about 50 miles northeast of Detroit. An electric saw was found in one of the bags.


The remains of a person were found this afternoon on Allington Road and Fred Moore Highway in China Township.

According to St. Clair County Sheriff Tim Donnellon, a citizen called in a suspicious incident at approximately 4:00. Deputies responded and discovered parts of a body in garbage bags along the roads. At this time, there has been no determination of sex or race of the body.

Once on the scene, another citizen told deputies they observed a mid- 1990’s SUV type vehicle in the area, dumping what the caller believed to be garbage from the vehicle. The vehicle is believed to be white or gray in color, possibly a GMC Jimmy or Chevrolet Trailblazer. That vehicle was being driven by a middle age Caucasian woman.

“We are treating this incident as a homicide,” said Sheriff Donnellon. “We are asking for the public’s help to solve this crime. If anyone observed anything unusual in the area of Fred Moore Highway and Allington Road between noon and 4:00 p.m., please contact our office at (810) 985-8115.”

“What’s your problem?”: Father of 2 Gunned down by Road Rage Driver

According to [attorney William] Moore, [Derek] Flemming and his wife [Amy] were eastbound on Grand River Avenue in their SUV about 3:35 p.m. Tuesday when they noticed a 2012 Dodge pickup “screaming down a side street” so fast that Amy Flemming believed it was going to hit their SUV, but instead cut them off as it turned onto Grand River.

Moore said Derek Flemming attempted to move to the right lane to allow the pickup to pass, but the other driver nearly struck their SUV.

Bezotte said the pickup driver was tailgating the Flemmings’ Escape until they reached National Street where the pickup driver passed the SUV.

Moore said Amy Flemming told police that the pickup driver cut to the left, getting in front of their SUV and he “slammed on the brakes.”

Witnesses indicated that the younger man appeared to be “upset” or “angry” as he approached the pickup, Bezotte said, but it is believed there was no physical contact between the men before the shooting.

“His wife was forced to witness this act from the front seat of her car,” Moore said.

Livingston County Prosecutor William Vailliencourt expressed his condolences to the Flemming family during a 4 p.m. press conference today. He also said this case is not about a citizen’s right to possess guns.

“I fully support the right of individuals to keep and possess firearms, but it’s when they misuse those weapons that it becomes a problem,” he said.

Vailliencourt said he’s confident the suspect, Martin Edward Zale, wasn’t reacting in self-defense when he shot Derek Flemming once in the face as the 43-year-old father of two stood outside Zale’s pickup truck on Tuesday following a road rage incident. He said a jury will decide if there was a reasonable threat of imminent harm from Martin Edward Zale’s viewpoint.

Vailliencourt said you can’t shoot someone because you’re not happy with them.

“I don’t want to die, please don’t kill me”: Grandmother Stabs 7-Year-Old Grandson to Death

Mason Rhinehart and his brother were playing video games in their Killearn Lakes Plantation home Tuesday morning when their grandmother, Martha White, interrupted to say she had a surprise for them.

White, 63, who had been babysitting the boys, then took 6-year-old Mason into the bathroom and locked the door behind her, a probable cause affidavit said. Mason’s brother, age 8, heard him start to cry from behind the door and say, “I don’t want to die, please don’t kill me.”

The boy said he tried to get in the bathroom, but could not. He then called his father and hid, court documents said.

Within five minutes, first responders were on the scene and found Mason lying on the bathroom floor with multiple stab wounds to the chest, said Lt. James McQuaig, LCSO spokesman. Leon County Emergency Medical Services rushed him to the hospital, but Mason did not survive.

…Mason’s brother said he saw White leave the home with a bottle of wine but not before telling him she “had a surprise for him too,” court documents said. McQuaig said Mason’s brother was not injured in the incident.

Deputies identified White as a suspect when they found her covered in blood at the dead end of Valley Creek Drive, about a half-mile away from the boys’ parents’ home in the 7700 block of Bass Ridge Trail. White’s clothing was covered with blood, court documents said. She also had a bottle of wine and a Xanax.

…It is still too early in the investigation to identify a motive for the stabbing, McQuaig said. However, White told deputies she was “fed up.”

“If you are going to kill me then go ahead”: Man Tries to Murder Woman over 3 Cookies

When Allen M. Hall’s 49-year-old female roommate ate three Chips Ahoy cookies, that apparently sent him into a frenzy, which almost resulted in her death.

When Hall, 23, threatened to kill his roommate when he discovered she ate the cookies for breakfast, at first she thought he was joking.

But after repeating the threats Hall attacked her, said an affidavit by Decatur patrol officer Joseph Kish.

The incident occurred about 10:15 a.m. Wednesday in a house on the 400 block of East Garfield Avenue, where Hall and the roommate had separate bedrooms.

The victim said she was dressing in a bathroom when Hall started pounding on the door, threatening to kill her.

Because she didn’t take the threat seriously she opened the door and told him: “If you are going to kill me then go ahead,” the victim later told police.

Hall shocked her with his violent response.

“Allen grabbed her around the throat with both of his hands and threw her down into the tub,” she told police, said the affidavit. “She hit the back of her head on the tub and this caused a knot on her head.”

Hall then got on top of her “and strangled her to the point she could not speak and was having difficulty breathing.”

The victim’s husband and landlady both arrived on the scene and “had to pull Allen off of her.”

She later told police she believed “Allen would have killed her if (her husband and landlady) had not been there.”

The landlady told police she was in the dining room when she heard “commotion coming from the bathroom.” When she arrived on the scene, Hall was on top of her in the tub, with his hands around her neck “and appeared to be squeezing as hard as he could.”

When the landlady yelled for him to stop, he did not relent, so she grabbed one of his arms. Then she and the victim’s husband pulled Hall off of her.

“If she had not been there she believed Allen would have killed (the victim),” the landlady told police.

During a police interview, Hall explained, “(The victim) told him to kill her, so he charged.”
