(Off-Duty) Cop Gone Bad: “I’m tired of going to court”: Cop Shoots Ex-Wife Dead in Front of Witnesses, 7-Year-Old Daughter

Sgt. Phillip Seidle has been charged with murder, unlawful possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of his 7-year-old daughter in the death of his 51-year-old ex-wife Tamara, first assistant prosecutor Mark LeMieux said. The couple, who divorced on May 27, had nine children, ranging in age from 7 to 24.

The fatal shooting followed a violent encounter that began when Seidle — with his young daughter in the passenger seat of his silver Honda Pilot — chased his wife as she was driving through the streets of Asbury Park, LeMieux said.

Here’s how LeMieux described the shooting:

As Tamara Seidle was trying to flee, her vehicle crashed into a parked car on Sewall Avenue. Phillip Seidle’s car then crashed into hers, and he got out of the car, pulled out his handgun, and approached her car, immediately firing into the driver’s side several times.

Seidle’s daughter was in his car while he was shooting into her mother’s car.

Once Seidle stopped shooting, he put a gun to his head and started walking around the vehicle, police said. Police, who were nearby investigating an unrelated motor vehicle accident, started talking to Seidle, and got him to agree that they could take his daughter out of the car.

As she was taken away, Seidle then walked to the front of his wife’s car and fired into the windshield.

Seidle then put the gun again to his head, and there was a 30-minute standoff while police attempted to get him to surrender. He did so at 11:52 a.m., LeMieux said.

Eyewitness Michael Terrell described how Seidle ran out to the middle of the street, yelling at his ex-wife about child custody battles.

“The guy was in the middle of the street,” said Terrell, a Neptune resident who was working at Campbell’s Door Supply Co. on Sewall Avenue at the time. “He was saying, ‘I’m tired of going to court.'”

Man Guns Down Woman in Front of Cop for Laughing at Him

The boy, who also was shot and remained hospitalized, told investigators that his mother joked and laughed when she noticed one of the passengers in a Cadillac that ended up following her had his feet hanging out the window, sheriff’s homicide Lt. Dave Coleman said.

“This is what the little boy is saying,” Coleman said. “Mommy says, ‘Look at that, isn’t that funny?’ and they made eye contact. She drove on and they began following her.”

The gunman, identified as Robert Washington, 38, of Rialto, and two other men in the car — Brandon Armolav White, 19, and Stanley Ross White, 24 — had no connection “whatsoever” to Berry, Coleman said.

The attack occurred about 12:40 p.m. Wednesday as Berry drove with her son along Rosecrans Avenue. The patrolman was monitoring traffic near Kornblum Avenue when Berry pulled up to him in her gray Mercedes-Benz and said she was being followed. The officer told the frightened woman to park in front of him and he would investigate.

Berry pulled over and was backing up to park, nearly hitting the officer’s bumper, when a 1994 Cadillac drove up next to her car and stopped.

Before Berry could get out and before the officer could unfasten his seat belt, Washington jumped out and started shooting at the woman and her son. The officer quickly got out of his patrol car and killed the gunman, Coleman said.

The wounded boy ran from the car to safety. His name was not released.

Washington was pronounced dead at the scene. Deputies said he was carrying two guns.

11-Year-Old Girl Beats 2-Month Old to Death

A mother, 39, was babysitting her friend’s 2-month-old baby, Zuri Whitehead, on Thursday night in Wickliffe, which is north of Cleveland. Speaking at a news conference Monday, Police Chief Randy Ice said the girl had hoped to provide a break for the baby’s mother, Trina Whitehead, who has three other children.

The 39-year-old woman said she fell asleep at 3 a.m. on a couch with the baby on one side, and her daughter, who is 11, on the other side, Ice said.

About an hour later, the woman said she was woken up by her daughter, who was holding the infant. The baby appeared to be badly beaten with her head swollen.

The woman immediately called 911 and the baby was airlifted to a children’s trauma center in Cleveland, where she died on Friday.

Police officials said they believe the 11-year-old took the infant into another room and beat her.

An autopsy later revealed that the baby suffered massive blunt-force trauma to the head an torso, Sgt. Len Nosse told the Los Angeles Times.

“It was really horrific,” Noose said. “We’ve never seen anything like this.”

The police chief said he was considering counseling for those who responded to the scene.

The 11-year-old girl, whose name is not being reported due to her age, showed no remorse, Ice said.

“I’m not sure she appreciated the gravity of what she did,” he said.

She cannot be tried as an adult in Ohio, where a child must be at least 14 to be charged as an adult, the AP reported. The girl, though, could be sentenced to a state Department of Youth Services facility until age 21.

12-Year Old Survives Family Murder-Suicide, Calls 911

In the quiet of a pre-dawn Saturday on a dead-end street, a father came home and shot his family in their heads, leaving women in three generations dead and a wounded 12-year-old girl calling 911, police said.

“What I did, I cannot come back from,” Jonathon Walker told his brother by phone soon afterward, police said. And Walker did not come back – police said he killed himself in his car on a desolate street a few miles away, ending a burst of violence that stunned relatives who said the family hadn’t shown signs of trouble.

The 34-year-old security guard had killed his 7-year-old daughter, Kayla Walker; his 31-year-old girlfriend, Shantai Hale; and Hale’s mother, Viola Warren, 62. His and Hale’s older daughter, whom a relative identified as Christina Walker, was hospitalized in stable condition, police said.

The bloody scene unfolded suddenly and quickly – Walker showed up to the home at 5:38 a.m., and his 12-year-old daughter called 911 a few minutes afterward to report that her father had shot the family, Boyce said. When officers arrived three minutes later, Walker was gone.

They searched for his SUV and found it within hours, with Walker’s body and a .45-caliber gun inside, Boyce said.

The victims were found on the home’s floor, he said.

“He just drove off”: Man Throws 5-Year-Old Daughter off Bridge, Kills Her

A Florida man driving toward a bridge over Tampa Bay pulled his car over early Thursday, took his 5-year-old daughter from the back seat, pressed her head to his chest, and tossed her over the rail, according to police in St. Petersburg.

John Nicholas Jonchuck, 25, faces first-degree murder charges. His daughter, Phoebe, fell about 60 feet over the Sunshine Skyway bridge into the bay just after midnight, St. Petersburg police Chief Anthony Holloway said at a news conference.

An officer heading home after his shift saw Jonchuck’s vehicle speed past at nearly 100 mph, Holloway said. The officer prepared to pull the PT Cruiser over, but by the time he caught up with it, Jonchuck had pulled over on the side of the road.

Holloway said Jonchuck got out and started toward the officer, who pulled his weapon. But Jonchuck went around to the passenger side of the car and got the child out.

The officer “thought he heard the child scream, but he wasn’t sure,” Holloway said. The officer then saw the man throw the child over, into the strong bay current.

Her body was recovered about a mile from the bridge and hour and a half later. Rescue crews tried to revive her, but she was pronounced dead at 2:44 a.m.

Back on the road, officers said Jonchuck got back in the car and headed south, crossing the bridge on Interstate 275.

“The suspect drove off,” Holloway said. “He just drove off.”

Two other officers who were near the bridge started following Jonchuck into neighboring Manatee County.

Holloway said Jonchuck turned his blinker on and stopped before starting again and driving toward deputies. He then headed the wrong way on the interstate, going back toward the bridge. Deputies put out traffic spikes to stop the vehicle.

Jonchuck was arrested and brought back to St. Petersburg for questioning. He’s being held without bond on the murder charge.

Authorities said Jonchuck filed a domestic violence report against the child’s mother last month, but it wasn’t granted. He had custody of the child, and they lived with his father in Tampa. Authorities didn’t release information about the girl’s mother.

UPDATE: 15-Year Old Shoots Brother Dead, 11-Year-Old Sister “assisted”

Rusty knew there had to be something going on in that house…..

A 15-year-old girl who fatally shot her 16-year-old brother suffered years of abuse, including being locked in a room for weeks at a time with only a blanket and a bucket to use the bathroom, according to police reports and interviews.

The shooting at a small white house off a dirt road in rural north Florida happened Monday while the children’s parents were away for work. The father, a truck driver, and his wife, who often goes with him, left the 16-year-old boy to watch over the 15-year-old, her 11-year-old sister and their 3-year-old sister, police said. The parents left Sunday and were due back Tuesday.

Sometime Monday, the 15-year-old girl was locked in her room by her brother, police said. After the boy fell asleep, she talked her 11-year-old sister into unlocking her door.

The older girl knew her parents kept a pistol in their room, but they had locked their door. So the girl went outside and used a knife to remove an air conditioner from her parents’ bedroom window. She climbed in while her 11-year-old sister kept watch and grabbed the gun out of a pink bag and loaded it, police said.

The girl went back inside the house, telling her young sisters to get in the closet, she told police. She turned her head and fired at her sleeping brother in the living room, and he screamed “Help! Help!”

She buried her head in a pillow for a while and upon returning to the living room, the girl found her 3-year-old sister trying to wake her dead brother, according to the police report.

She fled with her 11-year-old sister, leaving the 3-year-old behind, police said.

The girls’ mother told police that they often locked the 15-year-old girl up when she misbehaved. The longest they kept her locked in her room was 20 consecutive days, the father told police.

In the girl’s room, police found only a blanket and a bucket filled with urine in the closet.

“It was learned that (the 15-year-old girl) has made past attempts at ending her life but neither law enforcement nor (emergency management services) was notified,” police wrote in their report.

Police documents released Wednesday said the girl’s uncle was convicted of molesting her in 2010. They also say the children’s mother discovered the siblings having sex in 2011. Authorities and child welfare officials investigated, but no one was charged.

Why police say they’re not sure of a motive is sheer stupidity.

Abuse Accusations Surface In Case Of Florida Teen Who Allegedly Killed Older Brother. HuffPo Crime, 1/7/2015.


Misty “Ariel” Renee Kornegay and her 11-year-old sister Nicole were arrested Monday night and are charged in the death of their 16-year-old brother.

Their parents, Keith and Misty, were also arrested on child neglect charges.

The Sheriff’s Office said 15-year-old Misty “Ariel” Renee Kornegay admitted she shot her 16-year-old brother, then walked away from the home with her 11-year-old sister, Nicole, leaving their 3-year-old sister at home.

Deputies said the shooting happened about 9:30 p.m. at 1205 Sophie Drive in the north part of the county, not far from White Springs.

White Springs police saw the girls walking and stopped them. When officers learned of the homicide, they called the Sheriff’s Office to the scene. Deputies found the brother dead on the living room floor from a single gunshot.

Investigators said the parents were out of town and Ariel Kornegay (pictured left with Nicole, right) retrieved the handgun used in the shooting from the parents’ bedroom. They have not revealed a motive.

After the parents, Keith Kornegay, 37, and 33-year-old Misty Kornegay, returned to town, they were questioned by investigators and were arrested on child neglect charges, accused of failing to properly supervise the children.

Columbia County, which didn’t have a single murder last year, was rocked by the murder.

Sheriff’s office deputies were dispatched to the Kornegay’s White Springs home, whereupon they found the body of the girl’s 16-year-old brother, Damien Kornegay, sprawled out on the living room floor. He had been shot one time and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.

“Based on the preliminary investigation, it is believed that earlier in the evening the 15-year-old sister of the deceased retrieved a handgun from their parents’ bedroom and used it to shoot her brother,” said Smith.

Nicole Kornegay’s role in the shooting remains unclear. Smith would only say that she “assisted her 15-year-old sister” in the commission of the crime.

Man Beats 3-Year-Old Girl to Death over Soiled Pants

Cops found the dying girl after a 911 caller reported bloodcurdling screams echoing from the apartment in a city homeless shelter at 38 Cooper St. shortly before 4 p.m., cops said.

…Jeida Torres, 3, died at Wyckoff Hospital after her mother’s enraged boyfriend “punched and choked” the tiny child — who suffered injuries to her head and body, sources said.

“She either pooped her pants or peed on herself, and he got agitated,” a source said.

Suspect Kelsey Smith, who fled the scene and left the mortally injured child behind with her battered big brother, has a rap sheet with with 14 prior arrests dating to 2008, cop sources said.

Jeida’s 5-year-old brother, Andrew, was also beaten black and blue by Smith, 20, although a police source said the boy’s injuries were possibly inflicted before Saturday.

Neighbor Marilyn Cruz said the afternoon killing capped two solid weeks of fighting and violence inside the apartment.

Smith was busted just across the Queens border after the NYPD received a tip on the fugitive’s whereabouts. Cop sources said he tried to slash himself in a failed suicide try.

[Mother of children Kimberly] Torres — who arrived at the location 30 minutes after the 911 call — told police she left Smith alone with her two kids when she went to work Saturday.

The dead girl’s grandfather broke down completely after he learned of little Jeida’s fate, and his daughter sobbed relentlessly before police brought her to the hospital.

Battered Andrew Torres, who was placed in a police car for the trip to Wyckoff, was in stable condition with visible bruises to his face and upper body.

“Papa! Papa!” the terrified boy shouted at his grandfather, who had just come downstairs from the apartment where his granddaughter’s body was found.

The little girl was already motionless when EMTs rushed her outside in a desperate if vain effort to save her life.

“I saw the paramedics run out with little girl wrapped in a blanket,” said Best. “Her hands were just hanging out … just limp.”

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.

Father Beats the Shit out of Son’s Attacker, No Charges to Be Filed

What cop would arrest this father? What jury would convict this father? At the story link below, you can see this boy’s busted-up face.

A Florida police chief has caused a media stir by saying he is looking the other way after a father severely beat a man he caught sexually assaulting his 11-year-old son.

The father called Daytona Beach police on Friday to report he had interrupted his son being assaulted, and could be heard telling a dispatcher he left the attacker “nice and knocked out” and “in a puddle of blood” on the floor.

Raymond Frolander, 18, faces a felony sexual battery charge on a victim under 12-years-old, according to a police charging affidavit. The father had not been charged in the beating.

“We observed the defendant laying motionless on the living room floor with several knots on his face and bleeding from his mouth,” police wrote in the affidavit.

Daytona Beach Police Chief Michael Chitwood, asked by a local CNN affiliate whether he had any issue with the father’s actions, said: “Not as a police chief and not as a father.”

Media photos show pictures of Frolander severely beaten, with bloodied lips, bruises around his swollen eyes, and scratches on his neck.
