Father held after 4 California children, grandmother slain

LANCASTER, Calif. -- Four children, including an infant, and their grandmother were found shot to death in a Southern California home and the children's father was arrested on suspicion of killing them, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

The victims were found Sunday night in a home in the city of Lancaster in the high desert Antelope Valley north of Los Angeles.

The children's mother discovered the bodies and called 911, Lt. Brandon Dean told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.

Three houses away, Grace Beltran and her son Gerard were awakened by first responders' flashing lights. Grace Beltran said a woman was running back and forth in their front yard, screaming, “My babies are gone! They’re all dead!”

Within a few minutes of the mother arriving home, the children’s father, Germarcus David, 29, turned himself in to deputies at the Lancaster sheriff’s station, Dean said.


UK: Labour deputy Angela Rayner tells of fears over death threats

Deputy Labour leader Angela Rayner has told of her distress at repeated abuse including threats to "hunt her down" like murdered MP Jo Cox.

Speaking at length about the issue for the first time, the Ashton-under-Lyne MP told the BBC the harassment began when she took on the role in 2020.

Benjamin Iliffe was sentenced to 15 weeks in prison for sending Ms Rayner a threatening email in October.
Ms Rayner said she had now "got used to the abuse, which was sad in itself".

The MP told BBC North West Tonight that at first she was called "thick" and mocked for her northern accent by trolls, before the harassment became more sinister.

She now has a permanent police escort and has had panic buttons fitted in her home.

North Texas man charged with assaulting cops during Capitol insurrection is running for Texas House

AUSTIN – A North Texas man facing federal charges for allegedly assaulting police officers during the Jan. 6 insurrection and siege at the U.S. Capitol is now running for a Texas House seat.

Mark Middleton, who was indicted in May by a federal grand jury in Washington, D.C., is challenging incumbent GOP Rep. David Spiller of Jacksboro in House District 68. Following this year’s redistricting, the district stretches from the Oklahoma border south to Lampasas and San Saba counties at the edge of the Texas Hill Country.

According to the Texas secretary of state website, the state Republican Party has accepted Middleton’s application to be a candidate in the March 1 primary.

Middleton and his wife Jalise, of Forestburg, were captured on video and in photographs participating in the riot, the FBI says in a federal criminal complaint. They were arrested and released in April from the Collin County jail, according to jail records.
