The man claims he met them at a downtown nightclub and accepted a ride—but the horny women drove him only a few blocks in an SUV before turning into a parking lot and assaulting him. Police describe the women as being about 5’4″ and in their early thirties; one had a British accent and a tattoo of wings on the back of her neck, the National Post reports.

‘Craigslist Killer’ Sentenced To Death
A judge in Ohio has sentenced 53-year-old Richard Beasley to death today; the jury that convicted him recommended last week that he be executed. Beasley was convicted of teaming up with a teenager in 2011 to lure men with offers of farmhand jobs in southeast Ohio. Three men were killed and a fourth wounded.
Co-defendant Brogan Rafferty, then 16, got off ‘easy’ because he was too young to face the death penalty, and was sentenced to life in prison without the chance of parole last year.
All the victims were down-and-out men looking for a fresh start, prosecutors said repeatedly during the trial. Survivor Scott Davis, now 49, testified that he heard the click of a gun as he walked in front of Beasley at the “job site” in Noble County. Davis, who was shot in the arm, knocked the weapon aside, fled into the woods, and tipped off police.

Amanda Knox Faces Retrial In Meredith Kercher Murder
Is not over for Amanda Knox who vowed to fight with her head “held high” to prove her innocence after the highest court in Italy ordered her to stand trial again for the killing of her former roommate, British exchange student Meredith Kercher.
Knox spent four years in prison before an appellate court overturned her murder conviction, citing lack of evidence against her in the 2007 death of Kercher in Perugia, Italy.
Knox said it had been “painful” to hear the news that the court had ordered a retrial, in a statement issued through the family’s PR spokesman, David Marriott.
The prosecution’s case against her “has been repeatedly revealed to be completely unfounded and unfair,” she said, and an “objective investigation” and “capable prosecution” are needed if any questions remain about her innocence.
“The prosecution responsible for the many discrepancies in their work must be made to answer for them, for Raffaele’s sake, my sake, and most especially for the sake of Meredith’s family. Our hearts go out to them,” she said.
“No matter what happens, my family and I will face this continuing legal battle as we always have, confident in the truth and with our heads held high in the face of wrongful accusations and unreasonable adversity.”
