Police: Evansville man beat ex-girlfriend, forced sex, cut her hair while she was unconscious

EVANSVILLE, Ind. (AP) — Police say an Evansville man held his ex-girlfriend and her son against their will for six hours, beating the woman, cutting her hair and forcing her into sex.

Willie Charles Steverson was being held without bond Thursday in Vanderburgh County Jail on preliminary charges including criminal confinement, sexual deviate conduct, battery and possession of methamphetamine.

The Evansville Courier & Press reports the woman told police Steverson took her and her 8-year-old son to a house where he beat her, choked her until she passed out and cut two to three feet of her hair while she was unconscious while her son watched TV downstairs.

When her son tried to intervene, police say Steverson beat the boy. After the boy returned downstairs, Steverson allegedly forced the woman to perform oral sex.

Isn’t the first rule of bad break-ups that you don’t get together? for any reason?  alone? This ends my reading and posting of odd articles.  well, it has been a slow deal day…

edible charcoal

And yet another recipe from the Trib, which turned to Homaro Cantu, noted chef and host of Planet Green’s “Future Food,” for a little help in coming up with something to fool your friends.

4 tablespoons squid ink (available from gourmet retailers or online)
1 tablespoon rice wine vinegar
1 teaspoon sugar
pinch of salt
1 loaf unsliced white bread
4 cups vegetable oil

What to do:
1. In a large mixing bowl, mix the squid ink, rice wine vinegar, sugar and salt. Set aside.
2. Heat oil in a medium saucepan to 325 degrees.
3. Cut all of the crust from the bread.
4. Cut rounded cubes to resemble charcoal briquettes or rip the bread to resemble natural charcoal.
5. Toss the bread in the squid ink mixture until fully coated. Lay on a cooling rack with a tray under it to drip dry for 10 minutes.
6. Carefully drop your “briquettes” into the hot oil and cook 2-3 minutes until crispy.

Mom brings dead son to soccer game

and now some light-hearted news from Cafe Mom…


When 17-year-old Cristopher Alexander Jácome Sanguino was shot and killed in a drive-by outside his home in Colombia, I don’t think he imagined that he’d be at a soccer game the next day. That’s exactly where he was, though. Thanks to his mother and 300 screaming fans.

Here’s how it all went down: There were about 15 minutes left in the game. The police were spacing out. And in rushed between 200 to 300 fans, coffin in tow. See, Cristopher was a hard-core fan of Cúcuta Deportivo, one of the teams playing. And it seems like it was his dying wish to be there for this match — except he didn’t know he was going to die. So, is this really sweet or really creepy?

I’m going to go with creepy. I mean, Cristopher died the day before. Abruptly. I can’t imagine having the strength to concoct such a plan at such a time, much less the will to carry it out. Not to mention the fact that I would be really nervous having my loved one’s deceased body parading around such a rowdy place — and that’s body, not urn.

There’s a part of me — part of me — that understands this, though. When someone we love dies, we want to honor them, do as they’d do (which, in this case, not so sure about — I mean, would you want this?). But sometimes, and I’m thinking this was the case here, we’re just flat-out not thinking straight.

Perhaps it would have been less … strange if Cristopher’s family had some sort of ceremony at their house with the game on? Or, and I hate to be crass here, if they brought him to the game if he was cremated. To bum-rush a stadium with thousands of drunk, fired-up fans? Doesn’t seem like the safest place for a dead body.

Either way, it’s incredibly sad that Cristopher was killed at such a young age and in such a violent way. If it brought his mother some solace, more power to her. I may be a bit straight-laced, but bringing deceased bodies to soccer games just isn’t for me.

Obese Ohio Man Found Fused to Chair

Wow, and here I thought I was gonna be stuck posting more of those “found dead/decomposed under piles of garbage” stories about hoarders…better news stories ahead, thanks to Fox!

A morbidly obese Ohio man was in the hospital Tuesday after police found him fused to a chair he had not moved from in two years and were forced to cut a hole in the wall of his house just to get him out, WTRF-TV reported.

The unnamed man lived with two able-bodied roommates — including his girlfriend, who officials said fed him since he never got up — in a home in Bellaire, Ohio. The roommates called police upon finding the man unresponsive on Sunday.

Officers who responded to the scene said that the man’s skin was fused to the fabric of chair and that he was sitting in his own feces and urine with maggots visible.

One officer said it was the worst thing he had ever responded to. Another told the local TV station he had to throw away his uniform after helping remove the man from the chair.

“The living room where the man lived in his chair was very filthy, very deplorable. It’s unbelievable that somebody lives in conditions like that,” Jim Chase, a local city code enforcer, told WTRF.

“I instructed the landlord this [Monday] morning and the two people, the tenants at the house, they had to get it cleaned, there’s no way they can live in something like that, and so they are working on it,” he added.

The landlord told WTRF that the man used to be an active person and said she had no idea how bad his condition was since he covered himself with a blanket every time she came to visit.

IL DUI laws – USA’s standup comedians

Another nice news story about our (dys)functional legal system.

Officials: Elgin woman charged with 6th DUI

by George Houde

Bond was set at $100,000 today for an Elgin woman who authorities said was arrested for DUI for a sixth time.

Sandra L. Uher, 54, of the 1200 block of Maroon Drive, was charged after officials said she ran a stop sign at Shales Parkway and Summit Street in Elgin and struck another car at about 11:30 a.m. Monday.

The 6th DUI charge is an automatic Class X felony under Illinois law, prompting Judge Bridget Hughes to set the high bond in Cook County’s Rolling Meadows branch court. Conviction on a Class X charge means a minimum six years in prison.

Uher and the female driver of the other car were taken to Sherman Hospital in Elgin for treatment of minor injuries, said Assistant State’s Attorney Bill Cotter. He said police noticed the smell of alcohol on Uher’s breath, and a test showed her blood-alcohol level to be .30, more than three times the legal limit.

The prosecutor said Uher was sentenced to 18 months in prison in 2005 for a felony DUI conviction and has four other DUI convictions dating back to 1999, Cotter said. She was once arrested twice for DUI on the same day, officials said.

I personally know (not well, puhleez) a man who was recently sentenced to 90 days in jail after his 4th DUI.  Back on the streets after 45 days with time off for good behavior…

Museum Day

Well, today was Museum of Science & Industry day for us;  how could a blogger be more industrious, I’d like to know.  Ran a few loads of laundry before we left, then hit the first Jersey Mike’s for subs to take with.  Hours upon hours later, we stop at another Jersey Mike’s and take dinner to go.  Their giant Reuben is incredible!  I’m so glad I took their Freezooka a while ago – it’s sitting all nice and safe in my Buyzooka account.   Anywho, here’s a couple of pictures from today.  See?  I couldn’t stay away from Wags!

And here’s a little something that I found amusing:

Man gets 7 years for forcing modems to call premium numbers

Click here to find out more!March 01, 2011 — IDG News Service —

A New Hampshire man who made US$8 million by installing unwanted dial-up software on computers and then forcing them to call expensive premium telephone numbers was handed down an 82-month sentence on Monday.

Prosecutors say that between 2003 and 2007, Asu Pala and others put together a lucrative business by setting up premium telephone numbers in Germany — similar to the 1-900 numbers used in the U.S. — and then infecting German PCs with software that would automatically dial the numbers for short periods of time.

The guy was only caught after he bought his second Lamborghini for cash…numbnuts…

Honey, I have no idea where those 900 phone calls came from?  Read the entire article here.
