New York's 'cannibal cop' back in spotlight at appeals court

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/13/2015 - 01:01

Former New York City police officer Valle leaves a court in New YorkBy Joseph Ax NEW YORK (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday appeared sharply divided on whether to reinstate the conviction of New York's so-called "cannibal cop," who was found guilty of plotting to kidnap and devour women and then set free when a judge overturned the jury's verdict. Former New York City police officer Gilberto Valle was convicted in March 2013, based largely on his exchanges with others on a dark fetish website about his desire to torture and kill several women he knew, including his wife. The office of Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara on Tuesday urged the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to send Valle back to prison, arguing that he took other steps such as researching chloroform recipes.

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 05/13/2015 - 01:00
By Kim Palmer CLEVELAND (Reuters) - An Ohio sheriff looking into the death of a 12-year-old boy shot by two Cleveland police officers while he played with a replica gun said on Tuesday the investigation was mostly complete, but provided few details.

Timothy Loehmann, the officer who shot Rice, and Frank Garmback, who was driving the police squad car, are white. Rice was black.
