Mom sets daughter's head on fire trying to treat head lice

A Oklahoma mother is behind bars. She is accused of lighting her daughter on fire while trying to treat head lice.

Investigators said 25-year-old Shana Suggs poured gasoline on her daughter's head.

A nearby space heater caught the 5-year-old girl as well as Suggs on fire.

Police say Suggs' live-in boyfriend, Dylan Webster, ran into the bathroom and tried to put the flames out. That was unsuccessful so Webster grabbed a jacket from another room and was finally able to put the flames out.

Suggs and Webster dropped off the other four children that were in the home at the time at the homes of relatives.

After that, they took the girl to the hospital in McAlester, Okla., about 15 minutes away. That's where police were called.

The girl suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns over 60% of her body. She had to be taken to a Tulsa hospital with a burn unit then a Shriners' hospital to be treated.

Suggs was arrested and charged with felony child abuse by injury.

The child is out of the hospital and is in DHS custody.

Cops: Man with 'beer munchies' damaged vending machine after having sex in H.S.

A man and a woman were arrested after they broke into Mainland High School to have sex, and then vandalized the vending machines because the man said he had the "beer munchies," said police.  

Daytona Beach authorities arrested Vincent Ewell, 18, and Lindsay Longbottom, 19, after an officer found them in a car, trying to drive away.

Police said they found open doors and vandalized vending machines after an officer responded to a triggered alarm at the school.

The officer said he heard glass break and then saw the pair in a car.

The two also told police they broke into the school because they needed a place to have sex, so Longbottom's boyfriend would not find out.

Ewell and Longbottom are facing burglary charges.

Police: Woman threw feces at dog owner

An Austin woman who police say threw dog feces at a man she accused of not picking up after his pet was charged with aggravated assault this week.

Rebecca Trammell, 46, confronted the man at her apartment’s dog park in Northwest Austin on Tuesday, picked up dog feces and threw it at him, according to the affidavit for her arrest.

She admitted to police that she then picked up a jagged, 6-inch rock and threw it at the man, missing him, the affidavit says. Next, she spat in his face, the affidavit says.

Trammell told police that she then wanted to grab another man’s dog at the park because she said it wasn’t on a leash, according to the affidavit. When the man put himself between Trammell and his dog, she grabbed his leash, pulling it toward her and cutting the man’s right hand.f

The second man told police he witnessed Trammell throwing the dog feces at the first man, and that when she told the man to pick up his dog’s feces he yelled back that he was getting a bag.

Jail records show Trammell was still in custody Thursday evening. She also faces a misdemeanor charge of assault causing bodily injury.

Her bail is set at $12,000.

Move over Puppy Bowl, here come the kitties

Perhaps someone at the Hallmark Channel noted the proliferation of cat videos on the Internet, or possibly someone just thought felines should have equal time when it comes to faux sporting events.

For whatever reason, the 2014 Superbowl will now have a new foe fighting for eyeballs -- the Kitten Bowl.

The three hour special will air beginning at noon, Eastern Time, February 2, 2014 on the Hallmark Channel.

It will, in the network's words, feature the "world’s most adorable – and adoptable – kittens in the mother lode of cat agility competition."

It goes on to say "the special, which will be presented annually, is supported by the network’s animal welfare partner, American Humane Association, and is just one of many high-profile commitments the company has made to its evergreen Pet Project initiative. With American Humane Association, Hallmark Channel’s in-house production team will scour rescue associations and shelters searching for kitty competitors whose enduring prize will be a loving, forever home."

“Creating another programming event to reinforce Hallmark Channel’s Pet Project, our corporate pet adoption and safety initiative, enhances the profile of the plight of shelter animals in our country while providing fun, family-oriented entertainment to our viewers. We are very proud of our association with American Humane Association and their support of our work in this area,” said Bill Abbott, President & CEO, Crown Media Family Networks, home of Hallmark Channel and Hallmark Movie Channel.

The network added: "The agility competition will consist of a basic obstacle course of hurdles of varying heights, A-frame Alpine Scratchers, tunnels, hoop jumps, and weave poles. Lures, like laser pointers, and toys on a string will be used to get the kittens through the course, but food will not allowed. Cat agility competitions, which are modeled after the equestrian sport of show jumping, normally include rules which state that cats must complete a course in under 270 seconds, completing each obstacle in a prescribed manner. In a typical feline agility contest, a cat would complete between six and fourteen obstacles, with winning cats completing the course in ten seconds or less. In 'Kitten Bowl,' however, the competitors are kittens and any form of cuteness is the key to the game."

Kaedy's Conversations - David Coverdale

Kaedy Kiely interviewed David Coverdale of Whitesnake back in 2000 - listen to part one.

She asked about Coverdale’s relationship with the surviving members of Led Zeppelin, since he had worked with Jimmy Page on the Coverdale/Page project.(listen)

 

 

After recording two solo albums, former Deep Purple vocalist David Coverdale formed Whitesnake around 1977. In the glut of hard rock and heavy metal bands of the late '70s, their first albums got somewhat lost in the shuffle, although they were fairly popular in Europe and Japan. During 1982, Coverdale took some time off so he could take care of his sick daughter. When he re-emerged with a new version of Whitesnake in 1984, the band sounded revitalized and energetic. Slide It In may have relied on Led Zeppelin's and Deep Purple's old tricks, but the band had a knack for writing hooks; the record became their first platinum album. Three years later, Whitesnake released an eponymous album (titled 1987 in Europe) that was even better. Portions of the album were blatantly derivative -- "Still of the Night" was a dead ringer for early Zeppelin -- but the group could write powerful, heavy rockers like "Here I Go Again" that were driven as much by melody as riffs, as well as hit power ballads like "Is This Love."Whitesnake was an enormous international success, selling over six million copies in the U.S. alone.

Before they recorded their follow-up, 1989's Slip of the Tongue, Coverdale again assembled a completely new version of the band, featuring guitar virtuoso Steve Vai. Although the record went platinum, it was a considerable disappointment after the across-the-board success of Whitesnake. Coverdale put Whitesnake on hiatus after that album. In 1993, he released a collaboration with former Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page that was surprisingly lackluster. The following year, Whitesnake issued a greatest-hits album in the U.S. and Canada focusing solely on material from their final three albums (as well as containing a few unreleased tracks).

In 1997, Coverdale resurrected Whitesnake (guitarist Adrian Vandenberg was the only remaining member of the group's latter-day lineup), issuing Restless Heart the same year. Surprisingly, the album wasn't even issued in the United States. On the ensuing tour, Coverdale and Vandenberg performed an "unplugged" show in Japan that was recorded and issued the following year under the title Starkers in Tokyo. By the late '90s, however, Coverdale once again put Whitesnake on hold, as he concentrated on recording his first solo album in nearly 22 years. Coverdale's Into the Light was issued in September 2000, featuring journeyman guitarist Earl Slick. After a lengthy hiatus that saw the release of countless "greatest-hits" and "live" collections, the band returned in 2008 with the impressive Good to Be Bad. Coverdale and Whitesnake toured the album throughout Europe and Japan. The band returned to the recording studio in 2010 with new members bassist Michael Devin (formerly of Lynch Mob) and drummer Brian Tichy, who appeared alongside guitarists Doug Aldrich and Reb Beach, and guest keyboardist Timothy Drury (as well as Coverdale's son Jasper on backing vocals on various tracks). The band's 11th album, Forevermore, was preceded by the issue of the single, "Love Will Set You Free," and released in the spring of 2011. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine & Greg Prato, Rovi
