Teenager Allegedly Enlisted Friends to Fatally Stab His Mom After First Trying to Poison Her Wine

 

Before she was fatally strangled on Saturday night, Maine mother Kimberly Mironovas, 47, allegedly survived a previous attempt on her life and didn’t even know it.

According to media reports on Mironovas’ killing, Maine State Police investigators allege she was killed by her teenage son, who, they claim, enlisted the help of two friends to strangle and stab his mom in the neck while she slept, the Kennebec Journal reports.

Citing court records, the Bangor Daily News reports the son is being held without bond on charges of intentional or knowing murder and criminal conspiracy to commit murder. (PEOPLE is not naming the son or the other suspects because prosecutors have not yet determined whether they will be charged as adults.)

Police allege the son and the same two friends attempted to murder his mother previously. The trio allegedly crushed up pills they put into her wine, but she

Feinberg Forecast: First Read on 2018 Emmys Race

Rachel Brosnahan on 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel'

The charts below reflect how THR’s awards columnist Scott Feinberg believes the Emmy standings would look if voting ended today. They are formulated using a combination of personal impressions (from sampling many programs), historical considerations (how other shows with similar pedigrees have resonated), precursor awards (some groups have historically correlated with the TV Academy more than others) and consultations with industry insiders (including voters, content creators, awards strategists and fellow members of the press).

Emmys 2018: ‘American Crime Story’ could become the first show since ‘Prime Suspect’ to repeat as Best Limited Series

This spring FX’s “American Crime Story” returned for its second season, “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” which explores the murder of the famous fashion designer (played by Edgar Ramirez) by serial killer Andrew Cunanan (played by Darren Criss). It’s the early front-runner to win Best Limited Series based on the combined predictions of hundreds of Gold Derby users who have entered their picks in our predictions center thus far. The first season of “ACS,” “The People v. O.J. Simpson,” also won top honors in 2016, so a victory for “Versace” would make this the first series since “Prime Suspect” to repeat as Best Limited Series.

Anthologies have had a TV revival in recent years. Ryan Murphy helped re-popularize the form with “American Horror Story,” which debuted in 2011. Since then we’ve seen other anthologies like “Fargo,” “American Crime” and “Black Mirror” earn

In ‘Bomb City,’ First-Time Filmmakers Tell True Crime Story From …

Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit http://www.npr.org/.

SARAH MCCAMMON, HOST:

A new true crime movie by first-time Texas filmmakers is getting good reviews. It’s called “Bomb City,” and it recounts the killing of a young punk rocker in the town of Amarillo. Nineteen-year-old Brian Deneke was deliberately run over by a high school football player during a fight. NPR’s Wade Goodwyn covered the murder when it happened two decades ago. He has this report on how the story’s being told today.

WADE GOODWYN, BYLINE: The movie “Bomb City” gets its name from the nearby Pantex nuclear weapons assembly plant and also because the cultural conflict between two groups of Amarillo teenagers – the preps and the punks – explodes on the screen. The film opens on the night of the deadly fight.

NJ has ties to the nation’s very first mass shooting and its most recent

Many things are the same when it comes to mass shootings, no matter how far they are apart.

Carly Novell, a 17-year-old student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida made that point to the world after 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz’s walked through her school on Feb. 14 with an AR-15, and killed 17 people.

She hid from the bullets in a closet just like her grandfather Charles Cohen did nearly 70 years ago when Howard Unruh walked through Camden with a German Luger pistol and killed 13 people. Historians have called it the nation’s first mass shooting.

Unruh was before 65-inch ultra high definition TVs, the 24-hour news cycle and social media, but newspapers were saturated with the same debates following the 1949 shooting as today, said Ron Franscell, a true crime author who has researched mass murders extensively, including Unruh’s.

The First Great Crime Novel of 2018

When Zachary Lazar was six, his father was murdered in an Arizona parking garage. Years later, the events of that day brought him and Deborah Luster—a photographer living two blocks away from Lazar in New Orleans, who also had a parent murdered in Phoenix by contract killing—to Angola prison in Louisiana, where the inmates were staging a passion play: The Life of Jesus Christ. The idea was, as he writes in his new novel Vengeance, “that by interpreting this play about the possibility of redemption in the wake of violence, Deborah and I might somehow enact ‘a kind of redemption of our own.’”

Though the novel begins with these events, we soon embark on a Lazar-like narrator’s investigation surrounding the innocence of a fictional inmate he befriends at Angola, named Kendrick King. Like recent true-crime docs, S-Town and The Jinx, the teller gets caught up in the telling, though, this

True crime fans rejoice because ‘the first great mini-series of 2018’ starts this week and the reviews are excellent

If you loved The People v. O.J. Simpson, you’ll be watching this.

In Hollywood circles, there’s no such thing as a bonafide ‘banker’ but if you’re looking for the nearest thing to a guaranteed certainty, Ryan Murphy is the closest thing that you’ll find.
