Gabriel Fernandez’s Brother Details Deadly Abuse – People

In court on Wednesday, a California teen described the relentless assaults inflicted on his 8-year-old brother for months until, at last, the little boy was dead.

Los Angeles County prosecutors argue Gabriel Fernandez was the victim of an eight-month-long campaign of terror by his mother and her boyfriend, who were “conspiring together to deceive everyone in order to torture [him] to death,” after he moved to live with them in 2012, NBC Los Angeles reports.

On Wednesday, according to local TV stations CBS Los Angeles and KABC, Gabriel’s 16-year-old brother, Ezequiel, testified in horrific detail about the abuse the boy suffered at the hands of Isauro Aguirre.

Aguirre, 37, is on trial in L.A. Superior Court for murder in Gabriel’s May 2013 death.

Manson Family Cult Member Dianne Lake Speaks Out – People

Though it’s been more than 50 years since Dianne Lake was a teenager in the Los Angeles area, deep into the counterculture of the 1960s, there’s one memory that stands out to her more than the others: the first time she met Charles Manson.

“He was extremely intelligent,” Lake, now 64 and living outside of L.A., tells PEOPLE. “He had the incredible ability to pick up on other people’s weaknesses and their needs and their desires, and he could fulfill those.”

It’s a skill Manson turned to deadly ends, as Lake would learn.

For the first time in 47 years, she is breaking her silence about living with him and being the youngest member of his cult, the so-called “Manson family.”

In Member of the Family, a new book out Oct. 24 and exclusively excerpted in PEOPLE, Lake details her experiences falling under Manson’s spell — and, eventually, how she was free of him.

In 1967,

Cold Medicine Killing: Woman Had 123 Knife Wounds – People

A North Carolina woman had been slashed and stabbed 123 times when her newlywed husband claimed he awoke last month — after taking too much cold medicine the night before — to find her dead body, according to an autopsy report released on Tuesday morning.

Matthew James Phelps, a 27-year-old aspiring pastor, called authorities early on Sept. 1 to report the discovery of his wife’s body in their two-bedroom townhouse in Raleigh, North Carolina.

“I had a dream, and then I turn on the lights and she’s dead on the floor,” he told the dispatcher in the 911 call obtained by PEOPLE. “I have blood all over me, and there’s a bloody knife on the bed, and I think I did it.”

“I took more medicine than I should have,” he continued, growing progressively more distraught. “I took Coricidin Cough and Cold because

Why Anthony Weiner Walked Free After Being Sentenced – People

Just hours after Anthony Weiner was sentenced Monday to 21 months in prison with three years probation for sending sexually explicit messages and photos to a 15-year-old girl, the former New York congressman was seen leaving his apartment building in Manhattan.

Weiner, 53, wore a blue T-shirt and orange Mets baseball cap as he made his way onto the subway after his court hearing, and caused some to wonder why he was not yet behind bars.

Weiner will begin serving time on Nov. 6. He also must register as a sex offender after his prison term is complete and cannot appeal his sentence due to his guilty plea.
