Ohio Man Sentenced for Raping and Impregnating 14-Year-Old Twins and Their 12-Year-Old Sister


An Ohio man has been sentenced to 27 years in prison after impregnating 14-year-old twins and their 12-year-old sister while he was living in their home with them, PEOPLE confirms.

Last November, Arnold Perry, 34, pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree felony rape and a third-degree felony count of sexual battery, Mahoning County Common Pleas Court records show.

On Thursday, Judge Maureen Sweeney sentenced Perry to 27 years in prison – two years more than the sentence prosecutors recommended, The Vindicator reports.

Perry was friends with the victims’ mother, who let him stay with her and her family at their Youngstown home when he had nowhere to live, assistant prosecutor Jennifer McLaughlin told the judge, per the Associated Press.

Okla. Mom Allegedly Murders Her Husband — and Then Their 8-Year-Old Son IDs Her as the Suspect

An Oklahoma woman allegedly fatally stabbed her husband on Saturday night — and was later identified to police as the murder suspect by the couple’s 8-year-old son, PEOPLE confirms.

Lt. Brad Rule of the Del City, Oklahoma, police tells PEOPLE that officers responded Sunday to a call at the home of Amber McMurtrey and Neil Vaughn to find Vaughn in the driveway with a stab wound to the chest.

Vaughn later died from his injuries at the hospital, Rule says.

When questioned by officers, the 34-year-old McMurtrey — who according to Rule, smelled of alcohol and had bloodshot eyes — was allegedly uncooperative and said only that Vaughn had been stabbed outside the house, Rule says.

But police obtained a search warrant and found a trail of blood going from inside the house to the driveway, Rule says. He alleges authorities also found drug paraphernalia and a marijuana cigarette inside the home.

Here’s What 4 Children Of Serial Killers Have To Say About Their Notorious Parents

Growing up is hard enough. Imagine if your father is a notorious serial killer. Here’s what four children had to say about their dads in their own words.

1. “Happy Face Killer’s” Daughter

Melissa Moore is the daughter of serial killer Keith Jesperson, who killed eight people in the 1990s. He received the nickname “Happy Face Killer” because of the smiley face he doodled onto letters he wrote. Those letters detailed his crimes, which he bragged about.

Moore has taken a different route than her father. Instead of hurting people, she has become an advocate for other children of killers. She has been in touch with more than 100 relatives of murderers and helps them share their stories. She is a crime correspondent and the host/executive producer of LMN’s show “Monster in My Family.”

As for her father, she doesn’t have kind words.

“I’m ashamed that he’s my dad,” Moore told a

David Allen Turpin, 57, and his 49-year-old wife Louise Anna Turpin were booked Monday on suspicion of nine counts of torture and 10 counts of child endangerment after their 17-year-old daughter “escaped” from their home and called 911 on Jan. 14 to report that her 12 brothers and sisters were being held captive by their parents and that some of her siblings were bound with chains and padlocks, according to a Riverside County Sheriff’s Department press release obtained by PEOPLE.

Gianni Versace’s Family Breaks Their Silence on American Crime Story

With anything of the “true crime” genre, there will be criticism of how factually events are represented—and this time, it’s coming directly from the subject’s family. The Versaces are reportedly not big fans of Ryan Murphy’s upcoming American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace. The family has released a statement concerning Murphy’s fictionalization of Gianni Versace’s murder by Andrew Cunanan, publicly denouncing the upcoming FX drama series and urging viewers to watch the show with a grain of salt.

“The Versace family has neither authorized nor had any involvement whatsoever in the forthcoming TV series about the death of Mr. Gianni Versace. Since Versace did not authorize the book on which it is partly based nor has it

Best books of 2017: indie publishers on their favourite books of the year

Sarah Davis Goff

Co-director, Tramp Press

The book that made my year: We spoke last year about Mike McCormack’s wonderful Solar Bones, which garnered rave reviews and a rake of prizes including the Goldsmiths and two BGE Irish Book Awards. We suspected it was only gathering speed – and we were so delighted when it was longlisted for the 2017 Man Booker (thanks to Canongate publishing their gorgeous edition). And Sara Baume’s wondrous A Line Made By Walking helped make 2017 a brilliant year.
Our book that deserved to do better: Our Recovered Voices series is how we republish lost classics: this year we followed up our very successful haunted house story, The Uninvited, with

Scott Foley and Dave Annable Share Their Thoughts on the Psychological Thriller Final Vision

Investigation Discovery continues its month-long rollout of movies about mayhem and mystery with the premiere of the twisted psychological thriller Final Vision, starring Scott Foley as Jeffrey MacDonald, a respected U.S. Army Green Beret doctor who is suspected in the murder of his wife and young children, and Dave Annable as Joe McGinniss, author of the 1983 best-selling true crime book Fatal Vision, which spells out his impression of the events of that fatal night.

To this day, MacDonald has maintained his innocence and is hoping for a new trial that will throw out the guilty verdict and set him free, while until his death, McGinniss stood by his belief that the doctor was guilty.

Interestingly, the two actors who play the roles have differing beliefs as to MacDonald’s innocence or guilt in line with their characters, which they shared with Parade.com in this exclusive interview.
