    (Black) New Jersey mom charged with killing newborn by setting her on fire: police
Hyphernkemberly DorvilierPEMBERTON TWP., N.J. -- Authorities have charged a woman with killing her newborn daughter by setting the baby on fire in the middle of a road in Burlington County, New Jersey. Hyphernkemberly Dorvilier, 22, of Pemberton Township, is charged with one count of murder. She is being held on $500,000 bail. Officers were called to the unit block of Simontown Road around 11:00 p.m. Friday. Dave Joseph and his family made the discovery. They say they had no idea what was on fire outside of their home but saw Dorvilier standing in front of an SUV, behind the fire. She allegedly told Joseph that she was burning dog waste she found in her SUV. He told her to put it out. "She grabbed a bottle of water, poured it on there, my wife was down there and said it was a baby," said Joseph. Horrified, Joseph and his wife called 911 and held Dorvilier until police arrived and she was taken into custody. The baby was transferred to St. Christopher's Hospital for Children where she later died. - (Burned Alive!)

    “She Couldn’t Breathe” – The Brutal Murder of 19 Year Old Jessica Lane Chambers…. (With Video)
Jessica Lane Chambers and friend19-Year-Old Jessica Lane Chambers was brutally murdered in Mississippi two nights ago. Unfortunately the details of her murder are so horrific to comprehend they make the current racial anxiety in the headlines seem small, yet also potentially more explosive. …When the fire department got there, she was walking down the road on fire. […] They squirted lighter fluid down her throat and in her nose… Yes, Jessica was white; and no, by all accounts her killer(s) were not. She wasn’t just attacked, beaten, and burned alive – she was brutalized beyond all horrific imaginings. When you identify what took place, and contrast her horrific murder against the current national dialogue, you can also understand why the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation (MBI), and all Mississippi politicians, will most likely lead the media to bury this story as quick as possible. - (Black-on-white) - (Burned Alive!)

    Man braved ‘ring of fire’ to help woman rape and set on fire by black in Fairmount Park
black rapistDeon McPherson says he took a few breaths on a cold, foggy Friday night in Fairmount Park and ran into a 100-yard-wide “ring of fire” spreading across the lawn to help a badly burned woman. His girlfriend, Johnnye Marshall, says she woke him up after hearing someone in the park south of their apartment shrieking over and over, interspersed with cries of “help.” At first, they thought it might be someone engaged in late-night foolishness. But after McPherson pulled on some clothes and arrived at the fire, he says, he quickly realized how serious it was. He spotted a woman, who according to Wichita police had been sexually assaulted, hit on the head and set on fire. On Monday, a Wichita police official pleaded for the public’s help in solving the “disgusting crime.” The woman was on the ground, almost in a crawl, barely moving and naked. She had been raped and burned by an unknown black man. - (Burned Alive!)

Muskingum County Common Pleas Judge Kelly Cottrill followed the sentencing recommendation the jury made on Oct. 22.

    "Crazy" homeless black woman responsible for burning four white people alive
Mary SmithJennifer CarlsonJoseph SchultzJerod PilgreenJason BowersCHICAGO - A woman suspected of starting a series of fires near Wrigley Field, including one that killed four people, was charged Monday with murder, authorities said.

Mary Smith, 43, was charged with four counts of first-degree murder and two counts of aggravated arson, the Cook County state's attorney office said.

Police identified Smith after witnesses reported seeing an unkempt woman, wearing clear plastic bags on her feet, near the scene of three small fires, said Edward O'Donnell, commander of the police department's bomb and arson unit.

The fourth fire, reported shortly after 7 a.m. Saturday within walking distance of the others, quickly spread through a three-story apartment building, killing four people inside a top-floor apartment, fire officials said.

Smith made a number of self-incriminating statements during questioning and witnesses identified her from "numerous" lineups, police said. She appeared coherent and calm, they said.

“There's some stuff that she knew too well, so she gave statements that would put her on the scene,” Area 3 Police Comdr. Thomas Byrne said.

Prosecutors: Negress Set Fatal Fire To Warm Up Cold Feet
The fire early Saturday at 3553 N. Fremont claimed the lives of single mother Jennifer Carlson, 24, her roommate Jason Bowers, 23, and two friends -- Jerod Pilgreen, 21, of Poplar Grove and Joseph Schultz of Belvidere. Carlson and Bowers rented a third-floor unit. A fifth person jumped from a third-floor window at the burning apartment building. The survivor might have inadvertently aided the fire’s spread, said police Bomb and Arson unit Cmdr. Ed O’Donnell. The man left his apartment door open, which “allowed superheated air and gases to enter,” O’Donnell said. At Smith’s bond hearing, Assistant State’s Attorney Mary Lacy said Smith set the fire in an interior stairwell at 3553 N. Fremont just before 7 a.m. Saturday. "She said she lost her shoes that night and her feet were cold," Lacy said. At the request of Smith’s lawyer, Assistant Public Defender Dayna Woodbury, Hyland sent Smith to Cook County’s Cermak Hospital instead of the jail. “All indications are she is seriously mentally ill,’’ said Woodbury. “She needs medication. She needs to see a doctor.’’ - (Newsroom) - (crime) - (Black-on-white) - (Burned Alive!)

    5 Year-Old Lousiana Boy May Have Been Burned Alive by Ex-boyfriend in Vendetta Against His Mother
Terrence CarterCorinthian HoustonLa. — Investigators believe a 5-year-old boy was kidnapped in a "vendetta" against his mother and burned alive in an abandoned house, where police found his small body tied to a leather chair. Sheriff Johnny Ray Norman said Monday that 26-year-old Terrence Carter, arrested in connection with the kidnapping and killing, had been talking to investigators. Carter, who lived with his mother next door to the abandoned house, was arrested after the boy's body was found.

Norman said an electrical cord was wrapped around the child's neck, but he was not believed to have been strangled. An autopsy was pending.
