Canadian, nicknamed 'Black Widow,' gets 3 ½ years
Fox News - over 3 years
A 78-year-old Canadian woman dubbed the "Black Widow" has been given a sentence of 3 1/2 years in prison for drugging her newlywed husband. The sentence for Melissa Ann Shepard, who pleaded Monday guilty to administering a noxious substance and failing to provide the necessities of life, will be reduced to two years and nine months because of time served in pretrial custody. Shepard was charged last year after Fred Weeks fell ill while the couple was on a honeymoon. An agreed statement of facts says Shepard slipped tranquilizers into the 75-year-old man's coffee and he was later taken to hospital. He survived. Shepard was convicted of manslaughter in 1992 in the death of her second husband, Gordon Stewart, who she drugged and ran over twice with a car.

Dr. Irene S. Levine: 3 Unforgettable Villa Vacations in Jamaica
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Sharing costs with friends or family can make these opulent villas more affordable for a special vacation. The island of Jamaica is a popular tourist destination because of its tropical climate, craggy coastline with white sandy beaches, lush tree and ground vegetation, verdant golf courses, zesty foods paired with reggae and rum and long tradition of warmth and hospitality. A one-week stay at a five-star, professionally staffed villa in Jamaica doesn't come cheap --especially during high season, which runs from mid-December to mid-April. But the costs of a sybaritic experience can be whittled down substantially when it's split among one or more families, or a tribe of friends. Each of these exceptional properties is uniquely steeped in history, offering privacy, security, luxury amenities and great views. They are self-contained playgrounds that can comfortably accommodate 10 to 18 guests for a mix of rest and relaxation, on-premise activities and nearby exploratio ...

Climb to spread word about hospital’s work
Advertiser & Review - over 4 years
A GREAT Horwood man is scaling western Europe’s highest mountain to raise awareness of the wonderful work of the local children’s hospital where his son has been treated. Experienced climber Gordon Stewart, aged 42, has got together a team of four friends for the attempt on Mont Blanc next month. And as well as raising awareness, he hopes to raise money for the Oxford Children’s Hospital, on the John Radcliffe Hospital site, where his younger son Ewan, aged 21 months has been cared for since he was seven months old. Ewan suffers from a gastric condition which means he can very suddenly become violently ill and dehydrated, and is failing to thrive. Househusband Mr Stewart told the Advertiser: “John Radcliffe has been wonderful to us as a family. It’s our local children’s hospital and I feel like I want to give something back. It’s about spreading the good word and telling people how well we’ve been looked after. “We’ve had quite a hard road with Ewan and they’ve looked after us ...

California Death Penalty Makes Ballot: How Will You Vote?
Aliso Viejo Patch - almost 5 years
An initiative that would replace the death penalty in California with life imprisonment without the possibility of parole has qualified for the November ballot. If it passes, California would become the 18th state in the nation without a death penalty and the 725 California inmates now on death row will have their sentences converted to life in prison. Multiple murderers linked to Orange County are awaiting the death penalty and could be spared if the ban passes, including serial killers Randy Kraft and Rodney Alcala and Samantha Runnion's killer Alejandro Avila. Additionally, there are several pending death penalty cases in Orange County, including the trial of alleged mass murderer Scott Evans Dekraai, alleged homeless serial killer Itzcotal "Izzy" Ocampo and Daniel Patrick Wozniak, an actor accused of killing two people and dismembering one in a Los Alamitos theater. What backers have dubbed the Savings Accountability and Full Enforcement California Act exceeded the 555 ...
