first_imgA Dearborn County man is behind bars after authorities said he threatened to kill an Aurora woman and her two children.Dwayne Breakiron Jr., 23, was arrested and charged with Burglary, Intimidation with a Deadly Weapon, Criminal Mischief, and Inteference with Reporting a Crime.On Friday evening, the female victim and her children arrived at her home, however, remained in the vehicle because Breakiron was outside of her residence, Aurora Police Chief Josh Daugherty said.“The victim looked at her rear view mirror and saw Dwayne moving quickly towards her car. She started to drive away, and he jumped on top of her vehicle and held on while she and her two young children were trying to get away from him. Dwayne finally got off and she and her children went to a friend’s house to get away,” Daugherty said.The victim and children returned to the home during the early morning hours of Saturday. Authorities said Breakiron returned to the residence and entered the house while the family was asleep.Daugherty said, “Dwayne came into the bedroom where they were sleeping and made the victim get out of bed. The victim said that Dwayne took her to her living room and showed her a long gun and bullets and threatened to kill them all.”Police believe the gun was a .22 caliber rifle.Investigators allege the children did hear the suspect tell their mother he was going to kill them with the gun, but couldn’t find the clip to put the bullets in. Breakiron tried to force the woman to help find the clip, police said.“Dwayne made their mother give him the only cell phone in the house so that no one could call the police,” the police chief cited. Police also said the suspect threatened to strangle the family pet Chinchilla.No word on the connection between the victim and suspect, but Police Chief Daughtery called it domestic violence in an email.last_img read more

State takes child after his parents refuse ‘live-saving’ chemotherapy treatment

first_imgA couple in Tampa, Florida are fighting for the custody of their young son after the state revoked their custody due to their refusal to allow their son to receive a potentially life-saving chemotherapy treatment.Joshua McAdams and Taylor Bland-Ball were told that their three-year-old son Noah has cancer and needs to undergo chemotherapy, however, both McAdams and Bland-Ball said that they would rather treat the cancer with natural remedies. When they failed to show up to his appointment for treatment, Florida authorities issued an endangered child alert.The family was eventually located in Kentucky and the child was brought back to Florida.While Attorney Elisha Roy, who is representing the parents, says she agrees with the couple and their right to choose what is best for their child, she says the state also has the responsibility to provide medical treatment to a child in a life or death scenario even if the parents disagree.“Basically the state is coming in and saying if we think that this child can live and what you’re going to do is make this child die, then we have a compelling interest to make the child live and stand in the way of your decision,” she says.Though Noah has been brought back to Florida to receive the treatment, a judge has stalled the treatment and is allowing his parents the opportunity to seek a second opinion. If they can prove their method will provide the life-saving treatment Noah needs, the state will not administer the chemotherapy.As for now Noah has been turned over to his maternal grandparents.last_img read more
