On Wednesday, Derek Medina of South Miami has been found guilty of second-degree murder after posting a photo of his wife's dead body on Facebook with a note that explained the reason for his actions.

The Washington Post reported Friday that a reporter asked the retired neuro-surgeon his thoughts about the infamous legal dispute between Schiavo's husband and her family over whether to continue her feeding tube.
"We face those kinds of issues all the time and while I don't believe in euthanasia, you have to recognize that people that are in that condition do have a series of medical problems that occur that will take them out," declared Carson. more >>
Corey Jones' family was demanding answers after the dedicated church musician was gunned down by a Florida police officer along a dark interstate entrance ramp last Sunday, just hours before he had to be at church to backup the choir.
