'Judge Judy' sparks hammer attack

'Judge Judy' sparks hammer attack?

'Judge Judy' sparks hammer attack?, Janet Knowles, 62, is apparently not a fan of "Judge Judy." Police say Knowles  attacked her husband with a hammer on Sunday "because Judge Judy was on the television"

The man told officers he had been watching the show when Knowles got "upset with Judge Judy" and hit him in the head and arm with the hammer. Knowles, who reportedly had difficulty conversing coherently with police, confessed that she attacked the man...
Police have released a recording of a confession from one of the suspects in the Connecticut home invasion that resulted in the deaths of a mother and her two daughters, NBC Connecticut reported on Tuesday.
Joshua Komisarjevsky gave the account to Cheshire police on the day in July, 2007, that Jennifer Hawke-Petit, and her daughters Hayley, 17, and Michaela, 11, died in what the accused called "a home invasion gone terribly wrong." The tape, which was released to the public late Monday, was played to jurors last week, NBC Connecticut reported.
In the audiotaped confession, Komisarjevsky said he spotted Michaela and her mother at a supermarket, followed them home and later returned with his co-defendant, Steven Hayes.
The three family members died after the house was doused in gasoline and set on fire. The husband, Dr. William Petit, survived the attack. Komisarjevsky faces a possible death sentence if he's convicted. Hayes was convicted last year and is on death row.During his confession, Komisarjevsky described what he felt as he followed Hawke-Petit and her daughter from the supermarket.
"For whatever reason I chose to follow the mom and the daughter to their house and saw they lived in a very nice house and had a very nice car," he said according to the recording. "I thought it would be nice to be there someday and not have to worry about financial problems and stress and all that that goes with it."
In the recording, Komisarjevsky says he and Hayes later broke into the house in Cheshire, beat Dr. Petit with a baseball bat, then tied him, his wife and two daughters up as they looked for money. Police say Hayes later drove Hawke-Petit to a bank so she could make a withdrawal, and then raped and strangled her after they returned to the house.
The hottest thing on the griddle at the Las Palmas restaurant these days isn't the food — it's the image of Our Lady of Guadalupe that a cook says she saw on the griddle.
Restaurant manager Brenda Martinez says more than 100 people have flocked to the small town of Calexico on the California-Mexico border to gaze at the likeness of the Virgin Mary since it was discovered as the griddle was being cleaned.
Among the awe-struck was a group of masked Mexican wrestlers who arrived Thursday for an exhibition at a nearby swap meet.
One, known as Mr. Tempest, says: "This is amazing. It's a true miracle."
