08:54 0 Comments
On Monday, February 29,  A 40-year-old man in Kisii County, Kenya, was sentenced to 200 years in prison for killing his 4 children. Kisii resident judge, Joseph Karanja ruled that Misati will serve the sentence concurrently for 50 years for each of the four counts of murder he had been charged with.

According to Standard Digital News, the case has been in court since 2013 when Misati was charged with killing his four children, Toto, 3, Brian, 9, Ontoyo, 7, and Naomi Mogutu, 5.

 Lukas Misati committed the crime outside their rental houses in Egesa in Kitutu Chae Central, on the night of November 10, 2012 following a feud with his wife, Helen Kemunto (pictured)

In her affidavit, Kemunto told the court that her husband came home on the night of that fateful day, woke her up and said he wanted them to move. She refused and Misati attacked her with a knife. Kemunto escaped with injuries and managed to get treatment at a nearby hospital.

"I managed to escape and went to seek treatment at Kisii Level Five Hospital," the affdiavit reads. But when she returned home, she found the children missing.

 "I thought they had shifted to another house. My husband called our landlady and told her to inform me that i pick my children from a nearby bush. However, one of the children lay dead at the doorstep while the other three bodies were in the nearby nappier grass"

A postmortem carried out on the bodies revealed that the deaths were caused by strangulation. Misati was on the run for one year before he was picked up by the police on November 21, 2013. After his sentencing, Misati recounted that everything happened so fast to be able to tell what happened that night.

Pregnant woman discovers her lover married a tourist while in labour - after seeing a pic of their wedding day on FB

07:50 0 Comments
24 year old Heather McGillion said she was devastated to discover her partner Adonis Rodriguez , 21, had married another woman while she was giving birth to their son. She discovered the shocking news when a friend sent her a loved-up wedding photo of Adonis and his new wife, a German tourist called Julia. Heather said she met Adonis while were both working as entertainers at a hotel in the Dominican Republic and fell pregnant a year later.

She returned home to give birth after experiencing complications, but while she was in labour, Adonis tied the knot with Julia. He later admitted to Heather that he had married Julia and has said he is sorry. She has returned to the Caribbean Island, where her mother lives, so that her son can have a relationship with his father.

 Heather, a trained dancer, said: 'When I opened the message it felt like I had been hit by a double-decker bus. Adonis had his arms around a woman and she was wearing a wedding dress. It didn't make sense and the more I thought about it, the more absurd it was.We had only been apart for a few weeks and there was no way Adonis could have met another woman and arranged a wedding in less than a month.'
'For a second I didn't twig who it was. Then to my horror I realised it was Julia,' she recalled.
'She was a German tourist who came to stay at the hotel. About a year before I had noticed Adonis had become friends with her on Facebook and they had been messaging each other.

'It was nothing sexual but it made me feel uneasy. But Adonis assured me there was nothing going on and when I discovered I was pregnant I forgot all about it.'

When Heather called Adonis to confront him about he admitted everything.
She also noticed in the wedding photos that Julia, 31, had undergone a radical makeover.
She added: 'She was unrecognisable from the slightly plump, mousy woman I had seen on Adonis's Facebook page.

'In fact she now looked like me. She had lost weight and dyed her hair to look just like me, only with added wrinkles.
'When I phoned Adonis and asked "Why is Julia in a wedding dress?", there was a pause and then he said: "Heather, I'm so sorry". I hung up and burst into tears.'

Heather later discovered that after Adonis had moved to another hotel to find work, he had been meeting up with Julia.
She had travelled to visit him around four times and they planned the wedding to take place while she was back in the UK.
Heather has returned to the Dominican Republic with Diego, who is now three months old, and is allowing Adonis to visit him.
She said: 'My mum has retired here so I have come out again with my son.
'Despite everything, I want Diego to have a father so Adonis is in regular contact with him but it's very hard.
'I feel so foolish for trusting Adonis but I keep telling myself there were no warning signs.
