Theif Steals Painting At Vincent Dinofrio’s Restaurant – Cranston, Rhode Island

An unidentified female suspect was caught on camera stealing a painting off the wall of Vincent Dinofrio’s restaurant. However, even though there were hundreds of people there, no one caught the woman in the act.

The painting was made by a local Cranston, Rhode Island artist. It is worth about $500, and there is a $100 reward to help catch the thief.

No instructions were provided as to how to provide information. Strangely, the name of the restaurant was not mentioned in the article.

Crash Video Files: Charlotte, North Carolina: Quanisha Layjoyce Cherry Killed In Accident With Truck At North Graham Street And West Craighead Road; Adoma Dell Conner Injured And Arrested

One woman was killed in this two-vehicle crash. She was a passenger in a Lincoln Town Car that was struck by a Mack truck. The car driver was injured, but there was no report of injuries when it comes to the truck driver.

Date: Monday, January 6, 2014

Time: About 7 in the morning

City / County / State: Charlotte, North Carolina

Address: Near the intersection of North Graham Street and West Craighead Road

Victims Killed:

1. Quanisha Layjoyce Cherry was 27 years old.

Victims Injured:

Adoma Dell Conner, who was also arrested, sustained minor injuries. He is 29.

Cause:

Police say Conner told them a story about the car going out of control as he hit the brakes. He apparently said the car turned to the left on its own, which is how it ended up in the path of other vehicles. Conner also described having a faulty gear shift, which made it impossible for him to move the Lincoln Town Car before it was struck by the Mack truck.

While police do not believe speed or alcohol is a factor, they arrested Conner based on unspecified evidence. He is suspected of misdemeanor death by vehicle. This is not a felony, so a multi-year prison sentence would not apply if authorities go ahead and prosecute. Misdemeanors often result in probation but could carry a jail sentence of up to about a year.

Criminal Charges?

Despite an arrest, there was no word on formal charges yet.

Crash News Video: Prairie Village, Kansas: Dance Studio Owner, Tiffany Mogenson, Killed In 4-Vehicle Accident; Roy Lee Maney Expected To Be Charged With Vehicular Homicide

KCTV5.com has released a video on a 4-vehicle crash in the Kansas City area. A woman was killed, 2 victims were injured, and a driver is expected to be charged with vehicular homicide.

Date: Friday, October 11, 2013

Time: About 1 in the afternoon

City / County / State: Prairie Village, Kansas

Address: Intersection of 75th Street and Roe Avenue

Victims Killed:

1. Tiffany Mogensen owned a dance studio in Blue Springs, Missouri. Other details, such as her age and exact city of residence, were not provided. But she did live in the general area of Kansas City.

Victims Injured:

2 other victims were said to be injured. Specific details were not available.

Suspect:

Roy Lee Maney appears to be 31 or 32 (sources differ slightly on his age).

Cause:

Mogensen was stopped and waiting for a green light. Maney then allegedly came up from behind and struck her vehicle. The chain reaction resulted in two other cars being hit.

Criminal Charges?

Although not officially charged yet, Maney is expected to be charged with vehicular homicide.

Note that there is some considerable inconsistency in reporting. KSHB says Maney is charged with involuntary manslaughter with DUI. This is a much more serious crime than vehicular homicide. If Maney is charged with this, he could get up to 11 years in prison, according to CrammLawFirm.com. Neither report gives actual details about alleged drunk driving. Instead, they say Maney ran on foot from the accident scene but was caught by police.
