Member MS-13 gang to be tried as adult for execution-style slayings of Long Island woman and her 2 year old son

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

A teen gang member who was involved in the brutal execution-style slayings of 19 year old Long Island woman, Vanessa Argueta and her 2 year old son Diego will be tried as an adult for his part in the crime according to the Daily News.  Argueta was shot in the head and the chest; little Diego was shot twice in the head.

The Salvadoran boy who was a member of the notorious MS-13 gang, was 17 years old at the time.  He lured the mother and son to an industrial park, where they were shot in the head, the feds say.  The judge gave the go ahead to the prosecution to bring murder in aid of racketeering charges against the thug – similar to what they would slap a mobster with for carrying out a hit, court papers reveal.

“It is hard to imagine a more compelling case for transfer to adult status,” Federal Judge Joseph Bianco wrote in his ruling. “The juvenile justice system, including the limited sentencing options…is simply ill-equipped and woefully insufficient under the circumstances of this case, to adequately address in the interest of justice these most grave charges.”

The defendant, whose name has not been made public, was a juvenile under federal law at the time of the slay. He is now 18.

The murder victim was the daughter of Salvadoran immigrants and had been dating one of the MS-13 members, who later shot her after they fell out, court papers show.

Oprah Winfrey at Kennedy Center Honors 2010: ‘we’ve come the farthest’

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

TV’s Queen of chat Oprah Winfrey singled out Merle Haggard and Barbara Walters who found themselves on the receiving end of her proud response to her lifetime achievement award for the performing arts.

Other artists to receive the award were Paul McCartney, composer Jerry Herman and choreographer Bill T. Jones as well as Haggard.

Haggard the 73-year-old country musician spent three days with the group to celebrate the honor, and said “Ope” was “completely beside herself” about the award.

“I don’t think she’d ever been a recipient of much in her life,” he told Rolling Stone. “She reached over to me, leaned over and said, ‘You know, we’ve come the farthest.'”

Oprah, who was seated next to McCartney and Michelle Obama, gave the First Lady a “I told you so!” look and threw her hands in the air in apparent frustration.

“You know this Oprah, I’m totally responsible for your career,” Walters yelled up at her.  After a slight genuflection then Oprah shared another look with the President’s wife.

The small screen queen’s addition to the 2010 gala was considered controversial because she is not a performing artist, though Haggard had something to say about that.

“Television is certainly a modern method of communication that you can’t overlook and she’s probably the mother figure of that right now,” he told Rolling Stone. “I don’t know how anybody can say she wasn’t deserving of it.”

    Following Felony Charges ‘Teen Mom’ Amber Portwood in Jail

    Tuesday, December 28th, 2010

    ‘Teen Mom’ star Amber Portwood surrendered to Indiana police just hours after it was announced there was a warrant out for her arrest.  The charges include domestic abuse.

    TMZ.com reports that the reality TV star allegedly attacked Gary Shirley, the father of her little girl Leah, three times in 2009 and 2010.  One altercation was caught on tape as MTV filmed ‘Teen Mom.’

    Portwood is charged with two felony counts of domestic battery and one felony count of neglect of a dependent.  There are also some misdemeanor charges of domestic battery.

    “Amber is scared. Gary is here with us. He’s upset, too. It’s just been awful because we were supposed to have Christmas all together with my mom today and [the cops] picked her up an hour before,” Portwood’s brother, Shawn, told E!Online.com.

    She’s been placed on a 24-hour hold and her bail has been set at $5,000 and faces up to three years in jail and a $10,000 fine if convicted.

    In a September interview with PEOPLE, the reality star admitted that she regretted her actions. “I don’t want her [daughter, Leah] to see that and think that it’s okay,” Portwood explained at the time. “We just kind of made that decision because of Leah. We see it affecting her,” she added about the couple’s decision to make sure their fights never become physical.
