Mother ‘took cocaine then drove head-on into truck and killed her children’

Kanosha Bason has been charged with six counts of vehicular homicide after driving her SUV into a truck and killing her two children as well as her brother (Pictured following a previous arrest/WKBN)

A mother got high on weed and cocaine before driving her car down the wrong side of a freeway and into a truck, killing her two young children, police say.

Kanosha Bason, 25, was also found with alcohol in her system after the February 23 crash that killed her son Noreyion, 7, and daughter Nia’Laisha, 5, as well as her brother Cedrick Lyons, 32, police say.

Lab tests subsequently showed that Bason was not legally over the limit that morning, but that she was likely impaired by what she had consumed.

The horror smash happened after she drove her SUV into oncoming traffic on an interstate connecter along Route 711 in Youngtown, Oh.

It saw her collide head-on with a tractor trailer that was hauling steel beams.

As a result of recent lab results, Bason was charged with vehicular homicide Monday, with US Marshals currently now trying to establish her current whereabouts.

Truck driver Gilbert Demello, who survived the impact told WKBN that Bason was driving at high speed when they collided.

He added: ‘I was going to walk down and the lady said, “There’s three babies, three babies on the ground, dead.”‘

Speaking about the charges, Youngstown City Law director Jeff Limbian said: ‘There were factors under both her urine screens and her blood screens that suggested that we should do it, charges in the alternative.’

Asked about the delay in bringing charges, he said: ‘It’s more important that we get it right than that we get it done fast.’

Incest Dad Who Killed Daughter, Their Baby in Murder-Suicide Abused Her as Small Child, Says Mom!

82C20462-125D-4E61-BFC7-956C6919254C

The man who impregnated his biological daughter before killing her, their infant son and himself in April was physically abusive toward the girl when she was an infant, his ex-wife said in a recent interview.

“I knew from the very beginning that I had to get Katie away from him to give her a chance in life,” Alyssa Pladl told DailyMailTV, explaining her decision to place Katie Pladl for adoption as a small child.

Katie and father Steven Pladl would later reunite. After Steven impregnated Katie, the couple was arrested in January on incest and related charges.

Of the 20-year-old Katie’s subsequent murder at the hands of Stephen Pladl, 45, Alyssa said, “Ultimately, Steve was just finishing off what he started 20 years earlier.”

According to Alyssa, when Katie was little, Steven would give her black and blue marks by pinching her. When she cried as a baby, he would put her in a cooler and close the lid for several minutes.

“He would make me wait a few minutes until I could go back and I’d open the cooler and she would just be gasping for air, drenched in sweat, bruises on her,” Alyssa said.

Despite the abuse, Alyssa stayed with Steven and eventually the couple got married and had two more children.

In the summer of 2015, Katie, who’d been adopted by a couple in Wingdale, New York, tracked down Steven on social media. The following year, she met her biological parents and moved in with them, Alyssa told DailyMailTV.

Alyssa and Steven divorced in 2017, according to arrest warrants obtained by PEOPLE. After the divorce, Katie and Steven continued to live together in Virginia.

Katie and Steven illegally married in July 2017 and in September had a baby boy before moving from Virginia to North Carolina, where they lived publicly as husband and wife.

Katie and Steven were arrested in January but released on bond in February.

On April 12, police in Knightdale, North Carolina, found the couple’s baby dead in their home following a call from Steven’s mom requesting a welfare check on the child after Steven had behaved alarmingly on the phone.

Later that day, Steven drove to Connecticut and fatally shot Katie and her adoptive father, 56-year-old Anthony Fusco. He then drove across the New York border and fatally shot himself.

“It’s been a difficult rollercoaster of emotions because I’m so devastated by the loss of Katie and her adoptive dad and baby,” Alyssa told the DailyMailTV. “But it’s such a relief that I don’t have to look over my shoulder anymore to see if Steve is there.”

A Texas teen was apparently so opposed to getting out of bed that he killed his dad who tried to wake him, according to reports.

Samuel Hammett, 19, was charged Wednesday with murder in the death of his father at their Fort Worth home, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

Family members said the father, Sandy Hammett, tried to rouse his son from bed Tuesday when the teen pulled a knife on him.

“My son said, ‘Why you sleeping all day?’” his grandmother, Alma Hammett, told the newspaper. “My grandson got up and went nose-to-nose with my son. My son pushed my grandson down back on the bed.”

Hammett allegedly grabbed a knife from his drawer and stabbed his dad to death, according to relatives.

Police responded to the home and pronounced the father dead at the scene.

Hammett was taken into custody at Tarrant County Jail where he is being held without bail.

Murder suspect claims Morgan Freeman had sex with granddaughter!!

Morgan Freeman’s step-granddaughter told her would-be killer boyfriend the famed actor had a sexual relationship with her, lawyers disclosed Friday.

The seamy, years-old allegation surfaced during the Manhattan trial of Lamar Davenport who’s accused of butchering his girlfriend E’Dena Hines in 2015.

“E’Dena Hines disclosed to Lamar Davenport and others that her grandfather engaged in a sexually inappropriate relationship with her,” Davenport’s lawyer Annie Costanzo told the court, reading a stipulation agreement signed off on by the prosecution.

It was not immediately clear why the disclosure might be relevant to the case.

Freeman, 80, has been dogged by the claim since 2009 when The National Enquirer reported that the Oscar-winning actor carried on a years-long sexual relationship with Hines.

Three years later, gossip sites reported that the pair were actually planning to wed.

But both Freeman and Hines shot down the rumors.

“The recent reports of any pending marriage or romantic relationship of me to anyone are defamatory fabrications from the tabloid media designed to sell papers,” Morgan said in a statement.

Hines, then 27, said the claims were bogus but painful.

“These stories about me and my grandfather are not only untrue, they are also hurtful to me and my family,” she said at the time.

Freeman’s manager did not immediately return a request for comment. Hines was the daughter of a woman adopted by Freeman and his first wife, Jeannette Adair Bradshaw.

Prosecutors say Davenport, 33, stabbed his girlfriend roughly 25 times in a drug-fueled attack outside the victim’s W. 162nd St. building.

Davenport’s lawyers are mounting an insanity defense, claiming he was in the throes of a PCP-induced psychosis at the time of the murder.

“My opinion was that he lacked substantial capacity to appreciate the wrongfulness of his actions and know the nature and consequences of his conduct,” defense expert Jeremy Colley testified Friday.

“Mr. Davenport did not possess the intent to kill Ms. Hines.”

Defense lawyers said both Davenport and Hines were high on the night of the murders.

BREAKING! Apple Watch provides murder case clues!

Police in Australia have presented data gathered from an Apple Watch as evidence in a murder trial.

Grandmother Myrna Nilsson was wearing the device when she was killed in 2016.

Her daughter-in-law Caroline Nilsson is accused of staging an ambush, after claiming she was tied up by a group of men who entered the house.

But data from the victim’s smartwatch suggests that she was ambushed as she arrived home, and died hours earlier than Ms Nilsson claims.

‘Ambush’

Ms Nilsson told police that her mother-in-law had been followed home by a group of men in a car.

According to ABC News, Ms Nilsson said her mother-in-law had argued with the men outside the house for about 20 minutes, but she did not hear the fatal attack because she was in the kitchen with the door closed.

A neighbour called the police when Ms Nilsson emerged from the house gagged and distressed after 22:00.

Ms Nilsson says the attackers had tied her up and that she had made her way out of the house as soon as they had left.

But prosecutor Carmen Matteo said evidence from the victim’s smartwatch suggested Ms Nilsson had staged the home invasion.

The body of 57-year-old Myrna Nilsson was found in the laundry room of her home in Valley View, Adelaide, in September 2016.

Evidence

“The evidence from the Apple Watch is a foundational piece of evidence for demonstrating the falsity of the defendant’s account to police,” said Ms Matteo.

“A watch of this type… contains sensors capable of tracking the movement and rate of movement of the person wearing it… it also measures the heart rate.”

The prosecution alleged that the watch had recorded data consistent with a person going into shock and losing consciousness.

“The deceased must have been attacked at around 6:38pm and had certainly died by 6:45pm,” she said.

“If that evidence is accepted, it tends to contradict the accused’s version of an argument occurring between the deceased and these men outside the laundry for a period of up to 20 minutes.

“Her emergence from the house was well after 10:00pm and if the Apple Watch evidence is accepted, that is over three hours after the attack on the deceased.”

Magistrate Oliver Koehn denied Ms Nilsson bail based on the “apparent strength of the prosecution’s case”. The trial will continue in June.
