Girlfriend stabs boyfriend with knife during sex

A woman has been arrested on suspicion that she tied up a man during sex, then stabbed him repeatedly with a knife and told him she likes to drink blood, police said.

Tiffany Sutton, 23, was arrested on suspicion of aggravated assault Tuesday night at a Tempe home where she and the victim were living, according to authorities.

The man, whose identity was not released, told police he had consented to being tied up but became scared when the woman attacked him with a knife.
He eventually freed himself and ran away, but Sutton chased him with a pickax, police said.

The man was taken in an ambulance to a local hospital, where he was treated for injuries. Police said both Sutton and the man admitted that they had consumed alcohol and drugs prior to the incident. Sutton claimed the entire encounter was consensual, police said. Article here.

Dude grabs shark with bare hands, blames vodka

A man who caught a 4-foot shark with his bare hands off an Australian beach said on Friday he only tried the feat because he was drunk on vodka.

Phillip Kerkhof was fishing off a jetty at Louth Bay, a town on South Australia state's Eyre Peninsula 870 miles west of Sydney, when he spotted the bronze whaler shark swimming in the shallows, the Australian Broadcasting Corp. reported.

"I just snuck up behind him, and eventually I went for the big grab and I fluked it and got him," Kerkhof said. "He was just thrashing around in the water ... starting to turn around and try to bite me and I thought 'well, it's amazing what vodka does'," Kerkhof said.

The shark bit a hole in Kerkhof's jeans, but he was uninjured. "It's not something I'd recommend to do. When I sobered up I thought about it and I said, 'I'm a bit of an idiot for doing it'," Kerkhof said. Article here.

Girl hasn't stopped hiccupping in three weeks

She has tried holding her breath. Drinking water from the far side of the glass. Putting sugar under her tongue. Sipping pickle juice. Breathing into a paper bag. But none of those home remedies has helped 15-year-old Jennifer Mee, who started hiccupping three weeks ago and hasn’t stopped.

Something like 50 times a minute, she hiccups, a staccato sensation that resembles a smoke alarm with a dying battery. Her mother, Rachel Robidoux , thinks Jennifer sounds like a barking chihuahua.

It was kind of funny at first, but now it’s become much more than an annoyance. “It’s actually really stressful,’’ Jennifer said. “Really, there’s nothing much I can do except stay home.”

Strangers approach them at Wal-Mart, trying to scare the hiccups away. They offer prayer and healing hands and folk remedies. All unsuccessful. “She just wants to be a normal teenager again,” Robidoux said. Article here.

Millionaire acquitted of stabbing wife 24 times

Ben Odierno, the millionaire landlord who fatally stabbed his wife at least 24 times as they argued over divorce in the couple's Upper East Side townhouse, was acquitted of her murder Tuesday.

A Manhattan jury deliberated only four hours before reaching the surprise verdict, which brought Odierno, 73, to tears of joy.

Jurors said afterward most panelists voted not guilty because they couldn't be sure if Odierno stabbed and slashed Christine, his wife of nearly three decades, in cold blood or self-defense.

"We'll never know what happened inside that kitchen," said juror Mark Flowers. Odierno's younger wife suffered some 40 injuries in the couple's November 2005 struggle-to-the-death as they argued in their East 84th Street townhouse over their impending divorce and the distribution of the family's $10 million in property.

The injuries included at least two dozen stabs and slices — many of them to the hands and forearms, seemingly indicating she was in a defensive position.

Odierno — behind bars for the last 21 months — said it didn't much matter. "I feel like I'm back again," he said, beaming exultantly as he left the courtroom on the arm of his sister, Margot. "From heaven, to hell and back."

Last night, an ebullient Odierno dined on lamb chops and celebrated with family and friends at Lusardi's on the Upper East Side, tossing out a toast-like greeting to his former jailmates: "I'm all for the boys in the Tombs!" Article here.
