Dude jumps in front of car, tries to fondle woman, then strips and flees

A 20-year-old man was booked into the Boulder County Jail after police said he jumped in front of a woman's car, reached into her window to try to grab her breast, tossed her cell phone across the pavement and then began strangling her.

According to Boulder police, a woman was driving near an intersection when she saw two men walking down the middle of the road. One of the men ran in front of her car, forcing her to stop, police said. She rolled down her window and asked him, "Did you want to get killed?" according to police.

That's when he reached in the window and tried to grab her chest, officers said. When she threatened to call authorities, police said he pitched the phone onto the pavement, leaned back into the window and began strangling the woman, whose name hasn't been released.

The woman began screaming for help, honking her horn and turning on her emergency flashers, police said. That prompted Disselhorst to let go of her throat, pull her out of her car and toss her onto the ground behind the vehicle, according to police. A driver in another car and several passers-by saw the incident as it was happening and stopped.

Disselhorst then stripped off all his clothes and ran away, along with the other man who was with him, police said.

Man admits to killing his wife and says he doesn't know why

It took all of seven words for Matthew Gretz to seal his own fate. "I stabbed and intentionally killed my wife," Gretz, the husband of Minneapolis art student Kira Simonian, told Hennepin County District Judge Robert Blaeser on Monday.

The 33-year-old Minneapolis man originally had cast himself as the grieving husband who was as much a victim, a role he played to the hilt during a candlelight vigil after his wife's death. Then, the evidence mounted. Two months later, he was charged with murder.

Gretz, 33, pleaded guilty to second-degree intentional murder for stabbing Simonson about 15 times in the chest and neck and smashing her head with a hammer last June 28. According to the charges, Gretz chased Simonian around their south Minneapolis apartment during the bizarre and bloody attack, screaming, "Do you love me?"

Couple "divorced without their knowledge"

A happily married couple in northern India got the shock of their lives when they learnt they had divorced 10 years ago.

Meena Verma, a mother of two children, tried to file a case against her in-laws for violence, only to be told by a court in Haryana state that she had been divorced for a decade.

Her husband Virender, his brother, a lawyer, had apparently forged the divorce a decade earlier, when the couple were contemplating making a similar complaint. "It seems the divorce was doctored to defeat Meena's possible complaint," he said.
