Dwanya Hickerson, 21, "lost it" after learning Dee Whigham, 25, had been born a man. Mississippi's Jacksonville Circuit Court heard that he knifed Ms Whigham multiple times in the face and slashed her throat in a hotel room before showering and leaving her for dead. The hospital nurse picked him up at the gates of Keesler Air Force Base, where he was training to be a weather forecaster, and drove them to her hotel, the court heard.
Angry parents have pledged to withdraw their sons from Boy Scouts amid an outcry over Donald Trump's highly politicised speech to tens of thousands of youngsters. The US President broke with tradition to attack his political foes, threaten to fire federal employees, and denounce the media in a rambling address at the 2017 National Scout Jamboree. Previous presidents to have addressed the Jamboree, held every four years, have typically steered clear of politics and instead saluted Scout values such as trustworthiness, loyalty, and bravery.
The INSIDER Summary: We tried fried chicken from Popeyes, Church's, Chick-fil-A, and KFC to see which makes it the best. KFC was the clear loser - its chicken was dry, and its batter was bland. Chick-fil-A came in third place because while we loved the batter's flavor and seasoning, the chicken didn't taste as authentic because the chain doesn't offer meat on the bone. Church's came in second place. The meat was juicy and tender, but its batter wasn't as flavorful as Popeyes, which came in first place.

The slip dress may be the biggest dress revival to come out of the ’90s (for good reason, as it’s incredibly versatile and super-easy to wear), but another style from the earlier part of the decade is having a moment: button-front dresses. You know what we’re talking about. You probably wore one in a family photo or teamed one with combat boots during your grunge phase. It was likely a floral print, and you may or may not cringe at the sight of it now. Same. But new versions of the dress are flooding the market, making us see the once-outdated style with fresh, enthusiastic eyes. Cut in a range of silhouettes that include flippy minis and maxi lengths to precious sleeves and simple tank straps, the only really nostalgic part of this look is the button detailing. Go ahead and throw it on with a fuss-free sandal and cute straw bag and you’ll be ready to roll (just don’t pair it with Dr. Martens and a straw hat à la Blossom). Here, shop our edit of current styles for every budget. Homepage Photo: Getty Images
Cellphone video of a confrontation at a border patrol checkpoint is stirring up new controversy in the immigration debate. A California teacher posted a video of border patrol agents detaining her after she refused to say if she was a U.S. citizen at a checkpoint in New Mexico, about 35 miles from the border.
