The Latest Headlines You Need To Know

  • Three members of a Texas family were sentenced to prison last week in the brutal 2013 beating and stomping of a 13-year-old relative who authorities said was raped -- and impregnated -- by her own brother.  Sharon Jones, 47, of Dallas, and two of her children, Cedric Jones Jr., 29, and Cecila McDonald, 28, pleaded guilty for their part in the 2013 crime, which caused the girl to miscarry, The Dallas Morning News reported. The newspaper reported in 2016 that the victim and five siblings, including a younger sister forced to help hold her down during the beating, moved from California to Texas to live with Sharon Jones, their aunt, after their grandmother died.  “Most people would treat strangers better,” prosecutor Rachel Burris said during last week’s sentencing hearing, according to the newspaper. “Yet these people did it to someone they promised to love. “They held her down. They forced her to lay there while people stomped her. It was savage.” >> Read more trending news A judge sentenced Sharon Jones to 12 years in prison. Cedric Jones was sentenced to five years in prison and his sister was sentenced to serve seven years, according to the Morning News. The siblings and their mother each pleaded guilty to felony family violence aggravated assault.  A fourth suspect, Lonnell McDonald, was convicted in 2016 of aggravated assault and sentenced to 10 years in prison, the newspaper reported.  The beating, which the now-19-year-old victim reported in 2015, stemmed from a sexual assault case in which the girl’s 24-year-old brother was accused of raping her in 2012, when she was 13. The brother, who relocated to Dallas a year before his siblings, was ordered to not have contact with them, though it was not immediately clear why. The brother’s name is being withheld to help shield the victim’s identity. Testimony in Lonnell McDonald’s trial showed that, despite Sharon Jones promising to take in the siblings to keep them out of foster homes, the children were instead sent to live with Lonnell and Cecila McDonald. Their older brother was living at the McDonald home at the time, the Morning News reported.  It was there that the alleged sexual assault took place, according to testimony. Sharon Jones is accused of telling the girl and her siblings to lie to Texas Child Protective Services caseworkers so authorities would not find out they were living in the same home as their brother. The 13-year-old victim told authorities that she told Jones and Cecila McDonald about the sexual assault after it came out that their older brother had sexually abused McDonald’s own three young children. The women, who were reportedly worried that McDonald would lose custody of her children, never told authorities about the girl’s allegations.  The brother has since been found mentally incompetent to stand trial and his criminal charges remain in limbo, the Morning News said. When the teen’s relatives learned that she was eight months pregnant, they tried forcing Plan B birth control pills and cinnamon tablets on her to induce a miscarriage, the Morning News reported. When that didn’t work, they held her down and took turns stomping on her abdomen. Cecila McDonald screamed during the attack, “(Expletive), you ain’t about to get my kids taken away from me,” the newspaper said.  After beating her for hours, they left the girl in a bathtub, bleeding and drifting in and out of consciousness, as she gave birth to a stillborn baby, the Morning News reported. To combat her loss of blood, they fed her iron pills. The victim told authorities they took her baby away before she got to see the child. The girl’s younger sister tried to care for her afterward. The Morning News reported in 2016 that the younger girl, who was 12 during the attack, was granted immunity in the case in return for her testimony.  After the baby was born, Cecila McDonald put the infant’s body in a bucket. She, her brother and her mother then tried to burn the remains on a grill. Sharon Jones subsequently paid her son $25 to get rid of the portion that did not burn. The Morning News said he hid the remains, which have never been found.  “To this day, we don’t know what happened to that baby,” Burris told jurors during Lonnell McDonald’s trial. 
  • More than a year after it introduced the concept, Amazon opened its artificial intelligence-powered Amazon Go store in Seattle Monday. The store on the bottom floor of Amazon’s headquarters billed itself as grocery shopping for the future. It has no registers and no cashiers. >> Read more trending news  Shoppers have to download the Amazon Go app to scan to get in the door. Once they are inside, the store tracks what they buy through cameras and shelf sensors. Anything a shopper takes off the shelf is automatically added to their virtual cart, and anything put back is taken out of the cart. Once shopping in finished, you just walk out the door. You will get a receipt in your app about five minutes later. The system works by combining computer vision and machine-learning algorithms and sensors. The Associated Press reported there are people there making food, stocking shelves and helping customers. The store offers ready-to-eat breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks, as well as some grocery staples like bread, milk, cheese and chocolates. It'll also have Amazon Meal Kits. KIRO spoke to some of the shoppers who were among the first to experience the store and they seemed to like what they saw.“It will make it a lot quicker. The biggest reason you don’t want to go to the store is waiting in line so it’s pretty great,' Betty Paschke, who lives in Seattle, said. Tech expert Todd Bishop with Geekwire said the success of the store is yet to be seen and depends on how much the public is willing to let the business track their spending and accounts virtually. “It basically treats people walking around a physical space exactly like people are tracked online currently,” Bishop saud. Amazon Go had been open only to Amazon employees since December 2016 to test out the technology. Acording to Amazon, there are no plans to open up more stores like the Seattle location.
  • Authorities arrested a 16-year-old on Monday morning after authorities said he shot a 15-year-old girl at a Texas high school, according to the Ellis County Sheriff's Office. >> Read more trending news
  • Five workers were missing Monday after a natural gas well exploded and caught fire in Oklahoma, sending out a smoke plume that could be seen for miles. >> Read more trending news Pittsburg County emergency managers and the county sheriff confirmed around 9 a.m. local time that an explosion and fire took place at a well in Quinton. Air Care McAlester officials confirmed that at least one person was injured in the fire. The person, whose condition was not immediately known, was taken by helicopter to a Tulsa hospital. Officials said 17 other employees were able to safely leave the area. The well is a natural gas and oil well.  Emergency officials said Monday they were letting the fire burn itself out and were fighting any flames that went beyond a perimeter they established.  Officials said the public was safe from contaminates and that there was no need for evacuations.  The well is owned by oil drilling company Patterson-UTI Energy Inc., employees confirmed. In a statement, company officials said they were unaware of what caused the fire. “We have received reports that some of our employees and others are unaccounted for at this time,” the statement said. “Our top priority is the safety of our employees and any others who may be affected. We've activated our emergency response systems and are fully cooperating with first responders and authorities on the scene. We will provide more details as they are known.” FOX23 storm chasers in the area spotted the smoke plume from the fire miles away. Workers on the rig were evacuated and sent to the Quinton Community Center for a head count.  Grief counselors and religious leaders were offering support to families and workers on Monday. The American Red Cross was also working to help first responders as they worked to contain the fire. Fire crews were also searching woods for anyone that may have run from the scene.
  • Governor Rick Scott told leaders from the Venezuelan community here of his efforts to block all state agencies from investing in companies that do business with the Venezuelan government, led by socialist President Nicolas Maduro. Last year, Governor Scott and the State Board of Administration passed a resolution to ban state investments that would benefit Maduro’s oppressive government. Mob violence and looting are growing as people hunger for food, according to news reports from Venezuela.
