The mother of a black teenager shot and killed by a white police officer outside Pittsburgh says she went home and "collapsed" after the officer’s acquittal in her son’s death.

Michelle Kenney, mother of 17-year-old Antwon Rose II, joined friends and supporters at a vigil Sunday afternoon at the Hawkins Village housing complex in Rankin.

She said "I haven’t slept in I don’t know how long … And after the verdict was read, I literally went home and I collapsed."

Kenney said she was glad to see her son’s life being celebrated at the spot where he spent so much time. She said anyone looking for Antwon would "find him on the basketball court."

Several dozen people brought red roses, white flowers and candles, and purple ribbons, and they read a poem by Rose, sang and prayed.

Investigators say a Houston police officer has been charged with murder in the fatal shooting of his librarian wife.

Pearland police said in a statement that the body of 52-year-old Belinda Hernandez was located Saturday by a relative at her home in the Houston suburb. Her husband, 56-year-old Sgt. Hilario Hernandez, was arrested later that day some 230 miles (370 kilometers) away in Kingsville, Texas.

Police say the victim was a librarian at Shadycrest Elementary School.

Pearland police Officer Jason Wells said Sunday that Hernandez is being returned to Brazoria County from Kleberg County, where he was arrested. Wells was unable to provide information on bond or an attorney representing Hernandez.

Kleberg County sheriff’s officials didn’t immediately return messages Sunday. Houston police also didn’t immediately return a message for comment.

A man who pleaded guilty to the 1988 beating death of a pregnant mother in South Bend, Indiana, has died in jail.

The St. Joseph County prosecutor’s office says 78-year-old George Kearney was found unresponsive Saturday night in the county jail’s medical unit. He was pronounced dead early Sunday.

Authorities say Kearney had been terminally ill and signed an order with jail medical staff to take no lifesaving measures if he stopped breathing.

His guilty plea in the slaying of 28-year-old Miriam Rice came earlier this month. Kearney was in prison for an unrelated crime when he confessed and said his co-defendant, 56-year-old Barbara Brewster, was also responsible. Both were charged last year.

Kearney faced up to 60 years in prison at his sentencing Friday. An autopsy is expected Monday.

The man facing an assault charge in connection to an attack on a homeless woman on a New York City subway train claims she threatened him with a knife.

The New York Post reports the court-appointed attorney for Marc Gomez made the claims at the 36-year-old’s arraignment early Sunday in Bronx Criminal Court.

Gomez, of Yonkers, New York, had been arrested Saturday in connection to the March 10 encounter, which was caught on video.

The clip showed the 78-year-old woman being punched and kicked on a Bronx train around 3 a.m. She was treated for cuts, bleeding and swelling.

Attorney Steven Mechanic says his client insists she threatened to stab him, and displayed some kind of sharp instrument.

Gomez was ordered to be held.

A dog is being lauded as a hero by his family for giving his life to save them during a shooting near Houston, Texas.

The labrador, named Zero, jumped to action when a gunman opened fire during a birthday party at the home of Laura Martinez last Sunday night. Martinez and her two children were shot as Zero attacked the shooter. The dog was hit by a bullet during the altercation and later died.

"I honestly believe if Zero had not kept jumping on him, he would’ve been able to get shots higher than our legs," Martinez said, according to Click 2 Houston.

The family is recovering from their gunshot wounds, but mourning the death of their beloved dog, who they’ve dubbed "Zero the Hero."

The Sacramento Metropolitan Fire Department said on Twitter the incident happened at the Unocal 76 gas station on Watt Avenue in Sacramento on Saturday morning.

Surveillance images released by fire officials show the man entering the store wearing sunglasses before returning to the pump outside.

Brown told FOX40 the gas station was nearly full at the time and he knew customers were in danger.

Metro Fire Capt. Chris Vestal said his crews are now working to find the man before he puts anyone else at risk.

“We don’t know what the danger is because we don’t know who he is, we don’t know his motive, and we don’t know what his intentions were,” Vestal told FOX40. “We really need help in identifying him and locating him to make sure there’s no danger to the community and to make sure this doesn’t happen again.”

A Missouri employee at an Enterprise Rent-A-Car said he spiked three co-workers’ drinks with LSD because they were giving off “negative energy,” police said.

Police began investigating the unidentified 19-year-old man this week after officers were called to the rental car location in Arnold, Mo., about two people feeling dizzy and shaky for an unexplained reason, KMOV reported.

The workers were taken to urgent care before being transferred to the hospital.

Police officers then questioned the 19-year-old, who admitted he put the hallucinogenic drug in two co-workers’ water bottles and a third employee’s coffee that day because they had “negative energy.”

The employees were okay after the drug’s effects wore off. The 19-year-old could face charges of second-degree assault and possession of a controlled substance when lab tests are completed, according to police.

Anna Delvey, the infamous "scammer socialite" who posed as a wealthy heiress to infiltrate the upper echelon of New York City’s social scene, is facing deportation after her trial concludes.

The German citizen, whose real name is Anna Sorokin, is currently facing ten counts of larceny after allegedly swindling hundreds of thousands of dollars from banks, hotels and wealthy friends over the course of several years. Delvey, 28, reportedly entered the United States under the Visa Waiver Program in June 2017, but stayed far past the legal timeframe of 90 days.

Rachael Yong Yow, a representative for US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), said that the department requested that Delvey be handed over to them after her trial, regardless of whether or not she is found guilty.

"ICE is requesting that we be notified prior to her release from local custody so she can be taken into ICE custody," Yow told INSIDER. "Regardless of whether or not she is convicted, she is amenable for removal because she is a visa waiver overstay. If she is convicted, she is sentenced to serve her time in the US."

Delvey’s story found viral fame after an article exposing her years-long con was published in New York magazine last year. After successfully convincing the entirety of New York’s social scene that she came from a long line of foreign family money, she secured loans using bad checks worth hundreds of thousands of dollars in an attempt to get funding for a business she planned to launch. She subsequently scammed months worth of free stays in some of the city’s most luxurious hotels, private jets to meetings with Warren Buffett and Bill Gates, and vacations on yachts in Ibiza before her crimes were revealed.

Now, even after being arrested, Delvey owed more than $250,000 in unpaid legal fees she allegedly owes to the firm representing her.

U.S. law designates any fraud-related offenses "in which the loss to the victim(s) is more than $10,000 as a "deportable offense." According to the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, she stole approximately $275,000.

Shonda Rhimes, who has been involved in the production of shows like "Grey’s Anatomy," "Scandal," and "How to Get Away with Murder," is in the process of creating a Netflix series about Delvey’s life.
