A judge on Monday rejected a convicted man's request for a new trial in the 2018 killing of University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts, after defense attorneys tried to link her death to a sex trafficking ring. Judge Joel Yates' ruling cleared the way for sentencing to proceed on August 30 in the trial of Cristhian Bahena Rivera, 27, who was convicted in May of first-degree murder in Tibbetts' death.   He reportedly stabbed Tibbetts to death in Powesheik County, Iowa, in July 2018. She vanished while out for a jog in her hometown of Brooklyn, Iowa.  He was convicted after surveillance photo captured his Chevy pass by Tibbetts during her final jog.  Bahena Rivera was further implicated in the killing after the student's blood was found in his car - and he later agreed to lead cops to Tibbetts' body in a corn field, around a month after she vanished.   The former farmhand, who came to the U.S. illegally as a teenager, now faces a sentence of life in prison. He was ori

A champion gooseberry grower claims he lost his title after his prized bushes were poisoned and killed by a suspected rival ahead of a prestigious competition.  Terry Price, 76, believes his crops were sprayed with a mystery chemical formula which caused many of his plants to die within a matter of days.  The former butcher and postman has won the competition, held in the aptly named village of Goostrey, in Cheshire, a record 11 times, and has been competing since the 1960s.  Last year the grandad-of-six claimed victory with a 50g beast of a berry - however following this year's 'sabotage', he had to settle for seventh after his best offering weighed a paltry 28g.  Terry says he noticed his bushes looking 'sickly' three months ago and that within just ten days they were dead. Since then he has sent some of the plants for laboratory testing and discovered they were sprayed with a damaging chemical formula not available to buy over the counter. Good memberries: Terry

Pro-Trump social media network GETTR is being flooded by terrorist propaganda from Islamic State jihadist just weeks after its launch. Ex- Trump adviser Jason Miller led the platform's launch July 4, as those in the former president's circle have looked for alternatives to Twitter and Facebook after Trump was banned.  But GETTR's promise of unrestricted speech has drawn jihadi material that includes videos of beheadings and gruesome viral memes promoting violence against Western nations. One even depicted a militant 'executing' Trump in an orange jumpsuit similar to those worn at Guantanamo Bay, according to a review of online activity shared with Politico.  ISIS members have predicted GETTR will be successful and moved in to exploit its free speech promises (file image) 'Is Daesh here?' one account whose profile photo was the flag of the Islamic State.
