Plea deal nets 20 years for Peoria man in deadly botched robbery

PEORIA — A Peoria man was sentenced Friday to 20 years in prison for his part in a 2012 murder that resulted from a botched robbery.

Robert C. Nunn, Jr. now 23, pleaded guilty in Peoria County Circuit Court to second-degree murder as part of a deal that saw a first-degree murder charge dropped, said his attorney William Loeffel.

The plea came after an appellate court panel last summer threw out Nunn’s conviction for the murder of Kelin “Noopy” Drummond in May 2012. Nunn had originally received a life sentence. But the appellate judges found a judge here improperly barred a Facebook conversation at the December 2012 trial. The case was sent back to Peoria County last summer.

No one disputed Nunn killed Drummond. At issue was whether Nunn shot in self-defense or as the result of a

Israeli minister insists deadly incident was terrorism amid reports of apology

Israeli Public Security Minister Gilad Erdan on Sunday reiterated his conviction that a controversial incident in which a Bedouin man and an Israeli police officer died was a terror attack, denying reports that he intended to make a public apology, Israel Radio reports.

Yakub Abu al-Qiyan, a resident of the village Umm-Al Hiran, was shot at from behind the wheel of his truck, after police claimed he was attempting a car-ramming attack during the January evacuation of the village. His vehicle struck and killed 34-year-old policeman Erez Levy.

Disputes sparked between police and witnesses as to whether al-Qiyan had intended to strike the officer in a car-ramming attack or lost control of the vehicle after being hit with gunfire.

Erdan initially announced that the incident was a clear car-ramming attack and that al-Qiyan had been shot in self-defense.

Erdan said on Sunday that police had investigated the incident and definitively found that it was

Witnesses testify about deadly NAU shooting

FLAGSTAFF, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) –

Witnesses to a deadly shooting on the campus of Northern Arizona University in October 2015 took the stand Friday in the murder trial of Steven Jones, 20.

Jones is charged with first-degree murder for allegedly killing fellow student Colin Brough. He’s also charged with three counts of aggravated assault for allegedly shooting and injuring three of Brough’s Delta Chi fraternity brothers, Nicholas Piring, Nicholas Prato and Kyle Zientek.

Prosecutors say Jones’ actions were premeditated when he retrieved his gun from his vehicle and shot the four students.

Jones’ attorney says his client was punched, bullied and scared, and shot in self-defense.

Many of those who testified Friday saw at least part of what happened from their dorm room windows.

Several of them were alerted when they heard two groups of guys having an intense argument outside Mountain View
