Mayhem Round-up

The FLUBA Committee on Man's Inhumanity to Man notes:

BOISE, Idaho -- A member of a punk clique surrendered Wednesday for scalping another member, apparently as punishment for her disrespectful behavior toward women, police said.
The victim, a 16-year-old girl whose hair was cut in a mohawk, survived.

Marianne Dahle, 26, accused of tying up the teenager and cutting away a 6-by-8-inch section of her scalp. She allegedly used a 4-inch knife to cut away the crown and back portion of the scalp.


SAN FRANCISCO -- A man who spent less than seven years in jail for setting his son on fire two decades ago could be locked up for the rest of his life for illegally possessing a handgun.

Charley Charles, known as Charles Rothenberg when he burned his 6-year-old son in 1983, was found guilty Tuesday of the handgun charge, a conviction that could send him to prison for life under California's tough three-strikes sentencing law.

....Charles, 64, said he needed the gun as protection from vigilantes bent on retaliation for the crime against the boy, who grew up severely disfigured.


INDIANAPOLIS -- Investigators found human remains in a basement under fresh concrete after a brother and sister told them they had killed their mother and grandparents, authorities said Wednesday.

Investigators worked into early Wednesday digging up concrete in the grandparents' small, wood-frame home on the city's east side, and a forensic anthropologist was brought in to help gather evidence.

Kenneth Allen Jr., 29, and his sister, Kari Allen, 18, had been pulled over for speeding Tuesday in Missouri. In the car, officers discovered bloody clothes and bedding, as well as jewelry, cash, credit cards and the driver's licenses of two older people in Indiana, St. Charles County, Mo., Sheriff's Lt. Craig McGuire said.

The FLUBA COMIM counts its blessings.
