A 22-year-old man will be facing an Athens prosecutor on Tuesday after allegedly confessing to killing a 41-year-old homeless woman in the coastal suburb of Glyfada on April 20 as a “sacrifice to Satan.”

According to an official police announcement published on Tuesday, the 22-year-old was arrested on Monday afternoon and later admitted to investigators that he had been planning to make another “sacrifice” on June 21.

The 41-year-old woman was found beaten to death in the early hours of Easter Sunday at Vaso Katraki Square in Glyfada on the southern coast of Athens. On a nearby bench, the number “666,” believed to indicate the devil, as well as a cross and another identified symbol were written in the woman’s blood.

A man has been arrested for reportedly using samurai swords to fatally stab his parents in what the DeKalb County Police Chief describes as a “horrific” crime.

The attacks happened at a home on the 3000 block of Pheasant Drive, report WSB TV. According to police, the suspect is the couple’s 39-year-old son, Calvin Ray Jr.

“It’s a pretty horrific scene inside,” DeKalb police Chief Cedric Alexander told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Investigators said the victims were 73 and 75 years old.

A family member who stopped by to visit the married couple found the victims dead in their bedroom around 4 p.m. Thursday. The two may have been dead for several hours, Alexander said.

We’ll see how many of these killings actually materialize, but may the Lord bless any victims in this case…

SUNBURY, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman charged along with her newlywed husband in the murder of a man they met through Craigslist admitted to the slaying in a jailhouse interview with a newspaper and said she has killed more than 20 others across the country, claims police said they are investigating.

In an interview with the Daily Item in Sunbury, Pa., 19-year-old Miranda Barbour said she wants to plead guilty to killing Troy LeFerrara in November. She also said in the interview that she has killed at least 22 other people from Alaska to North Carolina in the last six years as part of her involvement in a satanic cult.

“I feel it is time to get all of this out. I don’t care if people believe me. I just want to get it out,” Barbour told the newspaper for a story published Saturday night (http://bit.ly/1gN81z3).

Sunbury police Chief Steve Mazzeo told the newspaper that investigators have been in contact with the FBI and law enforcement in several other states.

Authorities said Miranda Barbour, a petite woman with long brown hair, told investigators she met the 6-foot-2, 278-pound victim after he responded to her Craigslist ad offering companionship for money.

Police allege in court papers that Elytte Barbour told investigators they committed the crime because they wanted to kill someone together. The couple, who were married in North Carolina and moved to Pennsylvania about three weeks before the crime, told police Miranda Barbour stabbed LaFerrara in the front seat of her car while her husband held a cord around his neck.

She said in the interview that she doesn’t want to get out of jail and that she would kill again if she were released.

Barbour and her husband, 22-year-old Elytte Barbour, murdered 42-year-old Troy LaFerrera in November. Miranda Barbour said they lured the victim to them by offering sex for $100. She allegedly stabbed the victim 20 times as her husband strapped a cord around the victim’s neck.

“He said the wrong things…and then things got out of control,” she said. “I can tell you he was not supposed to be stabbed. My husband was just supposed to strangle him.”

The other killings Barbour claims she committed were in Alaska, Texas, North Carolina and California.

“I can pinpoint on a map where you can find them… When I hit 22, I stopped counting,” she said.

Barbour reportedly said she would lure her victims in and then study them. She would even become their friend in some cases. She said she only killed “bad people,” and that the majority of the killings were in Alaska—where she said she joined a satanic cult at the age of 13.

(CNN) — A second Maryland woman has been charged with murder in connection  with the Friday stabbing deaths of two children during an exorcism attempt,  authorities said.

Two children died of multiple stab wounds and two others are hospitalized  with undisclosed injuries, police said.

Monifa Denise Sanford, 21, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder  and two counts of attempted first-degree murder, Montgomery County Police  said.

Earlier, authorities announced that the children’s mother, Zakieya L. Avery,  28, also faces the same charges. Police said Saturday that Avery stabbed two of  her children to death and wounded two others while attempting an exorcism.

Sanford was briefly hospitalized after the incident and was charged after she  was released. Police believe she is not related to the family, but lived at the  same residence in Germantown.

Norell Harris, 1, and his sister, Zyana Harris, 2, suffered fatal stab wounds  while their siblings, who are 5 and 8, were hospitalized, authorities said.

“Cases like this are heartbreaking,” county Police Chief Tom Manger said.  “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the victims.”

Police said they found the four children Friday morning after a neighbor  called 911 to report suspicious activity at the home. The neighbor reported  seeing a car with a door open and a knife next to it.

(CNN) — A 71-year-old ex-Florida cop stared silently into a closed-circuit camera Tuesday, listening to his defense attorney and a judge go back and forth on whether he should be charged with second-degree murder. Curtis Reeves told Pasco County authorities that he fired his .380 semi-automatic handgun in a movie theater Monday afternoon at a man with whom he’d been arguing because Reeves was upset that the man was texting on his cellphone as previews ran.

The victim, Chad Oulson, 43, was killed and his wife was wounded.

The shooting happened Monday afternoon at the Grove 16 theater in the Tampa suburb of Wesley Chapel just before an afternoon showing of “Lone Survivor,” a film about a Navy SEAL mission.

Reeves was with his wife and sat behind Oulson and his wife, authorities said. Chad Oulson was using his cell phone and Reeves told him to put it away, according to police and witnesses.

The two men began to argue and Reeves walked out of the theater. Police said Reeves was going to complain to a theater employee, according to the police report.

When Reeves returned, witnesses and authorities said that Oulson asked him if he had gone to tell on him for texting. Oulson reportedly said, in effect: I was just sending a message to my young daughter.

Charles Cummings and his adult son were two seats away. Cummings said that when Reeves returned to the theater, there was no manager with him.

“He came back very irritated,” Cummings recalled.

Voices were raised. Oulson threw a bag of popcorn at Reeves, according to a police report. Then, the former police officer took out a .380 semi-automatic handgun and shot Oulson.

A despondent young couple, under pressure to break off their romance, instead chose suicide in front of a speeding LIRR train — leaving behind a multipage note that said they were going to a better place, sources told The Post yesterday.

“Two great people” are going to “paradise,” they wrote in a blue stenographer’s pad that was found on the Hollis, Queens, platform after their death leap Monday night.

“Everything will be good,” the note said.

Davon Smallwood, 25, and Ariana O’Neal, 21 — whose mother disapproved of their relationship — lived in Queens Village with their 2-year-old daughter.

In addition to the note, the tragic couple also left behind a black garbage bag stuffed with clothing, a bottle of Gorgi vodka and a can of Coca-Cola.

The young lovers had no IDs, and cops had to run their fingerprints to get their names. Most of their suicide note was in “illegible gibberish,” the sources said.

O’Neal recently ran away because her mother demanded she no longer bring Smallwood to the house, police sources said.

The mom was upset over his recent trouble with the law.“Her mom didn’t want the boyfriend living with all of them,” her landlord, Kinsley Senior, said last night. “She didn’t like him.”

Dmitriy Kanarikov, 35, who was in the midst of a child custody battle with his estranged wife, allegedly threw his toddler and then himself to their deaths in Manhattan, plummeting 52 floors from the roof of a West Side skyscraper.

A distraught dad threw himself and his 3-year-old son off the roof of a 52-story West Side skyscraper Sunday in a holiday death plunge that apparently stemmed from a custody battle, police said.

The 35-year-old man, Dmitriy Kanarikov, died after jumping from the Lincoln Square tower at 12:05 p.m. The red-haired tot, Kirill, dressed in Christmas pajamas, died moments later at St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital, cops said.
