murder charges

by

A man is due to be sentenced this morning after he was found guilty of the murder of ex-girlfriend, Soina Blount.

In February 2014, two months after their relationship had ended, Eric Locke lured Sonia to a Dublin hotel using a fake Facebook profile. 

Locke then strangled the mother-of-one to death.

He was found guilty just four days ago after it took the jury less than one hour to reach their unanimous verdict.

During his trail, Locke admitted that he lad lured Sonia to the hotel in Tallaght under false pretences, but denied her murder.

According to his psychiatrist, Locke was suffering from a pervasive development disorder at the time, but the claim was later dismissed after the prosecution expert found no evidence to back it up.

The jury also saw saw footage of him as he fled the scene, dropping his mobile phone in a drain outside the hotel.

Sonia's family will be given the opportunity to deliver a victim impact statement before Eric Locke begins his mandatory life sentence.

While a lot of us may be too young to remember the most highly-publicised court case in American history, we now have a second chance to see the whole thing.

And just in case that doesn’t entice you, it’s going to be full of Kardashians too!

The first pictures of the actors playing the young Kardashian clan on set of American Crime Story have been released, and they look SERIOUSLY similar to our favourite family twenty years ago.

It is no secret that the Kardashian name first came to prominence in the early 1990s during the murder trial of former sports star and actor, OJ Simpson.

In this new series from Glee creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, David Schwimmer (yes, that’s Ross Gellar) is playing Robert Kardashian – Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Rob’s Dad.

Selma Blair is playing Kris Jenner in the show. The Cruel Intentions star actually bumped into the momager on a red carpet two months ago, and their uncanny similarities were seen in person for the first time.

Meanwhile Oscar-winning actor, Cuba Gooding Jr, is set to play the role of Mr Simpson himself and John Travolta appears as Robert Shapiro, another of Mr Simpson's defence attorneys. 

With the world’s attention permanently fixated on the lives of the Kardashians, we have no doubt that this show, which is set for a 2016 release, will garner a HUGE audience.
