Question of the Day
El Campo Police Chief Terry Stanphill says a body thought to be that of 28-year-old Brandy Cerny was found Tuesday in a building on a neighbor’s property. He declined to release additional details.
Police arrested Ms. Cerny’s boyfriend, 36-year-old Demond Bluntson, earlier Tuesday in Laredo, where they say he shot Ms. Cerny’s two young sons in a hotel room. A 21-month-old boy was killed and a 6-year-old boy was on life-support Tuesday evening.
Abuse victim faces trial in beating of priest
LOS ANGELES — More than 35 years after William Lynch says he and his little brother were molested by a priest during a camping trip, he will get his longtime wish to face the aging Jesuit in court for the first time. But it is Mr. Lynch who is going on trial.
Mr. Lynch, now 44, faces felony charges after prosecutors say he beat then 65-year-old Rev. Jerold Lindner at a retirement home in 2010. Since then, Mr. Lynch has refused to discuss a plea deal, intent instead on using his trial to try Father Lindner in the court of public opinion.
The judge overseeing the case, which opens Wednesday, ruled that if the priest denies the initial allegation, Mr. Lynch’s attorney can call up to three other witnesses who claim they also were molested by Father Lindner.
The Lynch brothers, who were 7 and 4 at the time, were raped and forced to have oral sex with each other while Father Lindner watched, according to a civil lawsuit. Father Lindner has been accused of abuse by nearly a dozen people but was never criminally charged because the allegations were too old.
