Irene Trujeque has been through it. Last August, her ex-boyfriend, Nelson Escobar-Carralero, cracked her skull with a pipe, then kicked her, breaking some ribs. Then doused her with two bottles of rubbing alcohol, lit on fire and left for dead. Shockingly (or not so surprisingly ) Irene took Nelson (pictured, here) back because she "fell in love with [the] bastard" until she beat her ass again last night and neighbors called police. Nelson, who hasn't been charged with assault or attempted murder -- instead he's being held on probation violations and possession of cocaine. What? For Irene's sake, we hope all this crying she's doing in this interview means she's series about kicking this low-life to the curb, but only time will tell.
35-year-old Juventino Gonzalez of Los Angeles man is facing a slew of charges (including kidnapping) for forced his estranged wife into his car and then pushed her out of the moving vehicle on a freeway Tuesday night. Juventino then jumped out of the still moving vehicle. Both suffered minor injuries and were treated at a local hospital.
Meanwhile, in Columbia, Tennessee, Eric Whitaker, 40, was tying to kill his girlfriend by running her over with a pickup truck after an argument -- and it was all caught on tape. While chasing his terrified girlfriend, Eric crashed his truck headlong through the front doors of a convenience store. After he crashed the truck into the store and his girlfriend again fled, Eric stole an SUV left running outside the store by another customer and crashed that head-on into a bread truck. Craziness. BTW: The girlfriend was unharmed, but the store owner was hit hard by the truck but walked away with only minor injuries.
This afternoon in Cleveland, 21-year-old Melissa Workman was sentenced to life in prison after her two-month-old baby was found emaciated and near death. (Melissa's boyfriend, Ricky Bruner, Sr., 33, was sentenced to 40 years in prison.)
Last weekend, 21-year-olds Justin and Brittany Alston were throwing a party at their home in Dallas while their emaciated 8-month-old baby was dying. A 17-year-old attending the "gathering" found the child and called for help. Justin and Brittany were arrested and charged with injury to a child and abandoning or endangering a child. The 8-month-old is still hospitalized in critical condition and their two other kids -- an 18-month-old and a 4-year-old child -- were taken away and placed into foster care. What they gon do now when the government assistant checks stop coming? Hmmmm.
...Then again, attending college doesn't mean you have an ounce of sense. The Sigma Phi Epsilon all male fraternity at the University of Vermont has been disowned and shuttered by its national association because of a very rapey questionnaire it issued to members. The last questions read: "If I could rape someone, who would it be?" Women's group are calling for the fraternity's head, but we think they got it wrong. We think the survey was asking the brothers which member of the frat would they get rapey with, because you know fraternities are legendary. Either way, rape is wrong.
This is pretty slick. You should watch it.

The GOP is gonna have a field day with what John DeStefano, the mayor of New Haven, Connecticut is proposing. He says undocumented residents should be allowed to votes in municipal elections.
