WOODLAND, Calif. (AP) — A California father about to be freed from prison has been taken into custody in connection with the decades-old killings of five of his infant children in a case a sheriff said has haunted his agency for years.
Paul Perez, 57, a convicted sex offender with a 20-year criminal history, was charged in the deaths of the children born between 1992 and 2001, authorities announced Monday, the same day he was supposed to be released from a state prison in Delano on unrelated charges.
Yolo County Sheriff Tom Lopez said the case reflects an “unspeakable evil,” though a motive has not been determined.
“I cannot think of a case more disturbing than this one,” he said. “There can be no victim more vulnerable and innocent than an infant and unfortunately this case involves five of them.”
A Prince George’s County police officer shot and killed a suspect who was handcuffed and wearing a seat belt inside a police cruiser Monday night in Temple Hills, Maryland, a spokesperson for the police department says.

Officers found the suspected driver on Winston Street and immediately smelled what they believed to be PCP coming from the car,
They handcuffed the driver and put him inside the front passenger seat of the cruiser and put the seat belt on him,
One officer got into the driver’s seat of the cruiser while the officers waited on a drug recognition expert to come to the scene,
Two witnesses told police they heard a struggle coming from the cruiser and heard loud bangs,

BAGHDAD: Three rockets slammed into the US embassy in Iraq’s capital on Sunday in the first direct hit reported after months of close calls, as thousands kept up anti-government sit-ins across the country.
The attack marked a dangerous escalation in the spree of rocket attacks in recent months that have targeted the embassy or Iraqi military bases where American troops are deployed.
None of the attacks has been claimed but Washington has repeatedly blamed Iran-backed military factions in Iraq.
On Sunday, one rocket hit an embassy cafeteria at dinner time while two others landed nearby, a security source told AFP.

TWITTER users have been left in stitches after commuters spotted a Prince Harry lookalike in an advert.
The advert shows a ginger-bearded model, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the Duke of Sussex, screwing a bolt on a wall and it appeared on the Tube across London.
It comes after Prince Harry, 35, and his wife Meghan Markle, 38, stepped back as working royals and split their time between Canada and the UK.
