Second Oregon death row inmate wants execution
Jason Van Brumwell killed another inmate while serving a life sentence in Eugene’s notorious ‘Dari-Mart murder’
By Register-Guard and news service reports Jan. 10, 2013
PORTLAND — A second Oregon death row inmate is challenging the state to carry out its death penalty.
Jason Van Brumwell, originally jailed in a brutal Eugene murder, agrees with fellow inmate Gary Haugen that pursuing appeals is pointless and he should be executed. He has yet to formally ask the Oregon Supreme Court to order that the sentence be carried out.
The 38-year-old Brumwell was sent to death row in 2007 with Haugen after the two were convicted of a prison killing in September 2003. At the time, Brumwell was serving a life sentence for aggravated murder in the 1994 slaying of a convenience store clerk in Eugene.
Brumwell was 18 when he and three other teenagers plotted a late-night murder and robbery at a Dari-Mart store in west Eugene that prosecutors described as a satanic thrill killing. Testimony in the trial indicated that the young men, heavily involved in drugs and death metal music, planned to carve satanic symbols into the bodies of their victims or use blood to paint symbols on the store walls to frighten the community.
One of the teens beat to death store clerk Fran Wall, and Brumwell nearly beat to death a second clerk, Donna Ream, who survived despite losing half her blood. The crime went unsolved for five months before a Eugene detective tracked the killers through fake signatures on lottery tickets stolen from the market….

The police in Lagos State, yesterday, said they have arrested an 18-year-old boy, Ikechukwu Friday, who allegedly killed a 12-year-old girl for money ritual.
The suspect, who is currently being interrogated at the State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Panti, Yaba, was paraded before newsmen.
According to him, a pastor he asked for money instructed him to kill a young girl and obtain her faeces.
He said the pastor promised him N100,000 if he was able to accomplish the task….
“I pressed her neck tightly and she passed out faeces. I was, however, not able to get the faeces because I was caught before I could escape.”

Nigeria: The Education Ritual Killers Need
15 August 2013
The news of the recent arrest of an ostensibly struggling Nigerian herdsman who beheaded his 5-year-old son for money-making ritual purposes has broken many hearts. The bizarre incident happened because the obviously mad man thought it was the fastest means to get his business back on track. He is not alone: The media are filled with one ritual-related cold-blooded murder of Nigerians, especially children, hunchbacks, albinos and young women for the purpose of harvesting their body parts that the criminals consider efficacious for money-making or election-winning rituals…. http://allafrica.com/stories/201308150161.html

Commonwealth v. Daniel Vital, Appeals Court of Massachusetts, Plymouth
No. 12 P 845.
Nature of the case:
Indecent assault and battery on a child and violation of an abuse prevention order.
Facts and Issues on Appeal:
Defendant, a friend of the victim’s grandparents, molested the victim in her home while staying there. The defendant subsequently went to his pastor, who knew the defendant, the victim, and the victim’s family. The defendant asked the pastor to tell the victim’s family that he was sorry and did not intend to hurt anyone. He claimed that he was not taking his medication and blamed the abuse on his confusion with pornographic material on television. The defendant also requested that the pastor try to convince the family to resolve the sexual abuse issue through the church and not take it to court. After multiple requests, the pastor eventually relayed the defendant’s messages to the family, who had already reported the crime to the police and obtained an abuse prevention order for the whole family against the defendant. At trial, the pastor testified about his communications with the defendant, to which the defendant did not object. The defendant was convicted.
On appeal, the defendant argued that the pastor violated his priest-penitent privilege by testifying in court about his confessions and communications requesting that the priest communicate with the family on his behalf. The court disagreed….
Privileges must be strictly construed and the priest-penitent privilege only applies to communications where the penitent seeks religious or spiritual counseling. The privilege does not apply when a penitent requests that his conversations be shared with a third party. Thus, because the defendant on multiple occasions requested that the pastor disclose their communications to the victim and her family, the privilege did not apply…. http://www.nesl.edu/centers/clsr_svln_online.cfm?SVID=763
