Jury convicts teen of killing girl pregnant with his twins


HOUSTON - A jury convicted a teenage boy Thursday night of killing a Pearland girl who was pregnant with his twins.

Ryan Matthews was convicted on two counts of capital murder in the death of Arrijana Hill.

Hill was found dead March 21, 2014, inside her home in the 3200 block of East Cedar Hollow Drive. Her family arrived home to find the house in disarray, and Hill in a pool of blood.

During closing arguments prosecutors read several text messages between Matthews and Hill. Matthews sent one which reads: "Can I just punch you in the stomach please lol." Prosecutors say it's proof that he did not want the babies. They also pointed out how he did a Google search of the word "abortion" prior to Hill's death.  More

Office manager at dental practice operated on patients behind real dentist’s back


New York – Valbona Yzeiraj, 45, was arrested Thursday on accusations of masquerading as a dentist at a Bronx dental office and charged in a 13-count indictment with pulling teeth and even performing root canals.

The paper-pusher who dubbed herself “Dr. Val” is not a licensed dentist in the state, or anywhere else in the nation. But that didn’t stop her from treating patients for cash.

“She inspected patients, she diagnosed patients, she took X-rays, she injected patients with anesthetics, she even gave patients root canals,” Bronx Assistant District Attorney Patrick McCadden said at Yzeiraj’s arraignment Thursday afternoon.

Some of her work came with a bite, leaving one patient with an infection from a botched root canal, and another suffering persistent pain two years after treatment, McCadden said. More
