WARREN, MI – A 37-year-old Michigan man has been charged with the murder of a 6-year-old boy, the boy’s father, and the boy’s father’s girlfriend.

Nicholas Raad Bahri of Bloomfield Hills is accused of the “execution-style killing” of 6-year-old Tai’raz Moore and 28-year-old Isis Rimson at a home on Otis Street in Warren on Oct. 1.

Detroit police also found the body of 32-year-old Tukoyo Moore, Tai’raz’s father, in a torched car around the same time. Bahri is also charged with his murder.

When asked about motive for the murders on Tuesday, Warren Police Commissioner Bill Dwyer simply said “It was all about drugs and money. I’ll leave it at that” but noted that the suspect and victims did know each other.

Macomb County Judge john M. Chmura found probable cause for all 15 counts against Bahri, who has an extensive criminal history, in 37th District Court in Warren on Tuesday.

Bahri is charged with three counts of first-degree homicide, three counts of felony murder, six counts of using a firearm to commit a felony, third degree arson, possessing a firearm as a felon and mutilation of a dead body. Bond was denied and the court will appoint an attorney for Bahri, per his request.

“I don’t know what more a person can do to show they’re a danger to society,” Warren Police Det. Jim Twardesky said at the arraignment.

Bahri was identified as a person of interest last week. Dwyer said the teamwork between his department and the Detroit Police Department was a big reason the suspect was identified, arrested and charged so quickly.

Dwyer has called on federal involvement in prosecuting the case, calling for the death penalty.

“Only monsters, or godless creatures would pull the trigger and execute a 6-year-old child,” Dwyer said on Oct. 9. “When

Uganda’s police are searching for hackers who accessed the systems of a third party that processes phone-based transactions, with companies affected including MTN Group and Standard Bank Group’s local units.

The fraudsters got into the mobile-money systems and stole funds, according to Charles Twine, spokesman for the Criminal Investigation Department. Investigations will help identify how the systems were hacked, the people involved and the amount of money stolen, he said.

The “system incident” at the third party “impacted bank-to-mobile money transactions,” MTN Uganda, Stanbic Bank Uganda and Airtel Africa’s local unit said in a joint statement.

Mobile money, as it’s known, is popular in Africa for making payments for everything from groceries to utility bills, with options to borrow, save and invest using almost any type of cellphone. The system has become indispensable that governments also uses it for services, and breaches would have far-reaching impact.

In Kenya, the value of such transactions in the seven months through July increased 4% year-on-year to 2.6 trillion Kenyan shillings ($24 billion).

Some services were suspended as a precaution, and mobile-money users’ account balances weren’t affected, MTN said in a separate statement.

The Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce holds an event with the recording of the WFMZ tv show Business Matters with Tony Iannelli, who is holding the first debate between 7th Congressional District candidates Susan Wild, and Lisa Scheller, center, at Saucon Valley Country Club. During a recording break.

Scheller was on the offensive from the get-go, criticizing Wild for usually voting with Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, whom Scheller believes is trying to “take us down a road to socialism.” In contrast, Scheller portrayed herself as a business leader who cut taxes and worked across the aisle during her four years serving as a Lehigh County commissioner.

Wild, who in 2018 became the first woman to represent the Lehigh Valley in Congress, pointed out that she was among 14 House Democrats to reject the party’s follow-up coronavirus package, saying it wasn’t specific enough and didn’t do enough to help PA-7 voters. She also noted that 78 Republicans voted for her proposal blocking regulatory changes that would cause health insurance premiums to rise, and that she is working with Republicans on improvements to the paycheck protection program.

“I am by no means a socialist,” Wild said during a one-hour taping of WFMZ-TV 69 1/4 u2032s ‘Business Matters.’ “… I know who I am, and more importantly I believe my constituents know who I am.”

The debate was moderated by Tony Iannelli, president and CEO of the Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce. It will be broadcast in two parts at 7:30 p.m. Monday night and Oct. 12. It was

The Louisville police officer who fatally shot Breonna Taylor is currently raising money to fund his retirement.

a man wearing a suit and tie: Louisville Det. Myles Cosgrove is raising funds for his retirement on an online crowdfunding site.

Louisville Det. Myles Cosgrove is raising funds for his retirement on an online crowdfunding site.

Detective Myles Cosgrove was one of three Louisville officers who fired shots into Taylor’s apartment last March after breaking in to serve a search warrant related to Taylor’s ex-boyfriend.

Taylor, an emergency room technician, died from multiple gunshot wounds sustained in the botched raid.

Now, Cosgrove is seeking funds on the “Christian crowdfunding site” GiveSendGo so he can “purchase the remainder of his service time” and retire, according to the fundraiser’s description. He wants to focus on his family’s safety, which, per the description, has been threatened since protests erupted after Taylor’s killing.

“Myles’ reputation has been completely dismantled and the psychological trauma is something that he will have to cope with for the rest of his life,” the fundraiser description reads.

Jarrod Beck, an attorney for Cosgrove, confirmed to CNN that the page was set up by members of Cosgrove’s family but declined to comment further. CNN also reached out to GiveSendGo to comment on the campaign and is waiting to hear back.

The detective is currently seeking $75,000 and, as of Wednesday morning, has raised over $9,000.

The Louisville Courier Journal was the first to report about the fundraiser.

Cosgrove and Officer Jonathan Mattingly were two of the three officers present the night of March 13 when Taylor was killed.

Neither were indicted for their actions that night, though Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said Cosgrove fired the fatal shot — which he said was justified because Taylor’s boyfriend fired at officers first.

A third officer, Brett Hankison, has been indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment in the first degree for firing
