1. Woman disguised herself as a man to kill sister with crockpot.
A woman wore a fake beard and wig to disguise herself as a man before beating her half-sister to death with a casserole dish in the UK.
Yvonne Caylor wore a ginger wig, fake goatee, hi-vis jacket and glasses when she murdered Nicola Collingbourne, 26.
CCTV footage shows Caylor wearing the crude disguise as walks to her sister’s front door before the murder, The Sun reports.
The 53-year-old slashed Collingbourne’s wrists to make it look like a suicide before fleeing.
A jury took seven hours to find her guilty of murder at Luton Crown Court in the UK after hearing these details as well as the alleged motivation for the crime.
Jurors heard how Caylor, from Hitchin, Herts, had stolen several items from flat she used to share with Collingbourne before she was evicted in October 2015.
She was later arrested on suspicion of burglary and is alleged to have tried to get Collingbourne to drop the charges.
Caylor, who insisted it wasn’t her in the disguise, will be sentenced at a later date.
2. Car bomb attack on Australian Christian Lobby overnight.
Members of the Australian Christian Lobby group are “shocked” after a van carrying gas bottles was driven into their headquarters in Canberra last night and set alight, causing an explosion.
No staff were injured in the explosion according to the lobby’s managing director Lyle Shelton, who last night tweeted a photograph of the incident.
“A vehicle has rammed our office in Canberra & exploded all staff are safe,” he wrote.
“I do not know the condition of the driver. Prayers appreciated.”
A man is believed to have driven the white van towards the Eternity House building about 10.45pm, The Daily Telegraph reports.
The explosion destroyed the vehicle and blew out some of the windows of the office building.
Australian Capital Territory Police are investigating and confirmed no one was injured when a vehicle was driven towards the front of the building.
No arrests have been made but it is believed the alleged driver of the van is receiving medical attention.
In a later tweet, Mr Shelton said he was “shocked that this could happen in Australia”.
“We have had the normal trolls on social media and even had death threats sent to our Canberra office over the year but I am very concerned someone would do this,” he told The Daily Telegraph.
