Two brothers who spent 25 years in prison for a killing they insist they didn’t commit walked out of a Detroit courthouse as free men on Thursday.

Circuit Judge Lawrence Talon formally dismissed the murder charges against Raymond and Thomas Highers a day after Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy announced she didn’t plan to retry the men for the 1987 slaying of 65-year-old Robert Karey.

The brothers and the dozen or so family and friends in attendance abided by a request from defense lawyer Valerie Newman not to “hoot and holler” in the courtroom.

“There’ll be lots and lots of time to celebrate,” she told them.

Celebrate they did, once they poured out of the building.

Thomas Highers, 48, walked down the courthouse steps and gave his uncle a bear hug while cheers rang out.

Costa Concordia Salvage Operation Completed In Italy (VIDEO/PHOTOS)

The crippled Costa Concordia cruise ship was pulled completely upright early Tuesday during a complicated, 19-hour operation to wrench it from its side where it capsized last year off Tuscany, with officials declaring it a “perfect” end to a daring and unprecedented engineering feat.

Shortly after 4 a.m., a foghorn wailed on Giglio Island and the head of Italy’s Civil Protection agency, Franco Gabrielli, announced that the ship had reached vertical and that the operation to rotate it – known in nautical terms as parbuckling – was complete.

“We completed the parbuckling operation a few minutes ago the way we thought it would happen and the way we hoped it would happen,” said Franco Porcellacchia, project manager for the Concordia’s owner, Costa Crociere SpA.

“A perfect operation, I must say,” with no environmental spill detected so far, he said.

Applause rang out among firefighters in the tent where the project engineers made the announcement. An hour later, Nick Sloane, the South African chief salvage master, received a hero’s welcome as he came ashore from the barge that had served as the floating command control room for the operation.

John Esposito Dead: Katie Beers’ Kidnapper Found ‘Not Breathing’ In Prison Cell

A man convicted of imprisoning a 10-year-old girl for 17 days in a suburban New York dungeon was found dead in his cell, and she expressed sympathy for his family but not for him.

John Esposito was found unresponsive at a prison in Ossining, N.Y., on Wednesday, said spokeswoman Linda Foglia. The death is under investigation but does not appear to be suspicious, she said.

Esposito, 64, was serving 15 years to life for kidnapping Katie Beers and hiding her under his Bay Shore, Long Island, home in 1992.

Beers is now a married mother of two who earned a degree in business management and works in insurance sales near her home in rural Pennsylvania. She also has been making public appearances in recent months to speak about her ordeal.

She told The Associated Press in a telephone interview that state parole officials called her on Wednesday with the news of his passing. “They wanted me to hear it from them and not in the media, and that is something I definitely appreciated,” Beers said.

Jim Fallon’s TED Talk Explores The Brains Of Psychopathic Killers (VIDEO)

Maj. Nidal Hasan was sentenced to death for killing 13 people and injuring more than 30 in a 2009 attack at Fort Hood, Texas. In the almost four years since that event, 16 more mass shootings have occurred in the United States, with fatalities ranging from four to 28, according to data compiled by Mother Jones.

Each such event inevitably begets the question: What motivates killers? What can turn a person to such an act of violence? A 2009 TED talk by neuroscientist Jim Fallon may hold one of the keys to the enduring mystery of human violence.

Fallon explains that after examining the brains of around 70 psychopathic killers, certain common traits became evident — every single brain showed signs of damage. Fallon was even able to pinpoint a specific area where murderers had experienced trauma: the orbital cortex. Furthermore, he found that the age at which the damage occurred was also a sign of whether someone would become a killer or not.

WATCH: How a Colorblind Cyborg ‘Hears’ Color

Since 2004, an antenna sticks out of my head that allows me to hear the color spectrum, from near infrared to near ultraviolet. My head has turned into a music box. I can hear the sky, I can listen to my mother’s eyes and I can hear rainbows.
I don’t feel that I’m using technology, I don’t feel that I’m wearing technology, I feel that I am technology. I don’t perceive my antenna as a device, I perceive it as a part of my body, I perceive it as an organ.
I feel cyborg.

Diego Durrell usually counts his smoothie routine as one of the healthiest parts of his day – but now he believes it almost
killed him. “I basically was staring death in the face with this illness. It was not fun. It was very, very scary,” he said. Durrell is one of 118 people in eight states who, according to the Centers for Disease Control , contracted acute Hepatitis A after eating a frozen berry blend sold at Costco.

Elizabeth Bergaren’s Scribble Led Cops To Husband Nuzzio Begaran: Prosecutors

A note scrawled by a prison guard minutes before her death was the clue that led to her killer, Orange County prosecutors said at the trial of her husband, who is charged with arranging the killing.

Elizabeth Begaren scribbled down the license plate number of a car that followed her onto an Anaheim freeway on-ramp in 1998, jurors were told Wednesday during opening statements in Superior Court.

Her husband, Nuzzio Begaren, was driving the family sport utility vehicle. He pulled over and a gang member got out of the other car and shot her, prosecutors contended.

Police found a torn-up piece of paper in the dirt by the side of the freeway and reassembled it. On it, Elizabeth Begaren had scribbled the words “light blue” and the plate number, prosecutor Larry Yellin said.

That led investigators to a Buick Regal driven by gang member Guillermo Espinoza, authorities said.

Dementia Prevention – What Can Be Done?

Almost everybody knows somebody that has developed dementia.  The progressive loss of cognition and function can have devastating effects on the individual and their family and loved ones.  Furthermore, patients with dementia can develop personality and behavior changes that can significantly strain the function and stability of their personal relationships.

Currently there are no known ways to prevent dementia.  Our inability to prevent dementia is partially due to an incomplete understanding of what causes many of the most common forms of dementia, such as Alzheimers disease.

In the absence of clear treatment strategies to prevent dementia, a plausible next option is to try to treat or prevent risk factors known to cause it.
