Taraba State Police said that they arrested 18-year-old Ashai Abdullahi after being accused of killing her three-month-old son, Ibrahim Ubale, by feeding him a poisonous liquid she bought for N200 ($1.20).

During questioning, Abdullahi admitted to killing her son. She told police that she killed her baby because he had been labeled a "bastard child" by her relatives and neighbors.

"People said I had a bastard child, and the father of the child, Safiyanu Ubale, denied being the father. Even my own mother complained that she was tired of taking care of me and my bastard son," Abdullahi said.

A DNA test showed that Safiyanu Ubale was not the father of the child.

Charges are still pending.

Bill Standley, 87, of Mechanicsburg, Ohio, spent many years traveling across the United States, on his 1967 Electra Glide.

Standley left behind three children, two sons and a daughter.

His daughter, Dorothy Brown, said that the idea for her father being buried with his beloved bike, came about 18 years ago when they were discussing what to do with this bike when he died.

Described as a kind of colorful personality, Standley was determined to take the bike with him when he departed.

"What am I supposed to do? I have two children, but only one bike,” he said.

His daughter suggested: "oh dad, just be buried with it."

Standley liked the idea, and went with it.

With the help of his two sons Pete and Roy, they created a 9 feet by 11 feet plexiglass box.

6 years ago, Standley purchased three plots in the cemetery next to his wife Lorna, so there's enough space for him and his Harley-Davidson.

Last year, Standley was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, and he died of lung cancer on Sunday.

He was buried while sitting on his bike as planned.

He has been accused of ordering four younger officers to gorge on high-calorie foods, including fifteen burgers, fifteen donuts or four large cups of fried instant noodles, in one sitting. They were also forced to drink about 4 liters of coffee flavored milk.

The force feeding began when the sergeant suspected that his officers were not working as efficiently as he liked.

“I wanted to toughen them up,” the sergeant told investigators.

The officers were also forced to buy the food with their own money.

The officers were force fed on 10 occasions between early 2010 and late last year.
