CW vs. Henry Stacy. Defendant Stacy knew the victim from his mother being the victim’s house keeper. The victim, 74 years of age and disabled was home alone while his wife was at the store.  The defendant broke into the victim’s home and assaulted him with a big glass container and then proceeded to stab him multiple times.  The victim died due to these injuries.  The defendant then cleaned up the knife and then proceeded to rummage through the house and take jewelry, coins and a gun leaving his DNA around the house in the process.  While leaving a few neighbors saw the defendant leave the house with a big bag full of items and due to his distinct vehicle was easy to identify.  A composite sketch was done and the defendant’s own mother said that it looked like her son and she hadn’t seen him in a few days and knew he was hard up for money.  The defendant was arrested in Manchester, KY where he had been staying with some friends and there they located some of the jewelry that had been stolen.  The defendant was charged with Murder, Robbery 1stDegree, Tampering with physical evidence and PFO 1st Degree and was sentenced in court on February 20th 2015 to Life without parole.

Princess Half Marathon in Disney World
By: Intern Leah Wolf

On February 22, 2015 at 8:30 am, most people were still sleeping in. However, I was crossing the finish line after completing my second Princess Half Marathon in Disney World. A half marathon is 13.1 miles, so it’s no easy feat on your feet, but it was all for a good cause. All proceeds from the half marathon went to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital to help find cures for children with cancer.

 If you ever feel the need to run an absurd amount of miles at once, I highly recommend challenging yourself to a run Disney race–mostly because you get to wear fun costumes and take pictures with characters along the way. This year, I dressed as Rapunzel from Tangled while my cousin Shelby and best friend Taylor both chose to wear Anna-inspired tutus from the movie Frozen.

 No matter what gets you motivated to work out, I love that these races promote a healthy lifestyle and opportunities for the whole family to be involved. I’m already planning my next race with Disney and hoping to improve my 2:29 finish time. In the meantime, I’m trading my running shoes and tutu for my best intern attire to continue to represent the Crime Fighters at the Commonwealth Attorney Office.
