after Murphy:

    BURLEY, Idaho (AP) — A south-central Idaho man has been charged with first-degree murder following the shooting death of his wife in 2014. Authorities said 32-year-old Jimmy Lee Murphy was taken into custody Wednesday. Murphy took out a $650,000 life insurance policy on his wife just weeks before she was killed in what police say was a staged robbery. The insurance company refused to pay the $650,000 claim. Whitney Murphy, who was 26, died at the couple’s home in Cassia County. Jimmy Lee Murphy at the time of his arrest, police said, was outfitting a van to live in and was preparing to leave the area. Court records say that three years after Whitney Murphy's death, a relative confronted Jimmy Lee Murphy at a local store and accused him of the killing. Records say Murphy said, “Maybe I did, maybe I didn't.” Murphy is next scheduled to appear in court...

    Louie Anderson has expressed surprise that Eddie Murphy was 'forced' to cast him in the 1988 hit comedy Coming to America because studio execs wanted to include a 'white person'.  Murphy made the claim during an appearance on NBC's Today last Wednesday, stating: 'The whole cast was black, and the studio was like 'We have to have someone white in this movie or we're not going to make it'... So that's how Louie wound up in the film.' Anderson - who played fast food worker Maurice in the blockbuster comedy - appears to have spent the past 33 years unaware that he was a token inclusion, and took to Twitter to share his shock.  'Wait, what?' he wrote in a Twitter post shared last Wednesday above a clip of Murphy making the claim.  DailyMail.com have reached out to Anderson's representatives for further comment.    The revelation could be particularly awkward given...
    Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall are looking back on filming "Coming to America." Ahead of the release of the famed comedy's sequel "Coming 2 America," the duo appeared on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" and revealed that Paramount had a demand when it came to the movie's casting. Hall, 65, revealed that the studio made them cast a White actor to play the character of Maurice -- who was played by Louie Anderson. "I love Louie, but I think we were forced to put Louie in it," recalled the actor. "We were forced to put [in] a White person." 'COMING 2 AMERICA' FIRST LOOK INCLUDES EDDIE MURPHY AS KING AKEEM Similarly, Murphy remembered Paramount was opposed to the 1988 movie having an all-Black cast.

    TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A recreational marijuana marketplace, cannabis decriminalization and looser penalties for underage possession of the drug and alcohol became law Monday in New Jersey, more than three months after voters overwhelmingly approved a ballot question to legalize adult use of the drug. Acknowledging that the legislation took much longer to be enacted than expected, Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy cast aside critics’ attacks the legislation was about filling the state’s coffers with tax revenue or easing penalties on underage possession to the point of making policing difficult. “The reason I signed these bills, the reason why we’ve been in this fight is for social justice,” he said Monday during a news conference. He alluded to decades-old stringent policing of marijuana laws frequently called the War on Drugs that resulted in Black residents facing disproportionate consequences. “At long last, we’ve broken through and as of...

    TRENTON, N.J. (CBS) — New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy has a warning for people who have vaccination appointments coming up. Many of them will have to be rescheduled. Weather is causing vaccine shipments to the Garden State to be delayed. “Because planes in major hubs for both FedEx and UPS have been grounded due to the weather, this week’s delivery has not made it to us on time,” Murphy said. “We are working with all of our vaccinators for them to use existing inventory to satisfy their current appointments. However, we are keenly aware that not all sites have the inventory on hand to be able to do this and this will result in many appointments needing to be rescheduled.” The governor also said he has directed sites to ramp up operations and extend hours, so they can administer doses quickly once they arrive.

    OAKLAND, Calif.

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A local man furloughed from his job back in March is finding a way to make ends meet while helping out the community. Brian Annapolen worked at the Omni William Penn Hotel in downtown Pittsburgh as the food and beverage director before he was furloughed amid the coronavirus pandemic. The single father of three needed a job so he decided to combine his love of cooking with giving back. (Photo Credit: KDKA) That’s when the Pittsburgh Soup Club was born. Annapolen spent part of his Thanksgiving day making some home-cooked deliveries. One of those stops was his friend’s house in Ross Township. “I haven’t had this one yet.

    CNN host Chris Cuomo chose not to mention threats made against U.S. General Services Administration chief Emily Murphy on Monday as he continued to criticize her days after urging viewers to give her “more attention.” Murphy informed President-elect Joe Biden that her agency has formally ascertained him as the apparent winner of the 2020 presidential election and would move ahead with transition proceedings. Her letter effectively ended a weekslong standoff in which the Biden transition team accused Murphy and her agency of withholding critical transition resources needed for a smooth transfer of power.

Murphy released a letter to Biden announcing the move - that dedicated a considerable portion to defending her own reputation and claiming she had been threatened.  It came just over an hour after Michigan certified that Biden had won the state, putting another nail in the coffin of Trump's bid to overturn the election result.

She lived up to her words in style.  Lauren Murphy vs Liliya Shakirova was the second fight on the main card at UFC 254. It was an interesting matchup between two highly touted flyweight contenders.

    Another school district in the Hudson Valley has been forced to transition to its remote learning contingency plan after a student tested positive for COVID-19 and forced a staffing shortage. Pearl River High School Superintendent Michael Murphy announced that they were notified that a student tested positive for the virus this week, forcing the school to make adjustments to avoid spreading COVID-19. According to Murphy, the high school administration worked with the Rockland County Department of Health to determine who may have been exposed, and those students and staffers will be quarantined for 14 days as a precaution. There have now been two confirmed COVID-19 cases at the high school and one at the Evans Park School in Pearl River. Murphy said that due to the number of students and staff members required to quarantine, the high school will be forced to transition to its remote model beginning on Tuesday,...
    Gov. Phil Murphy has gotten very good at closing things down, and now the Garden State’s anti-gun and anti-hunting Governor is planning to put the kibosh on the state’s annual black bear hunting season.  He announced earlier this week that this would be the last year for the New Jersey bear hunt.  There’s only one problem.  He doesn’t have the authority to do that.  The bear hunting season and regulations are set by the New Jersey Fish and Game Council under statutory authority.

    Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie confirmed that he had contracted COVID-19 a week after appearing at a White House event that many people are calling a “superspreader”. Now, the 58-year-old Republican is still in the hospital and has been silent on social media, prompting questions about his condition. According to NJ.com, after checking himself into the Morristown Medical Center, Christie’s condition is largely unclear, though one source claimed that he is not on a ventilator, despite rumors to the contrary, and remains in good spirits. The last public statement came from Christie on Saturday when he tweeted that he was checking into the hospital as a precautionary measure, as The Inquisitr previously reported. Christie’s stay in the hospital is longer than most. The average stay for a person hospitalized with the disease is five days. Current New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy weighed in on the situation, saying that he...

At a press conference on October 8, Hancock introduced Desmond Fulton, a longtime member of the DFD who had been serving as deputy chief, as the person who will lead that department going forward.
