Murder defendant on witness stand

Dwayne White, the Deltona man on trial, charged with slashing the neck of his estranged wife and leaving her body outside a Miami Subs shop, today told jurors that he discovered her bloody body then left without calling authorities.

White, 44, told jurors, “I panicked.”

White is charged with first-degree murder. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty.

The case is likely to go to the jury this afternoon.

Sarah Rucker, 42, a hospital surgery technician who lived in Deltona, was killed Aug. 29, 2011. Her body was found before dawn at the sub shop at Interstate 4 and State Road 434.

White this morning told jurors that, yes, the two had gotten into an argument about 2 a.m. in her front yard. She was “fussing and cussing” at him for not providing money to help their oldest child get ready for college, White said.

On Tuesday, jurors listened to a recording of that fight, something captured by a Volusia County Sheriff’s Office dispatcher after Rucker called 911 while the confrontation was still underway.

Today, White said he did not strick Rucker, hit her head, pushed her down or throw a beer bottle at her, things she told the dispatcher she had suffered.

He left after stripping a cell phone from her hand, White said.

Rucker soon called him on another phone, White said, angry and demanding that he return her phone.

She told him to meet her at the Miami Subs, he said, so he pulled in.

When he arrived, he said, he found her bloody body near the building, knelt down and called her name.

“Did you see a lot of blood?” asked Assistant Public Defender Tim Caudill.

“I did,” White said.

“Did you cut your wife’s throat that morning, sir,” Caudill asked.

“No, I did not,” White said.

He did not call police, he said, because he panicked.

When questioned by Volusia County authorities later that day, he told them that after he left the family home, he went to the Orlando home where he was staying.

He did not tell them that he had been at the Miami Subs, White said, because, “I knew I’d be suspect. No. 1.”

Family Named “Krueger” Displays Appropriately Creepy Halloween Decor, Neighbors Aren’t Feeling It

Kreuger-halloween-decorations.jpg

One house in the New Jersey community of Bellmawr is causing outrage amidst neighbors for the owners’ choice of Halloween decorations, which include baby dolls hanging from rope nooses.

The “dangling dolls” are part of a larger holiday display outside the home of the Krueger family. (No, seriously, that’s their last name.)

And while some people in the hood are calling the display “disgusting” and “horrible,” even the family’s young children understand the creepy ornaments are all in good fun.

Naturally, Halloween is the Krueger family’s favorite holiday (how could it not be?) and they are very proud of their display.

“It’s hilarious and funny and scary all in one,” said 10-year-old Lily Krueger.

“I just love Halloween because it’s just so much fun to get scared and let yourself go,” said 8-year-old Greg.

“This is what scary is today,” dad Chris Krueger told reporters. “I don’t think people realize that. This is what the kids are into — The Conjuring, Annabelle.”

Despite local opposition demanding the dolls be taken down, the family says their undead babies aren’t going anywhere. Bwah ha ha ha!

Freddy Krueger would be so proud.

Tell us what you think: Is the Krueger’s Halloween display too scary?
