SENSELESS DEATH, BUT IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO …
Matthew Notebaert has been sentenced to 5 years in prison for the death of his wife in a fatal DUI car crash. But there is more. The incident took place in 2014 where according to arrest reports, Notebaert was drunk and high on marijuana when he slammed the couple’s 2006 Chevrolet Equinox into a canal embankment just after midnight March 9,2014 at the end of East Stallion Drive one block north of the couple’s Loxahatchee home. A toxicology report showed Notebaert’s blood alcohol was at .149 three hours after the crash, nearly twice the level at which Florida drivers are presumed impaired. But wait, there is even more. Rescue workers who arrived at the scene found both Notebaert and his wife, who was riding in his lap, naked from the waist down. Hmm.
Talk about your bad decisions that will echo forever …
Calling it one of “the most senseless, tragic acts” she’s ever come across, a Palm Beach County judge sentenced a 33-year-old Loxahatchee husband and father to five years in prison Wednesday for a 2014 wreck that killed his wife as they had sex while he drove drunk.
The sentence for Matthew Notebaert came just over three years after the death of his wife, Amanda, in a crash that left their two children without a mother and caused a deep rift between the couple’s families that even on Wednesday had her closest friends and relatives split into two camps.
Some, like Amanda Notebaert’s parents and grandmother, said her husband was to blame not just for the crash but for “taking bad advice” in the aftermath and alienating the couple’s two children from the loved ones of the woman he called his best friend.
Others, like the 31-year-old’s aunt and her closest friends, said the couple was madly in love until the moment Amanda Notebaert died, and she wouldn’t have wanted him to go to jail.

Many individuals have been treated at the scene in what authorities are calling an intentional act. According to one witness, “Everyone was running … and as I was running, I saw a car up on the sidewalk coming toward us.

Police closed the Strip is both directions from Flamingo Road to Harmon Avenue.
The female suspect is describes as an African-American woman in her 20′s with a 3 year old child in the back seat. Police have supposedly ruled out terrorism, how about a hate crime?

At least one person is dead and seven are in critical condition, fire officials said. Medics tended to 37 people.

Caitlyn Jenner Might Face Manslaughter Charges in Deadly Pacific Coast Highway Crash in the Death of Kim Howe
is Her reality show is doing badly and it looks like he she might be in a whole new word of hurt …
Could Bruce Jenner, sorry, Caityln be facing manslaughter charges? According to the LA Times, the Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives will present evidence next week to prosecutors that could land Caitlyn Jenner in hot water and lead to a misdemeanor manslaughter charges in connection with the February 7, 2015 chain-reaction motor vehicle crash that caused the death of 69 year old Kim Howe dead. It has been determined in the investigation of the crash that Jenner was not driving above the speed limit, but driving at an unsafe speed for the road conditions that day. If found guilty, Jenner could face a year in jail.
What are the odds that because of his/her celebrity that Bruce Kardashian, I mean Bruce Jenner, I mean Caitlyn Jenner serves a day for hie/her speechless actions and killing someone?
Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives will present evidence next week to prosecutors that could lead to a misdemeanor manslaughter charge against Caitlyn Jenner in a deadly chain-reaction crash earlier this year on Pacific Coast Highway.
Jenner was driving at an unsafe speed Feb. 7 when her Escalade hit Kim Howe’s car, ultimately leading to the deadly crash, said Det. Richard Curry of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Jenner was not driving above the speed limit, but driving at an unsafe speed for the road conditions that day, he added.
The evidence will be presented to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office next week. Prosecutors will review the case and decide whether to formally charge Jenner. Typically, a single misdemeanor manslaughter charge could carry a sentence of a year in jail.
So how will the court papers read, Bruce or Caitlyn? When the car crash took place, he was Bruce Jenner, now at the time of a possible indictment, she is Caitlyn.
This is also where I call out ESPN again for their BS and giving Caityn an award in courage this past year, after having killed a woman. Way to go ESPN for attaching yourselves the the circus, the the soap opera and reality show, Jerry Springer insanity that is the live of Bruce, sorry Caitlyn. Just curious, if convicted and ordered to serve time, does he/she going to a men’s or woman’s jail?
