iStock(MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich.) — A Michigan man was sentenced on Thursday to 60 weekend days in jail for poisoning his ex-wife’s coffee, outraging prosecutors who called for a harsher penalty.Brian Kozlowski, 46, of Macomb County, Michigan, routinely placed sleeping pills in his wife’s coffee throughout July 2018 after she filed for divorce, prosecutors said.He pleaded no contest to charges of poisoning a drink in June.Therese Kozlowski, who is now his ex-wife, said she found out about the poisoning after she began to feel sick. She said she believes he did it in an effort to kill her.Eventually, she hid cameras in the kitchen that caught her then-husband placing the pills in her coffee on multiple occasions.“He put eight sleeping pills into that coffee pot every single day for weeks. An adult dosage, according to the packaging, is one. I was being hunted by a dangerous predator, but in this nightmare, the predator was Brian,” Therese Kozlowski told the court Thursday. “I believe this was attempted murder. Once Brian realized he lost me and there was no getting me to stay in this unhealthy marriage, his goal was to eliminate me.”Prosecutors called the 60-day sentence “a slap in the face” and said they’re planning to appeal the decision.“You shouldn’t be able to commit at 15-year felony by poisoning someone and only have to serve weekends,” Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith said. “It’s unbelievable to me.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

TAUK has released a new song, entitled “Come On Now”, which marks the instrumental quartet’s first studio output in 17 months.“Come On Now” once again finds TAUK doing what they do best with a six-and-a-half minute progressive, instrumental journey. The song captures guitarist Matt Jalbert and keyboardist Alric “A.C.” Carter switching off on leading the rhythm section, composed of drummer Isaac Teel and bassist Charlie Dolan, through the exploratory composition. Even this studio version reeks of the live energy that TAUK is famous for exuding at their concerts, and the song will no doubt transition flawlessly to the stage. With a six-minute, twenty-eight second runtime, it’s tempting to think that the song may meander at points, but rather it is meticulously orchestrated; but that isn’t to say there aren’t built-in opportunities for extensive improvisation throughout the planned movements.Listen to “Come On Now”, the latest studio effort from TAUK.TAUK – “Come On Now”[Video: TAUK]“Come On Now” marks the band’s studio follow-up to 2018’s Shapeshifter II: Outbreak. Since that last studio album, the band has kept up a relentless touring schedule of stand-alone concerts as well as festival appearances. That extensive touring has produced three live albums in the past 15 months, Real TAUK volumes one, two, and three. In a statement with “Come On Now”, however, the band made clear that they will refocus their priorities this year and attempting to find a balance between touring and studio sessions. While they gave no official word on a new album, the band said they “plan to write, record and release a bunch of new tunes before the end of the year.”After two co-headlining dates with The Motet this weekend, at the 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C. and XL Live in Harrisburg, PA respectively, TAUK heads overseas to provide support for Umphrey’s McGee during their RÖCKJAVIK run of shows in Iceland.

The NFL Draft is still 66 days away, but already there’s plenty of mock drafts and projections as to what teams are going to do once Roger Goodell takes the platform in Nashville, Tennessee and gets booed as he does every year. The Browns are sitting at number 17 in the first round, and overall have 10 draft choices to try and improve on their team and make a run at the 2019 AFC North Title.Cleveland has all of their picks in the first six rounds along with a third-rounder from New England (Danny Shelton trade), fifth-rounders from New England (Josh Gordon) and Jacksonville (Carlos Hyde) and a seventh-rounder from Jacksonville (Cody Kessler). As far as projections go, SB Nation today released their first Mock Draft for April’s big event, and they have the Browns going cornerback in round one, taking Greedy Williams from LSU to pair up with last year’s first round pick in Denzel Ward. Here’s what SB Nation has to say about Williams going to the Browns:Cornerback might not seem like a question mark for the Browns after taking Denzel Ward at No. 4 last year and adding some veterans like Terrance Mitchell and T.J. Carrie. But consider that Ward is coming off two concussions at the end of last season, Mitchell had a broken arm, and Carrie was just average. The team will also have to make a decision on slot corner Briean Boddy-Calhoun. All that adds up to cornerback potentially being an early need, especially if a player as good as Williams slips in the first roundHere’s a video on Williams with some highlights of his time at LSU: Related Topics2019 NFL DraftBrownsfeaturedGreedy Williams Matt Loede Matt Loede has been a part of the Cleveland Sports Media for over 21 years, with experience covering Major League Baseball, National Basketball Association, the National Football League and even high school and college events.

New Delhi: After a record setting 5-0 clean sweep in the T20I series, India will look to continue their winning momentum in the ODI series against New Zealand. India are set to play three ODIs, starting Wednesday. India, however, suffered a big blow ahead of the match as limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma was ruled out of the ODI and Test series. Rohit had to retire hurt during 5th T20I match that India won on Sunday.Mayank Agarwal has been confirmed as Rohit’s replacement for the ODI series while Shubman Gill – who recently slammed a double ton against New Zealand day, has been called for the Test series. Agarwal was the logical choice in the white-ball format since he was the reserve opener in the side during the home ODI series against the West Indies when Shikhar Dhawan was absent due to knee injury. However, he is not expected to play in the first match with KL Rahul and Prithvi Shaw expected to open for India.ALSO READ: Rohit Sharma Ruled Out Of ODI And Test Series Against New Zealand Due To Calf InjuryIndia vs New Zealand 1st ODI: Probable Playing XIIndia Predicted XI: Prithvi Shaw, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (C), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Manish Pandey, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Navdeep Saini, Jasprit BumrahNew Zealand Predicted XI: Martin Guptill, Tom Blundell, Kane Williamson (C), Ross Taylor, Tom Latham (WK), James Neesham, Colin de Grandhomme, Mitchell Santner, Scott Kuggeleijn, Ish Sodhi, Hamish BennettIndia vs New Zealand 1st ODI: Pitch ReportThe third T20I was also played in Bay Oval.

Not all stories are destined for happy endings but what a story it would have been for the 2019 Zenith Bank Women’s Basketball League finalists MFM Queens.Queens, formed just last year with a coterie of young players thrown together under the tutelage of famed basketball coach Adewunmi Aderemi, in only their second year in the Zenith Bank Women’s Basketball League, came within 3 points of forcing overtime in Thursday’s final against champions Air Warriors.Although Air Warriors who won Thursday’s final by 55-52 points are themselves first-timers in the league, they, however, boast veterans of the women’s game within their ranks and in League MVP Marjanatu Musa, they possess a player who has already been invited to Nigeria’s national 3×3 squad.Having been given advance notice of what to expect in the final when both sides clashed earlier in the Final 8, Queens head coach Adewunmi Aderemi felt his side were well prepared for the final but admitted that the occasion got to his girls who, he says, were undone by nerves.“We learned a lot of lessons from the first game but my guys were jittery,” Aderemi told busybuddiesng.com.Download Audio“They were afraid, and I gave them confidence that “look, they are human beings like you, and once you step on the basketball court you don’t have any regard for anybody you play your game”. So they made up their minds to come out and play, but it was a little bit too late.”It did take a while for MFM Queens to get going especially in the first half where they found it difficult to come to grips with the aggressive front court defensive strategy employed by Air Warriors who ended the half with an eleven point lead.Queens improved immeasurably after the break and matched Air Warriors in the third quarter before going on to win the fourth 17-9 and were a missed two-point shot away from tying the game and forcing overtime.“We scouted the way they play, and they put a lot of pressure on everybody from the front court. But we had an attitude that we were able to break it but we were unable to convert all the baskets,” Aderemi said, rueing their missed shots.Download AudioTheir loss in the final notwithstanding, Aderemi feels a sense of pride in what his wards have achieved this season especially as not many gave them a chance considering the calibre of teams in the Final 8.After losing out in the semifinals last year, a silver medal and a place on the continent is adequate recompense for the efforts of his players he says.A lot more work still remains for his side he says, but he envisages an even better outcome next season for MFM Queens.“Actually, I am very happy with the result of the game we played today,” the former D’Tigers assistant coach told busybuddiesng.com.“Initially, nobody gave us the chance of getting to the finals. So we sailed through the quarterfinals, we sailed through the semifinals and we played the final and we lost by only two points.Download Audio“It’s a great effort from my players, great effort from the other team that won. We still have a lot of work to do, and by next season, by the grace of God first position.”RelatedBasketball: Air Warriors, MFM Queens Get Automatic 2019 FIBA Africa Club Championship BerthsOctober 27, 2019In “BasketBall”2019 Zenith Bank Women’s Basketball League: Air Warriors Beat MFM To Win Maiden Title, Murjanatu Musa Emerges League MVPOctober 24, 2019In “BasketBall”Basketball: Zenith Women’s League Resumes 7 SeptemberSeptember 3, 2019In “BasketBall”
