Mental treatment sought for woman charged with killing Montour County man after using his bathroom

DANVILLE – Involuntary mental treatment is being sought for a Florida woman accused of slitting the throat of an elderly Montour County man after she used his bathroom.

The competency issue delayed Thursday’s preliminary hearing for Kathleen Susan Reed, 37, of Pembroke Pines, who is charged with homicide, theft and possession of an instrument of crime.

Reed is accused of killing W. John Ditzler, 83, on July 21 in his Bloom Road home, five miles east of Danville.

A court-ordered mental evaluation determined Reed would be unable to participate and assist in her own defense, her attorney Michael P. Dennehey stated in a court filing.

However, Dr. Richard E. Fischbein, a psychiatrist, believes her capacity or competency to stand trial could be restored with medications, therapy and placement in a state mental health forensic unit, Dennehey pointed out.

District Attorney Angela Mattis had revealed following Reed’s arrest that she had

Oklahoma Teacher Allegedly Sexually Assaulted 4-Year-Old Girl In Daycare Bathroom, Arrested

An Oklahoma pre-school teacher was taken into custody Monday for allegedly sexually abusing a four-year-old girl.

The accused, identified as 27-year-old Christopher Ribertone, allegedly sexually assaulted the child in a bathroom at Childcare Network daycare four months ago when no one was around.

The daycare issued a statement Tuesday saying, “During the summer, we were notified of concern about a staff member at Childcare Network #202 in Oklahoma City. The safety and well-being of the children we serve is our top priority.”

What’s the Most Unhygienic Thing I’m Doing in the Bathroom Without Realizing It?

People do so many unhygienic things in the bathroom that it’s honestly kind of hard to pick the worst. If you aren’t closing your shower curtain and liner after a shower, you’re trapping moisture on it, giving mold and bacteria a place to hang out. If you aren’t washing your bathmat regularly — and who does that? — all the water that drips off and falls into it turns the mat into bacteria condos. And god forbid you ever, ever flush your toilet with the lid open, unless you want to spray an imperceptible but far too real mist of the water in the bowl in a six-foot radius around the toilet. Oh, if there’s anything else in the bowl when you flush? It gets sprayed, too. Hope you keep your toothbrush at least seven feet away.

However, the most unhygienic thing you do in your bathroom involves the

Snake Catcher Takes Mirror Selfie With Deadly Reptile After Capturing It From Bathroom

Selfies are all the rage now, and it seems a snake, caught from a bathroom in Westville, a town in South Africa, is getting onto the trend. Captured by Snake Catcher Nick Evans, the reptile selfie is now going viral on social media.

Evans caught the “selfie star” from a residence Thursday after the home owner alerted him about the snake in the bathroom.

“The homeowner had heard something moving by her sink. She looked, and saw the snake slithering along, and then it went behind the mirror. She saw the tail sticking out, and wanted to pull it out!” Evans wrote in a Facebook post.

Upon receiving the call from the owner, Evans assumed the snake might be a small non-venomous reptile. However, he was shocked to find a deadly black mamba slithering in the bathroom.

“When I arrived, the snake was tucked up between the wall and a

Want an Inexpensive Decor Update? Try Out These 4 Kitchen and Bathroom Trends for 2021
