Spring Hill woman charged after driving off with baby


Woman charged after driving off with baby

A Spring Hill woman is accused of driving away with the infant son of her brother's fiancee after dropping the child's mother off at the Dawn Center. According to a Hernando County Sheriff's report, Lisa Conigliaro, 26, of 4479 Augustine Road, was arguing with the mother about having the 7-month-old staying at the shelter. When they got to the shelter, as the mother went to get a stroller from the vehicle's trunk, Conigliaro drove off with the boy, the report states. Investigators located Conigliaro about an hour later and recovered the child, who was not harmed. Conigliaro was arrested on a charge of interfering with child custody and was held at the Hernando County Jail on $2,000 bail.

  2. Manslaughter charges eyed in deadly London fire sparked by refrigerator


    LONDON — Manslaughter charges are among the offenses under consideration in the devastating Grenfell Tower blaze that killed 79 people, London police said Friday.

Tests so far have found that at least three high-rise apartment buildings in the U.K. have flammable external panels like the ones believed to have contributed to a fire that killed 79 people in London, Britain's government said Thursday. The local council in Camden, a borough of London, removed cladding from one of its buildings for further testing after tests they commissioned showed some of their panels were of the flammable variety "and not the ones they ordered." It was unclear whether the Camden example was one of the three mentioned by the government. [Associated Press]
