Bloody and naked, man bites woman

US: Police say a naked, bloody man bit a woman's head after injuring himself while jumping from the second floor of a northeastern Pennsylvania home he'd broken into.

Twenty-year-old Richard Cimino Jr. was charged Wednesday with aggravated assault and a dozen other counts in Friday's bizarre incident in Hawley, Wayne County.

Cimino, of Doylestown, allegedly stripped down and broke into an empty home after first trying an occupied house. Police say he was badly hurt jumping from a window but that didn't stop him from attacking a woman walking down the street nearby.

Investigators alleged Cimino was "screaming like an animal" as he bit the woman. The Citizens' Voice of Wilkes-Barre reports she and a companion escaped and called police.

Cimino remains hospitalized. Court documents don't list an attorney for him. (AP)

Judge weds couple then sentences groom to prison

OKLAHOMA: Talk about the old ball and chain. A judge sentenced an Oklahoma man to four years in federal prison on a firearm charge then minutes later performed a marriage ceremony to wed the new inmate and his longtime girlfriend.

Thursday was a busy day for Larry Austin and Dustie Trojack.

First they obtained their marriage license, then Austin pleaded guilty to the firearm charge and was sentenced by Oklahoma County Judge Jerry Bass.

Shortly afterward, Bass married the happy couple who kissed before federal authorities whisked Austin away.

Austin's attorney, Scott M. Anderson, tells The Oklahoman that Austin had helped to raise Trojack's two sons and he didn't want to lose contact with them while he was serving time. (AP)

11-month-old boy given a bottle filled with 'bleach'

UK: A 53-year-old woman was caught for giving a toddler a milk bottle filled with bleach solution.

The incident occurred when the child had accompanied his parents to a McDonald's outlet in Eltham, south London, reports Daily Mail.

The parents had left the child with the grandmother while they queued up for the food. When they returned to the table, they found the baby frothing in the mouth and vomiting.

The baby is safely back home from the hospital.

The culprit was caught when she tried to administer a bottle to yet another baby who was lying in the pram outside a branch of Mothercare in Eltham. Luckily for the child, the mother spotted her instantly and stopped the baby from drinking the toxic concoction.

India to wear 'lucky shirt' for World Twenty20

INDIA: India's cricketers have been ordered to wear the same jersey design that won them the World Cup last year for next week's World Twenty20 in a bid to bring them good luck.
Nike, the Indian team's clothing sponsor, had earlier this month unveiled a new Twenty20 design that displayed the national colours prominently and even paraded top stars in the new outfit at a media launch.
But India's cricket chiefs have asked the players to wear the same blue shirts in which they won the 50-over World Cup in order to bring good luck to the team, the Times of India reported on Friday.
"It's our decision to ask the players to wear the jersey which they had used during the 2011 World Cup," Indian cricket board official Ratnakar Shetty told the newspaper.
India won the inaugural World Twenty20 in 2007 but failed to make the semi-finals of the next two editions in 2009 and 2010.
The new T20 design had been welcomed by skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and senior batsman Virender Sehwag when it was launched.
Dhoni said the design would help fans identify with the shortest format of the game.
"When we see players in white, we know they are playing Test cricket," he said. "Similarly, when you see them in blue, you know an ODI is going on.
"Now that we have a different T20 shirt, there will be a strong association between the format and the jersey."
Sehwag had said he liked the new jersey because it displayed the national colours of red, white and green.
"I play with my heart and I play for the national flag," he said. "I like this jersey because the national colours are on my heart."
The World Twenty20 opens in Sri Lanka on Tuesday. (AFP)
