SYRACUSE, NEW YORK – William D. Wood, Jr. pled guilty today to federal charges related to the September 2018 robbery and murders he committed at the Chili’s Grill and Bar in Dewitt, New York.

Wood, 35, of Syracuse, entered guilty pleas to three federal felonies: one count of robbery and two counts of using a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence and murder. He admitted that in September 2018, he planned and carried out an armed robbery of the Chili’s in Dewitt, and that during the commission of the robbery he directly caused the deaths of two people by use of a firearm.

Wood further admitted that during the early morning hours of September 15, 2018, armed with a loaded handgun, he forced his way into the back door of Chili’s, where four employees remained to close the restaurant. Wood admitted that he held all four employees on the ground at gunpoint, and after obtaining the available cash from the restaurant’s safe, shot and killed Stephen Gudknecht and Kristopher Hicks.

Wood admitted that his gun malfunctioned as he attempted to shoot another employee, allowing time for that employee and a fourth employee to hide and flee from Wood.

Wood’s sentencing is scheduled for December 29, 2021 before Senior United States District Judge Thomas J. McAvoy in Binghamton, New York. He faces maximum sentences of 20 years on the robbery conviction, and life on each of the two firearms offenses.

SPRINGDALE, Utah – On the morning of Wednesday, November 23, Zion National Park shuttle drivers reported that visitors had encountered an injured man and a non-responsive woman in the Narrows.

The Zion National Park Search and Rescue Team responded and found the man on Riverside Walk. Team members transported the man to the Zion Emergency Operations Center. Farther up the Narrows, other team members found a non-responsive woman near the Virgin River. First responders administered emergency aid, but they determined she was deceased.

Zion National Park’s response involved more than 20 search and rescue team members.

Background:

A 33-year-old man and 31-year-old woman, a married couple, had started their permitted 16-mile trip through the Narrows from the top-down on Tuesday, November 22. The man reported they became dangerously cold overnight and experienced symptoms consistent with hypothermia.

The pair stopped about a mile and a half from the north end of Riverside Walk (a paved trail that leads from the Temple of Sinawava to the Narrows). Early in the morning of November 23, the man continued on to get help while the woman remained. Park rangers encountered the man on Riverside Walk where other visitors were assisting him down the trail. Other visitors farther up the Narrows administered CPR to the woman before Zion Search and Rescue Team members arrived.

Grandma And Man She Unintentionally Texted For Thanksgiving Get Together For The 7th Year

After 7 years, a Thanksgiving tradition is still going strong following an accidental text message.

On Tuesday, Jamal Hinton posted on Instagram that he would be with Wanda Dench on Thanksgiving. Dench had believed that she was texting her grandson in 2016, to invite him over for Thanksgiving. Instead, she had unintentionally texted Hinton.

Dench, from Mesa, Arizona, didn’t know that her grandson had changed his phone number. Hinton, 17, had been in class at Desert Vista High School when he had gotten the message.

After the two determined the mistake, they sent pictures of themselves to each other. Hinton then asked if he was still invited.

“Of course, you can. That’s what grandmas do…feed everyone,” Dench responded.

Every year, Hinton documents the special occasion on social media.

In 2021, Dench and Hinton discussed their friendship.

“I would have missed out on a wonderful relationship. I’ve changed my view so much on the younger generation, and now that I’ve reflected back on all these years, I didn’t change their life; they changed mine,” she said.
