SAN DIEGO - A 69-year-old Oceanside man accused of killing his wife and then cooking her body parts has died of cancer before trial. Frederick Joseph Hengl, who had pleaded not guilty, died in the jail infirmary, the district attorney's office said Friday. Hengl was arrested Nov. 16, 2012, after neighbors complained of a foul odor coming from his home and the sound of a power saw. Police found Hengl's wife's head in a freezer and hunks of meat cooking on a stove. Hengl's wife, Anna Faris, 73, was reportedly suffering from Alzheimer's disease.

Snooki's totally grossed out about one part of her body, and she's thinking about fixing the situation. No, not that Situation, "Jersey Shore" fans! Where should we focus? Her breasts, she says. "My boobs are disgusting!," the "Dancing With the Stars" contestant revealed on the Friday episode of " Bethenny ," via E! News . Hey, things happen when you have a kid and then lose a ton - or even 40 pounds - of baby weight. Especially on a 4-foot, 8-inch frame. They're "hanging," she said, because they got so big when she was pregnant.

The feature debut from the Australian sibling writer-director team of Colin and Cameron Cairnes, "100 Bloody Acres" somehow manages to be both retro and up to date with its giddy, delightful gross-out horror-comedy mash-up storytelling. In the story, two brothers - draw your own connections there - are struggling to keep their organic fertilizer business going. The overbearing Lindsay (Angus Sampson) and meek Reg (Damon Herriman) have been using human bodies in the formula and are running out of their secret ingredient.

Paul Kevin Curtis dreamed of conspiracy and was convinced that the government was spying on him -- which it had been, at least a little, since 2007, in the sense that officials occasionally investigated him on suspicions that his anti-government ramblings might turn violent. The Mississippi Elvis impersonator was charged last week on suspicion of mailing three letters filled with ricin, a poison, to President Obama , Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) and Lee County, Miss., Judge Sadie Holland in the days following the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15. The letters inside were similar to ramblings he had posted on his blog and on his Facebook page.

WASHINGTON - In the early-morning hours before he was arrested on suspicion of sending a poison-laced letter to the president of the United States, Paul Kevin Curtis was typing messages on his Facebook profile. Over the previous few days, the 45-year-old part-time singer had posted photos of fellow Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison impersonators, snapshots of buxom women and a certificate welcoming him to Mensa, a society for people with high IQs. At 5 a.m. Wednesday, about 12 hours before his arrest, he wrote, "I'm on the hidden front lines of a secret war. A war that is making Billions of dollars for corrupt mafia related organizations and people.

Ryan Hollins really knows how to kick a guy when he's down. I mean, the Clippers backup center really knows how to do it. Just ask Houston Rockets center Jeremy Lin. Well, that might be kind of tough. So take a look at the video above and see for yourself. After snatching the ball from Hollins during the second quarter of Wednesday night's game at Staples Center, Lin was fouled by Clippers forward Lamar Odom. As he was falling to the floor, Lin was then kicked in the stomach by Hollins, who immediately raised both hands in an attempt somehow to prove his innocence (because those are the body parts used to kick someone)
