• Star Wars fanatic jailed for killing wife who smashed toy collection

      La-Touche said Thai-born Pornpilai Srisroy had smashed up his prized collection of Star Wars toys, which he had built up since he was a child. La-Touche – also known as Rickie Nehls – suffocated his wife, 28, then ran sobbing to his mother, who lived in a nearby street.


      The 30-year-old told police his wife had wanted to ‘make his life hell’ and once threatened to kill him when he was asleep then ‘cut him up and eat him’. He claimed he was a henpecked husband who flipped after Srisroy threatened to leave the marital home in Greater Manchester and go back to Thailand.


      Srisroy died in April when the couple – who had a child together – rowed violently at 6.30am. A relative later went to the house and discovered her body in the bedroom.


      Senior investigating officer Andy Tattersall, from Greater Manchester Police, said: ‘This is a tragic case. La-Touche will have to live the rest of his life with the awful knowledge that he is responsible for killing his wife.’


      La-Touche denied murder but pleaded guilty to manslaughter. He was ordered to serve a minimum of 12 years.

      Independence Day: Resurgence. Not a bad action/sci-fi flick. It had a different feel than the original. Maybe if the producers hadn't waited 20 years?

      That's both cool and sad, BB. On PBS lately, they've had Ken Burns' National Parks documentaries showing, and I enjoy seeing places I've been before (but

      As of right now I believe the plan for the two 4-packs (one pack for the turtles and one pack for the foot clan) are that they will be only SDCC exclusives.

      Man, those are pretty cool too! Too many great choices all of a sudden.

      Are the NECA figures going to be released in a non-exclusive format?
