Morning Juice: "Little Chocolate Boy," Murder for Hire, and Peyton Manning
... Anyway, a cell-phone video came out over the weekend that showed the teacher obviously calling the student "Chocolate." She reportedly insisted that "the incident was a misunderstanding and that she was referring to chocolates she was handing out during class." Suuuure. [WSVN]
Anything to beat a rap: Fort Lauderdale murder suspect Narcy Novack, on trial on charges that she hired men to beat her husband to death, is trying to get her videotaped statements to police thrown out because she didn't know she didn't have to talk to them. Novak's husband, Fountainbleu Hotel heir Ben Novack Jr., was found beaten to death in New York in 2009. Though she said Friday she was never given a break and actually contemplated suicide during police questioning, transcripts indicate she repeatedly declined breaks and food and volunteered to take a polygraph.
