22 hours ago Nine rescued after a fishing boat goes up in flames near Hatteras
HATTERAS, N.C. (WAVY) -- Nine people are safely back on land after their fishing boat burned up Thursday afternoon off the coast of the Outer Banks.A boat called the Twisted Tuna caught fire 18 miles southeast of Hatteras Inlet, according to Petty Officer Joshua Canup of the U.S. Coast Guard. A U.S. Coast Guard command center was alerted to the fire around 4:30 p.m. from a boat called Predator.Another boat called Brother's Pride picked up the nine people -- six passengers and three crew members -- who were aboard the burning boat. The Twisted Tuna had sunk by the time U.S. Coast Guard crews arrived. However, Jimmy Temple will likely never be able to get the image of it sinking out of their minds. "We could have got killed out here," Temple told 10 On Your Side after he returned to his Chesapeake home Friday. Temple was on the fishing charter Thursday, 11 miles offshore. Kollin Harris, his stepson, was on the upper deck when the boat became engulfed from the engine. "We're not going to die out here. That was my first thought," said Harris, who quickly began to make sure everyone got life jackets on. When nearby boats started heading their direction, Temple and Harris started having people go overboard. A move that proved vital."Right as the captain jumped off the boat, you heard this 'pow!' and something we think was glass, something like that, blew the back of the boat out," Temple said. "And it was full on inferno now!"The crew of Brother's Pride took the boaters aboard and then to the Hatteras Village Marina."They all wrapped their hands around us and said a big prayer for everybody," Temple said. "I thought that was great."He and the Coast Guard said nobody was injured.He urges everyone to make sure they always look out for other boaters in need. NOTE:  On WAVY-TV and in a previous version of this article, Mr. Jimmy Temple identified the owner of the boat as NASCAR legend Bobby Allison. We have since received word through Bobby Allison's spokesperson that it was 3 of his nephews who were on a boat, not owned by the family, who made the rescue. We regret the error.

1 day ago Va. Beach man found guilty of murdering ex-girlfriend with cyanide
VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) -- A Virginia Beach man has been found guilty of killing his ex-girlfriend by injecting her with cyanide.Joseph Merlino III was convicted of first-degree murder by a Virginia Beach jury on Friday afternoon after a week-long trial. Following an hour and a half of deliberations, the judge read the jury's verdict as Merlino sat expressionless. Prosecutors called their last witness to the stand Friday morning. Lawyers for Merlino called five witnesses to testify -- including Merlino himself.Earlier this week, the jury viewed video that prosecutors said showed Merlino injecting his ex-girlfriend, Ellie Tran, outside of her house on Valentine's Day 2017.An undercover Virginia Beach detective testified Thursday that Merlino's laptop showed he researched cyanide. Some of the Google searches included: "what if cyanide gets in blood stream" and "how many milligrams of cyanide will kill you."Prosecutors then called a New Hampshire woman to the stand, who said she had a vintage steel syringe listed for sale on Etsy and someone purchased it in January 2017.She sent the package to a pizza shop in Virginia Beach. The restaurant's owner testified Merlino picked up the package there. Merlino's lawyers say he was three hours away at his mom's house in Victoria, Virginia, when Tran was attacked.An FBI agent testified Merlino's cellphone was in Victoria, Virginia, but did not have any cell phone activity from that night or the next morning.Merlino's defense also says there is no record of him purchasing cyanide. Merlino is about two months into a hunger strike. Deputies say he has lost 40 pounds.

1 day ago New AC units at Newport News apartments are not working, residents say
NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) – Three days after residents marched on the management office at Aqua Vista Apartments, a contractor showed up to start repairs on 27 units without air conditioning.On Tuesday, Codes and Compliance officials issued 27 citations for each unit in need of repairs.Eternity Barnes, who organized the march, says fixing the air conditioning is a step in the right direction.  However, her thoughts have quickly changed.She says she thought the apartment was taking the correct steps to keep her family safe, but she says she was wrong. Gabrielle Carson is another resident who is angry and worried for his children. "I am stressed out. I wanted to go to the hospital last night because I was so stressed, but I can't leave my babies."Carson is a mother of four, with twins on the way. She says her energy she says is spent on trying to make sure her home is safe for her kids. 10 On Your Side learned the air conditioning units stopped working at the Aqua Vista apartments.The company put this family and others up in a hotel.However, on Friday Newport News fire vans arrived at the hotel to bring the families back to their apartments.Residents say they are returning too early because the AC is not working properly. Residents say the repairs aren't adequate, and they stopped by the apartments yesterday and it's not cool enough for their children. 10 On Your Side tried again to speak with an employee from the complex, however she said, "no comment."According to a spokeswoman with the City of Newport News, all units have working portable AC units.There were originally circuit issues, but we're told everything is up to code. 10 On Your Side followed the vans to the apartments in Newport News to see the reaction from residents returning home."It's hot in there," said one resident. "That portable is not kicking out nothing, that portable isn't kicking out nothing, it's still 80 degrees in there. It went from 84 degrees down to 80 degrees, that's ain't nothing. I don't know what we are going to do."Another woman told 10 On Your Side her room is at 70 degrees but there's no portable unit in her son's room. She says he has asthma. 10 On Your Side reached out to the parent company of Aqua Vista apartments.The executive vice president says every unit is up to code and all of the units are 74 degrees or cooler and being monitored.She says some units will get a more permanent solution next week and management has been in close contact with codes and compliance. 10 On Your Side also interviewed state Delegate Marcia Price, who was touring the apartments"I have learned that just because something is legally right does not mean its morally right," said Price.  "The residents have valid concerns." She spent time touring the apartments, but 10 On Your Side wasn't allowed on the property."I was under the impression that the law was that the rooms had to be cooled to 80 degrees. I can say with 100 percent certainty that I have seen rooms that are not being cooled to 80 degrees," Price said.
