Voodoo Caused Man To Kill Kids, Himself: A father, convinced he was the victim of a voodoo curse, drowned his two young children in the bathtub and then jumped to his death in front of a subway train, police said Thursday. Franz Bordes, 39, died at Wednesday evening at a Brooklyn subway station. Investigators found several suicide notes indicating he was at odds with relatives of the children's mother, a Haitian immigrant like Bordes. "They're using everything they can to destroy me, most of all voodoo," one of the notes read, according to police.

Pastor accused of rape under guise of casting out lesbian demon: A Fort Worth pastor has been indicted for allegedly raping a church member at his house last year under the guise of casting out demons. Leonard Ray Owens is free on $25,000 bail and is now awaiting trial on a charge of second-degree felony sexual assault. If convicted, he could be sentenced to two to 20 years in prison. The 63-year-old pastor of the Prayer House of Faith was arrested in November. Police began investigating him last year after a 22-year-old woman reported that Owens raped her twice at his Fort Worth home. The woman told police that she went to Owens' home for counseling after a miscarriage in July.
