Teen Accused of Filming Utah Girl's Suicide Can Stand Trial: '[It's] Like Getting Away With Murder'

Entertainment
A Utah man who allegedly helped a 16-year-old girl hang herself and then filmed the suicide was found mentally competent to stand trial on a murder charge, PEOPLE confirms. Judge James Brady made the ruling in the Fourth District Court in Provo on Tuesday in the case of 18-year-old Tyerell Przybycien. Przybycien was also found competent to stand trial on the misdemeanor charge of failure to report the finding of a dead human body. The judge’s decision came after defense attorneys asked for a mental evaluation to be conducted on Przybycien. Geoffrey Fattah, a spokesperson with Utah State Courts, tells PEOPLE that Przybycien underwent two competency evaluations. Prosecutors allege that Przybycien purchased the rope used in the suicide and tied the noose for Jchandra Brown, who hanged herself

Southern Charm star Thomas Ravenel has a new girlfriend, and it doesn’t look like she’ll be BFFs with ex Kathryn Dennis, the mother of his children, anytime soon. The two women go at it in the season 5 trailer for the hit reality show, which returns to Bravo in April. “I want you to know, you’ve crossed the line. And as a mother, f— you,” Dennis tells Ravenel’s girlfriend Ashley, who met Ravenel — and their daughter Kensie, 4, and son Saint, 2½ — last May and relocated to Charleston a week later to be with him. They won’t be the only two in heated battle. Craig Conover and ex-girlfriend Naomie Olindo are trying to maintain a friendship after their breakup, which doesn’t always go as planned. “You will never, ever, ever, ever, ever be accountable for anything,” she tells him. “You will alwa

Nearly six months after the helicopter crash that claimed the life of country star Troy Gentry, his wife has taken legal action against the manufacturer of the fatal aircraft. Angela Gentry filed a suit in Pennsylvania on Feb. 14 against Sikorsky Aircraft Corp., Sikorsky Global Helicopters and Keystone Helicopter Corp, blaming them for “dangerous defects which caused” the death of her husband. The singer, one half of Montgomery Gentry, died on Sept. 8 when the Model 269 Schweitzer helicopter in which he was riding tumbled out of the sky near the Flying W Airport & Resort in Medford, New Jersey — where the vocal duo was due to perform later that day. According to Angela’s lawsuit, the pilot offered to take Troy on a sightseeing ride. Both men were killed in the crash, which a preliminar

New York-based actors Jackie Nguyen and Nate Huntley have spent years channeling different characters. So, when it came time for their engagement photo shoot, the pair knew they had to go all out. “When we were planning out our engagement photos, Jackie was like, ‘I don’t wanna do the normal engagement shoot where we’re standing hand-in-hand, like the Nicholas Sparks, almost-kissing look,’ ” Huntley, 26, tells PEOPLE. “Instead, she had this idea that we would take those kinds of photos, but dressed up as … like Thor and Harry Potter. But then it kind of evolved into, like, ‘who else should we be?’ ” In February 2017, Huntley and 29-year-old Nguyen teamed up with photographer Isaac James and posed for the first of three photo shoots, using New York’s Central Park as a backdrop for their por
