  • A UK survey found a steep decline in the happiness of girls and young women over the last decade.

  • A West Midlands man fatally stabbed his eight-year-old daughter in the chest with a kitchen knife moments after threatening to kill her mother, who had come to pick her daughter up after visitation. He now claims he doesn’t remember the murder.
