The day after winning two Grammys for "Best Contemporary Christian Music Song" and "Best Contemporary Christian Music Album," Christian music artist Mandisa explained why she decided to skip out on the awards ceremony.

A 29-year-old Florida man who tricked his ex-girlfriend into taking an abortion pill, causing her to miscarry at six weeks, was sentenced on Monday to 13 years and eight months in federal prison.
"I don't believe Mr. Welden's an evil person, but he committed an evil act, and he's going to pay the consequences," said U.S. District Judge Richard Al Lazzara, according to The Tampa Tribune.
John Andrew Welden apologized for tricking his girlfriend at the time, Remee Jo Lee, into taking an abortion pill in May 2013 after finding out that she was pregnant.
"I've caused everyone a huge amount of emotional pain," Welden said before the court. "What I've done will stay with me every day for the rest of my life." He added that he spoke with "the most humble and remorseful heart" and wanted to express "sincere contrition" for his actions.
