Adult Swim cut ties with Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland

A statement released by Adult Swim/Cartoon Network/Boomerang communications revealed that ties have been cut from popular show Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland.

Roland has recently appeared in court over domestic violence charges which stemmed from allegations made back in 2020. 

Roiland will no longer be a part of Rick and Morty, despite the show continuing to work on the future of the show beloved by many. NBC revealed the charges on January 13th, with criminal complaints having been filed in May 2020. 

Roiland has pleaded not guilty to one felony count of domestic battery with corporal injury as well as one felony count of false imprisonment by menace, violence, fraud and/or deceit. 

Reports indicate that there have been more than a dozen pre-trial hearings since the charges were filed. However, Roiland’s lawyer said that the charges against the show’s co-creator were inaccurate. 

The 42-year-old was released on a $50,000 bond back in August 2020, with the alleged victim being a woman Roiland was dating at the time. 

Deadline states that Roiland could face up to 7 years behind bars and heavy fines if found guilty. Roiland voiced various characters on the show, including titular characters Rick and Morty, alternating between the voices during filming.

Kaya was unfortunately and horribly killed on her 30th birthday in Gzira after a cocaine-intoxicated Jeremie Camilleri drove his car over her and into a KFC establishment in the vicinity.

He then reportedly proceeded to throw stones at her from the debris, assaulting anyone who tried to help Pelin. Jeremie is currently pleading not guilty to the murder charges.

Two teens identified and arrested after Valletta assault

Police have revealed that intensive investigations have resulted in the arrest of two 16-year-old teens believed to be behind the vicious assault upon other youth in Valletta last Saturday. 

The assault left a 15-year-old boy with a broken leg and in need of surgery after a gang of thugs targeted a group of 14 to 17 year old minors in Merchant’s Street. 

Further investigations are still underway as the two boys identified are expected to be charged in court tomorrow. 

The story enraged many and terrified parents whose young teenage children often meet up in the capital city as they fear for their safety. This incident also prompted Prime Minister Robert Abela to admit that he does not feel fully secure trusting his daughter going out out of fear of a similar incident. 

This is a developing story.
