A Kansas man who killed a woman because he thought she was a zombie will now spend about 17 years in the slammer for his actions.
Christopher Duane Wallace of Overland Park was sentenced Monday for the strangling and beating death of Jennifer Lopez, 35.
According to the Kansas City Star , Wallace was in a meth-induced state when he attacked Lopez in January 2016, believing she was a member of the undead.
Wallace told cops he had fallen asleep when Lopez woke him up. That's when he began to beat her, according to court documents .
Lopez was Wallace's roommate at the time of her demise.
The 38-year-old murderer pleaded no contest to second-degree murder charges in February. He was sentenced to 16 years and 11 months in prison.

Brits feared ye olde zombies

Medieval peasants were as terrified of ye olde zombies as much as the biggest Walking Dead geek, a new study reports.
Villagers in Yorkshire routinely burned and dismembered the skeletons of the recently departed. And the archeologists who authored the report say citizens were terrified of the living dead.
The time frame for the licking the living dead is the 11th to 13th centuries, they said of the burial site they exhumed.
“The patterning in knife-marks appears more consistent with decapitation and dismemberment, as documented as means of dealing with cases of reanimated corpses,” the study said, conducted by Historic England and the University of Southampton.
Archeologists analyzed 137 bone fragments from excavation sites in England dating back over 700 years to draw their conclusions.
And if zombie nation wasn’t wasn’t enough, the boffins have another twisted theory about the odd cuts on the bones — cannibalism.

The Walking Dead production shuts down after sickening stuntman fall

Production on The Walking Dead in Georgia has been shut down following a sickening injury to a stuntman.


John Bernecker is fighting for his life in an Atlanta hospital after falling 30 feet onto a concrete floor.


He is currently under the watch of top neurosurgeons, and producers of the TV zombie series have opted to halt production as they await medical updates.


“We are saddened to report that John Bernecker, a talented stuntman for The Walking Dead and numerous other television shows and films, suffered serious injuries from a tragic accident on set,” TV bosses at U.S. network AMC said in an official statement released on Thursday.


“He was immediately transported to an Atlanta hospital, and we have temporarily shut down production. We are keeping John and his family in our thoughts and prayers.”
Bernecker’s girlfriend Jennifer Cocker, who is a stuntwoman, previously posted an update on Facebook, stating: “John deserves to be seen by every neurosurgeon and doctor there is until one of them sees the life we all know he has in him and bring him back to us (sic).”


She added: “THIS ISNT FAIR.”

Stuntman dies after fall on 'The Walking Dead' set: Report

ATLANTA — A stuntman for “The Walking Dead” has died after falling on the Georgia set of the hit television show. It’s the first on-set death in the U.S. in nearly three years.
John Bernecker, 33, died about 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at an Atlanta hospital after falling on the show’s set in Senoia, about 35 miles (56 kilometres) south of Atlanta, Coweta County Coroner Richard Hawk said Friday.
Bernecker died from blunt force trauma and his death is considered accidental, Hawk said.
“The Walking Dead,” the often-gory AMC show based on a comic series about people fighting to survive a zombie apocalypse, is filming its eighth season.
Phone and email messages left for AMC representatives were not immediately returned Friday.
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has opened an investigation, agency spokesman Michael D’Aquino said in an email Friday.
Bernecker’s passing is the first on-set death in the United States since an audio technician for the show “Cops” was killed during a shootout in Omaha, Nebraska, in August 2014. Cameraman Bryce Dion, 38, was killed at the scene of an attempted armed robbery at a fast-food restaurant by a stray bullet from an Omaha police officer.
Earlier that year, in February 2014, Sarah Jones, 27, died when a freight train slammed into a film crew shooting “Midnight Rider,” a movie about the life of singer Gregg Allman. The crash happened on a Georgia railroad bridge where the crew was filming actor William Hurt in a hospital bed that was placed on the tracks even though owner CSX Transportation had denied permission to production managers.
A lawsuit filed by Jones’ parents, who live in Columbia, South Carolina, is currently being tried in Chatham County State Court in Savannah. It says CSX shares equal blame with production managers, who never told Jones and other crew members they were trespassing. They say the railroad should have taken safety precautions to slow the train before the crash.
CSX attorneys have said any evidence that CSX failed to follow internal policies doesn’t prove the railroad was negligent. They insist the full blame lies with the “Midnight Rider” production managers. The director, Randall Miller, spent a year in jail after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter and criminal trespassing, and the film was never finished.

‘Walking Dead’ stuntman fell head-first on concrete: report
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

SENOIA, Ga. — A stuntman fatally injured during production of “The Walking Dead” fell head-first onto concrete about 22 feet (7 metres) below after appearing to try to grab a railing to stop his fall, an assistant director told authorities.
Coweta County coroner Richard Hawk has said John Bernecker, 33, was pronounced dead at 6:30 p.m. July 12. Bernecker died from injuries suffered in a fall some five hours earlier on the hit show’s set in Senoia, about 35 miles (56 kilometres) south of Atlanta, Hawk said.
Assistant director Matthew Goodwin told a responding officer that Bernecker was supposed to fall from a balcony over a railing onto “a pad made of a layer of 22-inch boxes, port-a-pit pads, and a large pad,” according to a report from the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office.
Austin Amelio, the only actor on the balcony with Bernecker at the time of the fall, told the officer he asked Bernecker if he’d ever done a fall like that before. The stuntman said he’d done a few but never from that high up, and he “seemed a little nervous,” Amelio told the officer.
Filming began after Bernecker gave a thumbs-up to signal he was ready, Goodwin said. Bernecker got most of the way over the railing and then appeared to try to stop the fall by grabbing the railing with both hands, but he hit the balcony, causing him to release his grip and spin upside down as he fell, the report says.
Bernecker landed a few inches from the pad, Goodwin told the officer. An on-set medic immediately responded and requested that 911 be called. Bernecker was flown by helicopter to an Atlanta hospital.
AMC, the network that airs “The Walking Dead,” said in a statement Friday that Bernecker’s family had decided to donate his organs.
“We are deeply saddened by this loss and our hearts and prayers are with John’s family, friends and colleagues during this extremely difficult time,” the network statement said.

'The Walking Dead' getting Pokemon Go-like game

Last year, it was the augmented-reality challenge of Pokémon Go that brought new life to geo-gaming.
This year, AMC is hoping that terrain-based gamers will muster the same excitement for the dead.
The network and Next Games dropped a trailer Tuesday for "The Walking Dead: Our World," the latest AR offering that will overlay a fictional interactive game onto the player's real-world location through the roaming ease of a mobile screen.
In other words, in this virtual zombie apocalypse, you can fight the walkers wherever you're walking in the world of Rick, Negan and the Saviors.
"Our World," said to be coming soon to iOS and Android devices, is timed to the Oct. 22 Season 8 premiere of "The Walking Dead," the comics adaptation that is aiming to return to its ratings of yore.
Although Season 7 debuted to 17 million viewers last year, the series plummeted to 11.3 million by April's finale.
A week ago, Star Wars unveiled its massive AR game tied to December's arrival of "The Last Jedi," as augmented-reality entertainment from huge screen franchises becomes the new normal.

'Does anyone need saving'; Walking dead gather for New Jersey zombie walk

ASBURY PARK, N.J. — Hundreds of undead people have gathered at the New Jersey shore to take part in an annual zombie walk.
The event was staged Saturday in Asbury Park and featured a variety of mutated characters, including four undead Disney princesses and gory nurses. A zombie Donald Trump pushed a tombstone with his name on it and threw paper towels into the crowd while asking, “Does anyone need saving?”
Walk organizers tout the event as one of the biggest gatherings of the undead on the planet. Most participants apply their own ghoulish makeup before arriving, but others get their look done on scene from professional makeup artists.
Security was beefed up for the event following the mass shooting in Las Vegas, and organizers banned the use of prop weapons.
