June 12, 1994, was the date of a double murder that would kick off one of the most memorable and controversial trials of the 1990s. Former football star O.J. Simpson was accused and acquitted of killing his ex-wife and her friend on that day.
Christie Prody, who dated O.J. Simpson for 13 years, has been accused of trying to steal a woman’s purse outside a Fargo, N.D., mall. Police say Prody, 37, attempted to snatch the purse, leading to an altercation in which both Prody and her alleged victim ended up on the ground in a scuffle. Mall security, then police, arrived, and Prody was arrested. She is facing a felony charge of robbery.
