Yahoo! National News - Sat, 01/31/2015 - 08:22

This file photo shows reporters that were enlisted to act as pall bearers at the interment of Lee Harvey Oswald at the Shannon Rose Hill Cemetery in Fort Worth, Texas. A Tarrant County judge on Friday, Jan. 30, 2015, said the original casket in which Lee Harvey Oswald was buried belongs to Oswald's brother, not the funeral home that auctioned it off for more than $87,000. The judge ordered the funeral home to pay the same amount of money in damages to Robert Oswald, saying its conduct was "malicious and wanton." Pallbearers from left end - Jerry Flemmons with crewcut and no glasses. In front of Flemmons are reporters Ed Horn and Mike Cochran. Funeral director Paul J. Groody was among the pallbearers. On the far side of the casket are Jon McConal, rear, and Preston McGraw, front. The pallbearer obscured behind Groody could not be identified.

Ex-New Jersey pharmacist gets more than 6 years in prison for trying to make ricin

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 01/31/2015 - 08:20
(Reuters) - A former New Jersey pharmacist has been sentenced to 6-1/2 years in prison for "attempting to weaponize" the deadly toxins ricin and abrin and for possessing equipment for making illegal narcotics, the U.S. Justice Department said on Friday. Jordan Gonzalez, 34, pleaded guilty in May 2014 in federal court in New Jersey. In addition to the prison term "for attempting to weaponize the lethal toxins" and possessing a prohibited flask with the intention of using it to produce illegal narcotics, U.S. District Judge Mary Cooper sentenced Gonzalez to five years of supervised release, the Justice Department said in a statement. Gonzalez was arrested in November 2013 after law enforcement officials tracked several suspicious deliveries to his New York City apartment, including a kilogram of a toxic and explosive compound, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has said.
