FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.

Pro-gay marriage signals seen in U.S. Supreme Court action

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 02/10/2015 - 05:19

Two bride figurines are seen during a rally in response to the California Supreme Court's ruling regarding Proposition 8 in HollywoodBy Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court's move on Monday to allow gay marriage to proceed in Alabama is the strongest signal yet that the justices are likely to rule in June that no state can restrict marriage to only heterosexual couples. Of the nine justices, only two - conservatives Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia - dissented from the court's refusal to block gay weddings from starting in Alabama. Gay marriage is now legal in 37 states. Thomas acknowledged in a dissenting opinion that the court’s move to allow gay marriages to go ahead "may well be seen as a signal of the court’s intended resolution" as it considers cases from four other states on whether same-sex marriage bans are permitted under the U.S. Constitution.

Ex-wife says suspect in boy's 1979 murder confessed to killing man

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 02/10/2015 - 04:50

Pedro Hernandez appears in Manhattan Criminal Court in New YorkBy Natasja Sheriff NEW YORK (Reuters) - The ex-wife of Pedro Hernandez, the man charged in the 1979 murder of 6-year-old Etan Patz, testified on Monday that he said he strangled to death a young man on a New York City street. Hernandez, 54, is on trial on charges of kidnapping and murdering Patz, who disappeared on May 25, 1979, while walking alone to a school bus stop in Manhattan's Soho neighborhood. Testifying in state court in Manhattan, Daisy Rivera said Hernandez told her in 1982 that he had recently killed a man. Her testimony came on the same day that Mike Pike, a childhood friend of Hernandez's, testified that Hernandez confessed decades ago to killing a "dark" boy.
