Man freed on bail in Pennsylvania murder case after 25 years

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 08/23/2014 - 06:12
By David DeKok HARRISBURG Pa. (Reuters) - A man whose murder conviction was quashed this summer was granted bail by a federal magistrate on Friday after nearly 25 years in a Pennsylvania prison on charges he had set a fire that killed his daughter at a Korean religious retreat. Han Tak Lee, 79, a businessman from Queens, New York, was convicted of arson and murder after his 20-year-old, mentally ill daughter died in a fire at the Hebron Camp in Monroe County, Pennsylvania, in July 1989. District Judge William Nealon accepted a recommendation from Carlson and threw out Lee’s state court conviction. Lee’s lawyer, Peter Goldberger of Ardmore, Pennsylvania, worked for more than 15 years to persuade authorities that Lee’s conviction was based on unscientific evidence.

By Lee van der Voo PORTLAND Ore. (Reuters) - An unattended 2-year-old boy lost two fingers earlier this week after falling on an escalator at a Portland, Oregon-area mall and getting his hand caught in the mechanism, state investigators said on Friday. The report by the state's chief elevator inspector said security footage showed the boy trying to go up the downward-moving escalator at the Washington Square Mall in the Portland suburb of Tigard when he fell. The child's left fingers became trapped under the comb plates at the bottom of the machine, the report said, and two of his fingers were severed when his mother pulled him up to free him from the escalator.   (Reporting by Lee van der Voo;

Alabama teacher suspended after 6th graders re-enact Missouri shooting

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 08/23/2014 - 05:55
An Alabama teacher was suspended after her sixth-grade students re-enacted along racial lines the police shooting of Michael Brown, the black teenager whose killing in Ferguson, Missouri, has sparked nightly clashes, school officials said Friday. The skit was the students' idea, but the teacher erred when she did not stop them from acting it out, said Audrey Strong, principal of Brantley Elementary School in Selma, Alabama, where the re-enactment occurred on Monday. "The teacher made the poor judgment of allowing that skit to continue once she saw the props and the context," Strong said.
