Judge scraps electronic evidence in ex-NFL star's murder case

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 07:05

Former NFL player Aaron Hernandez attends hearing in Bristol County Superior Court in Fall River, MassachusettsA judge has thrown out some electronic evidence in a murder case against former National Football League star Aaron Hernandez because of a paperwork problem, according to local media reports on Tuesday. Bristol County Superior Court Judge Susan Garsh said evidence from two smartphones and three tablets seized last year from Hernandez's home in North Attleboro, Massachusetts, could not be used in his trial for the murder of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd because they were not listed in a police search warrant, according to the reports. Hernandez's defense team had asked that the evidence be thrown out. Prosecutors say Hernandez and two associates shot Lloyd to death in an industrial park near Hernandez's house in June 2013.


Serial flight stowaway from California arrested in Arizona

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 07:04
A serial airplane stowaway recently released from jail in California was arrested in Arizona on Tuesday on charges of criminal trespass for lingering at the Phoenix airport without a ticket, police said. Marilyn Hartman, 62, was arrested at Sky Harbor Airport after she was recognized by employees while wandering in the baggage claim area, said Phoenix Police Sergeant Trent Crump. "Hartman is being booked this afternoon for criminal trespassing and officers are requesting a mental health evaluation," police said in a statement. Her arrest in Arizona comes less than two weeks after she was released from a Los Angeles County jail after serving just three days of a 177-day sentence for violating her probation by wandering around Los Angeles International Airport without an airline ticket.

Colorado governor defends death sentence comment as 'hypothetical'

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 07:02

Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper lays out his plans for the next state legislative session at a news conference in his office at the Capitol in DenverBy Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper said on Tuesday that he was responding to a hypothetical question when he raised the possibility of granting clemency to the state's longest-serving death row inmate should he lose his re-election bid in November. Hickenlooper, a Democrat, said in a yet-to-be aired interview with CNN that he could consider commuting the death sentence of Nathan Dunlap, whose execution the governor indefinitely blocked last year, if Republicans make it a campaign issue. “If that (death penalty) becomes a political issue, in that context within a campaign, obviously there’s a period of time between the election and the end of the year where individuals can make decisions, such as a governor can,” the governor told the CNN interviewer.  “I could give ... a full clemency.” An audio recording of the interview was first posted by the conservative news website Complete Colorado, which said it was obtained under an open-records request.

Official proposes turning Houston Astrodome into indoor park

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 08/27/2014 - 06:56
By Amanda Orr HOUSTON (Reuters) - A commissioner in the Texas county that is home to the Houston Astrodome wants to turn what was once described as the "Eighth Wonder of the World" into a huge indoor park. The nearly 50-year-old structure, once seen as an architectural marvel, has been gutted and unused for years, with many in Houston unwilling to pay for its upkeep or spend tax dollars to restore it for a new use. Ed Emmett, a top Harris County official, told reporters his proposal, which includes indoor hiking trails and a concert venue, is still in the planning phase. Other rejected proposals for the former home of baseball's Houston Astros and pro football's old Houston Oilers have included conversion into a luxury hotel and a movie studio.
