Judge denies bid for new trial in 'Fatal Vision' murder case

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 01:24
By Colleen Jenkins WINSTON-SALEM N.C. (Reuters) - An Army doctor whose conviction for the 1970 murders of his pregnant wife and two daughters prompted the bestseller "Fatal Vision" and a television mini-series has failed to convince a U.S. judge he deserves another trial. New evidence offered by Jeffrey MacDonald's attorneys in the latest round of a decades-long fight to prove his innocence was unreliable and insufficient to warrant further jury proceedings, Senior U.S. District Judge James Fox ruled on Thursday. MacDonald, a former Green Beret, is serving three life sentences for the stabbing and clubbing deaths of his family in their Fort Bragg, North Carolina, apartment in February 1970. They offered testimony about a now-deceased woman who told witnesses she was in the MacDonald home during the crime and DNA test results of hair found by the bodies that did not belong to Jeffrey MacDonald or any of his family members.

Families urge resumption of adoptions from Congo

In this June 18, 2014 photo provided by Alana Carroll, Canaan, left, and Neema, two Congolese boys who have been adopted by Justin and Alana Carroll of Jefferson City, Tenn., pose for a photo in Kinshasa, Congo. The boys have been unable to travel to the United States because the Congolese government stopped issuing exit permits in September 2013 and says it won't resume issuing them until a new adoption law is enacted. Hanging behind the boys are drawings of airplanes that they made; they've been obsessed with planes since learning that's how they will be united with their American parents.

Kansas top court overturns death sentences in 'Wichita Massacre'

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 01:23
The Kansas Supreme Court on Friday overturned death sentences for two brothers convicted in the 2000 execution-style murder of four people on a snowy soccer field in Wichita, ruling that the trial judge erred in refusing to conduct separate penalty phases for the two men. Jonathan and Reginald Carr were sentenced to death in 2002. Their December 2000 crime spree, known as the Wichita Massacre, included the kidnapping of three men and two women in a home invasion that included rape and sexual humiliation. The court affirmed some of the convictions against the two brothers, including murder, but vacated the death penalty for both of them, sending the case back to district court for new sentencing.

Landlords say San Francisco anti-eviction law unconstitutional

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 01:23
By Jennifer Baires SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - (This story corrects to show family lives in duplex but wants to take possession of entire building in paragraph four) A San Francisco law requiring landlords to pay large sums of money to tenants before removing a property from the rental market was challenged in federal court on Thursday amid rising tensions between renters and landlords in the expensive city. The lawsuit filed by Pacific Legal Foundation on behalf of Daniel and Maria Levin, a married couple who own a two-unit house in San Francisco, argues that the new ordinance is unconstitutional because it violates the homeowners’ privacy and property rights. “The Levins just don’t want to be landlords anymore,” J. David Breemer, lead attorney on the case, said.

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 01:03

A judge has recommended the exoneration of a Phillips who prosecutors said did not commit a 1990 rape based on recent DNA testing. Phillips, 57, who suffers from sickle cell anemia and did little to lobby for his exoneration during his 12 years in prison or the 14 since his release, said he never imagined he would live to see his name cleared. (AP Photo)DALLAS (AP) — A Dallas man who prosecutors say did not commit a 1990 rape for which he served 12 years in prison should be exonerated based on recent DNA testing he did not request, a judge recommended Friday.
