Death of Detroit-area soccer referee ruled a homicide

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/04/2014 - 05:16
(Reuters) - The death of a soccer referee who was punched by a player during a game over the weekend in a Detroit suburb was ruled a homicide on Thursday, a step that could lead to more severe charges against the man accused of hitting him. John Bieniewicz, 44, a long time soccer referee licensed for games at all levels, died on Tuesday from blunt force trauma to the neck, said Mary Mazur, spokeswoman for the Wayne County medical examiner. The autopsy was conducted Thursday and Bieniewicz's death ruled a homicide, although the full report has not yet been written, Mazur said. The player accused of striking the referee, Bassel Abdul-Amir Saad, 36, was charged on Monday with assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder by Wayne County prosecutors and his bond was set at $500,000.

Texas Governor Rick Perry attends the second Annual Champions of Jewish Values International Awards Gala in New YorkBy Jon Herskovitz AUSTIN Texas (Reuters) - Texas Governor Rick Perry and a key U.S. lawmaker renewed Republican calls on Thursday for National Guard troops to be sent to the U.S.-Mexico border to help stem a surge of Central American nationals entering the United States illegally. Perry addressed members of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Homeland Security at a field hearing at McAllen, Texas, in the Rio Grande Valley, the region hardest hit by the thousands of children and families who have streamed to the border in recent months. He said Texas expects to spend an extra $1.3 million a week through the end of the year to beef up law-enforcement efforts to deal with the crisis, on top of $500 million that he said Texas has spent since 2005 to help secure the border.
