Ex-New Jersey pharmacist gets more than six years in prison for trying to make ricin

Yahoo! National News - 5 hours 3 min ago
(Reuters) - A former New Jersey pharmacist has been sentenced to 6-1/2 years in prison for "attempting to weaponize" the deadly toxins ricin and abrin and for possessing equipment for making illegal narcotics, the U.S. Justice Department said on Friday. Jordan Gonzalez, 34, pleaded guilty in May 2014 in federal court in New Jersey. In addition to the prison term "for attempting to weaponize the lethal toxins" and possessing a prohibited flask with the intention of using it to produce illegal narcotics, U.S. District Judge Mary Cooper sentenced Gonzalez to five years of supervised release, the Justice Department said in a statement. Gonzalez was arrested in November 2013 after law enforcement officials tracked several suspicious deliveries to his New York City apartment, including a kilogram of a toxic and explosive compound, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has said.

Yahoo! National News - 5 hours 21 min ago
By Marice Richter DALLAS (Reuters) - The decaying pine coffin in which Lee Harvey Oswald was buried 51 years ago rightfully belongs to the brother of President John F. Kennedy's presumed assassin, a Texas judge ruled on Friday. Oswald's body was exhumed in 1981 and his original casket was discarded when he was reburied.

"Digging someone up and selling a used coffin is weird at best and disgusting at worst," said Robert Oswald's attorney, Gant Grimes.
