By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Two men from Maine pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to murder charges in the California shooting death of a homeless man in a Hollywood tourist area, in what police described as a possible drug deal gone awry. Troy McVey, 22, and Coby Kronholm, 21, entered their pleas during a brief appearance in Los Angeles Superior Court where they stood in jail jumpsuits behind a glass partition as McVey's mother watched from the audience. "The suspects aren't talking and so it's speculation, but we believe it may have been a drug deal gone bad and they may have even mistaken the victim for somebody," said Los Angeles police Detective Mark Morgan. The late-night shooting on Jan. 4 at a busy intersection in the Hollywood district of Los Angeles was witnessed by an off-duty officer and caught on surveillance video from multiple businesses.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Obama administration said on Wednesday that more than 7.1 million people have signed up for 2015 healthcare coverage through the federal government's insurance marketplace as of last Friday. The figures, which show more than 400,000 new applicants for the week from Jan. 10 through Jan. 16 alone, do not include enrollees at 14 state-run marketplaces. The administration hopes to have 9.1 million people enrolled in 2015 coverage under the Affordable Care Act nationwide by the end of the year. (Reporting by David Morgan; Editing by Bill Trott)
