Yahoo! National News - Sat, 02/07/2015 - 03:18
By Heide Brandes OKLAHOMA CITY (Reuters) - A 17-year-old Oklahoma man originally charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of an Australian athlete has been charged as an accessory to first-degree murder, court records released on Friday said. James Edwards Jr. had his first-degree murder charge dismissed in exchange for his cooperation with the prosecution of two teenagers charged with fatally shooting Melbourne resident Christopher Lane as he was jogging in south Oklahoma, court records showed. He was attending East Central University in Ada on a baseball scholarship. In a preliminary hearing, Edwards implicated Michael Jones, 19 and Chancey Luna, 17, for the killing.

Army clears way for Purple Hearts for Fort Hood shootings

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 02/07/2015 - 03:17
By Jim Forsyth SAN ANTONIO (Reuters) - The U.S. Army will make military personnel injured in the 2009 shooting attack at the Fort Hood base in central Texas eligible for the Purple Heart and civilians injured eligible for the Medal for Defense of Freedom, military officials said on Friday. Lawyers for 40 military personnel and civilians killed or wounded in the attack have petitioned to have the incident be declared an act of terrorism, which would open the door for the medals and allow them to receive certain benefits. "The Purple Heart's strict eligibility criteria had prevented us from awarding it to victims of the horrific attack at Fort Hood," Secretary of the Army John McHugh said.  "Now that Congress has changed the criteria, we believe there is sufficient reason to allow these men and women to be awarded and recognized with either the Purple Heart or, in the case of civilians, the Defense of Freedom medal." Then Army Major Nidal Hasan, an American-born Muslim, opened fire on unarmed soldiers preparing for deployment on Nov. 5, 2009, killing 13 people and wounding 32 others in what he later called retaliation for U.S. wars in the Muslim world.
