By Victoria Cavaliere SEATTLE (Reuters) - The body of a child found on Thursday near a Washington state mobile home park appears to be that of a 6-year-old girl last seen Saturday evening and reported missing when she failed to turn up for dinner the following night, authorities said. Jenise Wright had gone to bed on Saturday in her family home near Bremerton, on the Kitsap Peninsula across the Puget Sound from Seattle, and was not seen by family members the next day, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office. After four days of searching led by local law enforcement, the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office said a child's body had been found in the woods near the Wrights' home on Thursday afternoon and "appears to be that of Jenise." The medical examiner will identify the body, said Kitsap County public communications manager Doug Bear.

No trouble between Virginia ex-governor, wife says corruption trial witness

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/08/2014 - 07:10

Former Virginia Governor Robert McDonnell arrives with his legal team for his trial in RichmondBy Gary Robertson RICHMOND Va. (Reuters) - Former Virginia Governor Robert McDonnell and his wife Maureen had a loving relationship and there was no trouble between them, a prosecution witness in the couple's federal corruption trial testified on Thursday. The testimony by Sarah Scarbrough, former director of the governor's mansion, countered defense arguments that the McDonnells' marriage was so frayed that they could not have conspired to take $165,000 in loans and gifts from a Virginia businessman. Scarbrough, a friend of one of the McDonnell's daughters, described the couple's relationship as "loving" and said they frequently kissed and hugged in public. The McDonnells face 14 counts of corruption and bribery for allegedly accepting the gifts and loans from businessman Jonnie Williams Sr. in exchange for supporting his former company, a dietary supplement maker now known as Rock Creek Pharmaceuticals Inc. Scarbrough testified that Maureen McDonnell was angry when she learned that Scarbrough was keeping a record of gifts to the first lady.

Normally sunny Hawaii braces for hurricane double punch

The U.S. Navy Sea based X Band radar leaves Pearl Harbor as a hurricane and a tropical storm approach the Hawaiian islands, in HonoluluBy Malia Mattoch McManus HONOLULU (Reuters) - Hawaii braced for a one-two punch from a pair of major storms barreling toward the archipelago on Thursday, with Hurricane Iselle leading the way with high winds and heavy surf as Hurricane Julio gathered steam behind it, U.S. officials said. Iselle, a Category 1 hurricane with maximum winds of 75 miles per hour (120 kph) , was about 175 miles (280 km) east of the Big Island by noon local time and was forecast to make landfall on Thursday night before passing south of the state's smaller islands on Friday. As residents and tourists alike braced for Iselle to make landfall, Hurricane Julio was gaining momentum further east, and was expected to pass near Hawaii's islands by late Saturday or early Sunday, said Ray Tanabe, acting director of the National Weather Service in the Pacific region. The rare threat of back-to-back hurricanes sent Hawaii residents scrambling to stock up on supplies as state officials warned of the potential for flash floods, mudslides and power outages in the normally calm tourist haven.
