Death row inmate Robert Pruett is seen in an undated picture released by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice in Huntsville(Reuters) - A Texas court on Tuesday postponed the execution of a man, hours before he was scheduled to die by lethal injection, to allow additional DNA tests on the weapon he is accused of using to kill a prison guard in 1999. The court in Bee County, Texas, granted Robert Pruett, 35, a stay of execution and said in a court order that DNA testing should be completed by May 28, according to court documents. Pruett was already serving a life sentence in the killing of a neighbor at age 15 when he was convicted of stabbing correctional officer Daniel Nagle to death with a shank at a prison near Beeville, Texas, according to court records. The note accused Pruett of breaking prison rules by taking a sack lunch containing a peanut butter and jelly sandwich into a prison recreation area, court records showed.

Amid drought, California's Brown wants big fines for wasting water

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 04/29/2015 - 05:48

California Governor Brown looks on during a news conference at the State Capitol in SacramentoBy Robin Respaut SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Governor Jerry Brown proposed legislation on Tuesday that would impose steep fines for wasting water in drought-parched California. In a meeting with California mayors, Brown said the legislation would allow wholesale and retail water agencies, along with city and county governments, to issue fines of up to $10,000 per violation. Currently, there is a $500 per day maximum, established in drought legislation last year. "As this drought stretches on, we'll continue to do whatever is necessary to help communities save more water." The changes would speed up enforcement and allow local public agencies to deputize staff to issue warnings and citations.
