By Mary Wisniewski CHICAGO (Reuters) - Barack Obama's presidential library and museum will be built in his hometown of Chicago, the Obama Foundation announced on Tuesday.

It has not decided on the facility's exact location but it is expected to be in one of two parks near the University of Chicago's main campus.

By Joseph Ax NEW YORK (Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Tuesday appeared sharply divided on whether to reinstate the conviction of New York's so-called "cannibal cop," who was found guilty of plotting to kidnap and devour women and then set free when a judge overturned the jury's verdict. Former New York City police officer Gilberto Valle was convicted in March 2013, based largely on his exchanges with others on a dark fetish website about his desire to torture and kill several women he knew, including his wife. The office of Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara on Tuesday urged the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to send Valle back to prison, arguing that he took other steps such as researching chloroform recipes.
By Barbara Liston ORLANDO, Fla. (Reuters) - Central Florida police investigating a roadway shooting involving George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of murdering an unarmed black teenager in 2013, said on Tuesday they have recovered three handguns. No charges have been filed so far in the shooting, which took place on Monday in Lake Mary, Florida, a suburb of Orlando. Zimmerman was only slightly injured by flying glass after he was shot at in his car by Matthew Apperson, police said. The two men were involved in a previous roadside dispute in September 2014 when Apperson accused Zimmerman of threatening to kill him but declined to press charges.
