FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The Latest on the case of Ethan Couch, the 18-year-old who used an "affluenza" defense in a fatal 2013 drunken driving wreck in Texas and was recently deported from Mexico (all times local):
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, facing sharp criticism over police shootings of civilians, announced reforms on Friday to address how police and other emergency workers respond to the mentally ill, including new crisis training for officers. Last month, a police officer responding to a call by a father who said his son was threatening him with a baseball bat fired into a home, killing both an emotionally-troubled college student and an innocent bystander. Both the families of Quintonio LeGrier, 19, and Bettie Jones, a 55-year-old mother of five, have sued the city.
The notice of appeal also asks the court to overturn a sentence of death by lethal injection pronounced on Tsarnaev after his conviction last year for his role in an attack that killed three people and injured more than 260 others. In court papers filed with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit in Boston, lawyers asked for a reversal of an order that Tsarnaev, 22, pay more than $101 million to victims of the attack at the finish line of the annual 26.2 mile race at Boston's Copley Square.
