Son of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy arrested in Utah

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 01/29/2015 - 16:35
(Reuters) - The son of a Nevada rancher who was at the center of an armed stand-off with federal agents in a dispute over cattle grazing rights last year has been arrested in Utah, officials said. Ryan Bundy, 42, was taken into custody by sheriff's deputies serving an arrest warrant while he was at the Iron County Justice Court for a separate case on Tuesday, the Iron County Sheriff's Office said in a statement. The Bundy family ranch in Bunkerville, Nevada some 80 miles (129 km) northeast of Las Vegas, was the site of an armed protest against the U.S. Bureau of Land Management last April. The stand-off gained nationwide attention as the agency sought to seize cattle because elder Bundy, Cliven Bundy, refused to pay grazing fees.

FACT CHECK: Both sides in Keystone XL debate bend facts

Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., speaks during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington where they discussed their plan to introduce legislation to approve the Keystone XL pipeline project. Supporters of the Keystone XL pipeline say the privately-funded, $8 billion project is a critically needed piece of infrastructure that will create thousands of jobs and make the U.S. dependent on oil from friends, rather than foes. Critics claim it will be disastrous for the pollution blamed for global warming and put communities along its 1,179-mile route at risk for an environmentally-damaging spill, all for oil and products that will be exported anyway.

Seattle police officer to be reviewed for arrest of innocent black man

Seattle's police chief on Wednesday ordered a review of an officer who wrongly arrested an elderly black man last summer, an incident for which the department apologized a day earlier. The move comes amid simmering tension in the United States over police treatment of African-Americans, sparked in large part by police killings of unarmed black men in Missouri and New York City last year. Seattle Police Chief Kathleen O'Toole ordered the probe, which would also review measures in place to monitor the officer, for the July 9, 2014 arrest and a separate incident around the same time, she said in a statement.

Montana bride has no grounds to appeal murder conviction: prosecutors

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 01/29/2015 - 13:12
Federal prosecutors on Wednesday said a Montana bride who admitted pushing her new husband off a cliff at Glacier National Park has no grounds to appeal her murder conviction after lying to officials and using trickery in a bid to conceal her crime. Jordan Graham pleaded guilty in December 2013 to second-degree murder in the July 7 death of Cody Johnson, 25, her husband of eight days in a case that garnered international headlines. The former nanny was sentenced last March to 30 years in prison by a U.S. judge after he rejected her request to withdraw the guilty plea that came as part of a deal with prosecutors that saw them dismiss a first-degree murder charge. Graham last October appealed her conviction, arguing prosecutors engaged in misconduct by publicly labeling her a sociopath, distorted facts and acted in a vindictive manner toward her.
