Police say Claire Ogilvie, 36, attacked Nancy Tramontin, the wife of David Toscano, a member of the Virginia House of Delegates, in their Charlottesville home on Feb. 24 and struck the woman several times in the head.

By Brad Poole TUCSON Ariz. (Reuters) - Federal officials have denied an undocumented immigrant's application to remain in the United States, leaving her to live in sanctuary, and legal limbo, at a southern Arizona church. Rosa Robles Loreto, a homeowner and housekeeper who has lived in Tucson since 1999, took sanctuary at the city's Southside Presbyterian Church on Aug. 7 after an appeal of her deportation case was rejected. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said on Monday it will not close her case nor grant her a stay of deportation, though it does not intend to arrest her. "After conducting a thorough review of Ms. Robles Loreto's immigration case, ICE has decided to exercise prosecutorial discretion by not taking immediate action on (her) removal order," the agency said in a statement.

Human remains discovered on Washington state's Mount St. Helens have been identified as a Japanese hiker who went missing last November while trying to climb to the volcano's summit alone, officials said Tuesday. Yosuke Onishi's remains were found during a search earlier this month near where he was believed to have gone missing, about 7,100 feet (2,164 meter) up the south slope of the 8,300-foot (2,530-meter) summit, the Skamania County Sheriff's Office said. His identity was confirmed by the medical examiner's office in nearby Clark County, which also borders the well-known peak. Onishi had set out Nov. 27 from an area hotel, borrowing snow shoes and telling staff he planned to summit the active volcano on his own.
