Some Missouri lawmakers want to shield lodging websites such as Airbnb from local ordinances that could regulate the services out of business in the state.

A federal jury in South Florida still doesn't have a verdict after two days of deliberations in the Medicare fraud trial of a prominent eye doctor, who separately is accused of bribing a U. S. senator.

Four Nebraska beer stores that sell millions of cans annually near South Dakota's Pine Ridge Indian Reservation may have to close, at least temporarily, while a case against them works its way through the courts.
The stores in Whiteclay scored a legal victory Thursday when a judge overturned a state commission's decision not to renew their liquor licenses.

Self-described "mountain man" Don Nichols was granted parole Thursday after serving nearly 32 years in the Montana State Prison for kidnapping a world class athlete out on a training run in 1984 and killing her would-be rescuer — a story that drew widespread media coverage and was the subject of a made-for-TV movie.
Nichols was sentenced to 85 years in prison for kidnapping biathlete Kari Swenson in the mountains near Big Sky and killing Alan Goldstein, a friend helping to search for Swenson when she failed to return home from her run.
Swenson, who was 22, said she was chained up during her ordeal and spotted her would-be rescuers before her abductors did — yelling at them to leave because Nichols had threatened to shoot anyone who tried to help her.
Board members recognized Nichols' clean record in his more than 30 years in prison and his completion of educational programs, including anger management and life skills.
The case was the subject of a 1987 made-for-TV movie "The Abduction of Kari Swenson," starring Tracy Pollan, and was featured in a February episode of Investigation Discovery's TV show "Your Worst Nightmare."
