Jury selection starts Monday in federal court in Albany in the trial of former Peanut Company of America owner Stewart Parnell; his brother and food broker, Michael Parnell; and the peanut plant's quality control manager, Mary Wilkerson.
The Parnell brothers and Wilkerson were indicted last year on 76 criminal counts that accused them of shipping tainted peanuts to industrial food customers and covering up lab tests that showed some batches of nuts tested positive for salmonella.
Frederick Mayor Randy McClement is highlighting transportation and development in his annual State of the City address.
McClement is making his speech Monday night with the city's downtown MARC station as a backdrop. The station is at one end of a bicycle route his administration is developing to encourage rail commuters to pedal to the train stop.
The station sits along an unfinished section of the Carroll Creek Linear Park that McClement also hopes to see developed during his second term.
The Republican mayor was re-elected last year to serve another four years.
Exports are down this year because of higher natural gas prices and a colder-than-average winter at home.
When measuring progress on global warming, countries count only pollution from burning fossil fuels.
Analyses suggest U. S. exports could be reducing by half or wiping out completely the pollution savings in the U. S.
West Texas police say a teenager has died and a person has been injured in a stabbing near Abilene Christian University.
Abilene Police Chief Stan Standridge says a 19-year-old was killed early Sunday morning at a housing complex near the university. He says another man was stabbed and is expected to recover.
Police did not release the men's names or say if they were students.
Standridge says police have identified a suspect and have obtained a capital murder warrant.
The prolonged — some say "botched" — execution of double murderer Joseph Rudolph Wood last week in Arizona fanned the flames of the unending debate over whether vicious killers should suffer as they die for their crimes.
In January, an Ohio inmate snorted and gasped for nearly a half hour before dying; in Oklahoma, a man died of a heart attack minutes after prison officials halted his execution because the drugs weren't being administered properly.
Wood died by lethal injection Wednesday for the August 1989 slayings of his estranged girlfriend and her father.
When it had continued for more than an hour, the condemned man's lawyers made a desperate appeal to state and federal courts to halt the execution.
McCarthy was convicted of killing her 71-year-old neighbor in 1997 during a robbery of the retired psychology professor's home in Lancaster, Texas.
Police say the former nursing home therapist beat Booth with a candelabra, stabbed her with a butcher knife, then cut off the elderly woman's finger to steal her wedding ring.
McCarthy, who was linked to two other slayings, became Texas' 500th execution since capital punishment resumed there in 1982.
In June 1993, his 14-year-old daughter Jennifer and Elizabeth Pena, 16, were rushing to make curfew on their way home from a party when they took a shortcut through a Houston neighborhood and stumbled into a gang initiation.
What followed was what one prosecutor called a "feeding frenzy" of rape, torture and murder.
The way that he killed my sister, and I think for someone just to get a needle put in their arm and be able to go to sleep and go to the next world, or whatever, is about as easy as it gets, you know?
