Female DNA found on bomb components in Boston Marathon probe, source says

Female DNA was found on bomb components used in the attack this month on the Boston Marathon, a source familiar with the investigation confirmed to Fox News, though the source cautioned that it is too early to draw hard conclusions from that evidence. “No one should expect that the investigation is over,” the source told Fox News in confirming the development first reported by the Wall Street Journal, adding that it is just one piece of evidence that investigators are looking at. The revelation about female DNA came on the same day that the FBI went inside the Rhode Island home of bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev’s widow’s parents, and the nearby family of a man identified as his mysterious mentor hired a family spokesman to keep the media at bay. “We are there as part of our ongoing investigation, but we aren’t permitted to discuss specific aspects of our case,” an FBI official said outside the suburban Providence home where Katherine Russell and her 3-year-old daughter are staying. Authorities suspect Tsarnaev and his younger brother dropped, then detonated two bombs near the finish line of the April 15 marathon, killing three and injuring more than 260. Continue Reading →

Lawyers hint at possible insanity plea for Holmes

Attorneys for the Colorado theater shooting suspect suggest in a court filing that they might be considering a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity over their client’s objections. The lawyers dropped that hint in papers filed on Monday. Legal experts think James Holmes’ best chance of avoiding execution would be through an insanity defense. But defense lawyers said they can’t advise Holmes to enter that plea because of unresolved legal issues that need to be settled by the judge. They did note that state law allows an insanity plea to be entered over a defendant’s objection but did not say they would go that route. Continue Reading →

Pa. sheriff heading to trial on threat charges

A judge says a western Pennsylvania sheriff accused of threatening to cut a political campaign worker’s hands off and shoot an online news reporter should go to trial. Judge Michael L. Gerheim heard nearly five hours of testimony Monday before agreeing most of the 11 charges against Beaver County Sheriff George David should go to trial. A grand jury report says David delivered expletive-fueled rants and uttered a racial slur to his victims. It says he threatened to cut off and eat a campaign volunteer’s hands. David denies the charges and remains in office because county officials are powerless to remove him and state legislators haven’t tried to. He was arrested last month on charges including terroristic threats, witness intimidation and obstructing an investigation. Continue Reading →

Plane crashes, a second belly lands in southern California

A small airplane crashed in mountainous terrain in Southern California on Monday, about the same time a second plane made an emergency landing on a nearby golf course. Three people onboard the plane that landed on its belly on the golf course in Westlake Village had minor injuries, while rescuers searched a rugged ridgeline for survivors from the crash. The emergency landing and the crash “appear to be connected,” said Steve Whitmore, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. He could not provide further details. Firefighters responding to a report of a small wildfire spotted aircraft debris on the charred site. Continue Reading →
