    EDMONTON — Alberta mom Allyson McConnell will be deported back to her native Australia on Monday despite pending appeals by Alberta Justice for her to face murder charges in the 2010 drowning deaths of her two young boys. The 34-year-old Millet mom is being returned home after completing a 10-month sentence at the Alberta Hospital Thursday for the manslaughter of her 10-month-old son Jayden and two-year-old son Connor. ...During the hearing, defence lawyer Peter Royal didn’t argue the custody ruling as McConnell is mere days away from leaving Canada. “She’s been fully co-operative and compliant throughout and that remains the...

    The Virginia House and Senate voted Wednesday to ban abortion coverage in insurance plans sold through the health care exchange that will be set up in compliance with the Affordable Care Act, or "Obamacare." The amendment was proposed by the state's governor, Bob McDonnell. Senate Democrats were hoping to block the measure, but failed when two Democrats joined Republicans to move the amendment forward, according to NBC Washington. The state had already passed a similar amendment in 2011 but a new amendment was necessary because Virginia opted to let the federal government set up the exchange rather than set up...

    In the wake of the tragic murders of two prosecutors, and one's spouse, in Kaufman County, Texas, county courthouses across Texas are promising beefed up security. While these plans will certainly include more armed guards, the District Attorney in Dallas County is advising its prosecutors to take their own steps for personal protection. “We encourage our prosecutors to have a security handgun license, as long as they do it within the letter of the law,” a DA spokeswoman told local CBS News. Mike McLelland, the murdered DA of Kaufman County himself carried a firearm with him when he was outside...

    Former Weather Underground radical Kathy Boudin — who spent 22 years in prison for an armored-car robbery that killed two cops and a Brinks guard — now holds a prestigious adjunct professorship at Columbia University’s School of Social Work, The Post has learned. Boudin, 69, this year won another academic laurel — being named the Sheinberg Scholar-in-Residence at NYU Law School, where last month she gave a lecture on “the politics of parole and re-entry.” Of the hundreds of students Boudin has taught, Yoshioka said, just three have expressed qualms about her criminal background,

    The man suspected of killing Colorado's prisons chief was still supposed to be behind bars. But because of a clerical error, Evan Ebel was let out of prison in January -- four years early. Authorities suspect he went on to kill Tom Clements, who led the state's prison system, last month. They have also said there is a "strong connection" between that killing and the murder of Nathan Leon, a pizza delivery driver who was found dead in suburban Golden, Colorado.

    KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) - An Afghan teenager killed an American soldier in eastern Afghanistan by stabbing him in the neck while he played with a group of local children, officials said Monday. The killing comes as the monthly U.S. death toll rose sharply in March to 14 with the start of the spring fighting season when the Taliban and other insurgents take advantage of improved weather to step up attacks. Sgt. Michael Cable, 26, was guarding Afghan and U.S. officials meeting in a province near the border with Pakistan when the stabbing occurred last Wednesday, two senior U.S. officials said....

    A man who has spent more than four decades in prison for a Tucson hotel fire that killed 29 people, including some who jumped from windows to escape the searing heat, is expected to be released Tuesday as part of a deal with prosecutors. Louis Cuen Taylor of Tucson was convicted of murder as a teen but has maintained his innocence in the December 1970 fire at the Pioneer Hotel. The fire came during a Christmas party for employees of an aircraft company and left many guests trapped in their rooms. The building had no sprinkler system, exits were locked...

    Being one of the living dead would be a big advantage if you're charged with murder. And you could probably trash your neighbor's property and not be successfully sued. Ryan Davidson, a lawyer who also blogs about "superheroes, supervillains, and the law" at Law and the Multiverse, tells The Huffington Post that "if zombies are effectively unconscious, then they would be incapable of performing voluntary actions and thus immune to criminal liability (or civil liability, for that matter)." He'll be discussing that conclusion and "various legal aspects of being a zombie" on Friday at the WonderCon convention in Anaheim, Calif....

    BRUNSWICK, Ga. - The mother and sister of a 17-year-old accused of killing a 1-year-old boy last week were not granted bond at their first appearances in court Friday afternoon. Karimah and Sabrina Elkins, 36 and 19 respectively, are charged with trying to dispose of the gun investigators believe De'Marquise Elkins (pictured below on right) used to kill 13-month-old Antonio Santiago. Police said the women disposed of the gun in a saltwater pond about two miles away from the killing. The judge said no bond was granted because of their past history, and they will have to wait for a...

    Murder was not ruled out today after an inquest heard that exiled Russian Boris Berezovsky was found lying in his bathroom with a ligature around his neck. A piece of the same material around his throat was tied on to the shower rail above him, indicating he apparently hanged from the rail. But police told a coroner they still cannot rule out murder. Det Insp Mark Bissell said: “The results of the postmortem found that the cause of death was consistent with hanging. "The pathologist has found nothing to indicate a sign of struggle or third party involvement.” He added...

    Brasilia, Mar 28, 2013, Reuters: A Brazilian doctor who was charged with killing seven patients to free up beds at a hospital intensive care unit may have been responsible for as many as 300 deaths, according to a Health Ministry investigator. Prosecutors said Dr Virginia Soares de Souza and her medical team administered muscle relaxing drugs to patients, then reduced their oxygen supply, causing them to die of asphyxia at the Evangelical Hospital in the southern city of Curitiba. De Souza, a 56-year-old widow, was arrested last month and charged with seven counts of aggravated first degree murder.
