  • Casey Anthony to be free next Wednesday--video extra

    ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Casey Anthony will be freed next week after spending nearly three years in jail on accusations she murdered her 2-year-old daughter, a case that captured the nation's attention and divided many over whether a killer had been acquitted.

    While cleared of charges of killing and abusing her daughter Caylee, Anthony was convicted of lying to investigators and sentenced Thursday to four years. But she was given credit for the time she has already served and her good behavior, and a court official said she would be released Wednesday.

  • Alert: Terrorists look to implant bombs in humans

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Airlines are being warned by the government that terrorists are considering surgically hiding bombs inside humans to evade airport security. And as a result, travelers may find themselves subjected to more scrutiny when flying in the heart of summer vacation season, especially to the U.S. from abroad.

    Bombs-in-the body is not a brand new idea, but recent intelligence indicates a fresh interest in using this method, as people-scanning machines in airports aren't able to detect explosives hidden inside humans. Still, there is no current information that points to a specific plot involving surgically implanted explosives, a U.S. security official said, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss such sensitive matters.

  • Seven year old child hit by car

    A seven-year-old Los Alamos girl was hit by a car as she crossed Central Avenue near Ashley Pond shortly before noon Wednesday.

    The child was transported to Los Alamos Medical Center “alert and conscious,” according to police.

    Deputy Chief Kevin Purtymun said this morning that she was treated and released.

    Following an investigation into the accident, Purtymun said the driver would not be cited.

    “The child wasn’t in the cross walk and stepped out from behind a parked SUV,” he said. “The driver was going slow enough to stop and not make this accident a tragedy.”

  • Las Conchas Wildfire puts stress on wildlife

    Increased black bear, bobcat, cougar and coyote sightings in local neighborhoods have law enforcement officials concerned. The long drought compounded by the Las Conchas Fire, which began June 26, have these animals coming into town looking haggard and hungry.

    Dan Williams of New Mexico Game and Fish in Santa Fe said this morning that, “it’s all about food.”
    Williams explained that the animals have lost much of their habitat and they’re hungry.

    “They’re going to seek out the most available food source and that appears to be people’s trash,” Williams said.

  • Smoke and Fire Flare-Ups Expected

    Many people are on edge as they watch the largest fire in state history burning above Los Alamos. It’s going to take a couple of heavy rains to extinguish the monstrous Las Conchas Fire, which has consumed more than 130,000 acres of forestland since June 26. The blaze is heading in a northwesterly direction and Los Alamos Fire Chief Doug Tucker said that haze, smoke plumes and fire flare-ups will remain visible to residents for days to come
