Former Penn State coach Sandusky denied new child sex abuse trial
Former Penn State coach Sandusky denied new child sex abuse trialBy David DeKok HARRISBURG, Pa. (Reuters) - A Pennsylvania judge on Wednesday denied a request by former Penn State University football coach Jerry Sandusky for a new trial on charges that he sexually assaulted pre-teen and teenaged boys for 15 years. Sandusky, 73, was convicted in 2012 of exploiting his position in the top-flight football program to sexually assault 10 boys. Centre County Court of Common Pleas visiting Judge John Foradora struck down all Sandusky's claims of sub-par legal work by his trial attorney, Joseph Amendola, and two other lawyers.

Texas house fire kills mother, five children in 'horrific scene'Firefighters responded to an alarm shortly after midnight and discovered the bodies as they put out the blaze, which destroyed the home, Davis said. "Tough situation, really a horrific scene here and just so sad that we’re dealing with six victims at a house fire," Davis told Beaumont television station KFDM shortly after the fire had been put out. The identities of the mother and the children, who ranged in age from 3 to 11 and included a set of 4-year-old twins, were being withheld pending notification of other family members, he said.

Las Vegas hotel guard says he heard drilling, then hail of bullets
Las Vegas hotel guard says he heard drilling, then hail of bulletsMandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos, the first person to confront gunman Stephen Paddock, gave "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" his first public account of how he responded to the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Contradictory statements from police and the hotel about what time Campos arrived at Paddock's room have raised questions about the police response.
