2 killed, 1 hurt in Ky. college shooting


Two people were shot and killed and a teenager wounded Tuesday in the parking lot of an eastern Kentucky community college, authorities said.

A police dispatcher told The Associated Press the shooting happened about 5:30 p.m. at Hazard Community & Technical College in Hazard, Ky. The dispatcher, who was not authorized to release information, spoke on condition of anonymity.

Two people showed up at the Kentucky State Police post in Hazard and said they were involved in the shooting, police spokesman Tony Watts said. State police held the two until Hazard police came and took them into custody, he said.

Police: Son hoped to resurrect father


A man who was arrested in the theft of his father’s corpse from a Detroit cemetery stored the body in a freezer after a weekend funeral, hoping for it to be miraculously resurrected, police said Tuesday.

French to triple size of force in Mali


After a punishing bombing campaign failed to halt the advance of al-Qaida-linked fighters, France pledged Tuesday to triple the size of its force in Mali, sending in hundreds more troops as it prepared for a land assault to dislodge the militants occupying the northern half of the country.

The move reversed France’s earlier insistence on providing only aerial and logistical support for a military intervention led by African ground troops.

Va. inmate who sought death to be executed


When Robert Gleason Jr. walks into Virginia’s death chamber tonight and is strapped into the rarely used electric chair, it will mark the end of a twisted quest to speed his own death.

Gleason says it’s not because he wants to die, but rather because he knows he will kill again if he’s not executed. He already was serving life in prison when he killed his cellmate then vowed to continue killing unless he was put to death. When the system wasn’t moving fast enough, he strangled another inmate and warned that the body count would rise if they didn’t heed his warnings.
