SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) — Historians know where Solomon Northup was born, where he lived and where he worked. They know whom he married and how many children he had. They know he played the fiddle and spent 12 years enslaved in the South before being freed.
What historians don't know about the author of "12 Years A Slave" is when and how he died and where he's buried. It's a lingering mystery in the final chapter of the life of the 19th-century free-born African-American whose compelling account of enforced slavery was made into the Oscar-winning film of the same title.
The accolades have sparked new interest in Northup's story, which was little known until recent years even in the upstate New York communities where he spent most of his life.
WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says that if Russian President Vladimir Putin doesn't back down in Crimea, he will face penalties from the West that will hurt the Russian economy and diminish Moscow's influence in the world.
White House senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer also says supporting the new Ukrainian government "in every way possible" is at the top of the Obama's administration's priority list.
But action on $1 billion in loan guarantees to Ukraine is on hold because Congress is on a break now.
Pfeiffer tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that Putin has a choice: "Is he going to continue to further isolate himself, further hurt his economy, further diminish Russian influence in the world, or is he going to do the right thing?"
EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) — An East St. Louis man is jailed on $1 million bond after being accused in a shooting death last month.
The Belleville News-Democrat reports that St. Clair County prosecutors charged 20-year-old Montrell Spencer this week with first-degree murder.
Authorities say 49-year-old Leon Lucas Junior of East St. Louis was killed February 22nd during an altercation.
Spencer was arrested Monday by officers who responded to a home in connection with a reported domestic dispute. Police say that after being arrested on suspicion of domestic battery, investigators learned he was suspected in Lucas' death.
Online court records don't show whether he has an attorney. He has an unlisted home telephone number.
