Oscar Pistorius indicted on murder charge

Monday, 19 August 2013 03:29 Published in National News

   PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) - Oscar Pistorius has been indicted on charges of murder and illegal possession of ammunition for the shooting death of the double-amputee Olympian's girlfriend on Valentine's Day.

   A Pretoria court on Monday set March 3 as the trial date for Pistorius, who says he shot Reeva Steenkamp by mistake, believing she was an intruder in his home. Prosecutors say he killed her after an argument. The prosecution submitted a list of more than 100 witnesses.

   Pistorius was in court for the indictment, and was seen crying and holding hands with his siblings before proceedings started.

   He faces a life sentence with a minimum of 25 years in prison if convicted of premeditated murder.

   

Gov. signs in tougher new IL gun laws

Monday, 19 August 2013 02:03 Published in Local News

   CHICAGO (AP) - Illinois gun owners who fail to report the theft or loss of a weapon will face tougher restrictions under a new law signed by Gov. Pat Quinn.

   The law beefs up background checks and requires firearm thefts or losses to be reported within 72 hours.

   Quinn signed the bill Sunday at a South Side Chicago park where police officer was fatally shot in 2010. The Chicago Democrat says the restrictions are common sense and will help crack down on crime.

   Democrats State Sen. Kwame Raoul and state Rep. Mike Zalewski sponsored the bill.  It's also supported by Chicago Police Chief Garry McCarthy.

   The requirement to report thefts goes into effect immediately. The background check changes start next year.

 

 

   NEW YORK (AP) — Lindsay Lohan says this time it's going to be different.

   In an interview that aired Sunday with Oprah Winfrey, the trouble-prone actress declared that this, her sixth stint in rehab, has put her on a path of recovery.

   Lohan said she's in "a different head space" now and vowed to stay "present and clear-headed and focused."

   "I feel whole again," she told Winfrey, "and I have such a desire to want to keep this feeling and stay this way, and I'm willing to do whatever it takes."

   Lohan, 27, completed her latest court-ordered stay in rehab in July. She must continue therapy into late next year.

   She acknowledged an addiction to alcohol, which "in the past was a gateway to other things for me," but she offered no specifics other than cocaine, which she said she has used no more than 15 times.

   Winfrey asked her what she's on these days. Lohan replied, "Vitamins."

   "You're not on any prescription drugs?" Winfrey pressed.

   "No, no," Lohan insisted, then checked herself: "I take Nexium. Because I have acid reflux."

   Clad in a form-fitting orange dress, Lohan said a comfort level with her past chaotic life had fed her much-reported partying and her brushes with the law. But she added that she takes full blame for her mistakes.

   When Winfrey asked if she can turn her life around this time, Lohan said with no hesitation, "Yeah."

   The interview aired as an episode of "Oprah's Next Chapter" on the Oprah Winfrey Network, which will spotlight Lohan next year in an eight-part docuseries based on her life.

   During the hour, an advertisement appeared for Cliffside Malibu, the rehab facility where Lohan was recently residing. That ad boasted of a treatment program so successful, it's guaranteed.

   Lohan's latest film, "The Canyons," is currently in limited release.
