NEW YORK (AP) — New York City authorities say a fire at a Bronx apartment building that killed three boys may have been started by candles after electricity was cut.

Fire officials say Friday's fire started in a second-floor apartment of a six-story building just blocks from Yankee Stadium. Five-year-old Elijah Artis, 2-year-old Jeremiah Artis and 4-month-old Michael Turner were pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police say their 25-year-old mother and her two other children, a, 4-year-old girl and 4-month-old girl, are stable.

Fire marshals are still investigating the blaze, but authorities said Saturday she had been using candles to light the home. Con Edison says the power was cut because of unpaid bills.

The building is about 10 blocks from the site of a 2007 fire that killed 10 people, including 8 children.

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - Three people convicted of murder in deadly crashes want New York's highest court to throw out their convictions, arguing they were too intoxicated to know the threat to others.

The Court of Appeals heard arguments Tuesday from the attorneys for Martin Heidgen, Taliyah Taylor and Franklin McPherson.

Heidgen killed a limousine driver and a 7-year-old passenger in a wrong-way crash on Long Island's Meadowbrook State Parkway in 2005. His blood alcohol content was 0.28 percent.

Taylor sped 80 mph down a Staten Island street without headlights, ran a red light and killed a pedestrian. She had taken Ecstasy, smoked marijuana and drank beer.

McPherson drove the wrong way on Long Island's Southern State Parkway in 2007 and killed another driver. His BAC was 0.19 percent.

Rulings are expected next month.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon plans to head to New York to meet with business leaders and talk about disaster response efforts at an event sponsored by the Clinton Global Initiative.

Nixon is to participate Tuesday evening in a dinner discussion panel about lessons from recent disasters. During his five years as governor, Nixon has dealt with the deadly Joplin tornado as well widespread flooding, a blizzard and drought.

Nixon is to leave Sunday for New York and return three days later.

The governor's office says he also will meet with the leaders of companies that have a presence in Missouri, including IBM, Honeywell, Kawasaki, MasterCard International and Unilever.

   NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Yankees paid tribute to victims of the Boston Marathon bombings by playing the Fenway Park favorite "Sweet Caroline" at Yankee Stadium on Tuesday night.

   Other teams around the majors did the same. The popular sing-along song has been featured at Boston Red Sox home games since 2002.

   The Yankees honored Boston, home of their longtime rivals, by playing the Neil Diamond hit over the public-address system after the third inning against Arizona. Yankees fans sang along, and some people in the crowd wore Red Sox hats and jerseys.

   "Thank you NY Yankees for playing 'Sweet Caroline' for the people of Boston," Diamond wrote on his Twitter page. "You scored a home run in my heart. With respect, Neil (hashtag)OneBoston."

   A ribbon was shown on the scoreboard displaying the insignia of the Red Sox and Yankees and the words: "New York stands with Boston ... Pray for Boston."

   There also was a pregame moment of silence. A message that read "United We Stand" showing the Red Sox and Yankees logos was posted on an electronic board atop the ballpark.

   Earlier in the day, Yankees manager Joe Girardi said it was time to "put the baseball teams aside" and recognize "we're all behind the people in Boston."

   "Sweet Caroline" also was played at Marlins Park, Dodger Stadium and in Cleveland, where the Red Sox beat the Indians 7-2.

   "That was a very classy touch," said Indians skipper Terry Francona, who managed the Red Sox for eight years.

NEW YORK (AP) - Police are searching for the driver of a BMW and a passenger who fled the scene of a Brooklyn accident that killed a pregnant woman and her husband on their way to a hospital. Their baby boy survived.

ABC News reports:


Police say the driver of the BMW slammed into the car carrying Nachman and Raizy Glauber, both 21, at an intersection in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn early Sunday.

Their fellow Orthodox Jews gathered on the street Sunday afternoon for their funerals. Afterward, the cars carrying the bodies left and headed to another service in Monsey, N.Y., where Nachman Glauber grew up.

BOSTON (AP) - Schools across New England have closed and thousands of flights have been scratched as the Northeast hunkers down for a storm poised to dump up to 2 feet of snow.

The snow is expected to start this morning, with the heaviest amounts falling at night and into Saturday. Wind gusts could reach 75 mph. Widespread power failures were feared, along with flooding in coastal areas still recovering from Superstorm Sandy in October.

Boston could get more than 2 feet of snow, while New York City was expecting 10 to 14 inches. To the south, Philadelphia was looking at a possible 4 to 6 inches.

Amtrak says its Northeast trains will stop running this afternoon.

In New England, it could prove to be among the top 10 snowstorms in history.
