ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Officials say George Zimmerman helped rescue four people from an overturned vehicle last week, just days after he was cleared of all charges in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin.
Seminole County Sheriff's spokeswoman Kim Cannaday said in a statement Monday that deputies responding to the wreck found Zimmerman and another man had already helped the couple and their two children out of the flipped SUV.
The sheriff's office report says Zimmerman spoke with a deputy at the scene and then left. Zimmerman did not see the crash happen.
Zimmerman had been charged with second-degree murder in the 17-year-old's death. His acquittal prompted rallies nationwide calling for a civil rights probe, and the case has sparked debate about race and self-defense laws.
MARICOPA, Ariz. (AP) - An Iraqi man charged with detonating a homemade explosive device outside a federal building in Arizona now faces additional charges, including first-degree murder in a previous killing.
Authorities say Abdullatif Ali Aldosary is charged with murder, aggravated assault, and two firearms counts in the Nov. 27, 2012, killing of 26-year-old Orlando Requena at a grain facility in Maricopa, about 35 miles south of Phoenix.
Authorities say the suspect knew the victim, but they declined to discuss a motive.
Aldosary also faces 18 counts, including 14 attempted murder charges, in the Nov. 30 bombing outside an Arizona Social Security Administration building. No one was injured in the blast.
Aldosary initially faced five federal counts to which he pleaded not guilty. It wasn't clear if Aldosary had an attorney for the state charges.
ST. JOSEPH, Mo. (AP) - Officials at a northwest Missouri lake are working to prevent another big fish kill.
One of two pumps was activated at Lake Contrary in Buchanan County last week. Joan Bennett, president of the Lake Contrary Development Association, says the pump will supply up to 2,000 gallons of water a minute to the lake. The pumps will cool the water and provide enough oxygen to try and prevent any more fish kills.
The St. Joseph News Press reports dead fish already have been discovered at the lake this summer. An estimated 20,000 fish died last August. And hundreds of thousands of fish died at the lake in 2003.
The pump costs $1,500 a month. The lake plans to run only one of the pumps for now to save money.
