A pair of teenagers are facing charges after prosecutors say they raped an East St. Louis High School student.
The Belleville News Democrat reports that an 18-year-old is charged with criminal sexual assault, while a 16-year-old suspect is facing charges in juvenile court. The victim told police that the assault happened at school in a closet.
The 18-year-old suspect is held on a $100,000 bond.
WEST READING, Pa. (AP) — Thousands of Christmas carolers are gathered to sing outside the home of a terminally ill Pennsylvania girl.
The singers are fulfilling one of 8-year-old Delaney Brown's wishes: a huge holiday sing-along outside her West Reading home. On her "Team Laney" Facebook page, a picture of Delaney giving two thumbs up was accompanied by the text, "I can hear you now!!! Love you!"
Delaney was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia in May. Her family says earlier this week doctors gave her only days to live.
Supporters have been trying to fulfill a number of Delaney's wishes. She video chatted with singer Taylor Swift on Friday, her eighth birthday.
