    Ex-prof gets life in prison for meeting rampage HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — A former university professor has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for killing three of her colleagues and wounding three others during a faculty meeting. The jury deliberated for about 20 minutes before convicting Amy Bishop on Monday. Amy Bishop, a former professor at the University of Alabama in Hunstville, showed no reaction as the verdict was read. Circuit Judge Alan Mann then imposed the life sentence. Bishop did not speak in court. The Harvard-educated biologist avoided a death sentence by pleading guilty earlier this month to...

    HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Court officials say a former professor has pleaded guilty to fatally shooting three colleagues and wounding three others at a faculty meeting at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. Amy Bishop on Tuesday pleaded guilty to one count of capital murder involving two or more people and three counts of attempted murder. Prosecutors were seeking the death penalty against the Harvard-educated Bishop. Sentencing in the case will be after a Sept. 24 hearing. The former biology professor previously had pleaded innocent by reason of insanity in the February 2010 shooting. Bishop also is charged with killing her...

    A former biology professor accused of killing three colleagues and wounding three others at the University of Alabama in Huntsville has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity in the shooting. Authorities say Bishop pulled out a gun and opened fire during a February 2010 faculty meeting, killing three professors and wounding three colleagues. After the slayings, Bishop also was charged with killing her teenage brother in Massachusetts in a shooting that originally was ruled an accident in 1986.

    Joseph Kennedy III, the son of former congressman Joe Kennedy, is being tipped to launch a political career soon as insiders mull over who the next Kennedy in public life will be. Kennedy, 29, may be interested in the South Shore-Cape Cod House seat currently held by Democratic Congressman Bill Delahunt, who has not yet committed to a tough re-election fight. “Massachusetts – and Capitol Hill – without a Kennedy is like Fenway Park without the Wall,’’ Dan Payne, a Democratic media consultant, referring to the famous Green Monster told the Boston Globe. “They were meant to be together.’’ Others...

    US Representative William Delahunt said yesterday that he is considering retiring from his congressional seat representing the South Shore and Cape Cod, although he portrayed his deliberations as routine and said they are not related to challenges from Republicans who are energized by Scott Brown’s upset victory in last month’s special Senate election.

    If Bill Delahunt had done his job, three Alabama families wouldn’t be in mourning today. Period. If then-Norfolk District Attorney Delahunt, his staff or the police hadn’t been negligent, corrupt or both back in 1986, Amy Bishop would have been prosecuted for killing her brother. Based on what we know now - and what investigators knew then - probably some charge of manslaughter. But at the very least, Bishop probably would have had a felony gun conviction on her record, teaching her a tragic personal lesson. Instead, the political culture of Massachusetts taught her something very different: It’s not what...

    The Braintree Police Department, the Norfolk County Prosecutor and the Massachusetts State Police are trying to get their stories down as to why no charges were filed against Amy Bishop in the 1986 shooting death of her brother.  Although the police file that had been missing for more than 20 years was found among the papers of a retired police investigator, now deceased, the case remains highly controversial.  Shortly after being apprehended in ‘86, Bishop was released without being charged. Congressman William D. Delahunt was the Norfolk DA at the time.  The current holder of the post, William R. Keating, is investigating the entire matter. It is...

    . . . Delahunt’s people have offered one ridiculous excuse after another for his weeklong silence. The congressman, they have said, is traveling in Israel. He was, but it isn’t as though there are no phones there. He doesn’t remember much, they say. Talk to the Braintree police . . . Look, I’ve known Delahunt for years, and I’m not, at this point, reading too much into his actions. But Bishop’s alleged slayings constitute a huge tragedy, and how they happened is a matter of urgent business. There were not just red flags that she was criminally dangerous; there were...

  • Amy Bishop charged with murder for 1986 shooting of her brother

    Amy Bishop has been charged with murder for the 1986 shotgun slaying of her 18-year-old brother in their Braintree home, according to a source directly involved with the inquiry. A Norfolk County grand jury indicted Bishop, 45, on a single count of first-degree murder, the source said. She faces life imprisonment without the possibility of parole if convicted of killing Seth Bishop. The slaying of Seth Bishop was declared an accident by Norfolk County authorities at the time. But questions were raised about the investigation after Bishop, a college professor, was charged in February in a shooting rampage at the...

    HUNTSVILLE, AL. -- A Madison County district judge ruled this morning that accused UAH shooter Amy Bishop should be kept in custody and her case handed over to a grand jury to consider a capital murder charge against her. The ruling by Judge Ruth Ann Hall followed a 25-minute preliminary hearing that featured testimony by Huntsville police investigator Charlie Gray. Gray described the investigation into the Feb. 12 shooting rampage at the University of Alabama in Huntsville that left three dead and three wounded. Bishop, 45, is accused of killing three fellow biology faculty members and shooting three others. She...

    A top Massachusetts Democrat says one of Robert F. Kennedy’s grandsons is considering running for the U.S. House of Representatives. Joseph P. Kennedy III is one of the twin sons of former Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy II. The source, who demanded anonymity to speak about private conversations with the father and son, says the younger Kennedy is considering running if Rep. William Delahunt decides against seeking re-election. Delahunt has been criticized lately for his handling of a 1986 shooting in Braintree by a woman now accused of killing three colleagues at an Alabama university. Delahunt’s district includes Cape Cod, where...
