That's when Angel Rojas, now 21, shot three to five rounds at Hicks. She was struck once in the head and died three days later.

    It began with a crush, police said, and turned into one of the most shocking crimes in Milwaukee's long, violent summer: an 11-year-old girl was sexually assaulted by as many as 20 boys while a 16-year-old girl she was romantically interested in watched and coached her. The 16-year-old and a 15-year-old boy have been charged in juvenile court in the alleged attack, which authorities said took place Monday in a house on the city's north side. The teenage girl's 40-year-old uncle might also be charged, authorities said. The youth's names were not released because of their ages. Investigators are still...

    CARACAS, Venezuela --Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said his country is gaining broad support in its bid for a U.N. Security Council seat, even as the United States tries to persuade governments to vote against Venezuela. Speaking by phone from China on Sunday, Chavez told Venezuelan state television that his government is scoring "big victories" in its effort to obtain a rotating seat on the Security Council. He noted that Chinese President Hu Jintao endorsed Venezuela's campaign on Thursday, and said other countries in areas from the Caribbean to Africa have also pledged their backing. "I am sure that support is...

    Bay Shore High School's Class of 2006 homecoming king admitted in a Suffolk courtroom Friday to taking part in what prosecutors called one of the more horrifying crimes in recent history -- the beating, rape and robbery at gunpoint of a young couple on their first date. Recalling talking with his co-defendants after driving away from the brutal crime, Douglas Payton, 18, said, "We started to laugh about it." Payton pleaded guilty Friday to first-degree rape, first-degree sodomy and first-degree robbery for the Dec. 3 attack in Bay Shore. Newsday is not naming the couple because they were victims of...

    MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. -- A woman who feared she would lose her boyfriend while she recuperated from surgery arranged for her 15-year-old daughter to have sex with him, authorities said.

    A black man who confessed to fatally knifing a White Plains woman because she was white was convicted yesterday of murder as a hate crime. A Westchester jury took just 4 1/2 - including 45 minutes spent re-watching his videotaped confession - to find Phillip Grant guilty of murder and possession of a weapon. "As long as she had blond hair and blue eyes, she had to die," Grant said on the video. Grant, 44, had admitted killing Concetta Russo-Carriero, 56, in the parking garage of the Galleria shopping mall, a block from the courthouse in downtown White Plains. He...

    EPHRATA — A 15-year-old boy was sentenced Monday to more than 26 years in prison for beating and stabbing a playmate to death three years ago, closing one of the most brutal murders ever committed by a juvenile in Washington state. Evan Savoie, of Ephrata, showed no emotion when Grant County Superior Court Judge Ken Jorgensen imposed the maximum sentence. He smiled slightly as he was led away in handcuffs. Savoie was 12 years old when he and a friend were charged with first-degree murder in the Feb. 15, 2003, death of Craig Sorger, a developmentally disabled boy who had...

    President Hugo Chávez warned he could declare the United States ambassador William Brownfield persona non grata and thus expel him from Venezuela if the diplomat continued to walk around Venezuela "as if he owned the country." Chávez' remarks came Sunday during his 252nd weekly radio and TV ¡Aló, Presidente! (Hello, President!), from north central Carabobo state. The Venezuelan ruler mentioned an incident involving Brownfield last April 7th. The US diplomat was visiting a baseball field in Coche, southwest Caracas, to make a donation of sports goods, but pro-government activists insulted him and threw objects at him. Chávez urged Brownfield to...
