    IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The mother's boyfriend was immediately a suspect when a 5-year-old girl was found dead in an Iowa river in 2005, but it took investigators seven years to build a strong enough case to bring charges, authorities said Friday.

Within hours, he hid with a neighbor a computer hard drive containing a cache of disturbing child pornography involving young girls. He head-butted a wall and screamed at police...

    Former schoolteacher Evelyn Miller doesn't plan to retire from the anti-illegal immigration movement any time soon. She's too busy organizing petitions, blasting e-mails, faxes and letters, and threatening politicians who are up for re-election. The 76-year-old member of the California Coalition for Immigration Reform says she is driven by her belief that those in the country illegally are taking jobs and taxpayer services from Americans. "We're soldiers in the foxhole," Miller said from her dining room in Irvine, which doubles as a home office
