    A military court in the Kiryat army complex in Tel Aviv handed down a guilty verdict to Sgt. Elor Azariya Wednesday morning.

    The pastor of a central New York church where two brothers were beaten during a 14-hour "counseling session" pleaded guilty Friday to manslaughter and assault. Three other members of the Word of Life Christian Church in New Hartford agreed to less serious charges for their roles in the beatings that killed Lucas Leonard, 19, and injured his 17-year-old brother Christopher. Pastor Tiffanie Irwin, her brother Joseph Irwin and mother-and-son church members Linda and David Morey are the last of nine people to be convicted in the brutal attack that investigators say took place after the victims discussed leaving the congregation.

    Efforts by lawyers for “affluenza” teenager Ethan Couch to have the judge in his case removed, which could have resulted in his release from jail, have failed. […] Couch’s attorneys had argued this week that Texas District Judge Wayne Salvant has no authority over Couch because the teen’s case should be considered a civil case. But prosecutor Richard Alpert argued Couch’s case “ceased to be a civil case when it was transferred from juvenile to felony court.” …

    Prosecutors declined to charge Caitlyn Jenner on Wednesday in a California car crash that led to the death of another driver, saying there was not enough evidence for a conviction. Authorities said Jenner was towing an off-road vehicle on a trailer behind a Cadillac Escalade on Feb. 7 when she crashed into two cars, pushing one into oncoming traffic. Driver Kim Howe was killed when her Lexus was hit by a Hummer. "We believed from the start that a thorough and objective investigation would clear Caitlyn of any criminal wrongdoing," said Blair Berk, Jenner's attorney.
