    A knife-wielding attacker posed as a law enforcement officer to get inside a Virginia home, stabbed the residents multiple times then told them he'd be back to finish the job as his wife waited outside, prosecutors said. The suspect, 31-year-old Andrew Schmuhl, was wearing nothing but a diaper when he was apprehended after a car chase, authorities said Friday. These and other disturbing details emerged during a bond hearing for Schmuhl's wife, 30-year-old Alecia Schmuhl, Friday morning. The Schmuhls, both lawyers, are accused in the attack of a couple in their 60s. Police have said the attack apparently stemmed from...

    A 25-year-old Kenyan woman has come forward with allegations that she was kept as a domestic slave for three months by Saudi Arabian diplomats living in Northern Virginia. The allegations come to light two weeks after News4 first reported an investigation into possible human trafficking at a Saudi-owned compound in McLean, Va. The Kenyan woman -- who goes by the name Sheila -- said she was brought to the U.S. from Kenya by way of Saudi Arabia last summer, by people who forced her to work long hours each day, seven days a week, as a domestic worker. "I used...

    Two women have been rescued from a U.S. diplomatic mansion owned by Saudi Arabia amid concerns they were being kept as domestic slaves. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers raided the villa in McLean, Virginia - which is owned by the Saudi Armed Forces Office and believed to house its defence attaché - on Tuesday night and removed two workers from the Philippines who are suspected to have been the 'victims of domestic servitude'. One woman reportedly tried to flee by squeezing through a gap in the front gate as it was closing.

    Federal authorities have launched an investigation into a Saudi Arabian compound in Northern Virginia over suspicions its residents may be engaging in human trafficking. Federal and local police responded to a call from a house in the D.C. suburb of McLean and found “two potential victims of trafficking” who hailed from the Philippines, Raw Story reported. One of the women tried to run. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said the investigation could move sluggishly because of complications from diplomatic immunity rules.

    A group led by anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan has protested near the CIA's headquarters and former Vice President Dick Cheney's home in northern Virginia. They were protesting the use of unmanned drone aircraft to attack al-Qaida and Taliban targets. The group of about 70 people rallied alongside a highway near the CIA compound Saturday. About half then marched to Cheney's nearby street and stayed for 20 minutes. Police kept them from going down his street. Sheehan's 21-year-old son Casey was killed in Iraq in April 2004. She staged a prolonged demonstration outside former President George W. Bush's ranch near Crawford,...

    When Republican supporters of candidate Robert McDonnell are asked why they voted, a surprising number refer to "he" or "him." The folks at the Chesterbrook polling place in McLean are not talking about McDonnell or his rival, Creigh Deeds, but President Barack Obama. McDonnell voter Christina Hoag, who owns a catering business with about 25 employees, said that she hopes a Republican victory would slow the growth of government and send the message to Democrats that they don't have the mandate in Washington they think they do to remake the economy. "There's anger right now within ourselves, and I think...

    General Growth Properties, owner of premier malls such as Tysons Galleria in McLean, filed the largest real estate bankruptcy in U.S. history Thursday, but analysts say the move is not a sign of retail Armageddon. General Growth, like many homeowners, paid top dollar in a rush to buy properties earlier in the decade and now finds itself awash in debt with its asset values shrinking.

    By James A. Barnes, National Journal © National Journal Group Inc. Monday, March 31, 2008 If potential presidents can be judged by how they run their campaigns, then how they staff those efforts may provide important clues to the kinds of talent they would recruit for their administrations. Because Democratic front-runner Barack Obama is a relative newcomer to national politics, an examination of his inner circle of political and policy advisers offers new windows into his thinking, leadership style, and sources of expertise. The Democratic front-runner's team has a relatively shallow bench, but its political achievements thus far are quite...

    A Knox County judge today ordered Erin McLean jailed for 95 days for what he contended were 17 acts of contempt - more time behind bars than her husband received in the March 2007 shooting death of her 18-year-old lover. Fourth Circuit Court Judge Bill Swann imposed a 10-day sentence for each of the violations, stacking one on top of the other for a total of 170 days. He suspended 75 of those days, however. "Court orders have to be followed," Swann told Erin McLean. "That has to have consequences." Swann faulted McLean for repeatedly invoking her Fifth Amendment right...

    Kirlins say they will only have to cede 15 percent of south Boulder lot. Two Boulder neighbors have settled an adverse-possession case that made national headlines last year and prompted changes to the state's law, according to a joint statement released Tuesday. Don and Susie Kirlin, who originally lost 34 percent of one of their vacant south Boulder lots to their neighbors Richard McLean and Edith Stevens, said they had settled a lawsuit and will only cede 15 percent of the lot. "This settlement allows the parties to put this longstanding and difficult dispute behind them," the couples wrote in...

    A Knoxville man was sentenced to four years in prison today, with 47 days jail time and then probation in the love-triangle slaying of his student-teacher wife’s teenage lover. Knox County Criminal Court Judge Mary Beth Leibowitz ruled Eric McLean should serve time for the shooting death of 18-year-old Sean Powell in 2007. He spent 42 days in jail before making bond and must spend the additional 47 days incarcerated. McLean, 33, was convicted in September of reckless homicide, which carried no more than a four-year prison term. Powell had been having an affair with McLean's wife, Erin McLean, a...

    Exactly as some legal experts predicted, Boulder's courts saw a spike in claims of "adverse possession" filed by people apparently trying to beat the clock on changes to the controversial land law. Of the 25 active adverse-possession lawsuits in Boulder County -- where a person or company claims someone else's land after trespassing on it for at least 18 years -- 15 of those cases were filed in June Some of those cases were filed just hours before changes to the law went into effect last Tuesday, court records show. The changes, drafted by a bipartisan group of state legislators...
