    PARADISE VALLEY, Arizona -- Can you imagine getting 65,000 text messages after just one date? An Arizona woman is accused of doing just that. And it didn't end there.

Court documents say Ades sent the victim about 500 messages a day, which included disturbing ones like, "I want to wear your body parts" and "bathe in your blood." Officers say they found a butcher knife in...

Last month, Moody’s Investors Service slashed its operating-profit growth forecast for the restaurant sector. (This appears to...

In the other case, Stephen Letavec, 39, molested...
