A domestic dispute in Lynchburg last night left one woman dead and sent the suspect to the hospital.
Police say Gracie Yvette Dillard had been arguing with 29- year- old Gregory Curtis Jones in an apartment complex on Reusens (ROO-zens) Road.
Dillard ran to a neighbor's house for help, but Jones allegedly chased her down and shot her in the head.
When police came to arrest Jones, they found him suffering from self-inflicted wounds to his wrists.
He's been treated and released from Lynchburg General Hospital and now faces murder and firearms charges.[School

It is sure to be a difficult back-to-school day at Santana High. The thousands of students who, only two days ago, went running from the school in fear, are due to return to class today. Reminders of those moments of terror, like bulletholes and blood stains, have been removed, but the fear still lingers.

SOT: James Jackson, Wounded Student


The school has brought in couselors to ease the transition back into the classroom, but not everyone is welcome. Three students who were friends with alleged gunman Andy Williams were told to stay away by school officials. They want a closer look at why these kids remained quiet when Williams spoke of his plans for violence.

SOT: Paul Pfingst, District Attorney


Shots rang out in a boys' bathroom early Monday morning. When it was over, 2 students were dead, 13 others injured. The mother of one victim spoke of losing her son.

SOT: Michelle Zuckor, Victim's Mother

"I asked if he had gotten shot and they said yes she said yes. So we got to the hospital and found out he got shot in the head. "
Williams had lived with his father in an apartment near Santana High School since moving from Maryland about a year ago Police describe him as an "angry young man" but the true motive behind his rampage remains a mystery.

Thomas is charged with murder during what prosecutors say was a rape or attempted rape of 16 year old Tara Munsey last January.

She said cells matching his D-N-A profile were also under the teenager's fingernails and on her clothes.
On cross examination, she told defense attorney Mike Barbour that at least one other person's D-N-A was on Munsey's body ... but that it was NOT sperm.

Briefly, this British couple called Belinda and Kimberly their own, fighting off claims by a second would-be adoptive couple, AND both biological parents.
But a Little Rock court has ruled Alan and Judith Kilshaw's adoption...invalid.
In a sniping match waged as much on TV screens as in court, the Kilshaws say they'll fight on.

'I hope we won't have to take it beyond the Supreme Court in Arkansas.'
They insist NEITHER biological parent deserves the twins.

(SOT Judith Kilshaw, Adoptive Mother)

'One tried to give them away three or five times. The other one denied they were his. Now, I think they should go to a family that want them.'
The twins were taken from the British pair weeks ago, by British social services, pending the outcome of the transatlantic legal battle. Biological father Aaron Wecker says that's part of why HE joined the fight for custody...saying he can provide what's best for the girls.

(SOT Aaron Wecker, )

'To be in a stable environment, to be out of foster care, to be with parents that love them.'
Birth mother Tranda Wecker also wants them, but the Arkansas judge left that decision to another court.
Meanwhile, Belinda and Kimberly have been in four separate homes...in just eight months, and it looks like they'll be staying here in Britain, for a while longer. KD, CBS News, London ))
