The Montgomery County Sheriff's Department is investigating the homicide of an infant. Officials say an autopsy shows Toby Robert Harris of Elliston died last month of a drug overdose when he was less than a week old. The death is now being ruled a homicide because blood tests reveal drugs in the baby's system. No arrests have been made yet.

Sluder is charged with shooting to death his estranged wife, Loria, exactly seven years ago today.
The medical examiner originally ruled her death a suicide.
But investigators re-opened the case a little over a year ago after recovering more physical evidence.
Prosecutors now believe Roy Sluder now shot and killed Loria, but told police it was a suicide.
The trial is expected to last at least three days.

Cardinal Harry Flynn, Archbishop of Minneapolis/St. Paul."From this day forward anyone who offends will be out of the priesthood." THE NEW POLICY ALSO REQUIRES THE IMMEDIATE REPORTING OF ANY SEXUAL MISCONDUCT TO THE POLICE. THAT MEANS NO SHUFFLING OF PRIESTS BETWEEN PARISHES -- NO COVER-UP'S. EVEN THOUGH IT'S ONLY IN THE DRAFT STAGE -- THE PLAN ALREADY HAS ITS CRITICS. ONE PROPOSAL AT ISSUE IS THE IDEA OF REMOVING SERIAL ABUSERS -- WHILE KEEPING THOSE WHO HAVE ONLY ONE ALLEGATION OF MISCONDUCT IN THEIR PAST.
