In other news, a three-judge panel has overturned a disputed election in Bedford County. A registrar's mistake led to 56 people voting in the wrong district on November 4th. After Supervisor Tony Ware lost by 12 votes and School Board candidate Carolyn Dixon lost by just 8 votes, they challenged the election results. Late today, the judges agreed that the mistake probably had an impact on the outcome of the election. They ordered a new election, which will be held in November. Both boards have 45 days to appoint someone to fill the vacancies until then.

[SUPER=03-Roanoke]

When seventy-seven year old Teresa Rogers was found dead at her home Monday morning, it looked like she'd fallen and hit her head. An autopsy and a preliminary investigation revealed "suspicious circumstances." Police have obtained a search warrant for her home as well as the big house where her son, Christopher lived on the same property. He's a part-time school teacher. Her younger son, Jonathan, is a lawyer. When I asked Jonathan Rogers whether Christopher could be a suspect in his mother's murder, he said, "I don't want to believe that."
