Two months later, Rick Pulley was charged with Patty Jo's murder. He had moved to Tennessee by that time, but he was brought back to North Carolina to face charges.

Ralph Nader may be on the presidential ballot come November after all.

[SUPER=03-Richmond; ]

The Attorney General's office says it decided to deny Nader a spot on the ballot, based on information from the State Board of Elections. On Friday, the petitions containing more than 14-thousand signatures were denied by the state because they weren't grouped by congressional district. Now there is some doubt of whether that restriction is a requirement. No word yet on when a final ruling will be issued.
