CHICAGO: A Texas nurse has been charged with murder for shooting a young mother and kidnapping her three-day-old baby outside a pediatrician's office, officials said Wednesday. Verna McClain, 30, had recently suffered a miscarriage but did not tell her fiance about it, local media reported. She allegedly kidnapped the baby in hopes of passing him off as her own. Police managed to find the unharmed baby after several desperate hours of searching by tracing the suspect's Lexus to a nearby apartment complex. McClain didn't have the baby when she returned home, but told police little Keegan Schuchardt could be found at her sister's house. "To recover a child who was kidnapped and a mother killed by a stranger within no connection within five or six hours is as good of police work as you can do," Lieutenant Dan Norris of the Montgomery County sheriff department told reporters. McClain was parked in front of a pediatrician's ...

WASHINGTON: They didn't come with a flourish or in a much-plugged TV appearance, but endorsements by the top two Republicans in the US Congress finally arrived Tuesday for Mitt Romney, the party's all-but-certain nominee. Sensing the inevitability of a Romney victory in the battle to see which Republican squares off against President Barack Obama, House Speaker John Boehner ended his neutrality, saying he'd be "proud" to help him win the November election. "It's clear now Mitt Romney ...
WASHINGTON: The White House said on Tuesday that President Barack Obama would veto a small business tax cut proposal by Republicans in the House of Representatives that his Democrats complain is biased toward helping the rich. A partisan fight over the bill, which is set to come up for a vote on Thursday, mirrors a wider election-year battle between Obama and his likely Republican challenger Mitt Romney over tax policy and how best to grow the ...

WASHINGTON: US President Barack Obama wants a tenfold increase in the maximum civil and criminal penalties that can be applied for the manipulation of oil futures markets, the White House said on Tuesday. "These heightened penalties will make sure that penalties reflect the seriousness of misconduct," the White House said in a statement. Obama is also calling for Congress to provide more funding to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to increase surveillance and enforcement staff for oil ...
MONTREAL: A pilot drowsy after a mid-flight nap sent a plane plunging over the mid-Atlantic after mistakenly fearing a mid-air collision, injuring 16 passengers, an investigation found. The Air Canada pilot was apparently suffering from "sleep inertia" the stupor that follows a long nap when he sent the plane plunging some 400 feet in 46 seconds, throwing those not wearing safety belts out of their seats. The co-pilot quickly recovered, and the plane completed its route from ...
WASHINGTON: US President Barack Obama basked in a $53 million dollar monthly fundraising bonanza Monday, but Republican Mitt Romney warned him to "start packing" and get ready to leave the White House. Two new polls meanwhile offered conflicting pictures of the emerging race to November's general election -- with one suggesting Romney had nosed ahead, while another showed Democratic incumbent Obama with a solid lead. Obama, who is rebuilding his national political machine to battle Romney, the ...
