FAA, NTSB officials start reviewing crash
Volusia County sheriff's spokesman Gary Davidson said Sunday investigators believe the pilot of the plane was Scott Shaw, 31, of Sanford. His wife, Lisa Shaw, 30, was also believed to be a passenger.
The identities of the other victims are presumed to be Kathleen Stanley, 53, of Bowmansville, N.Y., and her 29-year-old son, Kevin W. Stanley of Lancaster, N.Y.
Lookout convicted in fast-food murder
Otto Wright's jury was sequestered after it began deliberations Thursday and returned the first-degree murder verdict Saturday.
Nicholas Megrath, 18, was taped to a chair and shot once in the head at close range at Chick-fil-A in the Palm Beach Mall in 1999.
A previous jury deadlocked on the same charges against Wright, 21, in October. His lawyers say they will appeal. Two other men were arrested, but prosecutors didn't file any charges for lack of evidence.
Man charged with taping child sex acts
Benjamin Coker was arrested Friday after investigators found the videos after searching the man's home, Bay County sheriff's spokeswoman Ruth Sasser said. Coker is being held in lieu of $30,000 bail.
Coker intended to sell the videos, saying on one of the tapes that a scene of him molesting one of the girls was worth $1,000, officials said.
The other girls were 7 and 11 years old, officials said. The oldest girl told child protection officials on Wednesday that Coker had molested her and recorded the acts with a hand-held video camera.
A sheriff's spokesman said Sunday investigators have not determined how Coker came into contact with the girls.
