SPRING, Texas -- A gunman charged Thursday in the killing of four children and their parents was dressed as a delivery man when he arrived at the suburban Houston home where the family was tied up and shot to death, officials said.

Ronald Lee Haskell, 33, is charged with multiple counts of capital murder in the killings Wednesday evening, Harris County Precinct 4 Constable Ron Hickman said early Thursday. He also is accused of critically wounding a 15-year-old girl in the shooting rampage.

"I have not personally in 40 years seen a tragedy in one family that is this horrific," Hickman said.

In court early Thursday, prosecutors said Haskell tied up the family, placed them face down an

The prohibition of marijuana in Washington state fell early Monday as a small number of retail shop owners received an electronic copy of a license to sell just-for-fun cannabis.

Those 2 a.m. local time (5 a.m. ET) emails bang-started a scramble for the actual pot, now waiting in the warehouses of an equally small number of separately licensed growers. Exactly 24 hours after product orders are placed, per a mandatory waiting period, the owners will be allowed to open for business, launching a new experiment in the legal sale of a very old plant.

The cash registers are ready. The display cases are clean. But less than a day before the likely first retail sale of marijuana in Washington,

(CNN) -- Much of the focus in Cooper Mills Harris' death has been on Justin Ross Harris, the father who failed to drop the toddler off at day care.

The 33-year-old Georgia man faces charges of murder and child cruelty in the case, but authorities have repeatedly mentioned the actions of his wife, Leanna. She has not been charged with any crime.

Leanna Harris told CNN at the beginning of the investigation that her lawyer had advised her not to speak to the media, so not much is known about her. A More

Water pollution may be the leading worldwide cause of deaths and diseases, accounting for 14,000 human deaths daily. An estimated 700 million Indians have no access to a proper toilet, and 1,000 Indian children die of diarrheal sickness every day.

Some 90% of China's cities suffer from some degree of water pollution, and nearly 500 million people lack access to safe drinking water. In addition to the acute problems of water pollution in developing countries, industrialized countries continue to struggle with pollution problems as well. In the most recent national report on water quality in the United States, 45 percent of assessed stream miles, 47 percent of assessed lake acres, and 32 pe

Defects in fracked oil and gas wells in Pennsylvania are leading to methane leaks in shale wells throughout the state — greenhouse gas emissions that could exacerbate climate change, according to a Cornell University study published Monday.

The study, conducted by a team led by Cornell environmental engineering professor Anthony Ingraffea, analyzed more than 75,000 publicly available state environmental compliance records for about 41,000 oil and gas wells t

The mother of a toddler who died locked inside a sweltering SUV said that like her husband, she did online research on how long it would take a child to die in a hot car because she feared it would happen, according to a search warrant released Sunday.

Leanna Harris hasn't been charged in the death of her son, 22-month-old Cooper, and police have not called her a suspect. But the search warrant said the woman went onto the Internet before the boy's death to search for information about children dying in cars.

A judge will determine this week whether there's enough evidence to keep Justin Ross Harris in jail. He is charged with murder and second-degree child cruelty, and will go befo

Washington (CNN) -- The Supreme Court ruled Monday that closely held companies cannot be required to pay to cover some types of contraceptives for their employees, ending its term with a narrow legal and political setback for a controversial part of President Barack Obama's health care reform law.

In a 5-4 decision, the high court's conservatives essentially ruled that some for-profit corporations have religious rights.

The owners of Hobby Lobby, furniture maker Conestoga Wood Specialties and Christian bookseller Mardel argued that the Affordable Care Act violates the First Amendment and other federal laws protecting religious freedom because it requires them to provide coverage for co

When most 8-year-old kids think about their birthday, they dream about a fun party with their friends, a delicious cake and a huge pile of gifts.

Ethan Katz is not most kids.

A couple months ago, when he was talking about turning 9 with his mom, Lisa, he decided that for his birthday, he wanted to raise money to save dogs.

"Ethan is an avid dog lover and always has been," Lisa told The Huffington Post.

The Katz family has two rescue dogs: a golden retriever named Fly and a mini golden retriever named Brooklyn, who started off as a foster puppy from City Dogs Rescue, a D.C.-based nonprofit that rescues dogs from overcrowded or high-kill shelters and places them in foster homes. Th

HP, one of the original 800lb Silicon Valley gorillas that has seen much happier days, is staking everything on a brand new computer architecture that it calls… The Machine. Judging by an early report from Bloomberg Businessweek, up to 75% of HP’s once fairly illustrious R&D division — HP Labs – are working on The Machine. As you would expect, details of what will actually make The Machine a unique proposition are hard to come by, but it sounds like HP’s groundbreaking work on memristors (pictured top) and silicon photonics will play a key role.

In the words of HP Labs, The Machine will be a complete replacement for current computer system architectures. There will be a new operating syst

Actor Gary Oldman grew weepy in an appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” apologizing for his recent comments in an interview with Playboy.

"I said some things that were poorly considered, and once I had seen it printed, I could see that it was offensive, insensitive, pernicious and Ill-informed," he said Wednesday night.

"I have deeply injured and wounded a great many people … from my heart, I am profoundly, profoundly sorry."

In the expletive-laden Playboy interview, the "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" star defended fellow actors Mel Gibson and Alec Baldwin from critics of their controversial remarks about Jews and gays, decrying the "political correctness" that ensnared the actors.
