VANCOUVER, Washington - The woman who admitted faking acid being tossed into her face, appeared in court today and asked for her trial to be postponed. On August 30, 2010, Storro told police a stranger had tossed acid into her face, leaving her with severe burns and scars. Police detectives were doubtful of her claims. They felt her claims didn't make much sense because her burns appeared to be far too even. They say a liquid tossed into the face as she claimed would have left burns on her neck and arms. The media first ate up the story, making national headlines. She was booked into network morning shows, her face wrapped in bandages, and with a very positive demeanor about what had happened. Then Storro finally admitted she had lied. She's currently being held on second-degree theft charges for the donations received from the community to help her with all her medical bills. Today Storro's lawyers asked the judge to postpone the trial for a few months for more time to prepare their case. The judge reset the trial date for May 16. ...

SPRINGFIELD, Oregon - After a grand jury indicted him for killing his wife, William Wiggins changed his plea to guilty of manslaughter so as to face 10 years in prison instead of 25 years to life. Wiggins told police that his wife, in her early 60's, drowned in her hot tub but charged him with murder five months later. Police say Wiggins could have gotten away with murder if they had not searched his wife's body for clues to her death. "The investigators did a good job at examining him," prosecutors say. "We found what we thought were what I feel are defense wounds on him, which raised our suspicion level and ultimately led to where we are at today, having him convicted." "Andrea was the love of my life and I will never forget her," said Wiggins to the judge. The victim’s father, Jack Nicholson, asked the judge for at least a 10-year sentence, saying his daughter was a "precious and special person" that she “worked all her life trying to make things better.” Police say Wiggins and his wife Andrea, an assistant dean at the University of Oregon's College of Education, had a troubled marriage. ...

Firefighters fought a large fire, which began in a Portland scrap yard Sunday morning. Twenty cars and piles of debris broke into heavy blazes at American Compost & Recycling on Columbia Blvd. Firefighters used aerial ladders and poured water over the blazes.

SALEM, Oregon - A photo of Democratic Representative David Wu wearing a tiger costume and other unusual revelations about his mental health are increasing pressure on the seven-term Oregon Democrat to resign. Wu issued a strong statement saying he will not resign. His tenacity comes in the face of negative statements and newspaper editorials calling for him to resign. Wu admitted to sending photos of himself wearing a tiger costume to staff members while he was in the middle of a heated campaign last year. Some observers have laughed off the idea of the big concerns for such a small issue but Wu has said this was unprofessional.

PORTLAND, Oregon - Congressman David Wu responded today for the first time to reports of erratic behavior last November. Wu's staffers asked him to get a mental health evaluation because of bizarre emails he sent to them. Some of his aides attempted an intervention and looked into psychiatric care for the Congressman. Staffers and The Oregonian have charged Wu with "belligerent" remarks to Democratic voters and pretending to be his own children to send e-mails to staffers. One email in particular included an attached image of Wu dressed in a tiger costume. After the last election, five or six staffers resigned from Wu's office. On ABC's Good Morning America, Wu said he's ready to move on. "This was a very difficult time in my life," Said Wu. "I've had a couple of pretty stressful years.

SEATTLE, Washington – Four Americans taken hostage by Somali pirates off East Africa were shot and killed by their captors Tuesday, the U.S. military said, marking the first time U.S. citizens have been killed in a wave of pirate attacks plaguing the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean for years. U.S. naval forces who were trailing the Americans' captured yacht with four warships quickly boarded the vessel after hearing the gunfire. They tried to provide lifesaving care to the Americans, but they died of their wounds, U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Florida said in a statement. A member of a U.S. special operations force killed one of the pirates with a knife as he went inside of the yacht, said Vice Adm. Mark Fox, commander of U.S. naval forces for the Central Command. Fox said in a televised briefing that the violence on Tuesday started when a rocket-propelled grenade was fired from the yacht at the USS Sterett, a guided-missile destroyer which was 600 yards away. The RPG missed and almost immediately afterward small arms fire was heard coming from the yacht, Fox said. President Barack Obama, who was notified about the deaths at 4:42 a.m. Washington time, had authorized ...
