Question of the Day
When the 54-year-old woman went to get out some puzzles, she had a seizure.
The boy found a phone and dialed 911 for help, calmly describing what happened.
Burlington County 911 coordinator Monica Gavio says the call was very unusual. Usually, when a child that age dials 911 she says, it’s an accident.
Convicted bomber gets life sentence
LAS VEGAS — A 29-year-old convicted bombmaker from Nicaragua has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for killing a hot-dog stand vendor outside a Las Vegas casino in 2007.
Porfirio Duarte-Herrera also was sentenced Thursday to 19 to 50 years for attempted murder with use of a deadly weapon and transportation of an explosive device.
Convicted co-defendant 34-year-old Omar Rueda-Denvers, an illegal immigrant from Guatemala, was sentenced earlier to life in prison plus 16 to 40 years.
The two men were convicted of killing 24-year-old Willebaldo Dorantes Antonio, of Mexico.
Prosecutors say Rueda-Denvers supplied the motive for the slaying - his ex-girlfriend was dating Dorantes Antonio - and Duarte-Herrera built the pipe bomb that was hidden in a coffee cup.
