Question of the Day
Suspect held in ‘Grim Sleeper’ killings
LOS ANGELES — Police made an arrest Wednesday in the so-called “Grim Sleeper” serial killings, in which a man is thought to have killed 11 people since 1985, a law enforcement official said.
Detectives have spent years probing at least 11 slayings between 1985 and 2007, in which the killer targeted young black women and one man.
The killer was dubbed the “Grim Sleeper” because he apparently took a 14-year hiatus in his crimes.
Refinery agrees to fines for fatal blast
SAVANNAH — Imperial Sugar has agreed to pay more than $6 million in fines for safety violations at two of its U.S. plants, including the Georgia refinery where a dust explosion killed 14 employees in 2008.
Federal regulators announced the settlement Wednesday after nearly two years of wrangling with the Texas-based company as it contested penalties first proposed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
The settlement includes more than $4 million in fines for 124 safety violations at Imperial Sugar’s plant near Savannah, where the explosion was caused by sugar dust igniting like gunpowder.
The company agreed to an additional $2 million for 97 violations OSHA later found at its plant in Gramercy, La.
