Ex-con suspected in trooper’s death kills self
PORT ORCHARD — A suspect in the shooting death of a Washington state trooper has died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
The Kitsap County Sheriff's Office confirmed Thursday afternoon that the man had passed away after being taken to Tacoma General Hospital.
The suspect was 28-year-old Joshua Jearl Blake, an ex-con with a history of drugs, assaulting the mother of one of his children, and kicking out the window of a police car. Blake was the registered owner of a pickup truck that Trooper Tony Radulescu pulled over just before he was fatally shot early Thursday.
Judge orders anonymous jury for bomb-plot trial
NEW YORK — A federal judge has ordered an anonymous jury for the upcoming trial of a New York City man accused of plotting to attack the city’s subway system with homemade bombs.
The judge hasn’t yet decided whether the jurors should be escorted daily from their homes to the court.
The Daily News reported that prosecutors have requested the extra security, citing the “extraordinarily compelling facts” surrounding the case.
Adis Medunjanin is accused of plotting with two accomplices to bomb subway lines during rush hour near the 8th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. He’s also accused of trying to recruit a fourth person to travel to Pakistan “to wage violent jihad.”
Authorities have called it one of the most serious terrorism threats since 9/11.
