Bomb plot suspect wears mask in court
A soldier accused of planning to bomb Fort Hood troops in a restaurant last summer wore a mask in court for the first time Monday as a jury was selected in his federal trial.
Pfc. Naser Jason Abdo, who has been accused of spitting blood on authorities escorting him, wore an oval mask over his nose and mouth. Several U.S. marshals seated near him in the Texas courtroom wore protective glasses.
Abdo, a Muslim soldier who was AWOL from Fort Campbell, Ky., is accused of planning to bomb a restaurant in Killeen that was filled with soldiers from nearby Fort Hood and then shoot any survivors.
He faces up to life in prison if convicted.
Couple get engaged after running half-marathon
CLEVELAND — Two Akron residents are celebrating after their half-marathon ended up being a sort of race to the altar.
Allison Ramsey says she was “completely shocked” when her boyfriend got down on his knee to propose after they finished the Cleveland half-marathon Sunday. The Plain Dealer reports Miss Ramsey, 30, was crying but nodded yes when Nolan James Jr. popped the question.
Mr. James, 25, says proposing at the race was appropriate because the couple’s first date about a year ago started with a two-mile run.
He says carrying the engagement ring for all 13.1 miles of the race made him nervous. He says he had to keep touching his pocket to be sure he hadn’t lost it.
