LOUISVILLE, Ky.

Abortion clinic closing halted

A federal judge on Friday halted the impending shutdown of the only clinic in Kentucky that performs abortions. U.S. District Judge Greg Stivers’ two-week restraining order prevents officials from revoking the license of the EMW Women’s Surgical Center in Louisville. Stivers said the clinic demonstrated its patients “would be immediately and irreparably harmed” without the court’s order. The state has told the center it is out of compliance with laws related to its agreements with a local hospital and an ambulance service. The American Civil Liberties Union sued this week to halt the shutdown.

THURMONT, Md.

Student accused of plot

Police in Maryland said Friday an 18-year-old student accused of meticulously planning a mass shooting at her high school has been charged with two felonies involving a destructive device. Nichole Cevario of Thurmont was served with arrest warrants Friday, according to the Frederick County Sheriff’s Office. She is being held without bond. Deputies say they found a shotgun, ammunition and bomb-making materials including nails and fireworks at Cevario’s home March 23. Authorities went there after Cevario’s father reported he found evidence of the plot.

DENVER

Man hid body under grave

A Colorado man who pleaded guilty Friday to killing his estranged wife more than two decades ago led authorities last week to her body, which was buried under the grave of a World War II veteran. John Sandoval, 52, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and was sentenced to 25 years in prison for the 1995 death of Kristina Tournai-Sandoval. The husband found an open gravesite early in the morning on Oct. 20, 1995, that was scheduled for a burial that afternoon. Prosecutors said he dug about 2 feet below the grave and buried her. Cemetery workers then unknowingly buried the veteran over her remains.

WASHINGTON

EpiPen recall expanded

A recall of the emergency anti-allergy medicine EpiPen expanded Friday to the U.S. and other markets in North America, Europe, Asia and South America because the allergy shots may not work. The notice issued by Mylan N.V. expands upon warnings earlier this month after two reports of the device failing. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration says the recall covers 13 lots distributed from December 2015 to July 2016. The EpiPen is used to treat allergic reactions to certain food and bug bites.
