Parents seek to toss charges in girl's drug death

BROCKTON, Mass. - Parents accused of killing their 4-year-old daughter by overmedicating her with prescription drugs asked a judge Monday to dismiss murder charges, arguing that a new medical report by a prosecution expert supports their claim that the girl died of pneumonia.

Lawyers for Carolyn and Michael Riley said that because the grand jury that indicted the couple did not have the report, they were given "inaccurate" information on the cause of Rebecca Riley's death.

US road projects do not help unemployment

WASHINGTON - Ten months into President Barack Obama's first economic stimulus plan, a surge in spending on U.S. roads and bridges has had no effect on local unemployment and only barely helped the beleaguered construction industry, an Associated Press analysis has found.

Spend a lot or spend nothing at all, it did not matter, the AP analysis showed: Local unemployment rates rose and fell regardless of how much stimulus money Washington poured out for transportation, raising questions about Obama's argument that more road money would address an "urgent need to accelerate job growth."
