Louisiana case at center of U.S. Supreme Court hearing on appropriate sentencing for juvenile killers
The 17-year-old Scotlandville High School student who shot and killed East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Office Deputy Charles Hurt in 1963 is long gone, having aged into a 69-year-old Angola inmate who is rehabilitated and deserves a chance to show he should not die behind bars, attorneys for Henry Montgomery will argue Tuesday at the U.S. Supreme Court.

Medical error rips yet another family apart forever
The Today programme's Jim Naughtie may have described as "very unusual" the tragic case of Karissa Cox and Richard Carter, the distraught parents accused of injuring their son, who was therefore sent for adoption, before a criminal court found that the cause of the boy's injuries was "metaphyseal fractures" due to a Vitamin D deficiency.
