HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is getting ready to release a report Monday with new details on how police and prosecutors handled the Jerry Sandusky child molestation investigation. It took prosecutors nearly three years to charge the former Penn State assistant coach, who eventually was convicted and is serving a lengthy prison sentence.

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The U.S. Border Patrol has, at the last minute, canceled a plan to fly migrants from south Texas to California for processing. Two flights on Monday would have transported some 280 Central American migrants, and the flights were to have continued every three days. The government has been struggling to cope with a surge of Central Americans entering Texas' Rio Grande Valley. The Border Patrol has made more than 174,000 arrests since October.

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — The mayor of Springfield, Massachusetts, is calling for an end to refugee settlement in his city. Mayor Domenic Sarno says Somali families are putting pressure on already strained services. Springfield was once an industrial center where nearly a third of the population now lives below the poverty line. The U.S. State Department says it can't help where immigrants eventually move.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — South Korea's Defense Ministry says one of its soldiers has been captured after he allegedly killed five colleagues. Officials say the 22-year-old sergeant tried to commit suicide by shooting himself in the abdomen. The man was taken to a hospital. There had been a massive manhunt for the man who authorities say killed five and wounded seven Saturday night before fleeing his frontline army unit.

EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) — An Iraqi immigrant could get life in prison for beating his wife to death in El Cajon, California. The case was first thought to be a hate crime when in 2012, Shaima Alawadi's daughter found a note near her mother's body that said "This is my country, go back to yours, you terrorist." Investigators later determined that the note was photocopied and possibly planted. Kassim Alhimidi (ahl-huh-MEE'-dee) is scheduled to be sentenced Monday.
