BALTIMORE (AP) — The latest information disclosed by Baltimore police about the arrest of Freddie Gray is raising additional questions. A police official says it turns out that the police van that was carrying Gray to the station made a stop that was previously undisclosed -- one that was captured on a "privately owned camera." That detail emerged as police completed a criminal investigation into Gray's death, and delivered it to a prosecutor -- a day earlier than promised. The police commissioner says his department stands ready to help prosecutors gather more evidence.

CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) — A police officer in Colorado is describing the arrest of James Holmes after the movie theater shooting attack that left 12 people dead three years ago. Officer Jason Oviatt, testifying at the Holmes trial today, said he was in a parking lot just 20 feet from Holmes when he realized Holmes was involved in the attack. He says he first thought Holmes was another officer because he wore a gas mask and helmet. But while other officers looked for a way into the theater, Holmes stood beside a car, looking relaxed. Oviatt and another officer arrested him.

KATHMANDU, Nepal (AP) — Police say a woman in her 20s has been rescued five days after Nepal's massive earthquake. A police official says the woman was rescued in an area near Kathmandu's main bus terminal. Earlier today, a 15-year-old boy was pulled, dazed and dusty, from the wreckage of a seven-story building elsewhere in Kathmandu.

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Former NFL star Plaxico Burress has been indicted on charges he failed to pay taxes. New Jersey prosecutors say the former wide receiver with the Pittsburgh Steelers, New York Giants and New York Jets is charged with willful failure to pay a state tax and issuing a bad check or electronic funds transfer. He's the first person in the state to be charged under a new law that makes issuing a bad electronic funds transfer a criminal offense just like passing a bad check.

MOSCOW (AP) — A member of Russia's parliament wants prosecutors to determine whether Apple violated Russia's ban on so-called gay "propaganda" when it delivered U2's latest album to a half-billion iTunes users for free last year. According to the newspaper Izvestia, the lawmaker says the cover of the album shows two men in what he calls "a display of non-traditional sexual relations." In fact, the cover shows the band's drummer embracing his 18-year-old son, both of them shirtless.
