WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate takes a test vote today on legislation that would give Congress a chance to review and possibly reject any final nuclear deal with Iran.

HAZELWOOD, Mo. (AP) — A St. Louis man has been charged with killing a 19-year-old college student who put an ad in Craigslist to sell his sports car. Twenty-four-year-old Michael Gordon is being held on $1 million bond.

Authorities say Clark had traded emails with Gordon about the car.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Americans appear open to a softer immigration policy than Republican presidential candidates have preached in the past. A new AP-GfK Poll suggests that Republicans overwhelmingly want a candidate to reverse President Barack Obama's unilateral action to postpone deportations. But most surveyed could see themselves voting for someone who would keep that policy in place. Those surveyed favor a path to citizenship for people in the country illegally by 53 to 44 percent. And 50 percent support a path to legal status short of citizenship, while 48 percent oppose it.
