COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton is criticizing Donald Trump's remarks on women after he insulted Republican presidential rival Carly Fiorina for her looks. Clinton says there is "one candidate" who "delights in insulting women every chance he gets." And she says she would "love to debate him." The remark is a swipe at Trump, who said this week that Fiorina's "face" would make her unelectable. Trump today insisted he was actually talking about her persona, not her appearance.
BALTIMORE (AP) — An attorney for the family of Freddie Gray is applauding a decision by a judge to keep the trials for six officers charged in Gray's case in Baltimore. A judge today dismissed arguments from the officers' attorneys, who said the days of riots, protests and citywide curfews would make it difficult to choose unbiased jurors in the city. The defense also said the city's $6.4 million settlement with Gray's family sent a message that the officers were guilty, but the judge said the settlement doesn't affect the criminal trials. Gray died after suffering a fatal spinal injury in police custody.
