RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) — The man authorities say bought the assault rifles two other people used in the San Bernardino, California, massacre has been ordered held in custody while he faces terrorism-related charges. A magistrate judge ruled today that Enrique Marquez poses a continuing danger to the community. Marquez is charged with conspiring to provide material support to terrorists for abandoned plots in 2011 and 2012. He's also charged with illegally buying the rifles the shooters used in the attack. And he's charged with visa fraud stemming from his marriage to a Russian woman that prosecutors say was a sham.
BALTIMORE (AP) — He was the first Baltimore police officer to be tried in connection with the death of Freddie Gray -- and now, it appears that William Porter will also be the last to be tried. Prosecutors plan to try him for a second time, but not until the other five officers go to trial. Porter's first trial ended with a deadlocked jury after 16 hours of deliberations, and the judge declared a mistrial. The new schedule indicates that prosecutors may no longer be planning to use Porter as a witness in any of the other trials.
HONOLULU (AP) — In a new broadside against the leading Republican presidential candidate, President Barack Obama accuses Donald Trump of "exploiting" fears held by working-class men in particular about the economy and about stagnant wages. Speaking to NPR News, Obama said the financial crisis, technology and globalization mean that "blue-collar men" are "no longer getting the same bargain" they used to get, when they could "support their families on a single paycheck." He says Trump is "taking advantage" of what Obama calls "misdirected" fear and anger. Trump has made inflammatory comments about Hispanics and others, and wants to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the country.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Bill Cosby is suing model Beverly Johnson over her allegations that he drugged and attempted to sexually assault her in the 1980s. Cosby's defamation lawsuit filed in Los Angeles calls Johnson's story a lie and accuses her of using it to try to rekindle her career. Cosby's lawsuit contends a dinner described by Johnson was attended by his wife and he never dined alone with the supermodel. Last week, Cosby countersued seven other women who have accused him of sexual misconduct.
