LAS VEGAS (AP) — Prosecutors in Nevada have charged a woman with murder, child abuse and felony hit-and-run after authorities say she repeatedly plowed her vehicle into crowds on the Las Vegas Strip. Documents filed today list the charges against 24-year-old Lakeisha Holloway. She is being held without bail in Sunday's crash that killed 1 and injured dozens. Police say her 3-year-old daughter was with her in the vehicle but wasn't hurt.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Immigration records show California shooter Syed Farook said he planned a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia in 2013 with his parents, and that he had arranged for his family to meet the relatives of his intended Pakistani bride. A House panel today released a letter that was submitted by Farook to support his application for a fiancé visa for Tashfeen Malik. It said a meeting of the families was planned for October 2013 in Saudi Arabia. Lawmakers are investigating the issuance of Malik's visa.

BOSTON (AP) — Stephen (STEHF'-ihn) Silva says he was "young" and "dumb" when he loaned a handgun to one of the Boston Marathon bombers, two months before that attack. The gun was later used to kill a police officer in the days after the bombings. Silva was sentenced today in Boston to the 17 months he had already served. He says Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (joh-HAHR' tsahr-NEYE'-ehv) told him he wanted the gun to rob college students -- and that he knew nothing about the bombers' plans.

DENVER (AP) — A judge in Denver is clearing the way for the release of a man who has spent 28 years behind bars for a rape he says he didn't commit. The judge set bond that will allow Clarence Moses-EL to walk free. He was convicted in 1988 after the victim said his face appeared to her in a dream. The judge tossed out the conviction last week after another inmate said he'd had sex with the woman.

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A recording from a police sergeant's belt tape suggests New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez was inebriated the night police responded to a complaint at a hotel where she was hosting a holiday party last week. A clerk called dispatchers to report noise and that someone was throwing bottles from a hotel balcony. The governor's speech is halted and lilting in the audio. A hotel security employee and the sergeant agree that the governor is inebriated. Martinez has already apologized after telling police dispatchers to call off officers and trying to find out who complained about the noise. She has said she had a drink and a-half.
