GRANBY, Colo. (AP) — Investigators are trying to determine how a Texas woman fell to her death from a chairlift at a small Colorado ski resort. The lift at Ski Granby Ranch remains closed today but the rest of the resort is open. The 40-year-old woman's two daughters were also injured after falling about 20 feet. The fatal fall is the first in the state in over a decade.

NORRISTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Bill Cosby wants to move his trial out of a suburban Philadelphia courthouse, arguing there's been widespread negative press coverage of the sexual assault case.
