GREENBELT, Md. (AP) — A federal judge in Seattle says his order blocking President Donald Trump's original travel ban will not apply to the revised executive order.

On Thursday, a federal judge in Maryland blocked the revised ban.

(AP) — A disbarred Harvard University-trained attorney has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for drugging and kidnapping a California woman in a crime so bizarre that police first thought it was a hoax. Police say two years ago, Matthew Muller drugged the woman and her boyfriend in their Vallejo home. He then dragged the woman to his car and put her in his trunk. Denise Huskins says she was tortured physically and psychologically for two days.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Authorities are praising the actions of a fast-thinking paramedic who dove into a frigid Illinois lake and saved an infant from a submerged SUV. The sheriff in Madison County says a motorist called 911 Thursday morning to report a car heading down a hill toward Silver Lake in Highland, Illinois. Paramedic Todd Zobrist arrived on the scene and swam toward the SUV, where he found the baby floating inside. Authorities later recovered two bodies in related incidents. One was recovered from the lake and the other after a house fire.
