Man pleads in U. of Mich. medical student's death

Posted: Updated:

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - A man has pleaded guilty in the shooting death of a University of Michigan medical student.

In addition to pleading to second-degree murder Friday in Washtenaw County Trial Court, Shaquille Jones also provided Paul DeWolf's family with a firsthand account of how the 25-year-old Air Force officer was fatally shot last summer.

Jones says he and two other men came to Ann Arbor to break into houses, including one that contained DeWolf's apartment. He says DeWolf grabbed for a gun held by one of the men. After a struggle, Jones says it went off.

DeWolf's father, Thom, tells The Ann Arbor News that hearing how his son died "was more difficult than" he "expected it to be."

The 21-year-old Jones faces a minimum of 18 years in prison.

    Federal authorities to monitor Newark police

    Tuesday, July 22 2014 9:37 PM EDT2014-07-23 01:37:12 GMT
    Newark police engaged in the excessive use of force, routinely stopped people on the street for no legitimate reason and regularly stole property from civilians, the U.S. Department of Justice concluded in a report released Tuesday that set the stage for federal monitoring of the police department that serves New Jersey's largest city. The report is the culmination of a three-year investigation begun months after the American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint.

    The NYPD is investigating a major security breach at the Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most highly secured landmarks in New York City. Two white flags — international symbols of surrender — fluttered from poles on the stone supports that hold cables above the bridge connecting Brooklyn and Manhattan. The flags had a faint appearance of the stars and stripes. The American flags that are normally up at the bridge appeared to have been removed.
