Teen charged in death of 11-year-old girl

A 14-year-old girl was charged Wednesday with first-degree murder in the death of an 11-year-old girl who was stabbed more than 30 times at the suburban Chicago home where they both lived. During a court hearing Wednesday, prosecutors said the suspect told authorities the 11-year-old didn't appreciate all she had done for her, including making dinner and doing the younger girl's chores. Authorities haven't released the names of the victim or the suspect, nor have they said how the two are related.

Mayor calls new video a 'minor setback'

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford says he had a "minor setback" this week when he was caught on video slurring his words and says his private life is not affecting his work. The video that emerged Tuesday showed Ford swearing and trying to imitate a Jamaican accent during a rant against Toronto police. Ford has acknowledged it was him in the video and that he "had a little bit" to drink on Monday night. He said Wednesday that it is a private matter.
