Hearing In Louisville

— In his second story from Louisville, NPR's Alex Chadwick reports that Mel Ignatow faces another hearing today. He was acquitted of murder and rape 9 years ago, then new evidence proved he had committed the crimes. Prosecutors charged Ignatow with perjury...he's served out that sentence, with the maximum reduction for good behavior. Now authorities are struggling to hold him on other charges.
