A federal judge accepts a plea deal for the wife of Andrew Fastow, the former Enron chief financial officer. Under the agreement, Lea Fastow would spend five months in prison; she had been charged with six criminal counts. That could clear the way for a plea agreement from Andrew Fastow and his cooperation in the government's probe of the Enron collapse. NPR's Wade Goodwyn reports.
