Two lawyers say a woman who was convicted as an accomplice in her boyfriend's 1958 killing spree will apply for a pardon. Caril Clair, formerly Caril Fugate, was 14 when she accompanied Charlie Starkweather, who killed 10 people over eight days in Nebraska. Clair was convicted of first-degree murder for her role in the slayings. Lawyers John Stevens Berry and Linda Battisti together wrote "The Twelfth Victim, the Innocence of Caril Fugate in the Starkweather Murder Rampage." They contend Clair is innocent. They say on the day that the killings began, Clair arrived home from school and was greeted by Starkweather who was holding a gun. They say Clair was forced to go with Starkweather in the slayings. Berry says his office will file the application for Clair's pardon. 

Authorities say several University of Nebraska-Lincoln students in a fraternity face felony charges in the alcohol-related death of a freshman. University police say four FarmHouse Fraternity members were arrested Thursday on suspicion of procuring alcohol to a minor resulting in death. Three other students, including another fraternity member, face citations. Eighteen-year-old Clayton Real was found dead at the fraternity house near campus in September. Affidavits show Real's cause of death was acute alcohol intoxication. The affidavits also say fraternity members threw a party the night before and provided alcohol to underage attendees, including Real. 

If you have old computers and other electronics equipment collecting dust in your house, this weekend is the perfect time to get rid of them.

They'll collect computer monitors, towers, television, microwaves, TVs, VCRs, DVDs and other electronic equipment.  A contractor will collect the turned-items and dispose of them properly.
