Jury finds widow of Air Force Major not guilty in his death

  Jury finds widow of Air Force Major not guilty in his death A jury found an Albuquerque woman accused of killing her husband not guilty Tuesday. The judge gave a jury three options to consider for Amy Herrera: Find her guilty of second-degree murder, guilty of voluntary manslaughter or not guilty. A jury deliberated for several hours before reaching their decision. Amy Herrera was accused of shooting Marc Herrera in 2012, in their home during a party police say they were hosting for foreign exchange students. The state finished its closing arguments Monday and said Amy Herrera planned to kill her husband. They said ever since he died in 2012, she's changed her story to play in her favor. Herrera claimed her husband committed suicide inside their closet. "There is no drags or smears on this dress inconsistent with getting out on top of a man whose dead weight had fell on top of you," said State's Attorney Lisa Vigil-Roybal. The defense said Marc Herrera was on edge because his career was in trouble and he was angry. They said he abused Amy and she feared for her life the night of the shooting. Marc's parents said the verdict doesn’t change things for them. Court records show Amy Herrera was charged three times in this case. It was dismissed twice. The family said even though they don't agree with the verdict, they are glad the trial is over. “I know who murdered my son. I know where she did, I know when she did it and I know how she did it. Unlike her, we abide by the law.

An elderly Canadian woman has recovered a diamond engagement ring she lost 13 years ago, after it turned up this week on a carrot pulled from her old garden.

Mary Grams, 84, told local media she lost the ring she'd worn since 1951 while weeding on the family farm near Armena, Alberta in 2004.

Out of embarrassment she said she kept it a secret from everyone except her son, going as far as buying a replacement ring so her husband Norman would be none the wiser. Norman died in 2012 shortly after the couple's 60th wedding anniversary.

OTTAWA - An elderly Canadian woman has recovered a diamond engagement ring she lost 13 years ago, after it turned up this week on a carrot pulled from her old garden .

A Canadian woman got an extra carrot with her diamond ring when it was found in her vegetable patch 13 years after she lost it. Mary Grams, 84, was devastated when she lost the ring while weeding on the family farm in Alberta in 2004.

This week, Grams's daughter-in-law Colleen Daley, who now lives on the farm, reportedly spotted the ring on a grotesque carrot she'd pulled from the garden while washing dirt off it.

The stubby, misshapen carrot had grown through the ring, appearing like a tight band on a chubby finger.

"I'd never seen anything like that," Daley told public broadcaster CBC.

"I asked my husband if he recognized the ring, and he said yeah. His mother had lost her engagement ring years ago in the garden and never found it again. And it turned up on this carrot."

Grams said she never expected to see the ring again, after looking "high and low" for it years back.

"It still fits," she told CBC.

Oddly, it's not the first time someone has recovered a ring on a carrot. A Swedish woman found her wedding ring on a carrot growing in her garden in 2011, 16 years after losing it.
