Police arrested Snuka, a.k.a. James Wiley Smith Reiher, Tuesday at his New Jersey home and charged him with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter in the 1983 death of his then-girlfriend, Nancy Argentino, in Pennsylvania's Lehigh Valley. The charges came after a grand jury determined that Snuka, now 72, caused bruising and other injuries that led to Argentino’s death in a Whitehall Township motel room after a World Wrestling Federation event

Spanish police found two migrants crammed into tiny hiding spaces in a car — including under the hood — near the Moroccan border on Sunday, the latest example of extreme and potentially deadly risks taken by people flooding into Europe amid the continent's biggest refugee crisis since World War II.
A Civil Guard photo taken after the traffic stop shows one of the migrants stuffed behind the car's engine. The man was suffering from severe dehydration and lack of oxygen, NBC News' U.K. partner ITV reported.
A second man was found under the car's back seats, suffering from the same ailments.
European countries are struggling to deal with the migrant crisis, triggered by people fleeing war, poverty and persecution in Africa and the Middle East.

A man who spent nearly 25 years on Missouri's death row was executed Tuesday for the kidnapping, rape and stabbing death of a 15-year-old girl.
Roderick Nunley, 50, became the sixth death row inmate to be put to death in Missouri this year.
Ann Harrison was waiting for a school bus on her driveway in March 1989, when Nunley and Michael Taylor drove by in a stolen car and made the spur-of-the-moment decision to abduct her.
Her body was found in the trunk of the abandoned car three days later.
Both men were sentenced to death in 1991. Taylor was executed last year.

A single mother of two is recovering after a line-drive foul ball hit her in the face. Dana Mattay frequently attends RoughRider minor league baseball games at Dr. Pepper Ballpark in Frisco, Texas, in part because she loves the family atmosphere. She says she was celebrating starting a new job as a school counselor at Gunstream Elementary in Frisco, as well as celebrating back to school for her children, when she headed out to the ballpark on Aug. 14. What happened at that game changed everything in an instant. “I remember hearing, you know, the bat hit the ball. I remember hearing that but then the next thing I remember is just like I said, it was almost like it was in a little tunnel it happened so fast,” Mattay said. She believes she had just bent over to pick up some popcorn and was coming back upright when she was struck between the eyes by a line-drive foul ball. “In that split second I was like, 'Ok, I’m alive. I’m going to get through this. I’m going to be positive. God saved me.' “In my life, I’m going to keep moving forward,” Mattay said.

Prosecutors say video from Kenny’s phone shows at least a dozen kids shoving one another to the ground and attempting to throw punches.

The feud between Donald Trump and Jeb Bush appears to be intensifying.
Bush's 2016 presidential campaign has put out a video that shows Trump talking more like a Democrat than a Republican.
And while campaigning in Miami on Tuesday, Bush said Trump only resorts to insults because he can't talk about issues.
As Bush put it, "If you're not totally in agreement with him, you're an idiot, you're stupid, you have low energy" and the like.
Trump tweeted in response: "Yet another weak hit by a candidate with a failing campaign."

Three Southern California sheriff's deputies will face criminal charges in the beating of a man after he tried to escape on horseback in a high desert chase captured by NewsChopper4, District Attorney Michael Ramos said on Tuesday.
Charges were filed against San Bernardino County deputies Nicholas Downey, Michael Phelps and Charles Foster in the takedown of Francis Jared Pusok about 90 miles northeast of Los Angeles on April 9. "I believe the deputies that were filed on today crossed the line under color of authority," Ramos said. "But their actions should not tarnish the badge of those that honorably serve everyday."
