    Border Patrol cited in wrongful death claim


    CHULA VISTA — The family of a 32-year-old mother of five shot and killed by a Border Patrol agent as he rode on the hood of her car in suburban San Diego has filed a wrongful death claim against the agency, saying the agent had a long history of misconduct in a previous law enforcement job and should not have been on the street. The documents say agent Justin Tackett, 34, was suspended four times for misconduct including crashing a patrol car and violating the rights of suspects in the nearly four years that he worked as a sheriff’s deputy in Imperial County.

    Weather may hold for sky diving stunt

    ROSWELL — The weather in New Mexico appears to be cooperating this time for a daredevil trying to become the first sky diver to break the sound barrier. Meteorologist Don Day said the weather forecast is still favorable for the jump, scheduled for early Sunday near Roswell. Former Austrian paratrooper Felix Baumgartner will try to break a 1960 high-altitude parachuting record. He will also test a pressurized suit that was designed by the David Clark Co. of Worcester, Mass., for stratospheric jumps. (AP)
