ORLANDO, Fla. — The teenager who ran away from Ohio to Florida because she feared physical harm for converting from Islam to Christianity has been ordered back to Ohio.
A Florida judge said Tuesday that 17-year-old Rifqa Bary (RIFF'-kuh BEAR'-ee), who has been staying in Orlando, should return to her family, who live outside Columbus.
Bary has been in foster care in Florida while her case was being reviewed. The judge says he will turn over the case to an Ohio court in the next few weeks, but no order has been signed yet.
Bary ran away from her parents' home in July, saying she feared being killed for changing religions. But a Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation found no credible threats to Bary.
ORLANDO, Fla. — Attorneys for a Florida woman charged with killing her 2-year-old daughter want to prevent prosecutors from seeking the death penalty and are asking that charges against her be dropped.
Casey Anthony's attorneys filed the motions Wednesday, a day after the State Attorney's Office released hundreds of pages of documents related to the case.
Anthony's attorneys say that, given the evidence, prosecutors can't prove first-degree murder was committed or that Anthony ever abused her daughter, Caylee.
The 23-year-old woman has pleaded not guilty and claimed that a baby sitter kidnapped Caylee.
The Securities and Exchange Commission on Wednesday said it charged 11 people in connection with separate insider trading schemes related to acquisition deals at two different companies.
Three of the 11 have reached agreements on financial settlements with SEC, while the SEC said it's seeking injunctions against further violations, the return of ill-gotten gains with prejudgment interest and financial penalties from the other eight.
According to the SEC, five people illegally tipped off others or traded on private information ahead of Liberty Mutual Insurance Co.'s 2008 announcement that it would acquire Seattle-based insurance company Safeco Corp.
One of those five charged is Anthony Perez of Maitland, Fla., a former Goldman Sachs investment banker, who the SEC says illegally tipped off his brother, Ian C. Perez of Orlando, Fla.
Ian Perez bought Safeco call options one day ahead of the public announcement and later sold them for a profit of more than $152,000, the SEC said.
