Daniel Gatrell, whose decision to turn down a plea deal in the murder of toddler Hannah Dowdie and her father we reported earlier on the blog, has apparently changed his mind. He's back at the courthouse with his lawyer, a spokesman for Circuit Judge Chris Piazza has notified us. We'll update you when know the outcome.

UPDATE: Gatrell pleaded guilty to a reduced charge of manslaughter (from capital murder) in the killing of Michael Palmer and first degree murder (reduced from capital murder) in the killing of Palmer's daughter, Hannah Dowdie. He was sentenced to 10 years on the manslaughter charge and 40 on the murder charge, to be served concurrently. Piazza nol prossed the arson and kidnapping charges.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
  • Sex on campus

    Look, the Great Campus Rape Crisis was mainly hype all along. What Vice President Joe Biden described as an epidemic of sexual violence sweeping American college campuses in 2011 was vastly overstated.

    LRSD continues to abdicate its responsibility to educate poor black students.
