Hockey legend Red Kelly dies at 91

Hockey legend Red Kelly dies at 91 TORONTO — Hockey Hall of Famer Leonard (Red) Kelly, who won eight Stanley Cups during a stellar 20-season, has died at 91. A statement from Kelly's family said the former Red Wings and Maple Leafs star died Thursday morning in Toronto. The flying redhead spent nearly 13 seasons with the Detroit as a defenceman, helping the Red Wings win Stanley Cup titles in 1950, 1952, 1954 and 1955. A trade to the Maple Leafs gave birth to the second half of his career as a centre for the next eight years. He led the Leafs to Cup titles in 1962, '63, '64 and '67 — the last NHL championship in franchise history.

CHICAGO — R. Kelly spent much of Wednesday in court, with his lawyer explaining to one judge that the singer didn't respond to a lawsuit brought by one of his sexual abuse accusers because he is illiterate and with Kelly paying $62,000 in back child support during a second hearing.

At the first hearing, Judge Moira Johnson vacated a default judgment she made against Kelly after the singer failed to respond to a lawsuit brought by one of the four women he's charged with sexually abusing. Johnson reinstated the lawsuit after one of Kelly's attorneys explained that the singer was in jail when he was served with the lawsuit documents and that Kelly didn't respond because he can't read.

Vigil marks 25 years since Kelly Lynn Stewner was killed in broad daylight on Portage Ave.

Vigil marks 25 years since Kelly Lynn Stewner was killed in broad daylight on Portage Ave. Dozens of family members and friends stood silent at a busy intersection in Winnipeg Monday evening, heads bowed in a moment of silence for the young woman who was killed there in broad daylight 25 years ago. Kelly Lynn Stewner was a month from her 24th birthday when she was murdered by her estranged husband, Bruce Stewner, on May 6, 1994. Debra Peary, Kelly's sister, remembers Kelly as a bright, brave woman who loved children and animals. Peary recalled how Kelly would bring Peary's young son to the convenience store where she worked and stand behind the counter with him on her hip, giving him change to hand over to customers.

The second hearing, which pertained to child support, came weeks after the judge in that case ordered Kelly to jail after finding him in contempt of court for failing to pay $161,000 in back child support to his ex-wife, who is the mother of his three children. Kelly remained locked up for three days until he raised the back child support.

"He's not a deadbeat dad," Kelly's attorney Lisa Damico told reporters after Wednesday's hearing, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. "All he wants to do is do right by his kids."

Kelly's bookings for performances began drying up following the airing of a television documentary "Surviving R. Kelly." That was weeks before his February arrest on charges accusing him of sexually abusing a woman and three girls over roughly a 10-year period starting in the late 1990s. But on Tuesday, one his attorneys told reporters that he was lining up performances for the Grammy award-winning R&B singer in Illinois and outside the state, and that he anticipated the judge approving requests to travel to make those appearances.

No new trial for Travis Vader, appeal court rules.
Convicted killer Travis Vader's bid for a new trial has been rejected by the Alberta Court of Appeal. "We see no prejudice having befallen the appellant as a consequence of the trial judge's analysis, and no benefit in a retrial to test again whether the appellant should have been convicted of manslaughter," the appeal court said in a judgment released Friday. In January 2017, Vader was sentenced to life in prison for manslaughter in the deaths of St. Albert couple Lyle and Marie McCann.
