Ralph Goad faces up to life in prison without the possibility of parole at his sentencing set for Oct. 2. The Washoe District Court jury found him guilty following a weeklong trial in the death of 76-year-old Theodore Gibson in his Reno apartment. Detectives say there were signs of a struggle in the room where Gibson's body was found along with his empty wallet, a blood-stained knife and blood-stained pair of scissors.

Missing WikiLeaks associate had kayak accident in Norway: police
A Dutch WikiLeaks associate who went missing under mysterious circumstances a year ago probably had a kayaking accident, Norwegian police said Friday, adding that his body had not yet been found.
"The child endangerment charges relate to the couple’s overall neglect, abandonment, and failure to protect and provide for their eight (8) children, whose ages ranged from one month to 12 years of age," the DA's office said in a news release.
The murder counts, however, were dropped because there was insufficient evidence to prove the twins died, that they died by homicide, and that Weddles and Canez-Walker were the ones who killed their children.
Authorities continue to ask the public's help finding Sentina and Ren.
