ERIE, Pa. (AP) - The wife of a former Pennsylvania Superior Court judge has appealed a federal judge's order that the couple must forfeit their home because some money used to buy it came from a $440,000 insurance fraud for which her husband is serving 46 months in prison.
Senior U.S. District Judge Maurice Cohill Jr. last month agreed federal prosecutors in Pittsburgh could seize ex-judge Michael Joyce's Erie-area home. Now the Erie Times-News says Joanne Joyce wants the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse the forfeiture order, arguing she shouldn't lost her stake in the $295,000 home for a crime she didn't commit.
Judge bans sale
of 'bath salts'
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) - A judge in another northeastern Pennsylvania county has issued an injunction barring the sale of the synthetic drug known as "bath salts."
Luzerne County Judge David Lupas issued a temporary injunction Tuesday morning on the sale of the drug. District Attorney Jacqueline Musto Carroll had sought the ban citing the dangers of the chemicals, which have been linked to a series of recent crimes.
Judges in neighboring Lackawanna County previously issued a similar injunction before the county commissioners instituted a ban last week.
KENNERDELL, Pa. (AP) - An autopsy has confirmed that a Philadelphia-area kayaker drowned when he fell out of the craft in rough waters in the Allegheny River in northwestern Pennsylvania.
Venango County Coroner Tyler Best has ruled 56-year-old William Root's death an accident.
Root, of Aston, was pulled from the river after a fellow kayaker called 911 to report the incident about 3:40 p.m. Sunday. Root died a short time later at UPMC Northwest hospital in Seneca.
Root was kayaking in Rockland Township near Kennerdell.
Best says the autopsy was performed Monday.
