WALKER, Minn. (AP) — A northern Minnesota man has been sentenced to 45 years in prison for fatally shooting his ex-girlfriend. Twenty-two-year-old Kandace Dunn, of Cass Lake, was shot in the head last June while her two young children were in the bedroom they shared.
A Wisconsin judge on Thursday did what thousands of pro-union protesters and boycotting Democratic lawmakers couldn't, forcing Republican Gov. Scott Walker to halt plans to implement a law that would strip most public workers of their collective bargaining rights and cut their pay.
After focusing for weeks on his proposal to strip public employees of collective bargaining rights, Gov.
