Hearing on ‘Fatal Vision’ case evidence postponed

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

FAYETTEVILLE, NC (AP) — A hearing for the former Army surgeon convicted of killing his pregnant wife and two daughters at Fort Bragg more than 40 years ago has been postponed until next year.

The Fayetteville Observer reported that the evidentiary hearing for Jeffrey MacDonald set for later this month in Wilmington has been postponed until April 30.

US District Judge James C. Fox on Tuesday rescheduled the hearing so MacDonald can replace his lead lawyers, who say they have a conflict of interest. MacDonald is seeking court-appointed counsel.

He’s serving a federal prison sentence for the 1970 murders. His lawyers say he deserves a new trial because of unidentified DNA recovered from the scene and allegations that a prosecutor coerced a witness into lying.

His case resulted in the book “Fatal Vision.”

Traditional Thanksgiving dinner cost up 13 percent

Thursday, November 10th, 2011

WASHINGTON, DC (AP) — It’s going to cost a bit more to put a traditional Thanksgiving dinner on the table this year.

The American Farm Bureau Federation reported Thursday that a meal with turkey and all the trimmings will cost about 13 percent more this holiday.

It estimates the average cost to make a meal for 10 people is $49.20. That’s $5.73 more than last year’s average of $43.47.

It’s a result of soaring costs for commodities that are raising prices for food makers, grocers and consumers.

The costs for nearly everything from cranberries to pumpkin pie are up. But the biggest price hike is for the main course: a
16-pound turkey costs 4 percent more this year at $21.57.

The classic Thanksgiving meal comes in at about $5 per person
