Man Captured in Killing
Of Pa. Teen's Parents
BELLEVILLE, Ind. -- A man wanted in a Pennsylvania double homicide and the apparent abduction of Kara Beth Borden, 14, was captured Monday after a car he was driving crashed in Indiana after a police pursuit, state police said. Borden was found with him, unharmed.
State Police 1st Sgt. Dave Bursten said David Ludwig, 18, was apprehended about 12:30 p.m. after the car he was driving crashed about 20 miles west of Indianapolis.
Police in Pennsylvania said Ludwig, who apparently was Borden's boyfriend, killed her parents, Michael F. and Cathryn Lee Borden, both 50, early Sunday after they and their daughter argued about her curfew. The shootings happened at the family's home near Lititz in Warwick Township, about 60 miles west of Philadelphia.
Police Chief William Seace said earlier that authorities were operating on the assumption that the teen had been kidnapped.
Borden's 13-year-old sister, Katelyn, told investigators her father and mother were shot after they argued with Ludwig for about an hour, according to a police affidavit filed in court.
Police issued an arrest warrant late Sunday for Ludwig on two counts of criminal homicide, one count of reckless endangerment and one count of kidnapping.

* GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- A 37-year-old woman has been charged with child molestation for allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old boy whom she married last week. The Gainesville Times quoted unidentified members of the boy's family as saying that Lisa Lynnette Clark is pregnant with the boy's child and that they were married Tuesday.

* FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Husband-and-wife doctors Chad Livdahl and Zahra Karim pleaded guilty Monday to federal charges involving the distribution of a dangerous knockoff of the anti-wrinkle treatment Botox. A third defendant, Bach McComb, pleaded guilty last week to providing unapproved drugs. Prosecutors said McComb injected himself, his girlfriend and two other people with bootleg Botox last year from another source, causing severe health problems, including paralysis. The substance turned out to be a much stronger form of the botulism bacteria than the type in real Botox. The Arizona doctors allegedly sold the fake product to more than 200 doctors nationwide. More than 1,000 patients were injected with it.
* LOS ANGELES -- The greater Los Angeles region surpassed Houston and the San Joaquin Valley as the nation's smog capital, in part because of a change in the method of ranking, federal officials said. Air quality in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties exceeded the Environmental Protection Agency's smog standard on 84 days this year, the agency said. The EPA considers the totals to be final numbers for 2005 because the smog season runs from May through September.
