URGENT: Video shows beheading of second American journalist

DUBAI (Reuters) - The Islamic State militant group released a video purporting to show the beheading of U.S. hostage Steven Sotloff, the SITE monitoring service reported on Tuesday. A masked figure in the video also issued a threat against a British hostage, a man the group named as David Haines, and warned governments to back off "this evil alliance of America against the Islamic State", the monitoring service said.

Expert testimony on the stand Wednesday in Baumann OWI homicide trial

MERRILL, Wis. (WSAU) -- Expert testimony was heard Wednesday in the trial against Ashley Baumann in Merrill.

Six witnesses testified on Wednesday. Crash reconstruction expert Thomas Erdman from the Wisconsin State Patrol was on the stand for nearly two hours, explaining how Baumann could have been the only one in the driver's seat. He told the court that the way that the occupants were ejected from the vehicle could only mean that Baumann, who was thrown forward from the car, was behind the wheel at the time of the crash.

Dr. Ken Sullivan from Ministry Good Samaritan Hospital in Merrill told the court he could not determine where people were sitting in the vehicle based on their injuries after Defense attorney Wright Laufenberg questioned him on the injuries from the crash.

State forensic pathologist Dr. Robert Corliss also took the stand and testified that the injuries that Misty Glisch suffered in the crash show that she was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash. Laufenberg tried to press him on the injuries suffered by the other two victims, Jerrica Woller and Jessica Hartwig, claiming that injuries would show that Woller and not Baumann was behind the wheel at the time of the crash, but Corliss stated that there was no evidence to that effect.

The prosecution may call its last witnesses today and rest its case. The jury could start deliberating as soon as Monday.
