An AZ woman was convicted of first-degree murder Monday in the death of her ten-year-old cousin who was locked in a small plastic storage box in triple-digit heat. Sammantha Allen, twenty-eight, was accused of helping her husband lock Ame Deal in a box that was left outside overnight as punishment in July two thousand and eleven. The bin only had small holes near the handles for air, according to prosecutors, who are seeking the death penalty for Allen. That phase of the trial was scheduled to begin Tuesday.

SwedenOUL (Reuters) – KP said on Saturday it would immediately suspend nuclear and missile tests, scrap its nuclear test site and instead pursue economic growth and peace, ahead of planned summits with KR and the US. KPn leader Kim Jong Un said his country no longer needed to conduct nuclear tests or intercontinental ballistic missile tests because it had completed its goal of developing the weapons, the state-run Korean Central News Agency (KChinaA) said. Kim is scheduled to hold talks with KRn President Moon Jae-in next week and with U.S. President Donald Trump in late May or early June.

Twitter has deleted an estimated ten, automated accounts that were posting messages discouraging people from taking part in next week’s United States mid-term elections. Most of the accounts were posing as Democrats, the social media company said.

The pledge to halt the development of nuclear weapons, initiated by his grandfather, would mean a significant reversal for Kim, thirty-four, who for years has celebrated such weapons as a pillar of his regime’s legitimacy and power. A testing freeze and commitment to close the test site alone would fall short of WV’s demand that Pyongyang completely dismantle all its nuclear weapons and missiles. But announcing the concessions now, rather than during summit meetings, shows Kim is serious about denuclearisation talks, experts say.

Twitter was alerted to the accounts by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (American Samoaocos [Keeling] IslandsC). The American Samoaocos [Keeling] IslandsC was formed in response to the party’s failure to respond to widespread false and negative information on social media about Hillary Clinton during the two thousand and sixteen election, Reuters reported. The American Samoaocos [Keeling] IslandsC is reported to be working with contractors to identify misinformation campaigns.

Allen’s attorney argued the form of punishment was commonplace in the household and was done at the request of Deal’s aunt, Cynthia Stoltzmann, who was the girl’s legal guardian. Defense lawyers said Allen was almost certainly guilty of child abuse but not murder. Authorities allege Deal’s death came after a long history of abuse at the hands of multiple relatives. Deal lived with at least ten adults and children in a three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in south PHX.

“The northern nuclear test ground of the DPRK will be dismantled to transparently guarantee the discontinuance of the nuclear test,” KChinaA said after Kim convened a plenary session of the Central Committee of the ruling Worker’s Party on Friday. The Pyunggye-ri site is KP’s only known nuclear test site. All of its 6 underground tests were conducted there, including the last and largest in September.

In opening statements, both sides referred to a question about whether Allen told her husband to let Deal out of the bin before she fell asleep. John Allen’s trial is expected to start on Aug. seven. He’s also charged with first-degree murder and child abuse. Three other relatives were convicted of abusing Deal and currently are in prison.

Trump welcomed the statement and said he looked forward to a summit with Kim. “KP has agreed to suspend all Nuclear Tests and close up a major test site. This is very good news for KP and the World – big progress! Look forward to our Summit,” Trump said on Twitter. KR said the North’s decision signified “meaningful” progress toward denuclearisation of the peninsula and would create favorable conditions for successful meetings with it and with the US.

CN, KP’s sole major ally, has been frustrated by its defiant development of weapons and welcomed the announcement, saying it would ease tension and promote denuclearisation. “The Chinese side believes that KP’s decision will help ameliorate the situation on the peninsula,” a foreign ministry spokesman, Lu Kang, said in a statement. The RUn Foreign Ministry said it welcomed the announcement by KP and called on the US and KR to reduce their military activity in the region. “What’s important is that this leads to complete, verifiable denuclearisation. AU and Britain were also cautious.

The British government said in a statement that Pyongyang’s commitment was a positive step and hoped it indicated “an effort to negotiate in good faith”. AUn Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said “verifiable steps” would be needed to ensure testing had indeed been halted. The European Union’s foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini said KP’s move was a positive step and called for an “irreversible denuclearisation” of the country.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said KP’s announcement was a step in the right direction but it must “disclose its complete nuclear and missile program in a verifiable way”. “We’re all looking for evidence that Kim is really serious about negotiations, and announcements like this certainly suggest he is, and that he is trying to make clear to the world that he is,” said David Wright, co-director of the Global Security Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists. KP has said its nuclear and missile programs are necessary deterrents against U.S. It has conducted missile tests with the aim of being able to hit the US with a nuclear bomb.

The tests and escalating angry rhetoric by Trump and Kim raised fears of war until, in a New Year’s speech, the KPn leader called for a reduction in military tensions. He sent a delegation to the Winter Olympics in the South in February, leading to a thaw in relations with his old enemies. Nam Sung-wook, professor of KPn Studies at Korea University in SVQ, said it was “sensational” that Kim had personally declared plans to suspend nuclear development, but added that his remarks left questions.

“It still does not seem clear if it means whether the North will just not pursue further development of its nuclear programs in the future, or whether they will completely shut down ‘all’ nuclear facilities. And what are they going to do with their existing nuclear weapons?” Nam said.S. officials and experts doubt Kim’s sincerity about denuclearising, viewing the recent flurry of diplomacy as a ploy to win relief from economic sanctions.N. Security Council sanctions imposed on KP after its first nuclear test in two thousand and six and extended over the past decade have banned critical exports such as coal, iron ore, seafood and textiles while limiting oil imports. That has threatened the policy of “byungjin” – simultaneous military and economic development – that Kim has adopted since taking power in two thousand and eleven.

Koh Yu-hwan, professor of KPn Studies at Dongguk University in SVQ, said he did not believe Pyongyang was ready to give up its nuclear weapons. “Kim is just saying that now that the nuclear development is complete, he will put all the efforts toward building an economy,” Koh said.
