MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A 75-year-old Milwaukee man is set to appear in court today for a preliminary hearing after authorities accused of him fatally shooting his 13-year-old neighbor. A judge will decide whether there's enough evidence for John Spooner to stand trial for first-degree intentional homicide.

RACINE, Wis. (AP) -- The body of a missing Racine County man was found last night in a pond on his property. Investigators say alcohol likely contributed to the man's death.

WELLINGTON, New Zealand (AP) -- Two 21-year-old Wisconsin college students are safe after spending nine days trapped in the New Zealand wilderness following a snowstorm. Alec Brown and Erica Klintworth are both students from the University of Wisconsin Stevens Point who are studying abroad. They survived by rationing their trail mix and warming themselves in hot springs.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin fisheries experts say a bacterial infection killed thousands of fish in Lake Delton. Thousands of dead black crappie and white suckers washed up on shore last month. The disease can't hurt humans, but state wildlife officials say people don't eat infected fish.
