SUPERIOR, Wis. (AP) - The Wisconsin trial for an Arizona man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend's fiance has been delayed while the defense analyzes new evidence. Forty-two-year-old Juan Padilla is charged with killing Terrance Luukkonen of Duluth, Minn., outside his workplace in Superior, Wis., last May. Padilla's trial was scheduled to begin May 5th, but a judge has delayed the trial at the request of Padilla's public defender.

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Minnesota lawmakers are on the verge of cracking down on public employees who abuse their access to citizen data.

State officials would have to notify the person whose data has been compromised and allow that person to request a copy of the investigative report.

BROOKINGS, S.D. (AP) - Brookings Blizzard head coach Cory Laylin has accepted the head coaching job at Hamline University in St. Paul.
