CARTHAGE, Texas (AP) — A former mortician whose killing of a rich widow shook an East Texas town and later inspired a movie was released on bond Tuesday after the district attorney who prosecuted him agreed to let him out of a life sentence.
Bernie Tiede was set free after a judge who recommended his prison term be reduced set a $10,000 bond. A state criminal appeals court must sign off on the sentence reduction while Tiede is out on bond.
The now-55-year-old Tiede, who was well liked in the close-knit community of Carthage, was convicted in the death of his longtime companion, Marjorie Nugent. The 81-year-old widow had a reputation among townspeople as a crotchety cheapskate. The case inspired the 2012 dark comedy “Bernie” starring Jack Black in the title role and Shirley MacLaine as Nugent.

The drama student was going to her classes that bright Sunday morning when a mortar shell fired from rebel positions on the outskirts of the Syrian capital struck the pavement inside the complex yard, next to an entrance door used by performers.

NEW YORK (AP) — On a night championing free expression and featuring speeches by Salman Rushdie, Toni Morrison and two members of the Russian protest group Pussy Riot, no one moved the audience more than the daughter of an imprisoned Chinese dissident.
Jewher Ulham, daughter of Ilham Tohti, spoke with emotion, firmness and acknowledged nervousness Monday at the annual gala of PEN American Center. She accepted the PEN/Barbara Goldsmith of Expression Award on behalf of her father, a scholar arrested in January and charged with inciting separation among China’s ethnic Uighurs.
