A three-year sample of accidental child shootings finds North Carolina had one less child die than its much-smaller neighbor South Carolina, while adults more often faced prosecution related to the deaths.
The mother of two university students, Karli and Kelsey Richardson, who died in a wrong-way car crash in April, donned her oldest daughter's graduation cap and gown at Grand Canyon University's commencement ceremony on April 27. Catherine Hocking accepted Karli's diploma in her memory, making the university's hand sign to a standing ovation.
