Jean-Claude ‘Baby Doc’ Duvalier dead at 63

baby Dic Ducalier diesJean-Claude-Duvalier, the self-proclaimed “president for life” of Haiti whose corrupt and brutal regime in the 1970s and 1980s sparked a popular uprising that sent him into a 25-year exile, died Saturday of a heart attack, his lawyer said.

Reynold George said the former leader died at his home. He was 63.

Duvalier, looking somewhat frail, made a surprise return to Haiti in 2011, allowing victims of his regime to pursue legal claims against him and prompting some old allies to rally around him. Neither side gained much support, and the once-feared dictator known as “Baby Doc” spent his late years in relative obscurity in the leafy hills above the Haitian capital.

Missouri judge sides with married same-sex couples

Missouri judge sides with married gaysA judge struck down part of Missouri's gay marriage ban for the first time on Friday by ordering the state to recognize same-sex marriages legally performed in other states, saying state laws banning the unions single out gay couples "for no logical reason."

The order means such couples will be eligible to sign up for a wide range of tax, health insurance, veterans and other benefits now afforded to opposite-sex married couples. Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster, who has defended the state's ban on gay marriage, said his office was reviewing the ruling.
