BOISE, Idaho (AP) — A woman sentenced to life in prison after being convicted of killing a 2-year-old child will get a hearing that could lead to a new trial. The Idaho Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled a lower court wrongly rejected Katherine Stanfield’s request for post-conviction relief based on ineffective assistance from her attorney.

PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) — A man has been reunited with his cat more than two months after she slipped out of his car at an eastern Oregon rest area. The East Oregonian reports Antonio Martinez stopped at the Deadman Pass rest area east of Pendleton during his move from Texas to Beaverton. He says that’s when his tabby cat Korra slipped out. Last week, a motorist headed home to Aberdeen, Washington, stopped at the rest area and spotted Korra. Robert Holt says he used a ham sandwich to lure the feline into his car.

CALDWELL, Idaho (AP) — An Idaho man convicted of felony terrorism was sentenced to 15 years in prison for making fake bomb threats in Nampa. Prosecutors say 22-year-old Grant Stevenson was sentenced Monday, with three years to be served before he is eligible for parole. Stevenson was arrested after Nampa police received social media messages in March warning of multiple bombs. Police were forced to ask a neighborhood to shelter in place for about six hours.

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho’s governor has called for a third-party assessment of Lake Coeur d’Alene’s water quality as the tribe that owns a third of the lake backs out of a joint monitoring project. The Coeur d’Alene Press reported Republican Gov. Brad Little wrote to the Coeur d’Alene Tribe requesting data compiled since 1996 when the tribe and state began collaborating to track toxins and produce plans to reduce pollutants. The tribal chairman says the plans have not helped reduce pollutants.
