While Ben Fawley awaits trial on charges of killing Taylor Behl, lawyers learn he's written nearly 50 letters to a female friend expressing his thoughts while in jail. His lawyers are a little worried about how he signed them: "Killerly yours, Ben."



0
Thousands of people rally in Monroe Park over the weekend, the T-D reports, to support easier ways for illegal immigrants to gain citizenship. One idea floated is to enter the country legally.



+2
The School Board seat of Stephen B. Johnson, who resigned after being caught with pot at Richmond International Airport, is filled by Betsy Carr, an outreach director at St. Paul's Episcopal Church. Boring! What's a school board without the sex and drugs?



-1
Mayor Wilder's performing arts committee holds its first press conference, but offers little new information, indirectly answers reporters' questions and generally says to wait until its report comes out May 1. The dance season is kicking off early with a lot of sidestepping.



+1
Gasp! "American Idol" fans see hometown singer Elliott Yamin drop into the show's "bottom three" for the first time. Watch your back, Ace. We've had about enough of your purty boy
