PHOENIX (AP) - The doctor who performed the autopsy on an Arizona death-row inmate whose execution was prolonged says the intravenous lines were placed correctly. Incorrect placement of lines can inject drugs into soft tissue instead of the blood stream. Dr. Gregory Hess of the Pima County Medical Examiner's Office says he is waiting for the toxicology report before determining the cause of death for Joseph Wood.

PHOENIX (AP) - A Tempe man is in custody for allegedly pointing a loaded AR-15 rifle toward a woman and her teenage daughter inside Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport. Phoenix police say 54-year-old Peter Steinmetz was arrested Friday. He doesn't have a lawyer yet. According to a court document, Steinmetz says he only came to the airport to buy a cup of coffee.

PHOENIX (AP) - The two Republican candidates for Arizona Attorney General traded barbs in a televised debate. Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Brnovich (burn-o-vich) says incumbent AG Tom Horne has been under a "cloud of scandal after scandal." Horne said Brnovich has no achievements he can point to. Whoever wins the Republican primary will face Democrat Felecia Rotellini in November.

Authorities say 28-year-old Gina Rayner, her 30-year-old boyfriend Anthony Vechiola, and 29-year-old Jennifer Duchnowski were seen having sex Sunday night in the apartment's public spa.
