TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Uber has postponed a show-and-tell of its self-driving vehicles after one was involved in a deadly crash in Arizona. Uber had planned a media event Thursday at its Tempe facility to show off the vehicles and have engineers talk about the push to have vehicles that operate on their own. But on Sunday, police say one of the vehicles struck and killed 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg in a Phoenix suburb.

FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - An Idaho-based company that leases farm land on the Navajo Nation has been fined for failing to post information on pesticides and ensuring workers' protective gear fits properly. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says Navajo Mesa Farms agreed to pay $6,000 to settle four violations from 2013 and 2016.

PHOENIX (AP) - Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey wants more school resource officers and school mental health spending, a new way to remove guns from unstable people and technology fixes to get state convictions into the federal gun background check system faster. But Monday's proposal from the Republican governor falls short of what Democrats and students who have been protesting school shootings want.

PHOENIX (AP) - A transient suspected in a Phoenix homicide has been arrested after police found him at a bus stop trying to leave town. Police say 39-year-old Joshua Leonard is jailed on suspicion of first-degree murder. A $500,000 bond was set Monday at Leonard's initial court appearance. He doesn't have a court-appointed attorney yet. Police say they found 66-year-old Gilbert Allard dead inside an apartment with obvious signs of trauma last Thursday.
