|Father of Virginia TV reporter slain on air vows to fight for gun control|
By Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The father of a Virginia journalist killed in an on-air shooting said on Thursday he would become a crusader for gun control, but analysts said there was little likelihood of legislation on the federal level any time soon, despite changes in some states. Two journalists, reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward of Roanoke CBS affiliate WDBJ7, were shot during a live interview on Wednesday by a disgruntled former station employee who later killed himself. Parker's father, Andy Parker, urged state and federal lawmakers to take action on gun control, especially to keep firearms out of the hands of people who were mentally unstable.

By Ted Siefer CONCORD, N.H. (Reuters) - The jury in the rape trial of a former student at an elite New Hampshire boarding school began deliberations on Thursday after hearing closing arguments focusing on whether he forced a 15-year-old classmate to have sex or whether she accused him to save her reputation. A county prosecutor said defendant Owen Labrie, 19, told a friend had he had used "every trick in the book" to get the victim to have sex with him. "You only need tricks if someone says no," Assistant Merrimack County Attorney Joseph Cherniske told the jury of 11 men and three women, including two alternates.
