    Authorities say a Texas inmate who was serving a life sentence for murder when he escaped from a transport bus last week got out of his restraints and a caged area before stabbing the driver. The Texas Department of Criminal Justice said Wednesday that 46-year-old Gonzalo Lopez is still on the run. Lopez was being transported May 12 to a medical appointment in a caged area of the bus. The department says Lopez freed himself from his hand and leg restraints, cut through the metal of the cage and crawled out through the bottom. Officials say he then attacked the driver.

      Kenosha County Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder accuses prosecutor Thomas Binger of an improper line of questioning of Kyle Rittenhouse during Rittenhouse's homicide trial. Binger said he thought the door was open to his questions because of previous testimony, but the judge rejected that.

        The federal government opened an investigation Wednesday into Texas’ long-troubled juvenile lockups, which currently detain nearly 700 teens who often are found to need heightened supervision or have committed violent crimes.
