HONOLULU (AP) — Six recruiters were accused Thursday of luring 400 laborers from Thailand to the United States and forcing them to work, according to a federal indictment that the FBI called the largest human-trafficking case ever charged in U.S. history.
A Clay County District Court grand jury has indicted Clarence Michael Burcham on a charge of first-degree murder in the death of Sharon Stafford 16 years ago.
Clay County Attorney Brian Melton said he is aware of only one penalty for someone convicted of first-degree murder in Minnesota: life in prison.
The grand jury met in secret for about 2 1/2 days before handing down the indictment late Wednesday afternoon.
