Prose­cu­tors will seek a life sen­tence for a sub­ur­ban Chicago man ac­cused of beat­ing a 4-year-old girl to death after she spilled juice on an Xbox video con­sole. Johnathan Fair, 19, of Waukegan, was babysit­ting his girl­friend’s daugh­ter, Sky­lar Men­dez, on De­cem­ber 13 when she was fa­tally in­jured. He brought her to a hos­pi­tal and ini­tially claimed she’d fallen. She died a few days later.

A shop­ping cen­tre in a sub­urb of Salt Lake City, Utah, was closed after a gun­man opened fire and wounded two peo­ple. The Fash­ion Place mall said the shoot­ing hap­pened out­side the cen­tre. In Phoenix, Ari­zona, po­lice say a shoot­ing out­side a mo­tel left a young woman dead and five oth­ers wounded by gun­fire.
