A woman who was removed from a flea-infested home by police last week has died. Officials say Marietta Collins, 74, died at a local hospital yesterday, three weeks after she was removed from her northwest side home. According to officials, Collins suffered from severe flea bites, and had been living in filth for years. Neighbors say they tried to get her help, but it wasn't until she became too ill to move that police and other agencies could step in.

Ex-DA testifies in own defense in bribery trial
May 23, 2013 03:35 GMT
BROWNSVILLE, Texas (AP) -- A former South Texas district attorney charged with helping a crooked judge has testified in his own defense.
Former Cameron County District Attorney Armando Villalobos (vee-yah-LOH'-bohs) was called to testify after federal prosecutors rested in his corruption trial. He told a federal jury in Brownsville that he didn't have the close relationship with Abel Limas that the former state district judge testified that they had.
Villalobos is the highest-profile target to stand trial in a FBI investigation into legal corruption involving Limas, who failed in his 2008 re-election bid. Limas has pleaded guilty to racketeering and awaits sentencing.
Villalobos is to continue his testimony Thursday.
