In a videotape played for jurors Tuesday, Maria del Rosio Alfaro told sheriff's investigators that she repeatedly stabbed a 9-year-old girl to death to eliminate her as a witness to a robbery. Prosecutors said Autumn Wallace was stabbed 50 times in the bathroom of the Anaheim home that she shared with her mother and older sister, neither of whom was at home during the attack on June 15, 1990.

Walton Goggins, who starred in the crime drama "The Shield" from 2002 to 2008, is putting his remodeled Hollywood Hills home on the market for $1,175,000. Goggins re-created the three-bedroom, three-bathroom house to blend traditional and modern elements and establish seamless indoor-outdoor flow while retaining the home's original form. "The bones were there," he said of the 1960s house. Born in Alabama, the actor came to Los Angeles from Georgia in 1991. "I moved 14 times in 11 years," he said of his early years as an actor.

A 16-year-old Oklahoma girl gave birth today in the bathroom of a Senate office building while the group she was with toured the Capitol. "Last I heard she was doing fine," Capitol Police spokesman Dan Nichols said. "She walked out of the bathroom carrying the baby." Nichols said the Blanchard, Okla., girl, whose name was not released, went into a bathroom on the ground floor of the Senate Dirksen office building about 8 a.m. and gave birth. The group's chaperon, Don Grabbe, and Debora Brooke, a Capitol Police sergeant, helped deliver the 4-pound, 5-ounce baby boy.

To organizing expert Linda Koopersmith, there is one overriding principle when it comes to cosmetics: Don't buy more than you need. Then don't be afraid to use what you have. "Makeup has a shelf life. If you don't use it, it will go bad like spoiled food," she says. "If you wouldn't eat moldy bread, why would you put bad mascara on your eyes?" To make it easier to know what you have and to find products quickly, there is nothing like a well-organized cache of supplies. And Koopersmith, owner of Beverly Hills Organizer and former resident organizer on the television show "Clean House," literally wrote the book on it: "The Beverly Hills Organizer's Home Organizing Bible: A Pro's Answers to Your Organizing Prayers."

A blend of steel, copper and glass frames a Santa Monica Canyon contemporary built by Los Angeles architects Mark Cigolle and Kim Coleman originally as a live-work space for their young family. Constructed in 1992, the house features a top-level atelier that can be used as an office, a gym or an art gallery. A sliding glass door leads to a deck with an outdoor shower, and across to a guest suite with a bathroom. Below are family living spaces and bedrooms. The neighborhood, known as an artists' and entertainment-industry enclave, offers direct access to the beach and the canyon forests nearby.

I thought having to endure cell phones at the beach was a nuisance ("Withdrawing Into Our Cells," Sept. 19). After all, isn't the beach a place to get away from it all? But this week, as I sat in a bathroom stall (one of the few semiprivate places left in life), the woman in the stall next to me received a cell call. She answered it, started talking to the person on the other end and laughingly stated that she was in a stall in the ladies' bathroom. Yikes! Please, it's one thing if you choose to sit on a toilet and talk to someone that you feel comfortable enough doing that (preferably in your home)
