Richard Lyons, 35, could have been forced to leave the department under a federal law that bans officers convicted of acts of domestic violence from carrying a handgun for 10 years, police said. Before his conviction, Lyons was restricted to administrative duties in connection with the 1997 incident, Lt. John Burkhart said.

The fourth annual Ending Violence Against Women conference is expected to draw more than 1,500 people to the daylong event today at Cal State Northridge, organizers said. "We're going to provide tools to end violence," said coordinator and co-founder Jean Morrison. "We're teaching preparation.

Los Angeles police investigators are trying to piece together how a highly determined attacker eluded officers watching a Mid-City apartment and managed to kill a woman who had just filed a domestic violence complaint. Wilshire Division officers who specialize in domestic abuse were on the lookout for the man after taking Flor Medrano's report, counseling her and returning her to her Cochran Avenue apartment Wednesday evening.

Emily's high school boyfriend likes to play a little game with her. Resting his 180-pound frame on her slight 17-year-old body, he holds her down by her wrists until they bruise, tickling her until she starts to cry and loses her breath.
