Eight people developed infections from a contaminated drug used in open-heart surgery, and two of them died, Bryan Memorial Hospital spokesmen in Lincoln, Neb., said. Susan Frye, a Bryan vice president, said the hospital traced the infection to a solution of glutamate aspartate. The solution is used to paralyze the heart during open-heart surgery. She said the hospital switched to a commercially premixed solution and patients who undergo surgery now are not at risk of infection.

First Melyssa Cowburn's 5-year-old child tried to bash in a baby's head with a hammer. Then he set the shower curtain on fire.

Cowburn and her husband had tried unsuccessfully to get their insurance company to pay for mental health treatment for the boy. The difficulty she had keeping him under control had already helped drive her to attempt suicide last year.
