A helicopter carrying an ABC television correspondent and a producer to cover a meatpackers strike at Geo. A. Hormel & Co.'s Austin plant crashed today in thick fog, killing the ABC employees and the pilot, authorities said.

The Odyssey Helicopter Service in St. Paul, which leased the helicopter, withheld the pilot's name.

A Texas man is likely to be released from custody Tuesday, nearly 20 years after he was imprisoned for two murders that he and his supporters say he did not commit. Daniel Villegas' case has galvanized support among hundreds of people in El Paso - including two men who survived the shooting and the foreman of the jury that convicted him - and has drawn national attention to the number of suspects who falsely confess to crimes. Villegas, now 36, has been serving a life prison term since a jury convicted him in 1995 of killing Robert England, 18, and Armando Lazo, 17. An appellate court vacated the conviction in December, and on Monday, District Judge Sam Medrano set a bond hearing for Tuesday.

Joe Spencer doesn't analyze things. Ask him "why" or "how come" questions and he looks up at the ceiling for an answer. He never had a grand plan for himself. But in a way, Spencer is like an explorer who moves from one big experience to another with zest and commitment. "If I get something out of it, fine. If not, I'm out of it," he says.

The fifth annual Hollywood Film Festival opens Friday at the Paramount Studio Theater with the U.S. premiere of Christopher Monger's breezy but conventional "Girl From Rio," which takes too long to get off the ground but has a clever finish. Hugh Laurie plays an ineffectual London banker with a passion for samba who eventually gets caught up in romance and adventure in Rio, where he pursues the girl of his dreams (Vanessa Nunes).
