The father of Elian Gonzalez is expected to arrive in the United States--perhaps as early as this week--to take custody of his son in a dramatic step that could signal the end of a bitter international dispute over the 6-year-old Cuban child. During a third full day of talks Monday between attorneys for the boy's Miami relatives and the U.S. government, the focus of discussions shifted to the question of how to transfer custody to Juan Miguel Gonzalez, INS spokeswoman Maria Cardona said.

A woman accused of fatally shooting a man who tried to rape her was freed after a judge found her guilty of using excessive force and let her go with a fine. Claudia Rodriguez was fined $256 and ordered to pay $1,538 in damages to the family of the victim, Juan Miguel Cabrera, 27.

The father of young shipwreck survivor Elian Gonzalez, Juan Miguel Gonzalez, was among those on the slate. Castro, dressed in his typical military uniform, cast his ballot as voters chanted "Fidel! Fidel!"
