The deal for arms is worth about eight billion dollars.       The U.S. Supreme Court is putting a hold on lower court rulings dealing with partisan gerrymandering. The Court is expected to issue a ruling on gerrymandering by Republicans in North Carolina and Democrats in Maryland by the end of June. Lower courts ordered Ohio and Michigan to redraw their maps after finding partisan gerrymandering did take place.       The man who kidnapped a Wisconsin teen and killed her parents is going to spend the rest of his life behind bars.

The sentence comes without the possibility of parole.       Mississippi's "heartbeat" abortion bill is being rejected.
