Halloween is almost upon us...and sometimes we carve a little more than pumpkins in our quest to create the perfect jack o'lantern. Emergency Room doctors know when people are carving pumpkins. More of us come to the ER with serious hand injuries due to cuts this time of year.

Convictions in New Albany and Boonville were thrown out on appeal because prosecutors were allowed to introduce prejudicial evidence. Legal analyst Greg Garrison says a lot rides on the argument to be presented by the special prosecutor in the case, former Vanderburgh County Prosecutor Stan Levco.
