Hundreds
of protesters gathered outside of the federal courthouse in Milwaukee yesterday,
protesting the acquittal of George Zimmerman. The protest was part of a national
chain of rallies over the weekend, calling for "Justice for Trayvon Martin".
Protesters at the event say they demand federal civil rights charges be filed
against Zimmerman and that changes are made to self-defense laws. 32 states,
including Wisconsin, have some form of the stand-your-ground law.

A crash
in Central Wisconsin claims the lives of two women. The Portage County Sheriff's
Department says the two women, 21-year-old Melissa Peterson and 21-year-old
Stephanie Eberhardt, are both from Wisconsin Rapids. Authorities say they were
in the back seat of a pickup truck, when it left the road and crashed into
trees. The incident happened around 2:00 yesterday morning. Another passenger, a
21-year-old man, was airlifted to a hospital in serious condition. The
22-year-old driver was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence of
alcohol.

Authorities
have identified a boy who drowned in a river on Thursday. Police say 8-year-old
Shane Needles, of Nashotah, was pulled from the Oconomowoc River by first
responders who performed C-P-R on the boy. He later died at a nearby hospital.
Police say Needles was with a group of people visiting Riverside Park when his
chaperone noticed he went missing.

The
family pastor of a 2-year-old boy who was found dead in a car trunk says the
keys were with the boy. Reverend Rick Van Gundy says the family of Isaiah Theis
told him about the keys, but did not want to give more information because of
the sensitive situation. Theis went missing on Tuesday night, he was found dead
in the trunk of a car on Wednesday night. Authorities say the boy likely died of
hyperthermia due to the heat. Van Gundy told a television station that he looked
inside the same vehicle on Tuesday night, but did not think to unlock the trunk.
Authorities continue to investigate the incident.
