State police confirmed that Tierne Ewing, 48, was found dead, and that her estranged husband and accused abductor, Kevin Ewing, was found alive. He was flown to a hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries. It was not immediately clear how he was injured.

Police said Tierne Ewing was taken from a home on Blockhouse Run Road in West Finley Township by 47-year-old Kevin Ewing at about 12:30 a.m. Tuesday. Authorities said the home belongs to Kevin Ewing's parents and that Tierne Ewing had been staying with them.

Around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, police converged on Walnut Valley Road in West Finley Township, where they believed Kevin Ewing was armed and hiding in a barn. The scene was tense when Channel 11 News arrived, but authorities began to clear the scene just before 11 p.m. Moments later, Tierne Ewing was confirmed dead.

Police have revealed few details about why the alleged abduction occurred, but online court records show an arrest warrant was issued for Kevin Ewing on kidnapping, terroristic threats, weapons charges and other crimes.

Police said the pair was traveling in a gray Hyundai Veloster with Pennsylvania registration KCS-2340, which Channel 11's Cara Sapida reported was found earlier in the day by investigators. There was no sign of the Tierne Ewing or Kevin Ewing at the time. 

Kevin Ewing is previously accused of holding Tierne Ewing hostage for 12 days in July, when police said he repeatedly beat and burned her. She had a protection-from-abuse order against him.

He had been wearing an electronic monitoring bracelet, but police said he cut it off before Tuesday's alleged abduction. Sapida learned that no one was notified when the ankle bracelet was cut.

The teens who saw it happen say they still can't believe it.

"He was like, 'Oh, hey, there's a little boy,' " said Brianna Jones. "And so I thought a little boy is up there by himself, so I was like, 'What?' And I turned around."

"So my first thing," her friend Kaylub Fawley said, "I was just like, 'OK, got to get some video.'"

Kaylub, 18, and Brianna, 19, said that since childhood, they have played in the water beneath the railroad bridge known as one of the Twin Bridges in Montesano. 

But for a moment last Wednesday, they thought they might be witnessing a tragedy.

"And then that's when the guy was going like this," Brianna said, swinging her arms. "Getting ready to toss him, and the second time, he tossed him."

"He went right in the water, landed neck-first down in there," Kaylub said. "Soon as he popped back up, just screaming bloody murder. On the way down, the mom's screaming, 'Whoo-hoo.' "

Kaylub and his friends ran over to the boy and his mother.

"Started yelling at her," Brianna said. "And she's like, 'He's my kid. I can do whatever I want with him.' "

The teens called 911.

"That kid's lucky to be alive, the way he landed on his neck like that," Kaylub said. "Especially from 27 feet off a bridge. That's not good."

"I don't even jump off that bridge," Brianna said. "I'm scared, too."

Now, the Grays Harbor County prosecutor is reviewing the case.

What, Brianna was asked, does she want the prosecutor to decide?

"I want the mom to be charged," she said. "I want CPS to be involved. The child needs to be taken away from her because I don't even have kids and I know that's wrong."

Kaylub posted the video on Facebook. It has now been viewed more than 665,000 times.

Grays Harbor County Prosecutor Katie Svoboda got the case about noon Tuesday. She says she wants to spend a bit of time making this decision.  

Svoboda says she could decide Wednesday whether to file charges.

School district in Massachusetts trying out year of no homework

Several elementary schools in Holyoke are trying out a new way to get students to do more work: eliminating homework.

The plan comes as school days are being extended by two hours as part of the state receivership program to help transform the "chronically under-performing" district.

The idea was proposed by Principal Jackie Glasheen, according to Western Mass. News.

"Some people think it's a crazy idea,” Kelly said. "We really want our kids to go home at 4:00 tired.  We want their brain to be tired. We want them to enjoy their families, to go to soccer and football practice.”

Western Mass. News says this is a one-year pilot program at several schools and will be evaluated next summer.

Waitress still serving up smiles at age 91

The Saratoga has been a fixture of the community in Terre Haute since 1942.

Though some things have changed around the restaurant and bar, one thing has remained constant for more than 40 years – Betty Azar.

Betty walked into The Saratoga in 1975, and has worked there ever since.

“One day Abey called me and … said come on we just want you to try, and if you like it stay,” Azar told WTHI-TV. “He gave me a table of 10, I’ll never forget that front table 10. I waited on them and he said now you want to work, and I said I guess so.”

Azar has been putting smiles on customers’ faces ever since.

At age 91, Azar is showing no signs of slowing down. She said what keeps her going is the people.

“I love it here and I love the people, I love the customers. All the customers have always been so nice to me,” Azar said.

Azar’s daughter married into the family that owns the restaurant, and now Azar works side-by-side with her granddaughter Alexis.

“Every day I think to myself, when I’m her age I hope I can be doing what she’s doing because she’s so happy, she loves it, she looks forward to it,” Alexis said.

Because of her age, Azar only works on Thursday afternoons now. And customers go out of their way to make sure they go to The Saratoga on Thursdays just to see her.

“This is something she looks forward to and wants to do and I think it keeps her young, I really do,” Alexis said. “I really think it's special that we get to work together, and I know that when that time comes that we can’t anymore it’s going to be really hard.”

But until then, Azar will deliver her food with a good laugh and an infectious smile.

Report: Trump considering trip to Mexico Wednesday to meet with Pena Nieto

The Washington Post is reporting that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is considering a trip to Mexico Wednesday, hours before he is scheduled to give a major speech on immigration.

The Post story says  Trump is considering a meeting with Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto. The meeting would take place in advance of a speech many see as an attempt to clarify his stance on undocumented aliens.

According to a report from Reuters, Pena Nieto said earlier in the month he would meet with Trump, despite the fact he has compared the New York billionaire with Adolf  Hitler and Italian dictator Benito Mussolini.

"Yes, I would meet with him," Pena Nieto said, referring to Trump in a pre-taped television interview broadcast on Tuesday night.

"I have never met him. I can't agree with some of the things he has said, but I will be absolutely respectful and will seek to work with whomever becomes the next president of the United States."

According to the Post story, the possibility of a trip was first raised with the U.S. embassy in Mexico City earlier this week, a source said. 

Trump is set to give his speech in Phoenix at 6 p.m. local time. 

Florida woman records close bear encounter, leads to warning from state agency

A Seminole County woman recorded her close encounter with a black bear, prompting Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to warn residents that the bears have become too accustomed to people.

The woman was sitting in her driveway in the Markham Woods area of the county, which FWC said has an abundant bear population.

The video shows the bear walking up to the woman, sniffing her knee and coming close to her face, before calmly walking away.

No one was injured.

The video was turned over to FWC Tuesday.

FWC said bear biologists are conducting a site visit to check on bears in the area.

FWC officers want to urge residents to never get close to bears or allow bears to get close to humans.

“While we are glad that no one was injured during the interaction captured on video, if this was an area where children were playing, the situation could have quickly turned tragic,” FWC said in a release. “People should be mindful that black bears are highly unpredictable, wild animals.”

FWC said there have been four people seriously injured by bears in Seminole County since 2012.

“The video of this very large bear demonstrates that it has obviously lost its fear of humans, most likely because it has learned that food is available in this area,” FWC said. “We urge Floridians to contact us immediately if they see a bear who is exhibiting this kind of behavior. Normal bear behavior is to avoid people.”

Chris Brown released on $250K bail after standoff, arrest

UPDATE, 12:31 a.m. PDT Wednesday: Singer Chris Brown was released from jail late Tuesday after posting $250,000 bail, KNBC reports.

"Thanks to everyone for their support and well wishes," Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, tweeted. "Chris is out and well. The allegations against him are demonstrably false #TeamBreezy"

Read the original story below.

Singer Chris Brown has been arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon following an alleged confrontation with a woman at his Los Angeles home, according to The Associated Press, citing Los Angeles police.

KNBC reported the arrest comes after what is being called a 10-hour standoff between Brown and officers with the Los Angeles Police Department.

KTLA reported that Brown refused to come out of his home when police arrived.

Brown posted explicit videos to his Instagram profile about the incident early Tuesday morning, saying he did nothing wrong.

NBC News reported that the investigation involved a felony assault with a deadly weapon report early Tuesday, when police responded to a 3 a.m. 911 call from a woman.

Police said at a 1 p.m. news conference that they obtained a search warrant, which the Los Angeles Times reported police obtained to search Brown's home for a weapon the woman said was used to threaten her.

TMZ Live spoke with the woman who they said was the alleged victim, Baylee Curram, who said she has partied with the singer before. According to Curram, Brown pointed a gun when she was admiring a diamond cross necklace in the singer's home.

"I don’t know if it was Chris’ friend or how he was related, but that’s when he told me to back away from the diamond necklace and started cussing me out and calling me names," Curram told the L.A. Times. "That’s when Chris pulled his gun and told me to get out."

Police said Brown was being taken to LAPD headquarters, where he will be arrested, according to KNBC.

Woman suffers miscarriage, 'humiliated' trying to return items to Babies 'R' Us

A woman in Waterbury, Connecticut, said she was humiliated and hurt when she made returns at a Babies "R" Us.

Jessica Huchko told WFSB that she and her husband were expecting a baby boy but miscarried.

>> Read more trending stories

Huchko said that prior to the miscarriage, she and her husband already had most of what they needed after having three girls, but went to Babies "R" Us to get the latest of some items.

"We pretty much had everything, but with car seats and strollers, you have to update them every five years," Huchko said.

But having those items around after the miscarriage was difficult.

"Every time I would see them, I would either get mad or upset. I needed them out of the house," Huchko told WFSB.

So Huchko went to Babies "R" Us to to return the items to the store. She said she did not have a receipt, which is against store policy. Huchko said that both items were still in the box and she had the debit card she used to pay for them.

"I guess I didn't give (the employee) a good enough answer, so she asked, 'Why are you returning this?' And it triggered something inside of me," Huchko told WFSB.

She said in a Facebook post Thursday that when she told an employee the reason for returning her items, she became overwhelmed and started to cry.

"(The employee) was obviously mortified for asking and continued to do the return. While we were standing there, many people had started to line up behind me. I was so emotional I could not stop crying," Huchko wrote. "I became nervous now that so many people were watching me cry while she was looking up the product. She must have scanned the items over 20 times and could not find them in the system anywhere. All I wanted to do was leave."

Huchko said eventually a manager had to step in, who, according to Huchko's post, could not locate the stroller in the system and could only offer the mother half the price of the car seat.

WFSB reported that the manager allegedly offered Huchko pennies for the $179 stroller.

"(The manager) turned around and said, 'It's coming up as two cents.' I said, 'So you're offering me two cents for a double stroller?' It was worse than a slap in the face," Huchko said. "Now I have to try and control myself while there's a huge line forming behind me."

"We are deeply sorry for her experience in our store, and more importantly for her loss,"  Babies "R" Us said in a statement Monday. "The store leadership has provided coaching to the team members to help ensure similar situations are handled with more care in the future."

Huchko is hoping for a change in store policy. She said the store manager called her Monday and offered to give her the rest of the balance owed for returning the stroller.
