The New Jersey police officer accused of killing a man during an alleged weekend road rage incident was defending his family, his lawyer said Monday. Patrick McAndrew, attorney for Joseph Lamont Walker, 40, said his client had faced an "attack" on the on-ramp to Interstate 97 in Anne Arundel County. Maryland State Police say Walker shot and killed Joseph Harvey Jr., 36, after an altercation on the road. "The second version, the true version, will come out," McAndrew told Annapolis District Court Judge Thomas Pryal at a bail review hearing.

HACKENSACK, N.J. - The framed artwork has come down, the posters are rolled up. The Cuban flag that sat on the mantel is stored away. Rolando Brito is leaving New Jersey for a warmer climate, extended family, and job opportunities in South Florida. When he drives down I-95 in his new black Nissan Altima, Brito will become another of the thousands of Cuban-Americans who have left New Jersey in the last decade. The reasons for the exodus range from relatives and job opportunities in other states to retirement in Florida - the closest that graying Cubans believe they'll ever come to their native island.

WEST NEW YORK, N.J. - A motley pack of seven dogs slept near two gigantic heaters in the cavernous boiler room of a block-long blue building one recent cold evening. Night was falling on the West New York dog pound, better known as the Department of Public Works garage. The garage, where police cars, trucks and street-cleaning machines come and go at all hours, was never intended as an animal shelter. But months ago the town's health department resorted to housing stray dogs there because the shelter in Jersey City, run by the Hudson County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, was full after abruptly adopting a "no kill" policy last year.

A New Jersey police officer accused of the shooting death of another driver in an alleged road-rage incident last summer is trying to get the case dismissed from Anne Arundel County Circuit Court. In a motion filed Tuesday, attorneys for Joseph Lamont Walker dispute the story police and prosecutors gave to the grand jury that indicted the 18-year law enforcement veteran last summer. Walker, a detective with the Hudson County, N.J., prosecutor's office, was indicted by an Anne Arundel County grand jury on first-degree murder and weapons charges in the June 8 death of Joseph Dale Harvey Jr., a 36-year-old truck driver who grew up in Millersville.

BAYONNE, N.J. -- A half-century after the region's last streetcar disappeared to make way for more cars and buses, New Jersey officials are set to open the first leg of a $1.1 billion trolley system along the Hudson River. It will carry 25,000 riders a day, and the entire project, when completed in 2010, is expected to carry more than 100,000 people through the most densely populated region in New Jersey. The Hudson-Bergen Light Rail, which was expected to carry its first fare-paying passenger Saturday, is the metropolitan region's most ambitious public transportation project since the 1960s, the largest public works program in New Jersey history and an intriguing look at the prospects for a transit system long deemed a part of the past.
