WASHINGTON - A key Republican member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee suggested yesterday that he might oppose John R. Bolton as U.N. ambassador if more allegations come out about the nominee's character and behavior. That could result in a tie vote in the committee and endanger President Bush's choice to head the U.S. delegation to the international body. As the committee vote scheduled for tomorrow nears, Sen. Chuck Hagel, a Nebraska Republican, said he remains concerned about a series of accusations questioning Bolton's temperament and wondered whether he was the right man for the job. "We need a uniter," Hagel said on CNN's Late Edition.

HOUSTON -- Five years after Andrea Yates drowned her five children in the bathtub of her suburban home, a jury is hearing evidence for the second time on the question of her criminal responsibility for the deaths. Yates, 41, was convicted of capital murder in 2002, but an appeals court threw out the case, ruling that the erroneous testimony of a key prosecution witness might have prejudiced the jury. During opening statements in her retrial yesterday, defense attorney George Parnham told the jury that Yates was seriously mentally ill and thought that Satan was living inside her. The only way to keep him from getting her children, she believed, was to kill them while they were still innocent.
