Wyoming News Briefs

VERNON, Conn. (AP) — A man who police say killed his father, a woman and himself in Wyoming told a neighbor in Connecticut weeks before the Friday killings that he believed his father gave him Asperger’s syndrome and said his dad should be “castrated” to prevent him from having more children. Neighbor Matt DiPinto of Vernon, Conn., told reporters on Saturday that Christopher Krumm made the comments while giving him a ride home a few weeks ago.

GILLETTE, Wyo. (AP) — A Gillette man charged with driving a pickup that struck and killed a tow-truck operator has waived his right to a preliminary hearing and will have his case moved to district court. The Gillette News Record reports 28-year-old Justin Lynn Helsper is charged with aggravated vehicular homicide stemming from the Nov. 18 death of 65-year-old Larry G. Schofield. Helsper already has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor charges in the case.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — U.S. Sens. John Barrasso and Mike Enzi are working to maintain ground-based U.S. nuclear missile systems. The two Wyoming Republicans joined other senators in including an amendment to legislation that urges the Obama administration to retain the Intercontinental Ballistic Missile leg of the nation’s nuclear triad. The bipartisan amendment specifically calls on the U.S. Defense Department to maintain its ICBM force and preserve the silos as a reserve force.

LOGAN, Utah (AP) — Federal wildlife officials will hold public meetings in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming on their proposal to buy conservation easements along the Bear River. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service wants to buy up to 920,000 acres from willing sellers at an estimated $745 million. Wildlife service officials say the plan is designed to spare critical wildlife habitat as well as farm and ranch lands from urban sprawl and residential development.
