NEW YORK (AP) - A second, milder wave of flu is hitting the Northeast. Months ago, the flu season seemed to be winding down. But health officials yesterday reported widespread flu-like illnesses in six states. The states are Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island.

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut woman who shot and killed her two young grandsons before committing suicide last year left a note to the boys' parents saying they did not deserve to have the children. The letter described in a police report suggests a vengeful motive for the shootings by 47-year-old Debra Denison. The report was obtained by The Associated Press through a Freedom of Information request. Denison picked up 2-year-old Alton Perry and 6-month-old Ashton Perry at a day care center in North Stonington on in February 2013, drove to a nearby lake and killed them

STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - A woman has pleaded guilty to setting fire to a Stamford home that belonged to her ex-boyfriend's mother. Authorities say 34-year-old Felicia Langley of Norwalk set the fire days after discovering that her ex-boyfriend had married her cousin. The Advocate of Stamford reports that Langley pleaded guilty Wednesday to third-degree arson.

FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Activists hoping to save a Connecticut aviator's house from demolition have been granted at least a temporary reprieve. The delay was prompted by new information that could prove the house of Gustave Whitehead is 100 years old and therefore subject to an ordinance requiring a 60-day stay on demolitions.
