ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A federal judge has determined there's probable cause for prosecutors to pursue their case against a man accused of gunning down a police officer on the nation's largest American Indian reservation. Kirby Cleveland is charged with killing Navajo Nation Officer Houston James Largo on March 11 following what authorities call a drinking binge and domestic violence at the defendant's home in western New Mexico. Largo was responding to the call when he was shot. He later died from his injuries at a hospital.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The head of New Mexico's child welfare agency is frustrated that a string of measures aimed at closing loopholes and toughening penalties for those convicted of child abuse and similar crimes failed to reach Gov. Susana Martinez's desk. The 60-day legislative session wrapped up March 18. Left on the agenda were bills that Monique Jacobson, secretary of the Children, Youth and Families Department, said would have increased accountability for those who hurt children.

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — A company that formerly provided medical services to New Mexico prison inmates is appealing court orders for disclosure of certain records and for payment of legal fees of two newspapers and an advocacy group seeking the records. The Santa Fe New Mexican (https://goo.gl/yLFtAy ) reports that state District Judge Raymond Ortiz ruled this month that Corizon Health must pay $37,535 to attorneys for the New Mexican, the Albuquerque Journal and the Foundation for Open Government.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Albuquerque police vehicles could soon be equipped with the anti-overdose drug naloxone. The City Council voted Monday to equip at least half of the police department's vehicles with the drug by Sept. 30, with the remaining vehicles getting them by the end of the year. Mayor Richard Berry still needs to approve the resolution, which speeds up deadlines for implementing a naloxone program the council previously approved in October. The City Council has approved $10,000 for the naloxone program.

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Stark choices lie ahead for New Mexico about which residents continue to receive Medicaid coverage and to what extent if congressional Republicans enact a plan to overhaul Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act, according to first detailed analysis from the state with the nation's second-highest poverty rate.

Two men who were born in Germany but don't have German citizenship will be deported to countries in North Africa, where their parents immigrated from, over suspicions that they were planning a terrorist attack. German officials say it's the first time the government is making such a move.

For the last 20 years, Americans have been having a conversation about sustainable seafood that was largely focused on fish purchased at restaurants or fresh seafood counters. Armed with seafood guides, thoughtful customers were encouraged to pose questions about where their fish was caught and what type of gear was used — questions that are far trickier to pose in front of a wall of canned tuna in the middle of a supermarket.
