Kornheiser rebuked for Storm comments

Kornheiser announced the suspension on his Washington, D.C., radio show Tuesday morning, calling his remarks about Storm intemperate and stupid.

Williams sentenced to 5 years in prison
Former NBA star Jayson Williams was sentenced to five years in prison for fatally shooting a hired limo driver in 2002, ending an eight-year legal odyssey by tearfully apologizing to the victim's family.
He will be eligible for parole in 18 months.
Williams, avoiding a retrial on a reckless manslaughter count that deadlocked the jury at his 2004 trial, pleaded guilty last month to aggravated assault in the death of Costas Christofi on Feb. 14, 2002. At the same 2004 trial, he was acquitted of aggravated manslaughter but convicted on four counts of covering up the shooting.
The sentences on the assault and cover-up counts will run concurrently.
