Jury deliberations continue today in former President Trump's hush money trial in New York. Jurors deliberated for four and a half hours yesterday. Trump faces 34 felony counts of falsifying business records in connection to alleged hush money payments made just prior to the 2016 election.        The World Central Kitchen is pausing operations in the southern Gaza city of Rafah. The organization said the pause is due to ongoing attacks in the city. Israel resumed its strikes on Rafah on Wednesday after an airstrike killed dozens of civilians over the weekend. This comes after the World Central Kitchen just recently started up its operations in Gaza again after an Israeli airstrike killed seven aid workers in April.        Over a dozen states are urging a federal probe into the Texas murder of a Black Lives Matter protester. A letter from 13 Democratic attorneys general, dated yesterday, is calling for the Department of Justice to investigate the death of Garrett Foster. Foster was shot in 2020 during a Black Lives Matter protest in Austin by Daniel Perry, who was convicted of murder and sentenced to 25 years in prison. Earlier this month, Texas Governor Greg Abbott granted a full pardon to Perry, claiming he was protected by the state's "stand your ground" law.        A motion from Scott Peterson's defense team for new or additional DNA testing in his case is being mostly denied. On Wednesday, a California judge denied the request for all but one item, which was duct tape recovered from clothing from his late wife, Laci, during her autopsy. Peterson is trying to clear his name 20 years after being convicted of murdering his wife and unborn son.        Vice President Harris is in Colorado Springs for today's U.S. Air Force Academy graduation. Harris will be speaking at the commencement ceremony, the first for her at USAFA.        The Scripps National Spelling Bee finals are tonight. Eight finalists will compete for the title from National Harbor, Maryland.
