WARWICK, R.I. (AP) - The Cranston Police Department says 22-year-old Travone Green of Providence was arrested Tuesday morning for stealing an SUV taken during an armed carjacking on April 20 in Massachusetts. He was arraigned this afternoon in the Third District Court in Warwick. Officers noticed a 2006 Toyota Highlander with Massachusetts registration parked in Cranston shortly before 4 a.m. An investigation of the stolen vehicle and interviews with nine witnesses led to Green, who was wanted for armed robbery.

BOSTON (AP) - The estranged husband of former Massachusetts Senate President Stan Rosenberg has pleaded not guilty to sexual assault and other charges. Bryon Hefner was released on personal recognizance Tuesday after his appearance in Suffolk Superior Court to face charges of sexual assault, distributing nude photos without consent and criminal lewdness. He was ordered to stay away from the alleged victims and the Massachusetts State House.

QUINCY, Mass. (AP) - The chief justice of the highest court in Massachusetts says a court clerk's oversight that allowed the release of a rape suspect who later fled the country was the result of a "mistake" and was not evidence of a systemic problem. Supreme Judicial Court Chief Justice Ralph Gants told The Patriot Ledger on Monday that Frederick Amfo was released on bail without being required to surrender his passport because of "confusion" in the Quincy District Court clerk's office.

BEVERLY, Mass. (AP) - A Massachusetts couple's large solar array, dubbed the Solar Monster by critics, will be allowed to remain, but city officials are weighing rules to prevent others from building anything similar. Beverly residents who live near the 20-panel pole-mounted array have complained about its size and the noise it makes as it adjusts itself to better catch the sun's rays. The Salem News reports the city is weighing regulations that would put size limits on such arrays and keep them out of front yards.
