NEW YORK (CNN) — A 23-year-old man was arraigned Saturday on a murder charge in the death of a toddler shot as his parents pushed him in a stroller across a Brooklyn street.
Howard Jackson, a prosecutor with the Brooklyn District Attorney’s office, told reporters Saturday that Daquan Breland faces a criminal possession of a weapon charge in addition to second-degree murder.
At his initial appearance Saturday, Breland was ordered to remain behind bars; he’s scheduled to next be in court September 12, according to Jackson. Breland is on parole for a felony assault in upstate New York, according to police.
A call placed by CNN on Saturday night to his court-appointed attorney, George Sheinberg, was not immediately returned.
Breland and another young man, Daquan Wright, were apprehended Friday morning by New York detectives and U.S. marshals at a Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, apartment according to New York police…

MANHATTAN, Kan. – The Kansas State Wildcats scored in a variety of ways, nearly hanging half a hundred points as they beat the Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin’ Cajuns 48-27 on Saturday night. Ty Zimmerman returned an interception 32 yards for a touchdown and Tramaine Thompson sprinted 94 yards to score on a kickoff return to aid the scoring effort.
KSU opened a big lead in the third quarter after Jake Waters scored a more traditional rushing touchdown that extended the lead to 34-3. Then the Wildcats seem to let up a bit, the Ragin’ Cajuns had a kickoff return of their own and closed the gap to 41-24 by the end of the third quarter.
But the Wildcats wouldn’t be denied this week. The defense held strong on two drives in the fourth quarter that only produced three points for ULL. The Wildcats were able to pad the lead with another touchdown…

There’s no way to put this mildly: The Michael Beasley free agent signing by the Phoenix Suns last summer was a disastrous one for the franchise.
It led to the firing of head coach Alvin Gentry midway through last season, and when things had completely fallen apart by year’s end, it resulted in the firing of GM Lance Blanks.
The Suns wanted nothing to do with Beasley the basketball player anymore following last season, and his multiple run-ins with the law in situations off the court made him undesirable to the organization as a person, as well.
(Shoutout to my media colleagues in Phoenix who were in attendance for one or more of Blanks’ press conferences last summer.)
The Suns parted ways with Beasley after negotiating a buyout of his contract, and while that makes him an unrestricted free agent, he would seem to be toxic enough right now that…

(CNN) — Tokyo has been chosen by the International Olympic Committee to host the 2020 Summer Games.
During its vote Saturday in Buenos Aires, the committee made its choice over the two other contenders, Madrid and Istanbul.
Saturday’s International Olympic Committee vote in Buenos Aires eliminated Madrid — but only after a tiebreaker vote. Tokyo finished first in the day’s first round of voting, but Madrid and Istanbul received the same number of votes in second place. The committee then voted again to place Istanbul in the final runoff with Tokyo.
Tokyo’s bid comes in at $5 billion to $6 billion, but the city government has already amassed a $4.9 billion Olympic fund to pay to prepare for the Games, he said.
And a $1 billion national stadium that would be used for the athletic events and the opening ceremony will already have been built for the rugby World Cup in…
