NATION NEWS BRIEFS

CALIFORNIA / 2nd body found in fire

Authorities say they have found a second body in the charred remains of a San Diego County home where a man called 911 saying he was going to kill himself and his wife and set the place ablaze. Sheriff's Lt. Jim Duffy says the body found Sunday has not been identified but appears to be female. Coroner's officials say a 60-year-old man was found dead Saturday. Firefighters and deputies found the house in flames Saturday after the man told neighbors he was having financial troubles and his wife had cancer, then made the 911 call. The San Diego Union Tribune reports that a bank foreclosed on the home on Dec. 6.


OHIO / Shootout suspect named

Authorities on Sunday identified a man suspected of killing a sheriff's deputy and injuring a police officer in a gun battle at a western Ohio trailer park. The Clark County sheriff's office says the suspect, Michael Ferryman, 57, also was killed during the New Year's Day standoff in the Enon Beach mobile-home park, about 50 miles west of Columbus. A chief deputy says agents from the state crime lab are looking into Ferryman's background. Deputy Suzanne Hopper was shot dead while investigating a report of gunfire at the trailer park. Authorities are still determining whether police gunfire killed Ferryman or he killed himself.


NATIONWIDE / iPhone alarm asleep

IPhone users counting on the device to wake them this weekend got a surprise as the Apple Inc. gadget's alarm-clock system failed for a third time. A fault may prevent one-time alarms from working Saturday and Sunday, the Cupertino, Calif.-based company said Sunday. Recurring alarms will still function on those dates and all alarms will operate Monday, according to Apple. Spokeswoman Trudy Muller declined to comment beyond the company's statement. A defect caused some iPhone alarm settings in Europe to go off an hour late Nov. 1, failing to adjust automatically as most countries in Europe switched to standard time from daylight saving.
