1. Senators rejected a bid to ban gay marriage. Moderate Republicans joined Democrats1 to oppose the measure. But supporters say they are building a base for a constitutional amendment2 to bar same-sex marriages.

2. Jerry Inman already faces charges of killing3 a college student in South Carolina, but police say there may be more charges coming. Inman was arrested in Tennessee for killing Tiffany Souers. The sheriff says Inman may also be charged with sex assaults in Tennessee and Alabama.

3. Democratic members of Congress want millions of veterans and active-duty personnel to get free credit monitoring. This comes after the Department of Veterans Affairs admitted that personal information for millions of veterans, active-duty and Guard personnel was on a laptop that was stolen. The lawmakers are asking the Bush administration to pay for the monitoring.

4. School is almost out so let the prank4s begin. Thousands of students at a San Jose California high school were stuck outside for hours after somebody glued all the doors shut, all 180 of them, on the first day of finals. It took hours to get the doors open again. Officials believe they will find all the pranksters.
