HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - Five members of Pennsylvania's delegation to Congress are asking the NCAA to cancel Penn State's penalties coming out of the Jerry Sandusky child molestation scandal. The lawmakers cite an April state court ruling critical of the consent decree. Three of the five -- Charlie Dent, Mike Doyle and Glenn Thompson -- are Penn State alumni.

PHILADELPIA (AP) - Two men have been charged with felony murder in a Friday carjacking and crash that killed three children and critically injured their mother in Philadelphia. Johnathan Rosa and Cornelius Crawford are charged, with police saying Rosa has been cooperating with investigators.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - More than a year after Ron Tomalis stepped aside as state education chief, he reportedly continues to collect a $140,000 salary as an adviser. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports records of Tomalis' work since his step down also show little evidence of any work he's doing. Acting Education Secretary Carol Dumaresq says Tomalis works a full week.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh judge has declined to drop charges against a man accused of assaulting a police officer during a traffic stop that resulted in the man's being shot and paralyzed. Leon Ford faces trial in September. His attorney argued officers failed to activate an in-car camera and lapel microphones so that jurors wouldn't get a full record of the 2012 stop.
