No. 2 - A South Florida man will soon be free after spending more than 20 years in prison for a federal drug charge, but his release was made possible by a Texas attorney – and reality TV star Kim Kardashian-West.

Jeffrey Stringer was arrested in West Palm Beach in the late 90’s. He was supposed to spend his life in jail, but now he has a second chance. Attorney Brittany Barnett traveled to Miami on Friday to support Stringer’s family in court when the federal judge announced he would be a free man.

No. 3 - Fire has damaged a new luxury, adults-only resort in the Florida Keys.

The pre-dawn fire on Sunday burned sections of the Bungalows, which had opened in December in Key Largo. The resort has 135 private bungalows situated throughout the 12-acre waterfront property.

No. 4 - Russian emergency workers have recovered 41 bodies and two flight recorders from the wreckage of a plane that caught fire during an emergency landing in Moscow, officials said Monday as they sought to discover the cause of the disaster.

Transport Minister Yevgeny Dietrich gave the death toll and said six of the survivors had been hospitalized. The plane, an Aeroflot SSJ100, was carrying 78 people, including five crew members.

No. 5 - Michael Cohen, the former lawyer, media attack dog and all-around fixer for President Donald Trump, is scheduled to begin serving a three-year prison sentence Monday for crimes including campaign finance violations related to hush-money payments made on Trump's behalf.

Cohen faces a 2 p.m. deadline to report to the Federal Correctional Institution, Otisville, a federal prison in the countryside 70 miles northwest of New York City.

No. 6 - Boeing says it didn't warn airlines that a safety alert on its 737 max jets wasn't working until after one of its planes crashed in Indonesia last year.

The safety alert warns pilots if a certain sensor is malfunctioning. A similar issue caused a second plane to crash in Ethiopia five months later.
