A man recently elected to a school board in southern Colorado spent more than a decade in prison in North Carolina for murder.
Thomas Seaba first discussed the conviction this week with KKTV and said he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder for shooting and killing a fellow Marine in 1997. According to North Carolina prison records, Seaba was released in March 2010 after serving nearly 13 years in prison. He was on parole until December 2010.

Mass murderer Charles Manson, 83, is in a Bakersfield hospital, though the severity of his condition is unclear, it was reported Thursday.
Manson and members of his "family'' of followers were convicted of killing actress Sharon Tate and six other people during a bloody rampage in the Los Angeles area in the summer of 1969. Prosecutors said Manson and his followers were trying to incite a race war he dubbed "Helter Skelter," taken from the Beatles song of the same name.
Manson was initially sentenced to death. But a 1972 ruling by the California Supreme Court found the state's death penalty law at the time unconstitutional, and his sentence was changed to life in prison with the possibility of parole.
Police on Wednesday called the deadly shooting rampage in Northern California a clear case of "a madman on the loose'' while defending their decision not to arrest the man for previously violating a court order prohibiting him from having guns.
At a tense news conference, police conceded that neighbors had repeatedly complained about Kevin Neal firing hundreds of rounds from his house among other erratic and violent behavior.
Tehama County Assistant Sheriff Phil Johnston said authorities responded to neighbors' calls several times, but the 44-year-old Neal wouldn't open the door, so they left.

The gunman who killed his wife and four others in a rampage in Northern California this week found an easy way around a court order prohibiting him from having guns: He built his own at home.
Kevin Neal, 44, was armed with what authorities believe were two high-powered rifles that he made himself when he opened fire Tuesday on homes, cars and an elementary school around his tiny hometown of Rancho Tehama Reserve. A deputy finally shot and killed him.

The Food and Drug Administration on Thursday approved Hemlibra (hem-LEE'-bruh), a weekly injection for hemophilia A patients who have developed resistance to standard medicines.
Sen. Al Franken, D-Minn., has apologized to the Los Angeles radio news anchor who on Thursday accused him of forcibly kissing and groping her while they were on a USO tour in 2006, before Franken was elected to the Senate.

Franken released two statements, the first one three sentences long, the second much longer. Read them in full, here.

Two couples are suing a New York fertility doctor and his clinic after giving birth to children with a genetic abnormality later traced back to donated eggs.
The two children, both born in 2009, have Fragile X syndrome, a genetic condition that can lead to intellectual and developmental impairments. The parents, identified by initials and last names in legal papers, argue the doctor and the clinic failed to test the women who donated the eggs to determine whether they were carriers for Fragile X. They're seeking damages for the added expenses of raising a disabled child.
