For the last three months, Jayme Closs was held captive, beaten, threatened and forced to hide under a bed for hours with no food or water, in a remote home by the man who allegedly killed her parents.

A strike by tens of thousands of teachers in Los Angeles, the nation's second-largest school district, began Monday with picketing and walkouts after the two sides did not renew negotiations over the weekend.
Talks broke down Friday when the teachers' union rejected as "woefully inadequate" a new offer from the LA Unified School District. With no new discussions scheduled, pickets began Monday morning as teachers stood firm on sticking points including higher pay and smaller class sizes.
"As you know, a strike is a last resort," United Teachers Los Angeles secretary and negotiations team co-chair Ilene Inouye said "We have been in bargaining for the past 21 months and have come to this point. The reason we're here without an agreement has been pretty clear to our bargaining team... We have not had an honest bargaining partner."

More than 100 firefighters and emergency workers in southern Spain searched Monday for a 2-year-old toddler who fell into a narrow and deep borehole.
Rescuers have been unable to get into the borehole, which is no wider than 25 centimeters (10 inches) in diameter and is believed to go down more than 100 meters (330 feet). On Monday afternoon they were deploying three different approaches to reach the bottom of the well but without damaging its structure or blocking it with soil and rocks, local authorities said.
According to rescuers, the boy fell into the hole early Sunday afternoon after walking away from his parents while playing in a mountainous area near the town of Totalan, northeast of the city of Malaga.

After months of speculation and secrecy, the 2020 presidential primary season is about to explode.
With several Democrats already in the race, a half dozen more are locking down final travel, staffing and strategy to launch White House bids in the coming weeks.

Kamala Harris and New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, who face pressure to join the race after Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's entrance two weeks ago.

A winter storm that contributed to at least five deaths in the Midwest pummeled the mid-Atlantic region for a second day Sunday, bringing with it an icy mix that knocked out power, cancelled flights and contributed to hundreds of car accidents.
