ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The man charged with killing five members of his family as a teenager was sentenced to life imprisonment with the possibility of parole. In their South Valley home, Nehemiah Griego, now 22, killed his parents and three younger siblings at the age of 15.

MILWAUKEE — Bounce Milwaukee's co-owner, Ryan Clancy, cracked a world record by playing pinball for just over 30 consecutive hours on Saturday.
The challenge was also an attempt to raise money for Children's Wisconsin, formerly known as Wisconsin Children's Hospital, where his son Alex had been treated years ago for kidney failure.
"That was really scary. He'd been sick for around six weeks, and we didn't really point it out," said Clancy. "I thought it would be a great opportunity to raise some funds for that and ensure that other kids had the same great care that Alex used to have."
Clancy stated that the rules are tiring, but nothing like the daily challenges facing Children's Wisconsin's patients. For each hour of unbroken play, Clancy was allowed a five-minute break. The former record was 30 hours and 10 minutes in 2016 for the longest pinball play.
He used to have a crowd just after 3 p.m. to support him and cheer him on ." it was really awesome to see the community support we had on this, "Clancy said.
MILWAUKEE — Halloween may have come and went, but Wisconsin is still home to one of the world's most famous Halloween legends. Houdini is such a famous name that almost a century after his mysterious death it is still familiar.
"Houdini was definitely one of the best-known figures in American culture at his death," said Ellie Gettinger, director of education at the Milwaukee Jewish Museum.
A display as shown at Milwaukee Jewish Exhibition highlights the world-famous escape artist and magician and his not-so-known Milwaukee attachment.
"The man is dying on Halloween. Houdini is dying on Halloween, of course. On what other day can he die?" said Gettinger. As just a skeptic among all mystic and supernatural things, on his death bed he made a promise to his wife. "If anybody can come back from beyond the grave, it's me," said Gettinger, citing Houdini.
His widow held a meeting every year for a decade after his death on the night of Halloween. Still, it's another tradition, but they're still waiting to hear from Houdini. The show "Inescapable: Harry Houdini's Life and Legacy," runs until Jan. 5 at the Milwaukee Jewish Museum.
