A hunting accident on the opening day of deer season has turned deadly.
70-year-old Robert Miller of Portville has died from injuries he suffered last Saturday when he fell from a tree stand in the Livingston County community of Leisester.
State Police said Miller did not secure a safety strap on the stand and fell 15-feet after firing a shot.
No charges will be filed in the case of a suburban Buffalo teen who committed suicide after being bullied for months. Jamey Rodemeyer hanged himself in September after posting on his blog that he had been the subject of gay slurs and other bullying tactics for months. Amherst police say they have determined that none of the reported juvenile incidents against the 14-year-old Rodemeyer reached a criminal level.
