A Batavia woman injured early this week when struck by a car in Erie County has died.
31-year-old Jacqueline Dotzler died yesterday at Erie County Medical Center.
Dotzler was struck by a car Monday night as she crossed Camp Road in Hamburg.
The driver of the car was not charged.
The case against a Canadian man, accused of landing a single punch that caused serious damage to a Darien lake concert goer, will head to trial.
The plea deadline has passed in the case against 34-year-old Craig Lawson of Ontario.
He is accused of assaulting Jason McNeil of Tuscaloosa, Alabama at a Kid Rock concert last July. McNeil suffered a severe head injury and was in a coma for weeks.
Lawson was originally represented by New York State Senator Michael Ranzenhofer. Defense Attorney Joel Daniels of Buffalo appeared for Lawson yesterday.
The trial is expected to begin in June and last about a week.
A judge says the attorney general's office can release a report on the state's response to the 1971 Attica prison uprising. The ruling says the document can be released with all reference to confidential grand jury evidence redacted. More than 40 people died during the riots at the prison, including ten guards. The report is being stored in a secure room at an office building in Buffalo.
It looks like the Buffalo Bills will be heading into the season without cheerleaders. The director of the Buffalo Jills announced yesterday that she has suspended all operations after a lawsuit accusing the team of paying cheerleaders less than the minimum wage. The suit claims that each cheerleader is forced to work unpaid for around 20 hours a week most of the year.
