LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) - Court records show a member of a white supremacist prison gang has pleaded guilty in Louisiana to a federal criminal charge stemming from the 2016 killing of a fellow alleged gang member. The records unsealed on Tuesday indicate 38-year-old Jeremy Wade Jordan of Orange, Texas, pleaded guilty on March 2 to the first of two counts in his indictment. The first count in his Dec. 14 indictment charged Jordan with "violent crimes in aid of racketeering" in the murder of Clifton Hallmark of Shreveport.

CHANDLER, Okla. (AP) - An investigation and search warrant continues in east-central Oklahoma after deputies found about $250,000 in stolen property while raiding a burglary stash house. The Shawnee News-Star reports that some of the stolen items discovered by Lincoln County deputies included several Purple Hearts, military items, a coffin, TVs and guitars. The search for a suspicious vehicle led to the search warrant that was served early Sunday at the home near Prague.

TULSA, Okla. (AP) - An Oklahoma man already sentenced to life in prison for the hate-crime killing of his Lebanese neighbor has pleaded guilty for a hit-and-run that injured the victim's mother. Stanley Majors was convicted last month of murder and hate crime charges in the shooting death of 37-year-old Khalid Jabara. On Tuesday, Majors pleaded guilty to assault and battery with a deadly weapon, leaving the scene of an injury collision and violating a protective order for running over Jabara's mother, Haifa Jabara.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Lab results have revealed the answer to a mystery at an Oklahoma zoo: Just what caused a female lion to sprout a mane. The Oklahoma City Zoo says in its March newsletter that testing at the University of Tennessee found the African lioness named Bridget has an elevated level of androstenedione. The hormone can contribute to developing male features. The zoo says female lions with manes are not unheard of, but they are rare.
