MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - President Donald Trump says NFL owners should fire players who kneel during the national anthem. And he's encouraging spectators to walk out in protest. He's also bemoaning that football games have become less violent, complaining, "They're ruining the game."

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Because of a misspelling, a bus-sized ad supporting Roy Moore in Alabama's GOP Senate primary directed people to a Democratic candidate's campaign website. A pro-Moore tour bus promotes a website based on the phrase, "Alabama deserves Moore." But the word "deserves" is misspelled "derserves." That spelling now directs visitors to the campaign website of Democratic candidate Doug Jones.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Jurors in Birmingham have convicted a woman of capital murder in the killing of a man who has been missing since 1995. The jury returned the verdict Friday against 42-year-old Tricia Abney. She was charged with killing 23-year-old Justin Barnett 22 years ago. The investigation went cold for years until Abney's brother went to police with new information in 2015. Barnett's remains still haven't been found.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Alabama Supreme Court says the estate of a driver who died in a crash with a Selma fire truck can move ahead with a wrongful death lawsuit against the city. The justices cleared the way Friday for a lawsuit by representatives of the late Aubrey Vick. He was killed in a wreck on Sept. 19, 2008. The city asked a lower court to dismiss the complaint by arguing that government officials are immune from lawsuits when performing their jobs. The justices refused.
