Grandma power: Oregon purse snatcher can't shake her off car
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A Portland grandmother whose purse was snatched at a supermarket Friday chased the thief into the parking lot, where she jumped onto the hood of his car, grabbed the windshield wipers and refused to let go until he coughed up her purse.

He did.

Fifty-three-year-old Tammy Elliott tells The Oregonian she was determined not to lose photos of her grandchildren, so she hung on while the man turned on the wipers, revved the engine and drove the car through herky-jerky maneuvers intended to sling her off.

Police say the man eventually threw the purse out the car window, and Elliott clambered off to retrieve it. He fled, keeping the wallet that had been inside the purse, but Elliott says it didn't have any money anyway.

Trial in killing of toddler at Oregon resort set for 2016
ASTORIA, Ore. (AP) — The trial of a Washington state woman accused of killing her 2-year-old daughter at an Oregon coastal resort has been put off until June 2016.

Forty-one-year-old Jessica Smith of Goldendale had been scheduled to stand trial in July.

But at a hearing Thursday in Astoria, defense lawyers said they had other aggravated murder cases to try this year and couldn't be ready then.

The charge could carry the death penalty, although the prosecutor hasn't said he'll seek it.

Smith's other daughter is 13 and attending school for the first time. She survived a slashing attack.

Her father said the earlier a trial is held the better, but he sought a delay when an April 2016 date was suggested so that she doesn't have to miss any school days.

Officers say Jessica Smith killed the toddler and tried to kill her teenage daughter at a Cannon Beach hotel last year. The defense attorney says he will likely pursue a mental health defense. The trial is set for June 28, 2016. Investigators say the long trial delay is due to having to analyze a taped interview with Smith. The family, some of them living in Medford, say they are okay with the delay in order for the surviving victim to finish the school year.
