BATON ROUGE, La. — Baton Rouge police say two 23-year-old Texas women were shot to death in a car, and investigators don’t have any suspects or motive.

Cpl. Don Coppola says in a news release that the bodies of Brandi Gilbert of Plano and Corrin Rayford of Grapevine were found about 11 p.m. Friday in a vehicle parked on the roadside.

Area resident Lyle Hitzman has told media outlets that he called police late Friday because an unfamiliar car was parked in a dark area near his house. He says he did not approach it and was shocked to learn that two women’s bodies had been found inside. He says the neighborhood is a pretty quiet area.

WASHINGTON — Abortion is back before the Supreme Court, and the justices could signal by the end of June whether they are likely to take up the biggest case on the hot-button subject in nearly a quarter-century.

If the court steps in, the hearing and the eventual ruling would come amid the 2016 presidential campaign. The court is considering an emergency appeal from abortion providers in Texas, who want the justices to block two provisions of a state law that already has forced the closure of roughly half the licensed abortion clinics in the state. Ten of the remaining 19 clinics will have to shut their doors by July 1, without an order from the Supreme Court.

WASHINGTON — The leader of a white supremacist group cited by Charleston church murder suspect Dylann Roof made $65,000 in donations to Republicans, including several to Republican presidential candidates, The Guardian newspaper reported Sunday night.

The paper reported that one of the candidates, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, would return the $8,500 he received from Earl Holt, leader of the Council of Conservative Citizens.
