LOS ANGELES -- Police say a man wanted in connection with a nurse's murder in New York City was holding another woman captive when he was captured Thursday in a California hotel room. Police had been searching for 27-year-old Danueal Drayton, of New Haven, Conn., since 29-year-old nurse Samantha Stewart was found dead inside her bedroom at her family home in Queens on July 17, according to CBS New York.

Millennial socialist candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has won the Democratic primary for the New York 14th Congressional district. Ms Ocasio-Cortez, 28, defeated political veteran Joe Crowley, 56, on Tuesday night (local time).
