MIDLAND — Testimony was expected to begin this morning in the trial of a Big Spring man accused of possessing a “rape kit” with intent to commit aggravated kidnapping and aggravated sexual assault in Midland's 385th District Court.
Howard County commissioners gave a rather tentative nod Monday morning to move forward with a proposed joint law enforcement center that would house the sheriff's office and city police department, although several members admitted having reservations concerning the coming year's budget.
