MILWAUKEE (AP) - A health care company facing criminal charges over a Milwaukee inmate's dehydration death says it will "vigorously defend all claims." Prosecutors on Wednesday charged Miami-based Armor Correctional Health Services Inc. with seven misdemeanor counts of intentionally falsifying health records, including those of 38-year-old Terrill Thomas. He died after spending seven days in his cell without water.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - A purge of voters from Wisconsin voting rolls caused problems for some at the polls during Tuesday's spring primary. Some voters' information was removed, even though it remained current. Wisconsin elections officials say there is no evidence anyone was prevented from voting. A state initiative last year removed from voting rolls anyone who had moved recently. But some voters learned Tuesday that they had been removed from the registration rolls despite not having moved.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker says he will sign into law a bill that would close the troubled Lincoln Hills juvenile prison by 2021 and overhaul the entire juvenile justice system. The Assembly unanimously passed the bill on Wednesday. It now goes to the Senate, where Republican Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald has been non-committal. Walker says he spoke with all Republican senators to urge them to support it.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - City leaders say Milwaukee will make a bid for the 2020 Democratic National Convention. Congresswoman Gwen Moore says the national convention has quite an economic impact on the host city. Moore says two years ago, the DNC Convention brought 54,000 people and $231 million in economic activity to Philadelphia.
