It had collected more than $13 million by Wednesday afternoon.

RIVERSIDE, Calif. (AP) - An investigator says the children of a California couple facing torture and abuse charges were so malnourished that their 11-year-old daughter had arms the size of an infant.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A federal judge says he's not persuaded that California passed three laws protecting immigrants who are in the country illegally to obstruct federal immigration enforcement.
