HELENA, Mont. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a third man in connection with a double homicide at a home north of Helena. The Independent Record reports 22-year-old Journey Wienke was taken into custody Friday on several charges stemming from the March 18 deaths of David and Charla Taylor. Authorities arrested 21-year-old Kyle Alexander Hamm on Thursday, and prosecutors say the Taylors' 21-year-old son, Kaleb David Taylor, confessed to the killings. All three have been charged with deliberate homicide.

GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - Police in Great Falls say a long-running feud may have led to the death of a 45-year-old man whose body was found lying in the middle of the street. Sgt. Jim Wells says officers have identified and are searching for two suspects and are questioning two other people. They do not believe there is any further threat to the community.

SEATTLE (AP) - Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke says the federal government is moving forward with plans to restore grizzly bears in the remote North Cascade Mountains of Washington state.

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - An Idaho mining company is suing Montana environmental regulators for labeling the company and its president as "bad actors" who should pay for cleanups at several polluted sites before pursuing two new mines. Attorneys for three subsidiaries of Hecla Mining asked a state judge to block the Department of Environmental Quality's ruling on Phillips S. Baker Jr. Hanging in the balance are two proposed copper and silver mines in northwestern Montana that would employ about 300 workers each.
