Former U.S. presidents would receive lifetime protection from the Secret Service under a bill that the House is expected to vote on Wednesday, the Washington Times reports.

Following the Cold War, about two decades ago, Congress approved legislation to cancel Secret Service protection a decade after presidents leave office.

But the House is poised to restore lifelong Secret Service protection because of new dangers in the world, such as terrorism, the Washington Times reported.

The ex-presidents who are still alive include Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter.

A self-described serial killer who committed suicide in an Alaskan jail went on vacation for two weeks after he sexually assaulted an 18-year-old woman, strangled her and stored her body in a shed, the FBI revealed Tuesday in hopes that new information will help investigators find more victims, the Associated Press reports.

After returning from the cruise, the AP wrote, Israel Keyes photographed the body of Samantha Koenig as if she were still alive, cut up her body and tossed her remains in a frozen lake where Keyes cut a hole in the ice with a chain saw.

Keyes sent a photo of Koenig’s body to her family, demanding $30,000 to release the woman, the AP reported.

Keyes, 34, who was arrested after using the victim’s ATM, was awaiting trial for her murder in March.

Keyes said he killed seven other people across the country over the past decade.

 A U.S. Border Patrol agent is accused of smuggling bundles of marijuana with his patrol vehicle while he was on duty, the Associated Press reports, citing a complaint filed in federal court earlier this week.

Authorities says Aaron Anaya stopped along the international border and picked up about 147 pounds of marijuana that had been dropped over the fence from Mexico, the AP wrote.

Anaya was caught taking the pot by the Southwest Border Corruption Task Force.

Anaya was charged with possession with intent to distribute marijuana and carrying a firearm while committing a crime, the AP reported.

The FBI was part of the task force.
