A Homeland Security police officer is accused of killing his estranged wife and two others during a two-day rampage of violence.

Eulalio “Leo” Tordil, 62, was arrested Friday afternoon and is charged with first-degree murder and related charges.

The Washington Post reports that the Federal Protection Service stripped Tordil of his gun and badge in March after his wife was granted a protective order. She said her husband “threatened to harm me if I leave.”

The incident allegedly provoked the rampage in Maryland. Tordil is accused of shooting his wife and four seeming strangers. His wife and two of the others died.

Authorities are examining the airflow of tunnels in the New York subway to prepare for a potential biological chemical attack.

The massive study will involve a small device that authorities hope will play a big role in the event of a terrorist attack, CBS New York reports. 

“This is important information to help local authorities enhance their emergency preparedness for an event that might occur in the subway if there’s a release of biological material or a chemical material,” Dr. Donald Bansleb with Homeland Security said.

About 200 chemical tracers will be placed at dozens of subway stations across the city as part of a five-dat airflow test.

“This will tell us in real time data aerosol concentrations and the particle concentrations in the stations after we do the release,” laboratory engineer David Brown said.

“That will help authorities to predict boundaries of contamination if there is a release of a substance,” Bansleb said.

The FBI is expected to make more public corruption arrests stemming from a case that targeted a onetime top aide to former Pennsylvania Gov. Edward G. Rendell, the New York Times reports. 

John H. Estey, 53, is expected to plead guilty to wire fraud in federal court Tuesday.

The investigation involves a phony company established by the FBI to root out public corruption in Harrisburg.

“I would anticipate that there are a lot of people who are nervous and looking over their shoulder right now, because they know they had conversations with John Estey,” said Jeffrey Lindy, a Philadelphia defense lawyer and a former prosecutor.

More charges are likely, legal experts said.

“You’re not going to set up a fake corporation and go to all the trouble just to take down one guy,” said L. George Parry, a Philadelphia defense lawyer who as a former prosecutor helped set up the fake businesses.

A former FBI agent plans to plead guilty to perjury charges as early as Monday after prosecutors said he lied during the James “Whitey” Bulger case in Boston.

The Associated Press reports that Robert Fitzpatrick is accused of lying to jurors when defense attorneys called him as the first witness in the high-profile trial.

Prosecutors accused Fitzpatrick, 76, of falsely claiming to recover the rifle used to assassinate Martin Luther King Jr. in 1968 and exaggerating claims that he tried to get supervisors to stop using Bulger as an informant because he wasn’t helpful.
