UP: Audrey Edmunds. The former Waunakee day care provider will not stand trial a second time for the death of 7-month-old Natalie Beard. Edmunds spent 11 years in prison before being released in January, when new evidence about shaken-baby syndrome cast doubt on her conviction. Dane County prosecutors told a judge that even though they think Edmunds is guilty, Natalie's parents asked them not to pursue a trial. No admission that they may have been wrong. How not surprising.
DOWN: St. Raphael's. Dane County Circuit Judge Richard Neiss denies a petition to halt demolition on the downtown cathedral, which was partially destroyed by arson in 2005. The city's Landmarks Commission recently decided to hold a hearing on whether the site deserves landmark status, but the city had already issued a demolition permit. Landgraf Construction began dismantling the church this week.
