TULSA, Okla. (AP) — A Washington County jury has convicted a teenager on one count of plotting to kill students and teachers in a mass school shooting at Bartlesville High School while acquitting him on a second charge.

The Oklahoma Supreme Court says it's declining to take jurisdiction over the adoption dispute involving a Cherokee girl and has dissolved a stay that was keeping the girl with her father in Oklahoma.
It wasn't immediately clear whether young Veronica would remain in the Cherokee Nation. The tribal court has found that Matt and Melanie Capobianco of South Carolina have no valid claim to the 4-year-old. The girl's father, Dusten Brown, claims federal law favors his keeping custody of the child, but the U.S. Supreme Court has said the Indian Child Welfare Act does not apply to the case.
