Despite allegations of racism marring his electoral campaign, Carlo Tavecchio was elected the new president of the Italian football federation on Monday. Tavecchio beat Demetrio Albertini in the race to replace Giancarlo Abete, with the 71-year-old earning 63.63 percent of the votes in the third round of balloting. Albertini received 33.95 percent of the votes cast by the 274 delegates present. Tavecchio said, "I will be the president of everyone, especially those who didn't vote for me."
LOS ANGELES A Los Angeles judge on Tuesday ordered onetime rap mogul Marion "Suge" Knight and comedian Katt Williams to stand trial on charges of robbing a paparazzi photographer of her camera. Prosecutors in the case have said if Knight is convicted they will seek a sentence of 25 years to life under California's three-strikes law, which gives stiffer sentences to those previously convicted of serious felonies. Knight's attorney Thomas Mesereau told the court his client was with his son when he encountered photographer Leslie Redden, and that he was trying to protect the boy from public exposure.
On Wednesday night, Luis Escamilla is slated to become the 24th convicted killer put to death this year in the United States – with Texas accounting for half of the executions. The US supreme court last week refused to review the 33-year-old’s case, the Texas board of pardons and paroles on Monday decided against a reprieve and recommending clemency and no new appeals were in the courts on Tuesday. “He’s a really bad guy,” trial prosecutor Fred Burns said on Tuesday. “I think what happened is the guy already committed one murder and figures that’s what [officers] were coming after him for.” A warrant had been issued for Escamilla in connection with the shooting death of a West Dallas neighbor nearly three weeks before James’s death on 25 November 2001. Escamilla’s trial attorneys told jurors he was responsible for James’s slaying but argued it did not merit a death sentence because James was not officially on duty, meaning the crime did not qualify as a capital murder.
Kate Winslet will play American fashion model, artist and war correspondent Elizabeth “Lee” Miller in an untitled film to be produced by Troy Lum and Andrew Mason of Hopscotch Features.

Producers will next look for a writer to adapt the material into a feature film.

Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital is preparing to welcome an Oscar winner—just not in the way you'd think. E! News has confirmed that Denzel Washington is headed to Grey's Anatomy for the ninth episode of season 12, but as its director. The episode, which was written by Grey's head writer Stacy McKee, will begin filming later this month and is scheduled to air during November sweeps. The gig marks Washington's first time directing for the small screen. He has previously directed two films: 2002's Antwone Fisher and 2007's The Great Debaters. It also marks a reunion of sorts with longtime friend Debbie Allen, who, beyond appearing as Dr. Catherine Avery on Grey's, has directed many episodes.
