Lori's A.M. Buzz: End to murder mystery?

By Susan Kinzie
Chris Stanford

Good morning! Loris away this week, so Ive got your news roundup, starting with an expected verdict:

Post Local will have continuing coverage of the Robert Wone conspiracy trial.

Wone, a District lawyer, was found dead in 2006 with stab wounds to his chest at the home of three of his friends.

Stung: A $5,000 payment in an Arlington park leads to the FBI arrest of 10 people accused of being Russian spies.

Jeff Stein, The Post's SpyTalk blogger, will take questions online at 11.

A Forestville man shoots and kills a home invader. Police said he stopped the man when he saw him forcing a woman into an apartment, then defended himself when the intruder shot at him on the same day the U.S. Supreme Court affirms the fundamental right to bear arms.

The families of two teen girls missing since last week from a parent's home in Tysons Corner will speak to the public about their daughters this morning.

Follow The Post for news on how Sen. Robert Byrd's death affects the fate of the financial legislation Democrats hope to send to the president this week.

West Virginia's governor will appoint someone to fill in for Byrd until the 2012 election, so the partisan breakdown in the Senate is expected to remain unchanged by the Democrat's death.

Next act? An art deco landmark, the Bethesda Theatre, goes up for auction today at 1 p.m. It opened as a movie house on Wisconsin Avenue in 1938, and was renovated as recently as 2007, but after the economy tanked owners defaulted on the mortgage for the 700-seat theater.

The State Department has scrapped plans for emergency training on the Eastern Shore after residents object, the Washington Business Journal reports.

Former NBA player and humanitarian Manute Bol's
funeral at National Cathedral today is open to the public; check back for photo coverage.

Last day of the heat wave? Expect some sun and temperatures rising into the low 90s today then a real break beginning this evening, with less heat and humidity in the days to come.

Ghosts! The Frederick News-Post reports that a team of paranormal investigators hears spooky noises at the train museum in Brunswick, including someone -- or something -- laughing at them. And WUSA has video.

Anything left in there? Author Nicholas Carr will talk about his book "The Shallows: What the Internet is Doing to Our Brains" at Politics and Prose tonight.

If you'd rather not know, take in Pat Benatar's insights at lunchtime at Barnes and Noble in McLean, before she rolls out her '80s hits at Wolf Trap tonight.
