1) E. A convicted homeless sex offender checked in with police and told them he was living right next door in an abandoned building. Police searched the structure and found four other residents, bottles of urine and feces on the wall. The building's landlord says he plans to tear the structure down.

2) A. A convicted ax murderer was arrested after police say he violated a restraining order filed by his sister. She alerted authorities, who took him into custody. He was convicted of murdering his mother and 6-year-old nephew in 1989.

3) C. The Chinese government told city officials there will be no pandas coming to the Rio Grande Zoo. The Chinese decided not to send more pandas to the United States, Albuquerque officials say. The city spent $56,000 over more than two years trying to bring a panda or pandas to Albuquerque. The cash paid for trips to China and legal fees, as well as other expenses.

4) B. A UNM study found that 51 percent of high schoolers have been in a car driven by an impaired adult. Data from Albuquerque High, Rio Grande High and Albuquerque Academy students also found that the more often a teen had ridden with an impaired adult, the less risky the teen viewed that behavior. According to the study, 68 percent of the time the impaired adult was a family member. The statistics are based on responses from more than 1,000 students.
