RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The top senate race between Democrat Mark Warner and Republican Ed Gillespie is decidedly lower key than previous elections in Virginia. Polls have consistently shown Warner with a large lead over his Republican rival, and national groups that have been pouring money into competitive senate races in other states have largely ignored the Old Dominion.

FALLS CHURCH, Va. (AP) - A 14-year-old boy has been arrested for sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl in Falls Church. Police say the victim told authorities Friday that she was assaulted twice by the same teenager. The first time, the teenager was interrupted by an adult, and ran away.

BOWLING GREEN, Va. (AP) - A former program director at a faith-based boarding school for troubled teens in Virginia has been convicted of sexual battery. A judge sentenced Nathaniel Daniel to 12 months in prison but suspended it and ordered Daniel to undergo a sex offender evaluation.

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (AP) - Police in Newport News say a man has died after a metal object from a flatbed truck fell on him. A police spokeswoman says 79-year-old victim was pronounced dead at the scene of Friday's accident in Newport News.
