For a decade, she thought the crash that killed her boyfriend was her fault. Now regulators say a faulty GM ignition switch may be to blame.

So far, hundreds of people have put in death and injury claims against G-M.

Today the lawyer hired to manage the company’s compensation fund tied more deaths to the defect and said he expects the number to rise.

One of the 19 people killed was Mikale Erickson. His girlfriend, Candice Anderson, was behind the wheel when they crashed in 2004. Mikale died and Candice was seriously injured. The police report says neither was wearing a seat belt and the car's airbags did not deploy.

It was found that Candice had taken unprescribed Xanax the night before the crash, and she was prosecuted for homicide. She later pleaded guilty to felony negligent homicide and was sentenced to five years probation and fined.

Did Ray Rice get 'celebrity justice' from a New Jersey prosecutor?

Ray Rice landed in a diversion program that helped him avoid jail time for abusing his wife in an Atlantic City elevator. Shaneen Allen was not so lucky. She was carrying her gun that was licensed in Pennsylvania when she was pulled over in New Jersey. She did not realize the license didn't transfer across state lines and was arrested on the spot. She now faces the possibility of more than 11 years in prison. The same prosecutor who agreed to put Ray Rice in his diversion program had already said no to Shaneen Allen. Randi Kaye has the story.

Vikings clear Adrian Peterson to return to the field

Adrian Peterson will be back on the field, playing with the Vikings next weekend. The decision comes just days after he was benched following his indictment on a felony child abuse charge. Peterson released a statement on the way he punished his son, saying in part:

"The way my parents disciplined me has a great deal to do with the success I have enjoyed as a man..."

He is talking about a style of parenting that millions of Americans will recognize. It is also a style of parenting that's at the center of a national debate over what constitutes abuse. Ed Lavandera takes a closer look at the Peterson case.


NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley weighed into the controversy surrounding Adrian Peterson saying:

"I'm from the south. Whipping is…we do that all the time. Every black parent in the south is going to be in jail under those circumstances. We have to be careful letting people dictate how we..you know treat their children."

 Anderson discussed all of this with children's advocate Areeva Martin, New York Times columnist Charles Blow and Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin.
