New tornado takes aim at Moore, Oklahoma

Mayor Glenn Lewis of Moore, Oklahoma, tells Anderson Cooper he can't believe his town is bracing for another potential tornado. He spoke by phone on AC360 while awaiting the storm in a shelter.

At least four reported twisters touched down in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area on Friday night leaving more than 60,000 people without power, according to the Oklahoma Gas and Electric Company.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado emergency for areas in and near Oklahoma City, which indicates a powerful tornado could head into a densely populated area with the potential for serious damage.

Dad to teenage suspects: Rot in hell

16-year-old Skylar Neese disappeared after sneaking out of her West Virginia home on July 6, 2012. She wanted to hang out with close friends that night, so she climbed out of her window and got into a car with them.

The teen never returned. Six months later, two girls who had been her best friends told police they stabbed Skylar to death. The girls told police they left her body on the side of the road covered with branches.

One friend, Rachel Shoaf, left for church camp the day after the murder. The second girl's name has not been made public because she is a juvenile.

That other friend stayed in town after her friend's disappearance. She hung missing posters and comforted the family before the body was discovered. Skylar's dad told CNN's Randi Kaye their family thought her friend " ...was so upset and missed Skylar so much, and to find she murdered her makes me sick."

Defense: Video proves woman's innocence

Yanira Maldonado remained in a Mexican jail after authorities accused her of smuggling marijuana under a bus seat. The Mormon mother of seven has maintained her innocence as media coverage of the case has spread throughout the United States.

On Thursday security camera video was shown inside the Mexican court where a judge will decide by Friday whether or not there is enough evidence to charge the U.S. citizen with drug trafficking.

CNN's Rafael Romo was one of a few journalists shown the security footage. As the couple boarded the bus they were "only carrying two blankets, two bottles of water and a purse," he described. FULL POST

Saturday on CNN: Murdered beauty queen and the priest

A Texas beauty queen is murdered on Easter Sunday and 53 years later, the only suspect, the priest who was the last to see her is still a free man. That's despite the fact that other priests, local police and the Texas Rangers say John Feit is the murderer. But they are helpless to do anything.

The reasons why are unique and infuriating to many people. Law enforcement officials consider the evidence overwhelming and plentiful. And people who used to be authorities in the Church who volunteered to testify said Feit admitted killing Irene Garza.

We found John Feit in Arizona, now married and a former priest, and he was very surprised to see us.

Don’t miss the one-hour Anderson Cooper Special Report, "Beauty and the priest" on Saturday night at 8 and 11 p.m. ET.

American woman detained in Mexico: 'I'm innocent'

On Wednesday CNN's Rafael Romo spoke with Yanira Maldonado, the Arizona woman imprisoned in Mexico. In the jailhouse interview, Maldonado proclaimed her innocence and wept at the circumstances that have put her behind bars, far from her children and grandchildren.

She was in the country for a relative's funeral and on her way home with her husband Gary when police arrested her on a bus and accused her of smuggling drugs. Authorities claim they found 12 pounds of marijuana under her seat.

Her family believes she was framed because Mexican soldiers at the checkpoint wanted a bribe.
