Morning Juice: Heat Hit a Free Agent Lotto; Thief Lived by Gun, Died by Gun

A look at the local news for Wednesday morning in South Florida:

  • Within hours of announcing her resignation from the Broward County Commission, Diana Wasserman-Rubin was arrested and charged with unlawful compensation, based on her casting votes on grants for Southwest Ranches that were written by her husband, Richard Rubin. [Sun-Sentinel]
  • Two of the "Big Three" free agents -- Dwyane Wade and Toronto Raptors forward Chris Bosh -- appear destined to sign contracts with the Heat. They will be having a conference call with LeBron James, perhaps to sway him toward joining the team. James will decide during a one-hour ESPN special Thursday at 9. []

  • Justice came swiftly for Tyrone Roy Pinkney, the 23-year-old who police say killed a store clerk and a customer at a West Palm minimart Saturday. Police say that in the minutes after that murderous robbery, Pinkney paid a visit to another minimart in Delray Beach, where a clerk shot him dead. [Palm Beach Post]
  • Add another suspect to the case of a missing Hallandale Beach woman. Investigators have identified another person who used the woman's credit card since she disappeared last month. [Miami Herald]
