SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) â€” A retired Arizona State University professor is taking his pursuit of a death certificate for Billy the Kid to New Mexico's highest court.
Historian Robert J. Stahl filed a petition Friday with the New Mexico Supreme Court to order the state's medical examiner to create the document for the legendary outlaw, the Santa Fe New Mexican reported (http://bit.ly/1CIJ73M).
Stahl says he hopes the court will order the Office of the Medical Investigator to consider the evidence and determine whether William H. Bonney's death can be certified.

CINCINNATI (AP) â€” Mike Trout flashed the skill that puts him at the front of baseballâ€™s new generation, just moments after four of the all-time greats walked off the field.
Trout, who is the nephew of retired City of Poteau Water Department employee Charles Busonick and his wife Sandra, became the first player in 38 years to homer leading off an All-Star Game, then became the first player to take home the Midsummer Classicâ€™s Most Valuable Player Award two years in row.
