POTTSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - A judge has upheld charges against a Philadelphia woman accused of helping her 93-year-old father commit suicide through a morphine overdose.

   Prosecutors in Schuylkill County have charged 57-year-old nurse Barbara Mancini with aiding suicide.

 

   A judge refused to drop the charges after a preliminary hearing Thursday.

 

   Pottsville police say Mancini handed Joseph Yourshaw a bottle of liquid morphine at his home in February, leading to his death four days later.

 

   Mancini remains free on bail. A phone at her lawyer's office rang unanswered Thursday evening and he could not be reached for comment.

 

   An advocacy group called Compassion & Choice supports Mancini and says her father had end-stage diabetes and heart problems.

   The group says the U.S. Supreme Court allows dying patients to receive adequate pain relief, even if it hastens their death.

  MOSCOW (AP) - A Russian lawyer for Edward Snowden says the National Security Agency leaker has received asylum in Russia for one year and left the transit zone of Moscow' airport.

   Anatoly Kucherena said he handed over the papers to Snowden on Thursday. He said Snowden left Moscow's Sheremetyevo airport where he was stuck since his arrival from Hong Kong on June 23.

   Kucherena said that Snowden's whereabouts will be kept secret for security reasons.

   The U.S. has demanded that Russia send Snowden home to face prosecution for espionage, but President Vladimir Putin has dismissed the request.

   Putin had said that Snowden could receive asylum in Russia on condition he stops leaking U.S. secrets. Kucherena has said Snowden accepted the condition.
