Trump and Putin hold their first formal summit
President Donald Trump says “nothing bad … maybe some good” will come out of his first, formal summit Monday with Russia’s Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. Trump said he has "low expectations," though he will consider asking Putin to extradite the 12 Russian intelligence officers accused of hacking Democratic emails to the United States for prosecution.

Raging fire threatens Yosemite National Park
Crews will attempt Monday to retrieve the body of a firefighter killed during the wildfire near Yosemite National Park, a 4,000-acre blaze that was only 2 percent contained as of Sunday afternoon. Heavy fire equipment operator Braden Varney was driving a bulldozer when he died Saturday, and a state official said Varney's body was in a precarious location too dangerous to allow crews to get close. Some 500 firefighters battled the wildfire that started Friday, the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection said. At least one climate scientist, Daniel Swain of UCLA, said the fire "may eventually become a major threat” to the park. The fire's cause remained unknown as of Sunday.
DNA evidence credited for arrest in 30-year-old cold case
Thirty years after the murder of an 8-year-old girl, Indiana police arrested a man in connection to her death. John D. Miller, 59, was arrested Sunday morning, according to court documents, and slated to make his first court appearance Monday. When police arrived at Miller's home in Grabill, they asked him if he knew why they were there. He answered "April Tinsley," before admitting to the horrific crime in 1988, according to documents. A break in the case occurred earlier this year when DNA from used condoms found in Miller's trash matched DNA found on the victim.
