A state senator and former gubernatorial candidate was critically injured Tuesday after being assaulted at his Virginia home, and another person was found dead inside the home, police and hospital officials said.
The Virginia State Police did not describe how Democratic Sen. R. Creigh (kree) Deeds was injured, and authorities have not identified the other person in the home. Deeds twice ran unsuccessfully for governor, losing both times to Gov. Bob McDonnell. (AP)
