7:02 am
her accused murder, a jv soccer player at the school. he had just transferred her from tennessee. investigators say philip chism killed colleen ritzer, about 3:30 p.m. tuesday. reportedly, with a box cutter, in the school's faculty bathroom. and that surveillance cameras show him using what appears to be a recycling bin to move her body to the woods. >> she was just a young, caring girl, that had the whole world ahead of her. and to be taken just so tragically is awful. >> reporter: by 6:00 p.m., chism was reported missing. when he didn't show up to soccer practice, these students telling us, they searched for him all night. >> at first, we thought he was, you know, abducted or just gone missing. >> reporter: sources say he had gone to a nearby movie theater to watch a woody allen movie. by 11:00 p.m., colleen ritzer was also reported missing. that's when police went to investigate and found her body.
7:03 am
an hour and a half later, chism was spotted walking on the side of a busy road. and after questioning by police, arrested. he has been charged as an adult, with ritzer's murder. his mother in tears. chism pleading not guilty. sadly, miss ritzer's final tweet was about monday's school shooting in nevada. another student allegedly killing a math teacher there. ritzer called it simply devastating. >> she could find joy in anything. and she brought so much joy into my life. >> reporter: at game one of the world series, a moment of silence in her honor. and this morning, we still don't know why this 14-year-old would have allegedly killed his own teacher, george. >> gio, thanks. let's get more from abc news consultant, brad garret, former special agent with the fbi. brad, this is very different from the shooting we saw earlier in the week. this time, not a random spree. the teacher, the sole target.
7:04 am
>> this is a focused attack. i would assume this kid's motive might be sexual. it might be revenge. but it was focused just the teacher. and my sense is, the murder part of it, may be secondary. that whatever he did, that this was a sexual assault, for example, that like so many people, they realize what they've done. and how much trouble they're in and they try to get rid of the evidence. >> and you said the use of this box cutter is significant? >> i think so. only because people who tend to kill with items that may be ready available, like box cutters in the school, that the murder is secondary. it's like, he realized, once he got into this, that he was in so much trouble, that i have to get rid of this woman. that's when it happened. >> one thing investigators will be looking at, no doubt, possible mental health issues? >> i think so. people don't all of a sudden do this. this is a build-up over months, maybe years. from depression, to ice wlags, to desperation. i mean, you have to be big-time
7:05 am
narcissenato narcissistic and not be able to think about or have any empathy about other people to commit these types of acts. this kid has really gone inside himself. i think that's the big problem. >> brad garrett, thanks very much. we're going to move on to new accusations the united states has been spying on one of its closest allies. the german foreign minister has called in the american ambassador over suspicious -- over suspicions that the u.s. has been monitoring the phone calls of the german leader, chancellor merkel. abc's martha raddatz has been tracking it and has the latest from washington this morning. good morning, martha. >> reporter: good morning, robin. you can imagine the outrage there would be if the u.s. suspected an ally was tapping into president obama's phone. that's how the germans feel this morning. chancellor merkel spends a lot of time on her cell phone. in official meetings. with movie stars. and on the go. but what she says and what she texts are assumed to be private, which is why these accusations have sparked headlines around the world this morning. furious german officials, saying
7:06 am
they have received information that the chancellor's cell phone may be monitored by american intelligence. sensing the seriousness, president obama was in touch with merkel almost immediately. >> i can tell you that the president assured the chancellor that the united states is not monitoring and will not monitor the communications of the chancellor. >> reporter: but notice that the white house spokesman carefully said the u.s. is not monitoring and will not monitor the chancellor. he refused to say whether she has been monitored in the past. this comes after an uproar in france, with reports that the nsa swept up more than 70 million french phone calls in just a month, which the u.s. calls misleading. and in mexico and brazil, investigations have been launched after reports that high-ranking officials have been electronically tracked by the u.s. almost all of the reports of spying are based on leaks from
7:07 am
former nsa contractor, edward snowden. these revelations will be a big topic today at a european union summit in brussels. merkel will be there, along with the french president. george? >> martha, thanks very much. in washington, new trouble this morning for obama care. the designer of the website in for a grilling on capitol hill, as more and more democrats are calling for delaying the law until the problems plaguing the website preventing people from getting health insurance are fixed. jon karl at the white house. the white house clarifying, that no one without insurance gets the penalty, as long as they sign up early next year. >> reporter: under the law, you can be penalized if you don't have insurance by march 31st. but what the administration is now clarifying, as long as you have enrolled, you won't be penalized, even if your health insurance doesn't take effect until a later date. but, george, i got to tell you, this is a clarification, not an extension. a lot of people on capitol hill, including now many democrats, are saying the administration should delay that mandate for a full year because of all of the computer problems. and the white house is saying,
7:08 am
at least for now, they will not do that. >> but the website designers are going to get hammered on capitol hill today about all of the problems. >> reporter: no question about that. we've seen the prepared testimony for this hearing. what they are saying, part of the blame is with the white house, with the administration, for changing what they wanted. and putting in a last-minute change that said that people have to register first before they can look and compare how much the plans cost. >> there's been questions whether or not the white house should have pushed ahead to meet the original october 1st deadline knowing, or perhaps maybe they should have known these problems were there. >> reporter: it's quite clear, at least from the insurance company side of things, this was not ready to go on october 1st. and people in the industry knew it wasn't going to be ready to go. >> jon karl, thanks very much. let's get the other top stories from amy robach, in for josh. a big reversal in the famous kennedy family murder case. >> that's right. that's what we begin with this morning. we're talking about kennedy cousin, michael skakel.
7:09 am
he's been in prison more than ten years now, convicted of killing his neighbor. now, a judge is granting him a new trial. in a stunning reversal of fortune, a connecticut judge has thrown out the 2002 murder conviction of michael skakel, granting him a new trial, because his attorney failed to adequately represent him. skakel, the nephew of rfk widow, ethel kennedy, is serving a 20-year sentence for the 1975 halloween night murder of his neighbor and friend, 15-year-old martha moxley. not charged until 25 years after the crime was committed, skakel has always maintained his innocence. >> what i do every day, is pray to god and to martha, that whoever did this crime is brought to justice. >> reporter: skakel's current attorney, hubert santos, argued that his trial attorney, mickey sherman, failed to present crucial evidence, and was too enamored with the media. >> he was pre occupied with
7:10 am
glitter and celebrity. you know, he said at one point to the bar association, when he spoke to them, he intended to have a lot of fun on this case. you know, there's a man's life at stake. >> reporter: in wednesday's ruling, the judge said of skakel's trial attorney, failures were significant and did not provide a constitutionally adequate defense. >> his only crime was having a bad lawyer. >> reporter: this morning, connecticut prosecutors say they will appeal this ruling. skakel's attorneys are reportedly filing a motion for bail. >> there is a distinct possibility that this week could be the last week that michael skakel does any jail time. >> and martha moxley's mother says the judge's ruling does nothing to change her mind about who murdered her daughter. emotions are high in northern california where a young man holding a toy gun has been shot and killed by police. 13-year-old andy lopez was walking down the street carrying a pellet gun designed to look like an ak-47. when police confronted him, they say he raised the gun, prompting them to open fire, shooting
7:11 am
several rounds. and police later then displayed that toy gun on the right next to a real rifle to show the similarities. the officers are on administrative leave pending an investigation. breaking news overseas, two american sailors have been kidnapped off the coast of nigeria according to a government source. the captain and another was taking from that ship. we'll bring you any developments' we get them. a dramatic scene in los angeles. a speeding car off a freeway into this house, crashing through the garage. the driver fled the scene. everyone in the house, amazingly, is okay. not everyone okay after last night, though. a controversial start to the world series. watch this ground ball. the ump calls the runner out. but hello, where's the ball? very smartly decided to talk about it. and reversed the call. that set up a three-run inning
7:12 am
for the red sox who never looked back, winning 8-1. here's the really sad one. these are my cards. i was at the '82 world series. they had more errors than run. >> seriously? game one? >> maybe it was the fact it was so cold. maybe it's the cold air. >> maybe that's what it was. they're used to those midwestern indian summers. in the absence of josh. you're josh's proxy, i think. we're going to move on to the latest on the young man who confessed online to driving drunk and killing another driver. the video by matthew cordle went viral. he was charged and sentenced to several years in prison. abc's chief legal affairs anchor, dan abrams, spoke to cordal earlier this morning and joins us now. >> good morning, robin. cordle initially denied any wrongdoing. but surprised his own lawyers with his youtube confession video. he pled guilty. and yesterday, he was in court to learn his sentence.
7:13 am
>> the court has imposed a sentence of 6 1/2 years. >> reporter: there was almost no reaction from matthew cordle, after hearing the next six-plus years of his life will be in a prison cell. >> this case is concluded. >> reporter: perhaps that lack of emotion is because cordal was prepared for what was coming. he effectively turned himself in. and in this candid confession, he vowed to take full responsibility for what he did. >> my name is matthew cordal. and on june 22nd, 2013, i hit and killed vincent canzani. >> reporter: the 3 1/2 minute video, which has been viewed over 2.3 million times ends with this takeaway message. >> i'm begging you, please, don't drink and drive. >> reporter: a lesson that cordal learned the hard way, as he prepares to serve his sentence for aggravated vee hick u lar homicide. thank you all for joining us.
7:14 am
matthew's 6 1/2-year sentence. what was your reaction? >> my reaction was relief. just relief that my family will get closure. hopefully the victim's family will have some measure of closure and begin a healing process and start to move forward. and myself, as well. i can start to move forward, as well. >> were you relieved that the judge did not impose the maximum sentence? >> as i stated in court, there's no fair sentence when it comes to this case because, you know, the loss of someone's life doesn't coordinate to time. >> when you were making this tape, were you thinking to yourself, i'm going to put this out on youtube and this is going to mean i'm going to serve time? >> yes. it was in full knowledge of the possibility i might get the maximum time when i put this on youtube, because i know it would be admissible in court. that's why i stated in the video, i was well aware of what i was doing, just so i couldn't go back on it. and you know, just put it out
7:15 am
there because that message is more important than what time i serve. >> you have no regrets about making that tape? >> no regrets whatsoever. >> the public nature of this confession cut both ways. on the one hand, he got credit from the court for accepting some responsibility. the max could have been eight years. but on the other hand, with the world watching, the judge had to send a message that this was really serious. so, he couldn't be too lenient, either. >> he could have gotten eight. he got 6 1/2. there are people that are skeptics on both sides of why he even did this. and the police were on to him even before he released that video. >> that's right. and so that's why some people have said, look, this was just a marketing ploy to in fact get him a lower sentence. i would say, there are better ways to get a lower sentence. i think there's better ways to get a lower sentence. it does bind the judge to some degree. there are many saying the reason he's doing this, when he gets out of prison, he's going to be able to have a career as a spokesperson. some people accepted it as face.
7:16 am
others are more cynical. >> and a lifetime suspension from driving. >> that's right. he'll never be able to drive. there's other conditions involved. there's a fine, et cetera, beyond just the prison time. >> dan, thanks very much. >> thanks, guys. now, to pope francis and his crusade to put the catholic church on the side of the poor. the latest example, his decision to suspend a top german bishop for extravagant spending. abc's dan harris has more on how the pope cracked down on the man they call the bishop of bling. >> reporter: it is a tough blow for the formerly high-riding church official now known as the bishop of bling. his real name is bishop franz-peter tebartz van elst. and on wednesday, he was temporarily expelled from his diocese in germany as the vatican investigates his new $43 million home, including reportedly 475,000 bucks for walk-in closets, 20,000 for the bishop's bathtub and a heated roof for his personal chapel. not a smart move when your boss, pope francis, is the kind of guy
7:17 am
that washes the feet of the poor, drives a beat-up old car, carries his bags and lives in a simple room, instead of the fancy papal apartment. the bishop has defended the massive price tag for the new complex where he lives, saying he was actually for ten projects. but he has other problems. first-class flights, including on a trip to india to minister to the poor. and allegations of an authoritarian leadership style. it is catastrophic what the bishop has done says this german believer. he should be fired. the bishop was summoned to see the pope this week. he flew coach, by the way. the vatican says it will conduct a fair investigation. but many suspect the bishop's fate is already set. he may never again get to live in those fancy digs that got him in so much trouble. for "good morning america," dan harris, abc news, new york. >> when your nickname is the
7:18 am
bishop of bling, something's not quite right. >> and the pope has been so consistent. every day, every week, he takes another action that shows where his heart is. >> that's the truth. let's get some weather from sam. >> i tell you, everyone wants to warm things up a little bit this morning. we're getting lots of tweets. we've had not only cold air but some snow in the mountains of west virginia, anywhere from hagerstown, maryland, just outside of d.c. amy and i were talking about this. get a little elevation west of d.c. and you get that snow. this goes back to muncie, indiana. a good kiss of snow there, as well. places reporting in ohio. here's the frost and freeze warnings. 23 states this morning. this is the real chill. peach tree city is saying that south georgia will get the chill here. as the front dips all of the way into north florida as well. so, 39, atlanta. the morning lows. 35 in asheville. 36 in raleigh. washington, d.c. at 43 degrees. new york and boston seem warm compared to what is going on down south. this blast, first hits south. and then swings a little bit east.
7:19 am
it's slightly moderated by the time it gets to the eastern seaboard. look at greenville, birmingham, atlanta, nashville, all southern cities, all dipping into the 30s. good morning opinion i'm abc7 news meteorologist mike nicco with your bay area microclimate forecast. for today, we'll have afternoon sunshine once again, a little hazy, temperatures cooler than average. a slight warming trend this weekend and then we'll flip the switch and autumn returns next week, but the transition will be

7:30 am
each and every one of you are made to be who you are. and that's what is so attractive and beautiful. >> there's selena gomez, on stage at a recent concert. it's what she was saying. she's speaking out about the edgy and even raunchy behavior of superstars. great to have amy robach here. >> you have two, young daughters. you must appreciate what salena does. and we have dramatic testimony in the high-profile case of the doctor charged with his wife's death. another big day in the trial. his 12-year-old daughter could testify against her dad. she's appearing before the judge today. dan and nancy, standing by to weigh in, live, this morning.
7:31 am
there's a lot of buzz this morning from parents, asking this question -- can you really, really raise your kids to be honest? it's a provocative question. and it's being raised by a celebrity mom, lauren holly. looking at her right there. >> yeah. >> mine are honest. also, we say this a lot. but it really is a "fifty shades" frenzy. how do you cast a leading man just days before you start filming. >> i'll tell you how. they hire you. >> they didn't hire me. they hired this guy. he's the real deal. he's going to be the new christian grey. right now, we have to get to the case we've been tracking. the utah doctor on trial for murdering his wife. two of his doctors set to testify against him. and our legal team, dan abrams and nancy grace, to weigh in on the latest.
7:32 am
first, here's the latest from aditi roy. >> reporter: the latest in the case, started with 50-year-old michele macneill being rushed to the emergency room. dr. leo wagner examined her. macneill was declared dead a short time later. the mother of eight left behind a husband of nearly three decades, now on trial for her death. wagner testified that macneill made an unusual request in the e.r. >> he offered me money to continue my resuscitation and not quit. >> reporter: prosecutors say he gave his wife a deadly dose of prescription pills. his attorneys say michele macneill died from a heart problem. they also heard from the girlfriend of their son, damian. >> at the time, it did seem strange, yes. >> reporter: this morning, macneill is expected to come face-to-face with his daughter,
7:33 am
rachel, when she takes the stand. she has long believed that her father is guilty. speaking about the case in 2012, on "20/20." >> you just wake up. and you try to do what you can. and it's living a nightmare. >> reporter: another key family member who could take the stand today, little eda macneill, who was 6 when she found michele unconscious in the bathtub. this morning, they will hold a pretrial hearing. >> she was there. she saw the body. she was at the crime scene before the cops got there. so, why she's important is, she can potentially undermine martin's claims. >> reporter: a family divided on both sides of the courtroom. for "good morning america," aditi roy, abc news, los angeles. >> all right. we're going to bring in our legal team now. abc news chief legal affairs anchor, dan abrams. and there in atlanta, nancy grace. host of "nancy grace" on hln. good to have you both. dan, starting with you here in
7:34 am
the studio. we talked about this last week about the older daughters, not really ever standing by their father. and now, going to testify. >> this is the daughter who has been less suspicious. the other daughters, long suspicious. and it was rachel who came to believe that the facts started coming out, as her father started talking to her afterwards. she later came to believe he did this. it's not as if these girls went into it trying to figure out a way that their dad would be guilty. it was just the opposite, which is everything that this girl learned, as time went on, said to herself, this man that i idolized, this man i followed, this man, for my whole life i looked up to, was the one who killed my mother. >> nancy, it's never a good thing when the daughters are against the father, who's on trial right here. no way of spinning that to be a good thing. >> well, it's never a good thing for the defense.
7:35 am
and we're expecting blockbuster testimony in that provo courtroom. rachel, we hear a lot about eda, the 6-year-old, now, 12, that found her mom's body in a blue jogging suit face-up in the family bathtub, eyes open, looking up, hair going down the drain. but rachel is also going to be a very, very important witness. she was an older daughter at the time. she is a dental hygienist in salt lake city. and if you comb over her preliminary testimony, you learn that her father was her favorite. she idolized him. unlike some of the others who loved the mom most. and this is very difficult for her. and a fact that has not come out yet, i learned it in the preliminary transcript, is that rachel is the one, when the neighbors and the e.m.t.s arrive on the scene, her clothes are gone, her -- the towels, no towels for her to take a bath with. rachel finds the bloody, soaked towels and clothes hidden in the
7:36 am
garage. and that was done before the e.m.t.s got there and before the neighbors got there, which means macneill cleaned up the scene before anybody got there. he was not doing cpr. >> let's remember, we're talking about little eda, a 6-year-old at a hearing today, to determine how much testimony can they get from her now, 12 years old. but if you believe the prosecution, it wasn't just that she stumbled upon the scene. it was that martin macneill set it up so that his little 6-year-old could come upon her dead mother. i mean, that's the part about this that i don't think is talked about enough. the idea that he may have set this up so that this little girl could come upon the mom in the bathtub, so he could figure out a way out of this. that's why it's not just the emotional testimony of a now-12-year-old. she's going to provide important testimony as to exactly what position her mother was in. what clothing she was wearing, et cetera. >> what's your take on little
7:37 am
eda? we have to wait until the judge meets with her, in that preliminary hearing before she can testify. >> that's an interesting point right there because the defense is trying to keep her testimony out. now, she's 12. and the reason they're trying to keep her testimony out, they're saying she's being coached by the sisters and that she will lie. but the law is this. it's black and white letter of the law. she can testify but that she can be cross-examined on whether she has been coached. and the sisters can, too. but to keep her testimony out is against the rules of evidence. her testimony is coming in. >> you have to be very careful. >> you know, dan, there's one more thing, dan, about eda's testimony. you were describing that she found her mom on her back. and she drowned on her back, which is very difficult to drown that way. but the father gave a completely different story.
7:38 am
he told several people that he found her completely naked, leaning over the faucet, as if -- sometimes women wash their hair in the faucet just leaning over. he found her like that. their stories -- they cannot coincide. they cannot jibe together. somebody's lying. and i guarantee you, it's not the 6-year-old. >> at some point. >> there is always, nancy. thank you. one thing that's been consistent -- good to see you, nancy. his odd behavior has been consistent. >> and consistently implicates him. let's go back over to sam and the weather. >> we start with a foggy shot from seattle. a couple of days of fog on the west coast. this is how it looks beautiful from a distance. when you're up in it, it looks like this. visibility is as low as 0.6 miles. i can't see across the street visibility. it's been a real issue. there's a little more fog in that area today. not as bad in some places. there's fog up and down the west coast. but the sunshine breaks through
7:39 am

8:43 am
there. it's always been very fast and very funny. but we've all changed sizes. we've all filled out. i started pregnant. and now, the kids are tall. everybody's been growing. it's hard to look back at the episodes and realize how -- >> just right. maturing. all of you, maturing. >> coming into our own. >> that's it. >> remember when we had you and the other cast members. i've been on set with you. >> i they have treated you to the dunphy's icebox. >> yes, you did. >> it's a special smell. >> it was unique. it was very unique. hard to believe that you guys thought at one point, are we going to get picked up again? are we going to be around for five seasons? >> now that we've been around for five seasons, the goal is so much to keep the quality up. and we don't want -- you can't always remain the media darling. you want to do the best job you can. it's possible we feel more pressure than ever. that's a pregnant lady right there, with twins. >> we're going to show you --
8:44 am
that's when you first were cast. but we'll show you post-twins. this particular scene, it's interesting that you said sometimes when you do a scene, and you get a script, i don't know if your character should do this. such the case here, when your character, kind of shows up in front of -- >> oh. i know what this one is. >> your daughter's girlfriend's boyfriend. >> is this the nurse in boobs. >> the big coming out party. >> oh, boy. >> hey, miss dunphy. >> hey, dillon. >> you know i can see you, right? >> where is haley at? >> haley in the bathroom. she'll be back in a minute. >> why would you feel self-conscious about that? >> the a -- that scene. i just had the twins and i was nursing. well, this is kind of a borrowed body. you know, this is a temporary situation. and that exactly was the

8:51 am
we set up the slow cooker. we take this ragu, which can be made ahead of time. and we're going to put this on the bottom, lara. george, if you would, you can mix that for me, that would be great. now, what we're going to do, is take about three or four noodles on the bottom. i did the sauce first. >> right. >> then, we're going to put the noodles down. okay? then, we have that. then, what we're going to do, is take another layer of the sauce. and then, what we're going to do is get that nice and even. and then, we're going to add some cheese. we're going to add some grated mozzarella. we're going to add some provolone cheese, just because i like the sharpness of provolone. >> i usually don't think of provolone in lasagna. that's the emeril way. i would think this could get tricky in the serving portion. >> it could get tricky when you
8:52 am
took in 26-degree weather here. george, give me a layer there. spread that around. more noodles. >> and you continue that. >> give me another good layer or two of sauce. now, we come over here, guys. george, unveil. here it is. you take this slow cooker. and this cooks for four hours. look at this. >> wow. >> all right. four hours. you have one? in the multicooker, not only do rice. we made a stir fry with beef and vegetables. i use the local green beans. >> you use the rice setting, brown the meat, take the meat out and put everything in and do
