Welch is McCluskey’sfiancee and cousin. Renwick,who turns 37 on today, wascaptured in Colorado.Province, 42, was caughtMonday as he walked insleepy Meeteetse, Wyo., stepsfrom a church where he satin the pews a day earlier andsang “Your Grace Is Enough.”He was scheduled for an extra-dition hearing today morning,authorities said.Efforts to find McCluskey,Province and Welch intensi-fied after they were linked toa double homicide in NewMexico, with the case airingSaturday on “America’s MostWanted.”On Sunday, Provincewalked into MeeteetseCommunity Church, about 60miles outside of Yellowstone,wearing blue jeans, a bluecheckered flannel shirt, anda camouflage backpack slungover one shoulder, worship-per Jay Curtis said.

GUANTANAMO BAYNAVAL BASE, Cuba — Eightyears after his capture as a teen-ager on an Afghan battlefield,a long-delayed trial is begin-ning today for Guantanamo’syoungest detainee.A U.S. military judge ruledMonday that purported con-fessions by Canadian detain-ee Omar Khadr can be usedagainst him, dismissing argu-ments they were tainted bymistreatment and dashing thedefense’s last hope for derail-ing the trial in the slaying of anAmerican soldier.His age — Khadr was only15 when he was captured in2002 — has exposed the admin-istration of President BarackObama to criticism from childadvocates. The prosecutionwill receive added scrutiny asthis is the first trial under theembattled war-crimes tribu-nals inherited from the Bushadministration.Jury selection from a poolof U.S. military officers beginstoday and opening argumentsare planned for Wednesday ina trial expected to last roughlythree weeks.While military prosecutorsdescribe Khadr as a clear-eyedal-Qaida fighter, defense law-yers say Khadr was himself avictim, forced into war by afamily with close ties to Osamabin Laden. His father, AhmedSaid Khadr, was an Egyptian-born Canadian citizen andalleged terrorist financier.“He’s not a real Talibanwarrior. He’s a kid who wasput in an unfortunate situa-tion,” said Dennis Edney, aCanadian lawyer for Khadr.His capture on July 27, 2002,followed a lengthy firefightbetween U.S. Special Forcesand men holed up inside a mud-walled al-Qaida compound ineastern Afghanistan. As sol-diers entered the compoundKhadr allegedly lobbed a gre-nade that killed U.S. Army Sgt.1st Class Christopher Speer of Albuquerque, New Mexico.Khadr, who was shot twicein the back during the fight,was treated by U.S. medics andlater flown to this U.S. Navybase in southeastern Cuba.He has denied throwing thegrenade and pleaded not guiltyMonday to all five chargesagainst him, including mur-der, conspiracy and spying. Hefaces a maximum life sentenceif convicted.His attorneys contend thecase relies on confessionsextracted following abuse inAfghanistan and Guantanamo,but the judge in the case, ArmyCol. Pat Parrish, said Mondaythat he would allow Khadr’sstatements as evidence.Defense attorneys say theywill counter the statementswith testimony from interroga-tors including former ArmySgt. Joshua Claus, who saidat a pretrial hearing that hescared Khadr into confessingby making up a story aboutan uncooperative detainee whowas sent to an American prisonto be raped.Some officials inWashington were reported-ly reluctant to see the caseadvance to trial in the face of criticism from opponents suchas UNICEF head AnthonyLake, a former Obama adviser,who warned it could set a dan-gerous international precedentand lead to more youths beingvictimized by war.Negotiations on a plea agree-ment broke down, however,when Khadr rejected an offer of 30 years in prison — five moreyears in Guantanamo, plus 25in Canada — in exchange forpleading guilty to all charg-es, according to Edney, theCanadian lawyer.Where other Western coun-tries have successfully lobbiedfor the return of their nationalsfrom Guantanamo, Canada hasrefused to intervene despite arecent federal court ruling thatordered it to remedy its failureto protect Khadr’s rights.Khadr will sit for trial in thesame hilltop courthouse wherein 2006 he made the first of many appearances before theon-again, off-again tribunalsystem.It was later in 2006 thatthe U.S. Supreme Court struckdown one version of the mili-tary trials, known as commis-sions, before Congress and theBush administration came upwith new trial rules.Delphos Police werecalled to the 900 block of East Seventh Street at 7:41p.m. Monday to investigate aburglary.The resident(s) reportedsometime in the past few days,someone had gained entry tothe residence and stole per-sonal property.
