LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — A jury has convicted former Arkansas Treasurer Martha Shoffner of federal bribery and extortion charges for accepting $36,000 in cash from a bond trader to whom she steered state business.
Atletico Madrid booked their place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League for the first time in 17 years as they beat AC Milan 4-1 at the Vicente Calderon to progress 5-1 on aggregate on Tuesday. Diego Costa struck the winner in the first leg three weeks ago and it took him just three minutes to double Atletico's advantage as he acrobatically turned home Koke's cross. Milan were given hope when Kaka headed home Andrea Poli's cross on 27 minutes, but Arda Turan restored Atletico's lead on the night before half-time when his volley from the edge of the box deflected past Christian Abbiati.
