Texas... the man accused of killing six of his family members collapsed in court during a reading of his crimes. Ron Lee Haskell had to be wheeled out of the courtroom today. He is charged with killing his ex-wife's sister and brother-in-law, and four of the couple's children in what police call an execution style killing. Haskell's attorney says his client is mentally ill. Court records show he has a history of domestic violence...

Florida... a fire tears through a boat off Watson Island this afternoon. There are reports that two people on board jumped into the water to get away from the flames. Firefighters spent hours battling the blaze. As of early Friday evening, no word on the condition of those on-board, or on what sparked the fire in the first place...

New York... The Rubik's cube is turning 40, and taking a tour of the Hudson River. A giant replica of the cube passed some historic NYC landmarks, including the Statue of Liberty before returning to Staten Island. There is a weekend-long exhibition set for the iconic toy and its creator ErnĂ³ Rubik, who turns 70 on Sunday. And with that, this puzzle is solved on this USA Update.
