Republicans don't yet have the votes to block witnesses in the impeachment trial against President Trump, according to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. McConnell told GOP senators in a closed-door meeting that several lawmakers haven't committed to blocking witnesses. Democrats are hoping to call administration insiders who may have knowledge about efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son.        The coronavirus death toll continues to rise in China. Health officials there report more than 130 people have died from the respiratory illness. Nearly six-thousand people in China have been infected, more people than came down with SARS in the early 2000s. Five cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in the U.S. and several others are being watched for possible infections.        The Oscars are planning to honor Kobe Bryant when the award show airs in two weeks. The Academy already paid tribute online with a touching post on Instagram. The NBA legend and his daughter Gianna lost their lives in Sunday's helicopter crash along with seven others. The Academy isn't saying yet how the tribute will be incorporated in the show.       A white supremacist sentenced to death for killing nine members of a black church in South Carolina is appealing. Dylann Roof made the appeal Tuesday, arguing that he was mentally ill when he represented himself. Roof opened fire on a Bible study group at Charleston's Emanuel AME Church in 2015.        A nine-year-old Florida boy is charged with attempted first degree murder after allegedly stabbing his little sister. The boy's mother allegedly found him attacking his sister Monday and yelling "die, die!" The five-year-old girl had to be airlifted to the hospital.       A series of strong earthquakes is rattling the Caribbean. Yesterday afternoon a powerful magnitude 7.7 quake struck about 73 miles northwest of Jamaica. Since then, a number of smaller earthquakes have shaken the area, including a magnitude-6.1 about 35 miles southeast of the Cayman Islands.
