Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton formally announced Sunday that she would be pursuing the presidency for a second time. Clinton announced through a 2 minute video that went viral and featured Clinton telling Americans that they deserve a champion and that she would like to be their champion. The announcement came minutes after emails from Clinton’s campaign chairman alerting donors and associates of her candidacy. This announcement also began what is being considered one of the least contested races for the democratic presidential nomination in recent history due to the lack of an incumbent. It could also be the first time a woman captures a party’s nomination.

Boko Haram militants have wreaked havoc in Northeastern Nigeria over the course of 2015, forcing hundreds of thousands of children to flee for their lives. According to a report released by UNICEF today, 800,000 children have fled their homes and hundreds have been killed in the process. According to the Washington Post, Boko Haram has burned and looted homes and schools in a number of cities. Boko Haram first came to the world’s attention last April, when they kidnapped more than 200 schoolgirls in a small Nigerian village. Tomorrow marks one year since their disappearance.

It has taken nearly seven years, but the Jodi Arias murder case ends today as Arizona’s Superior Court judge decided to sentence Arias to life in prison. According to USA Today, Arias was sentenced for the gruesome murder of her ex-boyfriend, Travis Alexander, in 2008. 34-year-old Arias was found guilty of first-degree murder in May of 2013. Alexander was found dead in the shower of his Arizona home in 2008. He had been shot in the head and nearly stabbed 30 times with a slit throat. The jury that convicted her found the murder was especially cruel, making Arias eligible for the death penalty. However, that same jury was unable to reach a unanimous decision on whether she should live or die. A second-trial was seated last year to consider the life-or-death sentence and ended in a deadlock as well. Today’s ruling ended one of the more dramatic and notorious murder trials in recent history.
