The news begins anew with "Studio B"...

Joseph Edward Duncan III (search), a convicted sex offender accused of kidnapping Shasta and Dylan Groene, is due in court Tuesday, as authorities await lab results for "possible" human remains that might confirm their worst fears that 9-year-old Dylan is dead. The grim news cast a cloud over the joyful reunion of Shasta, 8, and her father over the weekend. So why is a convicted sex offender, who has spent much of his adult life in jail, out on the streets? We'll ask Greg Skordas, defense attorney and former chief of the sex crime unit in the D.A.'s Office in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Then, where does the investigation into Natalee Holloway's disappearance stand now that Joran van der Sloot is the only remaining suspect detained? Judge Andrew Napolitano, FOX News' senior judicial analyst, weighs in.

And, President Bush asks both conservatives and liberals to tone down what he calls the "heated rhetoric" ahead of his nomination to fill the seat on the Supreme Court left vacant by retiring Justice Sandra Day O'Connor (search). So how nasty will the battle over the bench get? We'll get the lowdown from Juan Williams, senior national correspondent for NPR and FOX News political analyst.
