Correction: English murder law story

LONDON (AP) — In a story Sept. 8 about prospective changes to England's homicide laws, The Associated Press erroneously attributed a statement made to the BBC supporting such reforms. It was the former director of public prosecutions, Ken Macdonald, not the current director of public prosecutions, Keir Starmer, who said: "Many of us think that that's an aspect of the law which needs reforming. We should have degrees of murder, rather in the way they do in the U.S."
