    Confirmation that Stevens was one of the victims:

    Dave Dittman, a former aide and longtime family friend of former Sen. Ted Stevens says Stevens was killed in a plane crash near Dillingham Monday night. Nine people were on board, including former NASA Chief Sean O'Keefe. Five people were killed in the crash, but other identities were not known, nor are the conditions of the survivors.

    Did you forget this part of the story?



    Ted Stevens conviction overturned
    A judge has overturned Alaska Senator Ted Stevens's conviction for corruption because of mistakes made by prosecutors during his trial.
    US District Judge Emmet Sullivan said the prosecutors' misconduct during the trial was the most serious he had ever seen.
    "In nearly 25 years on the bench, I've never seen anything approaching the mishandling and misconduct that I've seen in this case," he said.
    Prosecutors made a number of errors during the trial, justice department officials said, the chief among which was the failure to make available notes of a crucial interview in which a witness made a statement that contradicted evidence he gave later under oath.
    Justice Sullivan has appointed a special prosecutor to investigate the justice department's trial team for possible criminal contempt charges.
