Here is the latest Wyoming news from The Associated Press

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — The Department of Veterans Affairs says six employees at the VA Medical Center in Cheyenne and a clinic in Fort Collins should be disciplined for manipulating data about veteran care. The VA has proposed unspecified action against Cheyenne VA Medical Center Director Cynthia McCormack and Rocky Mountain Network Director Ralph Gigliotti. Investigators say workers were told to make their records show that veterans got appointments within 14 days of the day requested, whether or not it was true.

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — State Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill has lashed out at Gov. Matt Mead, saying at a Cheyenne debate that he sometimes doesn't speak the truth. Hill is challenging Mead for the Wyoming Republican Party's nomination for governor in next month's primary. Mead steered clear of responding directly to Hill's attack at yesterday's League of Woman Voters debate.

RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) — A federal judge has ruled that a 20-year-old woman accused of killing her newborn son on the Wind River Indian Reservation is competent to stand trial. The Riverton Ranger reports that Ardis Sierra Enos of Ethete is scheduled to stand trial Sept. 15. Prosecutors say Enos suffocated her son March 26, minutes after giving birth to him alone in her family home.

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) — An unemployed restaurant worker has been sentenced to two decades in federal prison for robbing banks in Wyoming and two other states. Carl Kieffer of Spokane, Washington, had pleaded guilty in Illinois to charges linked to holdups weeks apart last year, one of them in Lusk, Wyoming. The judge noted that Kieffer has spent 30 of his 49 years behind bars.
