(AP) - Family and friends will gather to remember an Albuquerque woman who died after an in-flight accident on a Southwest Airlines plane that made an emergency landing in Philadelphia.

The 43-year-old bank executive and mother of two died Tuesday from injuries suffered when one of the plane's engines exploded during the flight, sending shrapnel through a window.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - Police in Albuquerque have identified the victim in a fatal shooting incident.

Police say another person is hospitalized in stable condition following the shooting. They're still searching for suspects in the homicide. KOB-TV reports that it's the 23rd homicide so far this year in Albuquerque.

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe's city manager has resigned at the request of the mayor. City Manager Brian Snyder had approved pay hikes of 10 percent and 15 percent for 37 staff members on the eve of the Mayor Alan Webber's inauguration last month. Webber says the municipal government will halt the pay increases Snyder had approved. The mayor has now conceded that a policy enacted in 1992 required City Council approval for the pay raises.
