'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

A longtime prosecutor who rose through the ranks of the Allegheny County District Attorney's Office will start a new job Monday to become the deputy administrator for the Allegheny County Courts.

Christopher Connors, District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr.'s first assistant and chief of staff since 2005, has been employed by the office since 1988. He previously headed up the district attorney's domestic violence unit.

Connors, 55 of Upper St. Clair, will fill a seat formerly held by Claire Capristo, who was promoted to court administrator after Ray Billotte left the office to take the same position in Maricopa County, Ariz.

Mike Manko, a spokesman for the district attorney's office, declined to comment on who might replace Connors.
