French rugby federation president Bernard Laporte has resigned from his position. The move, confirmed by France's sports minister, came after Laporte was convicted in a corruption case last month. His stepping down came a day after French rugby clubs voted against accepting Patrick Buisson as interim president. Buisson was nominated by the suspended Laporte to replace him on an interim basis while he fought his suspended two-year sentence on corruption charges. A Paris court in December found Laporte guilty of passive corruption, influence peddling, illegal interest taking and misuse of corporate assets. The French sports minister and the French rugby league called for new general elections within six weeks.

Prosecutors said at Brian Walshe's arraignment that he used Google to look up ways to dismember and dispose of a body. His wife, Ana Walshe, has not been seen since Jan. 1. Northeastern University School of Law professor Daniel Medwed says prosecutors have plenty of other evidence to make their case, including blood and DNA.
