Douglas Ioven and Muibat Williamson both had to work on Christmas 2013. Ioven was starting his shift as a SEPTA police officer, and Williamson was heading home from hers as an overnight neurology nurse at Einstein Medical Center, when they met at a Dunkin' Donuts shop in the concourse of Suburban Station. Christmas only went downhill from there. On Tuesday, both prepared to relive their very un-merriest of Christmases past in a Philadelphia courtroom, where Ioven, 44, went on trial on charges of witness retaliation and intimidation, official oppression, assault, and other offenses for arresting Williamson after an argument about cutting in line.

A line of Gloucester Township police officers stood to the right outside the township's municipal complex Monday, as parked police vehicles flashed their blue and red lights to the left. In the middle was Liam Lindsey, 7, who arrived in the front seat of a police cruiser. Wearing an orange hoodie and blue jeans, he stepped out to applause. Liam was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2013. Treatment and chemotherapy have been tough - it sometimes has made him sick - and a relative had died from the same illness at a young age, the family said.
