    Suspect in Fatal Belchertown Crash of Blogger Ordered to Turn Over Phone Passcode

    A judge has ordered a Massachusetts teenager charged in connection with a car crash that led to the death of a well-known Amherst blogger to provide his cellphone passcode to investigators.

    A judge Wednesday ruled in favor of a motion from the state seeking 19-year-old Ryan Fellion's phone passcode.

    The crash last February on Route 9 in Belchertown took the life of 62-year-old Larry Kelley, who ran the influential "Only in The Republic of Amherst" blog.

    Police allege Fellion's vehicle crossed over the center line and hit Kelley's car.

    Some Leavenworth County, Kansas, officials are calling for Commissioner Louis Klemp's resignation after he insulted a black woman who had just presented a land-use study to the commission. "I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.

    Police at the time said Fellion was using his cellphone.

    Fellion's attorney said police had no reason to seize the phone and there's no evidence he was using it at the time.

    Fellion pleaded not guilty to negligent motor vehicle homicide.
