The Jonas Brothers are calling it quits. The trio canceled their tour three weeks ago, citing a deep rift within the band. Kevin Jonas told People Magazine Tuesday that it's over for now. They said the decision was unanimous, but not easy. The popular boy band formed in 2005.

Senators heard Tuesday from Trayvon Martin's mother. Sybrina Fulton testified before a senate committee examining Stand Your Ground laws.

It's been a year since Superstorm Sandy swept through the Northeast. It's a somber anniversary, and some residents still face problems.

The storm killed 181 people.
