Miss USA crowned

Connecticut accountant Erin Brady was named "Miss USA" on Sunday in Las Vegas. In the pageant's final minutes, she answered without hesitation a question about the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to uphold widespread DNA tests. "If someone is being prosecuted and committed a crime, it should happen. There are so many crimes that if that's one step closer to stopping them, then we should be able to do so," Brady said.
