Ethan Couch, the Texas teenager given probation for four intoxication-manslaughter convictions, is to return to the United States from Mexico on Wednesday. Couch, 18, was taken into custody in Puerto Vallarta Monday evening after spending eleven days on the run from local, state and federal law enforcers. Couch’s mother, Tanya, was also arrested and could face criminal charges of helping her son to avoid apprehension. Couch had a blood/alcohol level three times the legal limit when he killed four pedestrians with his pickup truck in 2013. His lawyer argued that Couch’s privileged upbringing left him unable to tell right from wrong before the crash. ABC’s Jim Ryan will have the latest.

Iran has met a key requirement of a nuclear deal with six world powers by completing the transfer of most of its enriched uranium to Russia … at least according to a senior Russian diplomat they have. Under the July 14 deal, Iran must ship out all except around 660 pounds of the close to nine tons of low-enriched uranium it has stockpiled. Its removal is a key obligation taken on by Iran under the deal, which aims to reduce its ability to make nuclear weapons, something Tehran says it has no interest in.
