Need to Know News: 'Dr. Death' dead at 83; weak job growth a new warning sign

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For June 3, 2011 – Dr. Jack Kevorkian died early Friday, John Edwards expected to be indicted Friday, Casey Anthony trial continues...

• 'Dr. Death' dead at 83: "Dr. Jack Kevorkian, the Michigan pathologist who put assisted suicide on the world's medical ethics stage, died early Friday, according to a spokesman with Beaumont Hospital. He was 83."

Weak job growth a new warning sign: "In yet another alarm bell of a weakening U.S. economy, the job market took a disappointing turn in May. The economy gained a mere 54,000 jobs in the month, a significant slowdown from 232,000 jobs added to payrolls in April, the government reported Friday."

• Edwards expected to be indicted Friday, sources say: "Former senator and 2008 presidential candidate John Edwards is expected to be indicted on Friday, barring any last-minute developments, a source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN. There have been plea discussions ongoing between Edwards' defense lawyers and federal prosecutors, but no agreement has been reached."

• Juror's hear Casey Anthony's jail interviews: "The murder trial of Casey Anthony resumes Friday, a day after recordings of jail visits three years ago showed the suspect alternatively giggling, crying and saying her sole focus is finding her missing 2-year-old daughter." Watch our sister network, HLN, for updates through out the day from the courtroom.

• Mavs pull off spectacular comeback to steal Game 2: "I will bet you all of the money in my pocket - not much, I admit, but it's all I've got - that Pat Riley felt the same acidic, clammy, bass-drum-beating-in-his-skull feelings that he felt in 1984. This is something he would rather not recall, but here it was in front of him Thursday. The better team lost. His team was beaten. Again."

    The man was nothing more than a damned ghoul. All this praise about him supposedly "helping others and getting people talking about death with dignity" is nothing more than a bunch idiotic liberal BS. "Death with dignity" was just another pretty term for "murder". it is basically the same concept as abortion. The man spat in the face of the law and morality. There was nothing redeeming or honorable about this creepy and mentally ill boil on the but of humanity. I know someone that went to medical school with him and I can tell you that Dr. murder was obsessed with death from a very early age. He would always want to be present in hospitals, while in medical school, when someone was on the brink of death. He was obsessed with death and got-off on it.. He was a waist of space and air on this earth. And as far as I am concerned, the world is a much better place without him and hell is flaring brighter with his entrance there today. Good riddance.
