Condition improves for Va. senator who was stabbed

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - A hospital spokeswoman says the condition of a Virginia state senator who was stabbed has improved to fair.

Angela Taylor of the University of Virginia Medical Center confirmed Tuesday afternoon that Sen. Creigh Deeds' condition had improved from critical, but would not release any other details.

Police say Deeds was stabbed Tuesday morning at his home and taken to the hospital. His 24-year-old son, Gus, died at the residence from a gunshot wound.

Police haven't said who stabbed the senator or how his son was shot. However, they say authorities are not looking for any suspects.
