Romanian princess arrested in Oregon

A Romanian princess and her husband are scheduled to appear in court Friday after they were arrested in an alleged cockfighting ring in Oregon.

John Wesley Walker and his wife, Princess Irina Walker, the third daughter of Romania's King Michael, are among six people charged with operating an illegal gambling business, the Justice Department said in a statement.

Those six are also charged, along with 12 others, with conspiracy to violate the animal Welfare Act by conducting unlawful animal fighting ventures on 10 occasions, the statement said.
