Philip Bosco

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Philip Bosco, the Tony Award-winning actor known for his roles in films “Working Girl” and “The Savages,” has died. He was 88.

The actor’s daughter, Celia Bosco, said her father died Monday night at his home in Haworth, New Jersey. She says her father had complications with dementia, which is commonly caused by Alzheimer’s disease.

Bosco was a Broadway veteran who won a Tony Award in 1989 for best actor for his role as the head of an opera company in the comedy “Lend Me a Tenor.” He received nominations for his performances in “The Rape of the Belt,” “Heartbreak House,” “You Never Can Tell” and “Moon Over Buffalo.”

Floyd Maestas

DRAPER, Utah (AP) — An inmate on death row in Utah has died.

The Utah Department of Corrections says 63-year-old Floyd Maestas died of natural causes Sunday at the prison in Draper.

Maestas had been behind bars since 2008. He was convicted of aggravated murder in beating death of 72-year-old Donna Bott.

Authorities say Maestas and two other men had broken into her home to steal property to sell for liquor.

Maestas did not have a date set for execution.
