    A Brazilian rancher charged with ordering the murder in 2005 of American nun and Amazon defender Dorothy Stang has been sentenced to 30 years in jail for homicide.

    Vitalmiro Bastos de Moura had been tried three times before but his lawyers appealed and the supreme court annulled Moura's latest conviction. The high court said he was not given enough time to prepare his defence during the trial in 2010.........

    Stang, born in Dayton, Ohio, spent three decades trying to preserve the rainforest and defend the rights of poor settlers who confronted powerful ranchers seeking their lands in the Amazon's wild frontier. She was gunned down in February 2005 with six shots fired at close range from a revolver.........
