The woman who falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of rape nearly four years ago has been charged with attempted murder, arson and other counts after a fight with her boyfriend, Durham, N.C., police said. Crystal Mangum was charged with identity theft, communicating threats, damage to property, resisting an officer and misdemeanor child abuse. The state's investigation of Mangum's claims in 2006 found there was no DNA, witness accounts or other evidence that confirmed her rape report.
