After a second Boston University men's ice hockey player was charged with sexual assault, this week Boston University President Robert Brown announced an investigation into the culture of the team.

Meanwhile, a participant in a 2010 Mattapan robbery that left four dead, including a 2-year-old boy, took the witness stand to testify against the two men charged in the shooting. Kimani Washington agreed to testify against co-defendants Edward Washington and Dwayne Moore in exchange for a plea deal.

Plus, the return of former speaker Sal DiMasi — now known as inmate number 27371-038 — cast a shadow over Beacon Hill.

And Senator Scott Brown and Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren took to the media to air their differences over contraception and religion.
