Vatican sets decision on butler in leaks case


VATICAN CITY -- The Vatican said it planned to announce its decision Monday on whether to order the Pope's butler to stand trial in the theft and leaking of secret documents that have embarrassed the church.

Paolo Gabriele was arrested May 23, so far the only person ensnared in a criminal investigation. He was released under house arrest July 21 pending a decision on whether to indict him.

The documents point to corruption and power struggles in the church hierarchy.
