'Jeopardy!' host injured chasing burglar

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The woman accused of stealing cash, a bracelet and other items from Alex Trebek's hotel room is being ordered to stay at least 150 yards from the "Jeopardy!" host and his wife.

A judge Thursday also set Lucinda Moyers' bail at $625,000, noting that the two-time convicted burglar could face an extended sentence under California's three-strikes law if she's found guilty again.

San Francisco Superior Court Judge Jeff Ross said a public defender would be assigned to the 56-year-old woman. She appeared in court in an orange jumpsuit but won't enter a plea until her arraignment set for Monday morning.

Trebek says he ruptured his right Achilles heel after he awoke early Tuesday to someone in his hotel room and chased Moyers down the hall. He's scheduled to have surgery Friday.
