EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - An East St. Louis woman is jailed on $1 million bond after being accused in the weekend stabbing death of her husband.
Prosecutors in southwestern Illinois' St. Clair County charged 44-year-old Tammy Carpenter with first-degree murder in the death early Saturday of 58-year-old Jerome Carpenter.
Authorities say the stabbing took place after an argument, and that Jerome Carpenter died later at a hospital.
Online court records don't show whether Tammy Carpenter has an attorney. She does not have a listed home telephone number.
Jerome Carpenter's funeral arrangements are pending.
Homicide detectives are investigating after an injured man stumbled into a south city convenience store and collapsed overnight. Police were called to the 7-11 at Gravois and Bates just before 1 a.m.. Police say the man had been shot, but they aren't sure whether the shooting happened at the 7-11 or another location. Fox 2 reports that St. Louis Fire Department medics rushed the injured man to the hospital, but doctors pronounced him dead shortly after he arrived. So far the victim has only been identified as an Asian male, about 30-years-old. Police have no suspects.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri has received a federal grant to test a new type of road treatment intended to keep cars from slipping off highways when it rains or snows.
The Missouri Department of Transportation says it will apply the "high friction surface treatment" to a pair of curves on U.S. 54 and Missouri 179 in Jefferson City.
If the agency has enough money, it may also apply the treatment at two sites on Interstate 44 near Rolla.
Missouri received $150,000 for the project from the Federal Highway Administration. A total of 13 states and the District of Columbia received money through the grant program that encourages innovative technologies on roads and bridges.
