A St. Louis Alderman who had asked friends and supporters to help him pay for his daughter's college education is withdrawing the request.
Freeman Bosley Sr said he needs just over $14,000 to cover the cost of sending his daughter to St. Xavier University in Chicago. Bosley said he was not sure why the request was raising questions and he did not believe he did anything unethical.
Since the story broke, Bosley told the Post-Dispatch he would return all donations. The ethics commission has also said it is an odd request, but it does not seem to be illegal.
In an emotionally charged courtroom, Clay Waller told the judge he killed his wife Jacque Waller two years ago.
Now Waller is headed to prison to serve a 20 year sentence. As part of a plea deal, Waller told authorities where he buried his wife's body. He explained how he punched her in the face then strangled her to death.

Officials say he could serve as little as 85 percent of the sentence, but it is not likely.
