EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois man has been ordered to spend nine years in prison for the debilitating 2011 beating of a baby.
 
The Alton Telegraph reports that 26-year-old Matthew Fields of Hartford was sentenced this week after pleading guilty to a count of aggravated battery of a child.
 
Prosecutors say Fields was alone with the then-9-week-old baby in October 2011 when he allegedly shook and squeezed the child.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The Oregon owners of a 22-pound housecat who trapped them in their bedroom after attacking their baby say they're not giving up on their pet and are getting it medical attention and therapy.
 
Two days after police arrived to subdue the 4-year-old Himalayan cat, owner Lee Palmer of Portland says he's taking the feline to a veterinarian. A pet psychologist also is due at the house to see the cat, named Lux.
 
Palmer says the animal attacked after the 7-month-old child pulled its tail. The baby wasn't injured.
 
On the 911 call, the cat can be heard screeching in the background as Palmer says in a panicked voice: "He's charging us. He's at our bedroom door." Palmer also tells the dispatcher the cat has a "history of violence."
 
Officers used a dog snare to capture the cat, and placed it in a crate.

FORISTELL, Mo. (AP) - An eastern Missouri man has been sentenced to seven years in prison for attacking his 11-year-old son with a baseball bat.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the sentence for 46-year-old Mark Alan Calloni of Foristell follows his plea of no contest to child abuse charges filed in July.

   St. Louis Community College Trustees are honoring the instructor who stopped an attack on a student in a Meramec campus bathroom last April, by creating a scholarship in her name.  

   Adjunct Professor Aurora Hill had heard Blythe Grupe's screams and rushed to her aid, confronting her attacker and restraining him until police arrived.  Eighteen yr. old Jevon Mallory has been charged in the attack. 

   Hill, who teaches English part time at the school, was honored with a resolution and standing ovation at last night's board meeting.  The $5,000 scholarship in her name will be aimed at helping students who struggled in high school make the transition to college.

   The victim was also at last night's ceremony.  Blythe Grupe told Fox 2 News that Hill's actions made the difference that day and she glad the college is honoring her teacher.  "It's just been such a relief knowing that good things can come out of this," Grupe said.

   The school's mishandling of the attack aftermath led to resignations by several high level college officials.

Justin Deryke says he was just trying to put his 7-year-old niece "out of her misery" when he killed her over the weekend.

Officials say autopsy results contradict his story. Deryke claims he was watching a movie with Willow Long over the weekend when she allegedly scratched his arm. He became angry and chased Willow out of the house. He says she fell into a brush pile and a branch stabbed her in the neck. That is when Deryke says he got a knife and stabbed the girl to death.

The autopsy shows Willow had defensive wounds on her hands and that casts doubt on Deryke's story.

Willow's 3-year-old brother has been taken into protective custody.
