St. Louis County Police have officially charged a South County school teacher with sexual assault.

Forty seven year old James Wilder III was arrested at Sperreng Middle School on Tuesday and charged Wednesday with six counts of second-degree sodomy for crimes that prosecutors say occurred between August 1996 and September 1997.

The alleged victim, who was 16 years old at the time, came forward this summer with the allegations. In Missouri, if a victim of a sexual crime is younger than 18, prosecution must start within 30 years after the victim reaches age 18. Wilder is being held in the St. Louis County jail on a $50,000 cash-only bond.

KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A judge says a northeast Missouri man accused of stabbing and dismembering an elderly neighbor is not competent to stand trial.

Adair County Prosecuting Attorney Matt Wilson says a judge found 49-year-old Paul R. Potter of Kirksville incompetent for trial after he underwent a psychiatric evaluation.

Potter faces first-degree murder and other charges in the January death of 74-year-old Willis Edward Meredith. Prosecutors say Potter stabbed Meredith, chopped up his body and started fires to try to conceal the crimes. He is also accused of throwing the victim's arms at witnesses before his arrest.

The Kirksville Daily Express reports that Potter's status will be reviewed in six months.

Online court records indicate Potter was evaluated at Fulton State Hospital. He pleaded not guilty in April.

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) — A judge in southwestern Illinois has sentenced a man to 47 years in prison for beating to death his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that 24-year-old Julian Gates told the St. Clair County judge Friday that he "snapped" when the girl urinated in her bed.

Gates, who pleaded guilty to first-degree murder, told investigators he beat Mia Caito with a belt, his hand and an extension cord.

Investigators say the girl was covered "head to toe" in bruises and died of blunt force trauma in the January 2012 assault.

In a victim impact statement, the girl's mother, Brandy Johnson, told the court the little girl loved hugs and kisses, wearing her hair in a ponytail and watching "Dora the Explorer."
