Trial underway for man shot by Missouri trooper

Wednesday, 09 October 2013 13:39 Published in Local News

UNION, Mo. (AP) - The trial is under way for an eastern Missouri publisher of an anti-government newsletter facing multiple charges for a 2012 confrontation with state troopers.

The Washington Missourian reports that 47-year-old Jeffrey Weinhaus of Franklin County is charged with interfering with a judicial official, felony possession of a controlled substance, resisting arrest and assault of law enforcement officers.

Weinhaus was critically injured in a confrontation near St. Clair in September 2011 when he was shot by a state trooper after allegedly reaching for a handgun.

Jurors on Tuesday saw a video of Weinhaus saying he had a right to "go in there and blast" officials he felt were corrupt.

 

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri lawmakers have blocked a proposed rule that could have expanded the use of ethanol in gasoline.

A legislative panel voted Wednesday to halt a rule change that would have allowed regular gasoline to be sold with a 15 percent blend of ethanol, which generally is made from corn.

Committee members said the proposal by the Department of Agriculture went beyond what is allowed in state law. They cited a 2006 Missouri law that requires a 10 percent blend of ethanol in gasoline. The proposed rule would not have mandated E15 but would have allowed it.

The committee's vote is like a temporary moratorium. The full Legislature can decide whether to permanently block the rule when it convenes in January. Or the department could withdraw the proposed rule change.

Missouri returns most of propofol stock to supplier

Wednesday, 09 October 2013 13:17 Published in Local News

Most of the Missouri Department of Corrections' supply of propofol is headed back to the Louisiana supplier. Supplier Morris and Dickson requested the drugs be returned a year ago and the state says they are complying with the request.

The state's plan to use the anesthetic for executions has come under fire of late. The vast majority of the drug is manufactured in Germany and the European Union is considering export controls if it is used in an execution.

It is unclear what effect the return will have on planned executions--the first scheduled for October 23. The Post-Dispatch reports that the state still has some propofol in stock.
