Two people shot, killed at North County bar

ST. LOUIS (AP) - St. Louis police are looking for suspects in the deaths of two people at a bar.

Police say the two victims were at Starz Bar separately when shootings began early Sunday.

The victims were identified as 45-year-old Timothy Blair of north St. Louis County and 32-year-old Kemesa Newble of East St. Louis.

Police say a fight began inside the bar and all of the patrons were asked to leave.

Blair was standing with a group of men when he was shot in the abdomen by an unknown male. Newble was inside her car when she was caught in a crossfire between two men. Both died later at St. Louis hospitals.

The suspects fled on foot.

Four more potential victims came to police today, saying they had sex with 22-year-old Michael Johnson, who is accused of knowingly spreading HIV.

Johnson was charged on Thursday for recklessly risking infection of another with HIV--a charge that carries a 30 year prison term if he is convicted. Johnson was a member of the Lindenwood University wrestling team who learned his HIV-positive status in January. Prosecutors say he then engaged in sexual activity with at least one victim without disclosing the diagnosis. Court documents say the victim contracted HIV from Johnson.

The St. Charles Police Department is asking any other individuals who may have been in an intimate relationship with Johnson to contact the Detective Bureau at (636) 949-3320.

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - Southwestern Illinois authorities say a 28-year-old man stabbed two people during a weekend home invasion in what may be a case of mistaken identity.

Madison County prosecutors charged Grant Connor of Bridgeview with two counts of attempted first-degree murder and home invasion.

State's Attorney Tom Gibbons says Connor knocked on a Glen Carbon home's door claiming to have a disabled car. Then he charged, stabbing a 35-year-old man who offered to let him use the telephone.

That victim managed to grab a knife and stabbed Connor in the throat while a 33-year-old woman tried to intervene before also being stabbed.

The victims were released from a hospital. Investigators say Connor may have been searching for someone else with a similar name.

Court records don't show whether Connor has an attorney

ST. CHARLES, Mo. -- Authorities say the disappearance of a St. Charles man was part of a scheme to fake his own death and cover up allegations that he sexually assaulted a 6-year-old girl.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Raymond David Avett of St. Charles disappeared in June, leaving suicide notes at several locations, including inside his Ford Explorer that was found abandoned in downtown St. Louis. He turned up three weeks later in Maryland.

Avett and his former girlfriend, 34-year-old Jennifer L. Callaway, were both charged Wednesday with concealing a felony.

Authorities allege that Callaway coerced Avett into giving her his home, SUV, boat and life insurance in exchange for not telling police about the alleged sexual assault.

Both suspects are jailed, Avett on $250,000 bond, Callaway on $200,000 bond.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - An Oklahoma doctor is charged with using a teenage Missouri boy to produce child pornography.

The U.S. attorney's office says Shelby Coleman was arrested over the weekend after going to a Springfield hotel and texting instructions for the 16-year-old to come to his room. The 36-year-old Tulsa Women's Health Clinic doctor was charged Monday in federal court and is being held in the Greene County Jail. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.

Bank robber sentenced to life in prison

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A 40-year-old man with a history of robbing banks in Kansas and Missouri has been sentenced to life in prison for two holdups he was convicted of committing last year.

The U.S. Attorney's office says Eddie Prince Roberts of Columbia, Missouri won't be eligible for parole under the sentence he received Friday in federal court.

Roberts was convicted earlier of robbing Boone County National Bank in Columbia of more than $4,400 in April 2012, and Landmark Bank in Columbia of roughly $8,200 the following month.

He was arrested after the Landmark robbery following a foot chase in which he fought with an officer and was shot during the encounter.

Roberts was convicted in 1993 of robbing five banks in Kansas. He was also convicted of robbing a Missouri bank in 2000.
