A Maplewood man is headed to prison for offering a reward to anyone who killed Maplewood Police Officers.

William Lawrence first came to the attention of authorities in February of 2012. Officers responded to a call and arrested him. During the incident, officers discovered marijuana plants and firearms in his apartment. After being released, Lawrence repeatedly demanded his firearms be returned, but police were holding them as evidence.

Frustrated, Lawrence then placed an ad on Craigslist that offered $1 million to anyone who murdered an officer. Lawrence will spend six years behind bars.

A St. Louis Police Officer has been suspended and faces domestic assault charges for an incident earlier this month.

Officer Matthew Schanz was involved in an incident while off-duty on March 10. In addition to the domestic assault charges, he is also charged with resisting or interfering with an arrest. Schanz has been with the department for three years and was placed on desk duty after the incident. Now that charges are filed, Schanz has been suspended.

Police Chief Sam Dotson says the department is committed to identify officers who undermine the integrity of the department.
