Death row inmate asks for stay of execution

Wednesday, 09 October 2013 16:24 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - An attorney for condemned killer Allen Nicklasson is asking the Missouri Supreme Court for a stay of execution, citing concerns about Missouri's planned use of the anesthetic propofol for the first time as a lethal injection drug.

Attorney Jennifer Herndon filed the motion on Wednesday. It wasn't clear when the court would issue a ruling.

The Missouri Department of Corrections has expressed confidence in propofol as an execution drug, but Herndon raised concerns that it could cause Nicklasson to suffer.

Nicklasson was convicted of the 1994 killing of Excelsior Springs businessman Richard Drummond, who stopped to help when a car used by Nicklasson and two others broke down on Interstate 70. Another man in the car, Dennis Skillicorn, was executed in 2009.

Youth soccer referee accused of videotaping boy undressing

Wednesday, 09 October 2013 14:58 Published in Local News

The discovery of a video camera in a storage unit has led to an investigation by  police in St. Peters.

Kyle Pressy, a youth soccer referee, is accused of taping a teenager changing clothes through peepholes drilled into the restrooms at Woodland Park in St. Peters.

 Police say they found the holes in the bathrooms at the main concession stand.  Prosecutors tell KMOV they are still investigating, and that the evidence fits the crime of misdemeanor invasion of privacy.  An employee of the St. Charles County Soccer Association found the video camera on Saturday and turned it over to police. On the video was a 16-year-old boy undressing in the bathroom. Prosecutors say Pressy shot the video and then turned the camera on himself, showing his own face.

The investigation continues with searches of Pressy’s home and computers planned. 

Gateway Arch on list of Most Endangered Monuments

Wednesday, 09 October 2013 14:50 Published in Local News

The Gateway Arch has landed on a list of Most Endangered Monuments.

The Arch is one of five American monuments on the list complied by the World Monuments Fund, an organization dedicated to saving historic landmarks. According to a spokesman for the group, the Arch is at risk because of corrosion, current economic trends, and decreased government funding for national monuments.

The World Monuments Fund was established in 1965. 85 percent of money donated to the fund goes directly to preservation projects.
