The Chicago man convicted of beating a friend to death with a skillet in North St. Louis, will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Andre McAfee was sentenced yesterday for the 2006 attack on Charles Barnes. Investigators determined that McAfee used a skillet to beat Barnes to death. McAfee's first trial ended in a mistrial last year, but he entered a guilty plea to murder charges this year.

Donor is behind effort to ease sex-offender rules

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The owners of a multi-state tobacco store chain have contributed thousands of dollars to Missouri officials and even hired their own lobbyists. But their cause this year is not focused on cigarettes.

Jon Rand and Sharie Keil are backing Missouri legislation that would remove hundreds of people convicted of sex crimes as juveniles from the state's online listing of registered sex offenders. Their cause is intensely personal, because their son is among those whose name, photo and address would come down from law enforcement websites.

Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon vetoed the bill earlier this summer. He said it could endanger the public by hiding the whereabouts of violent sex offenders. But the political battle is not over. Missouri lawmakers are to convene next Wednesday to consider overriding the veto.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The University of Missouri's flagship campus is sweetening the pot for high academic achievers.

The university announced a new $6,500 scholarship Friday as well as increases to two existing grants that reward academic excellence. The Columbia school calls the changes its most significant scholarship increases in two decades.

The new Chancellor's Award will go to Missouri residents who graduate in the top 10 percent of their class from an accredited high school and have a composite ACT score of 31 or higher.

The Curators Award increases by $1,000 to $4,500. And the Mark Twain scholarship for talented out-of-state students will roughly double next year.

The Twain scholarship range was previously $2,000 to $5,500. Starting with the fall 2014 semester, out-of-state students can receive anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000.
