2 charged in connection with infant's body

Saturday, 08 March 2014 09:38 Published in Local News

WARRENSBURG, Mo. (AP) — The discovery of an infant's body in a cave has led to arrests and charges against two residents of Warrensburg in west-central Missouri.

Police and the Johnson County prosecutor announced Friday night that 19-year-old Latasha Wilson is charged with abandoning a corpse, and 20-year-old Zakary Carter is charged with tampering with physical evidence.

Neither had a listed phone number. Missouri's online court records were not updated Friday night to show whether they had lawyers.

Two University of Central Missouri biology students found the decomposing body Tuesday in a cave at Pertle Springs, a university-owned public recreation area in Warrensburg.

Authorities are awaiting autopsy results to determine if more charges will be filed. They would not comment further on the case, including a possible relationship between the suspects and the infant.

Wal-Mart seeks to intervene in electric rate case

Saturday, 08 March 2014 09:33 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Wal-Mart is seeking to intervene in a dispute about electric rates between Ameren Missouri and its largest electric customer.

Noranda Aluminum Holding Corporation has sought about a 25 percent reduction in the rate Ameren charges at its aluminum smelter in the southeastern Missouri town of New Madrid.

Wal-Mart filed a motion Friday with the Missouri Public Service Commission asking to intervene in the case.

In its filing, Wal-Mart says a lower rate for Noranda could significantly affect its own electric bills. Wal-Mart operates 73 stores in Missouri that consume a combined 190 million kilowatts per hour in electricity.

Noranda says Ameren is overearning and that lowering its rate would only increase other customers' bills by 1.8 percent or less. Ameren disagrees and says it will fight the rate reduction.
