Federal court panel stays Missouri man's execution

Tuesday, 10 December 2013 00:57 Published in Local News

   KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A panel of federal judges has stayed a Missouri man's execution a little more than a day before he was set to die.

   Allen Nicklasson had been scheduled to be put to death at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday for killing businessman Richard Drummond in 1994.

   But late Monday a three-judge panel of the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals voted 2-1 to stay the execution on Nicklasson's claims of ineffective counsel.

   A stay such as this in a death row case is not unusual and does not mean the execution ultimately will be scuttled.

   The state is expected to appeal the decision to the full appeals court.

 

STL County approves preliminary Boeing incentive package

Tuesday, 10 December 2013 00:40 Published in Local News

   When the state of Missouri presents it's economic package to Boeing Tuesday, it'll include an extra tax incentive from St. Louis County.  

   Monday night, the County Council unanimously approved a preliminary package that could be worth as much as $1.8 billion if Boeing agrees to build the 777X commercial airliner near Lambert Airport.  The specific form of the incentives will take has not yet been determined, but could include TIFs, or tax increment financing.

   Both County Executive Charlie Dooley and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay addressed the County Council last night in an effort to win the incentives.  Both made the case that the number of jobs the plant would bring would mean a significant economic boost to the region.  Production of the plane could bring as many as 8,000 new jobs to the St. Louis area.  

   With the county incentives and the tax breaks approved by state lawmakers last week, Missouri's bid to win the plant is worth nearly $3.5 billion over 20 years.   

   More than a dozen communities are vying for the new Boeing plant.  The aerospace company is expected to make a decision in January 2014.

   The crews will head next to the city of Diamond on Tuesday.
