Police aren't releasing many details about a man found shot to death in north St. Louis Sunday afternoon.
Homicide Detectives were called to the 8900 block of Riverview Boulevard after a man was found dead in a car. Police say the man had been shot multiple times, but haven't identified the victim.
The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 866-371-8477.
The drying out process is still underway at a St. Ann apartment building damaged when a kitchen fire Friday morning set off the sprinklers. The building was temporarily condemned after water from the 10th floor fire soaked all of the lower floors.
The American Red Cross continues to assist the 161 displaced residents. More than 100 are calling the Super 8 Motel in St. Ann home for now.
Many Santa Ana residents were disheartened Sunday when they learned it would be at least Tuesday before they can return home to see what the water did to their personal belongings.
ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis jury has awarded $1.14 million to a former employee of the Missouri Department of Public Safety who accused the department of age discrimination.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports the St. Louis Circuit Court jury awarded $1.14 million Thursday to 61-year-old Timothy Barber, a senior agent in the department's Division of Alcohol & Tobacco Control. Barber worked for the department for nearly 30 years before he was let go in 2009.
Barber's lawyers asked the jury to award Barber three years' worth of lost compensation, minus what he gets in retirement money. Barber made about $56,000 a year. The jury awarded him $540,000 in actual damages and $600,000 in punitive damages.
A spokeswoman for the attorney general's office, which represented the state agency, declined comment.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers are seeking to allow new charges on cellphones and wireless devices to help improve the state's 911 system.
Public safety officials say many counties cannot identify the location of someone who uses a cellphone to call 911.
Legislation advancing this year would establish a 3-percent charge on prepaid wireless devices. Proceeds would go for the poison control center and for counties to improve 911.
The proposals also would give counties a new 911 funding option by permitting a monthly fee on devices that can contact 911. The fee would be capped at $1.50 and require voter approval. Counties currently can assess a fee on landline phones or a sales tax. Counties would not be permitted to combine funding options.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri House Republicans were told they could face primary opposition this year if they voted to sustain Governor Jay Nixon's veto of income tax cut legislation.
Fifteen Republicans voted anyway against the override despite the threats, but only four drew primary challengers for this year's election as candidate filing closed this past week.
The Missouri Club for Growth, which promised to recruit primary challengers, said they have spoken to those challengers. But the group declined to say if it would provide financial backing to those campaigns.
The link between the tax vote and Republican primaries isn't clear. A political scientist from Missouri State University said many of the incumbents would have drawn challengers regardless of their vote.
WEST PLAINS, Mo. (AP) — A south-central Missouri woman will be sentenced in May for the death of an infant she admitted dropping because the baby wouldn't stop crying.
KYTV reports 21-year-old Bobbie Derryberry of Mountain View pleaded guilty this week in Howell County Circuit Court to second-degree murder. Other charges were dropped.
Derryberry was accused of killing her 5-month-old daughter, Autumn Nash, in June 2013. Hospital records showed the baby had a fractured skull, broken ribs and extensive bruising.
Investigators said Derryberry told officers she dropped the baby to the floor because she wouldn't stop crying. She also hit the child two or three times on the back, face and nose.
Derryberry had two other children who were placed with a guardian in 2011 after Derryberry was convicted of child endangerment.
