Charges are filed against 17-year-old Charles Guice in the hit-and-run that killed a 2-year-old boy.

He faces one count of Leaving the Scene of an Accident. On Sunday night, officers found a 17-year-old woman and the 2-year-old boy in road--witnesses said they were hit by a driver in a white SUV. The teen survived the accident, but the toddler died.

Police found the vehicle on Monday and Guice turned himself in when he found out police were looking for him. He told officers he was scared, and that is why he drove away from the accident.

Leaving the Scene of an Accident is a Class D felony, meaning a conviction could carry a sentence of no more than four years in prison. No other charges were announced.

Local leaders have put out the call to those in need and to those who can help.

Cool Down St. Louis and Ameren kicked off their annual summer program to keep St. Louisans safe from the deadly heat, delivering 240 air conditioners today to elderly and disabled residents, and pledging assistance to the elderly and disabled.

St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay says donations are critical to the program's success, "It is important to note that eventually, all the funds will be exhausted this year. And remind you that 100 percent of proceeds, 100 percent of private donations that go to this, go directly to helping someone in need. There are no administrative costs that come out of our donations. 

If you would like to donate a new or slightly used air conditioner, Vatterot Colleges are taking donated units and they will refurbish them if necessary. For more information go to CoolDownStLouis.org.

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) - Southern Illinois University President Glenn Poshard says the school has met a budget milestone.

He told The Southern Illinoisan Editorial Board on Monday that for the first time in several years SIU has been able to enter the next fiscal year with a budget equal to the previous year. University officials had been bracing for another 5 percent cut, but instead were able to convince state lawmakers to reinstate funding at the previous year's level. The school's budget will be $203 million.

Poshard also discussed enrollment. He says it's unrealistic to think the school's declining enrollment will turn around. But Poshard says he sees evidence enrollment is moving in the right direction. He says he has confidence Chancellor Rita Cheng will accomplish the task.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill says she is supporting a super political action committee encouraging Hillary Rodham Clinton to run for president in 2016.

McCaskill is the first sitting member of Congress to endorse the group, called Ready for Hillary.

The organization does not have official ties to the former secretary of state but it's trying to lay the foundation for another Clinton campaign.

McCaskill was an early supporter of Barack Obama when he was running for president in 2008. She says it's important for supporters of Clinton to start early and build a "grassroots army from the ground up" to help the former first lady if she decides to run for president.

McCaskill was re-elected to her second term in the Senate in 2012.
