Police have identified the elderly woman who died after being hit by another driver who was fleeing police.

The incident began when officers saw two suspects driving a stolen vehicle in South St. Louis near Grand and Osage. During the traffic stop, the suspect--an 18 year-old man--threw his car into reverse and almost hit the police officer. He then sped off, but hit a car with three passengers, including 87-year-old Virginia Bedrosian. Bedrosian was taken to the hospital where she died later Tuesday night.

The suspect was caught after a short foot chase and his passenger was taken into custody as well.

SALINA, Kan. (AP) - A member of a north central Kansas county commission says he won't resign after being criticized for using a racial slur during a public meeting.

Saline County Commissioner Jim Gile used the slur last week while the commission was discussing hiring an architect for a county project.

The Salina Journal reports that when Gile was asked what he meant, he responded "Afro-Americanized."

On Tuesday, two Salina residents attended the commission's meeting to ask Gile to resign.

Gile read a statement apologizing for using the phrase, saying he recognized he was wrong. Gile said after the meeting he would not resign.

Commission Chairman Randy Duncan said he accepted Gile's apology.

Gile was elected in November to his first four-year term on the commission.

 JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Republican state senator plans to hold hearings across Missouri to get public reaction to a new driver's license process that stores electronic copies of applicants' birth certificates and concealed gun permits in a state database.

Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Kurt Schaefer claims the procedures by the Department of Revenue are an invasion of privacy. During a hearing Wednesday, Schaefer aggressively quizzed department officials about whether they are trying to comply with the 2005 Real ID Act, which sets stringent proof-of-identity requirements.

Department officials insisted they are not. They noted that a 2009 state law prohibits compliance with Real ID.

Schaefer wants to hold public hearings across the state on the procedure. He says he won't give the driver's license administration any money until it can prove it's worthy.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri House Budget Committee has advanced legislation to abolish a tax credit of up to $750 a year for low-income seniors and disabled people who live in rental housing.

More than 104,000 renters were awarded the credit last year. The proposal would redirect $57 million saved by trimming the tax credit to state health, mental health and social services that may benefit seniors and the disabled.

The budget panel accepted public testimony and approved the legislation Tuesday. Generally, House Republicans were supportive and Democrats were critical.

The measure was factored into the proposed budget approved by the House, and it has been backed by Gov. Jay Nixon.

The Senate passed the bill last month.

The trial continues tomorrow in the case of Trooper the pit bull who was dragged behind a truck for miles along Interstate 55. Investigators say 41-year-old Benetta Johnson allowed the pit bull to be tied to a trailer hitch before the dragging took place in November. Johnson told police that she was attempting to return the dog to her ex-husband, and that her 13-year-old son was supposed to place the dog in the bed of her ex-husband's truck. But instead, the ex unknowingly dragged the pup for several miles. Johnson is expected to testify in her own defense on Thursday. Meanwhile Trooper, who was re-named by the Humane Society, is making a remarkable recovery.
