   Missouri wide receiver Dorial Green-Beckham won't face any charges related to a burglary reported at the Brookside Apartments early Sunday morning. That's according to a statement released by Columbia Police Thursday.

   The incident report, released the same day, alleges that Green-Beckham had forced his way into the apartment, injuring a resident by knocking her down some stairs.  Green-Beckham had reportedly been looking for his girlfriend at the time.  

   According to the police report, the two women who had tried to bar his entry have declined to press charges.  The injured woman reportedly told police she was afraid of the community and media backlash if she pressed charges against the star MU player.  

   Tigers coach Gary Pinkel had suspended Green-Beckham indefinitely for an undisclosed violation of team rules.

   FAYETTE, Mo. (AP) - A 21-year-old central Missouri man has been charged with making a terrorist threat by calling 911 and saying a gunman was on a university campus.
   The Columbia Daily Tribune reports Brian Baxter of Fayette was arraigned Wednesday in Howard County on the felony count. Prosecutors say Baxter called 911 on April 3 saying an armed man was walking toward a building on the Central Methodist University campus.
   The campus was put on lockdown at 10:15 p.m. while law enforcement agencies conducted a building-by-building search.
   Police say a cellphone found near campus linked Baxter to the threat after the phone's owner said he gave the phone to Baxter a few days earlier.
   Baxter's attorney told The Associated Press on Thursday the terrorist charge is way overblown.

   A new audit is raising concerns about a Missouri program that provides tax incentives for developers to clean up contaminated old business sites.  

   The state has authorized more than $185 million in Brownfield Remediation Tax Credits for 115 projects between the 2003 and 2013 fiscal years. About 80 percent of those projects were in the St. Louis area.  

   State Auditor Tom Schweich released a report Thursday giving the program a "poor" rating.  The audit cited weaknesses in oversight, saying the Department of Economic Development has failed to hold down costs and has allowed conflicts of interest.  

   In a written response attached to the audit, DED officials say they've worked to keep costs low and in March published newly proposed rules for the program.

   COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A former Missouri basketball player is seeking a protection order against Zach Price, who remains suspended from the team after being arrested twice for allegedly assaulting his roommate and a woman.
   The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that Earnest Ross filed the petition in Boone County Circuit Court on April 2.  Price was arrested twice the next day after reportedly first ramming his car into another vehicle and then in a later encounter with Ross and the woman. Police say he hit his male roommate in the face then pushed the woman to the ground.
   The restraining order request identifies Ross as the roommate and his girlfriend as the other victim. Price sat out last season after transferring from Louisville. No charges have been filed in the case.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis-area's leading hospital for delivering babies will soon offer an option for midwife-led births, part of a growing trend as more women seek natural childbirth.
 
   Mercy Hospital St. Louis said Thursday that patients are being accepted at its Mercy Birthing Center, which opens in September. Mercy says it will give women the option of a birth without medical intervention, overseen by a midwife, but with medical personnel nearby if needed.
 
   The center will feature four birthing suites that resemble a home bedroom, with queen-sized beds, showers and large tubs for labor.
   A report released last month by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said home births have risen to their highest level in about four decades, though they are still only a fraction of all births.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A man convicted of one killing and suspected in two others may never face the death penalty due to sentencing delays caused in part by a prosecutor's stroke and the killer's own failing health.
 
Gregory Bowman is imprisoned in Missouri for strangling a teenager in St. Louis County in 1977. He was also convicted of killing a 14-year-old girl and a 21-year-old woman in Belleville, Ill., in 1978, but the convictions were overturned. He was never retried.
 
The Missouri Supreme Court in 2011 upheld Bowman's Missouri conviction but ordered re-sentencing.
 
The hearing is now delayed until April 2015. Colleen Blake, the clerk for St. Louis County Circuit Judge David Vincent, says the prosecutor handling the case had a stroke in January, and Bowman has a potentially fatal kidney ailment.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Legislation helping southern Illinois school districts fill teaching vacancies with recently retired teachers is advancing in the state Legislature.
The legislation sponsored by state Sen. John Rushville passed the Senate by a 51-0 vote Wednesday.
 
The bill would allow retired teachers, who are still certified, to teach while still maintaining their eligibility for retirement. Retirees would be exempt from making contributions or receiving any new pension benefits.
 
Schools must have advertised the position for three months prior to the beginning of the school term and offer vacancies to teachers' whose positions have been eliminated by the district.
 
The legislation now moves to the House.
