JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri lawmakers are considering an overhaul of the state's criminal laws this year that would include the creation of new felony and misdemeanor classes.

But within the 1,100-page bill is a more substantive change in the state's drug policy.

The Senate measure, endorsed by a committee this week, would reduce the penalties for first-time marijuana possession offenders. Instead of facing a year in jail and a $1,000 fine, offenders would only be subject to a maximum $500 fine. The bill would also reduce the maximum prison sentence for other drug possession charges.

Similar House legislation, however, would leave the penalties the same as current law. Its sponsor says the criminal code overhaul should be separate from changing Missouri's drug policy.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — A Springfield man has been sentenced to life in prison without parole for killing his roommate so he could steal his heroin.

The Springfield News-Leader reports 40-year-old Jarrod Sirois was found guilty in December of first-degree murder in the beating death of 45-year-old Robert Pugh.

Judge Calvin Holden sentenced Sirois on Friday after denying his motion for a new trial.

Sirois told authorities he killed Pugh so he could steal his drugs, with the intention of overdosing on it, July 6, 2012.

Sirois admitted using a metal pipe to hit Pugh in the head three or four times while Pugh was asleep on the couch.

He told police he was only trying to knock Pugh out.

CHICAGO (AP) - Gov. Pat Quinn won't debate his lone Democratic challenger ahead of next month's primary.
 
Activist Tio Hardiman wrote Quinn a letter requesting debates ahead of March 18, saying the public "deserves a serious debate."
 
Quinn campaign spokeswoman Leslie Wertheimer said Friday she hadn't seen the letter but no debates were to "take place."
 
Hardiman faces an uphill battle. Records for the most recent quarter show Quinn's campaign has $4.5 million in the bank, compared with $550 for Hardiman, who's mostly self-financed.
 
He's been active in anti-violence efforts, but doesn't have statewide name recognition or party backing.
 
Hardiman insists he'll run a credible campaign.
 
The Republican gubernatorial candidates are participating in numerous debates. They are Treasurer Dan Rutherford, businessman Bruce Rauner, and state Sens. Kirk Dillard and Bill Brady.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - New filings in a class action lawsuit challenging Missouri's treatment of convicted sex offenders seek the release from custody of more than 200 men in the program.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the legal challenge to the Missouri Department of Mental Health claims its Sex Offender Rehabilitation and Treatment Services program is mismanaged, overcrowded and essentially a prison disguised as a mental hospital.
 
The program was created to treat sex offenders who complete prison sentences but are deemed unsafe to be released. They are held indefinitely as mental health patients at secure facilities in Farmington and Fulton
 
Since the program was started 14 years ago, no one has successfully completed treatment. The suit was first filed in 2009. Missouri is among 20 states with similar treatment programs.

All lanes of westbound Interstate 64 are open hours after a tractor trailer caught fire.

Just before 6 AM a tandem tractor trailer caught fire on the shoulder of the road. The fire did not spread beyond the trailer, but crews are exercising caution because the second trailer contains hazardous materials. Fox 2 reports the material has the potential to cause an explosion. Drivers were backed up for miles while crews worked to extinguish the fire.

MoDOT is planning to close westbound I-70 between the Poplar Street Bridge and Pine Street from 8 p.m. Saturday until noon on Sunday.  One lane of eastbound I-70 and the Eads Bridge will also be closed for that time and eastbound 70 could close for 15-minutes at a time during the work.  Its all part of the Park Over the Highway project linking the Arch grounds with downtown.

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A short track speed skater from Springfield who raised nearly $50,000 online to cover training costs is one of just two Missourians competing at the Winter Olympics in Russia.
The Columbia Missourian reports that 24-year-old Emily Scott is one of three short track skaters on the U.S. women's team in a sport compared to roller derby on ice. Competitors jockey for position in a tight oval.
More than 700 people contributed to Scott after learning about her financial struggles in 2013, when her national team stipend was slashed.
The other Missourian in Sochi is men's hockey player Paul Stastny of the NHL's Colorado Avalanche. He was born in Canada but grew up in St. Louis, where his father played for the Blues.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - Police are praising three Good Samaritans who stopped a domestic assault along a busy Kansas City highway.
Police and court documents say a man was beating his wife near an exit from Interstate 70 at U.S. 40 when the three people stopped. They say the helpful motorists possibly saved the woman's life.
The Kansas City Star reports the 31-year-old victim suffered a broken nose, broken facial bones, cuts and bruises in the beating Jan. 30.
She told police her husband threatened to kill her and then himself. The man jumped in his car and escaped when the other drivers stopped but he was later arrested.
The suspect, 38-year-old Robert Tyus, was charged Wednesday with first-degree assault and felonious restraint. Court records do not indicate if he has an attorney.
