   The owners of a south city grocery store are asking their customers to help them keep their doors open.  Local Harvest Grocery in Tower Grove South is facing imminent closure if the owners can't raise $120,000 by February 7th.  
   The owners, Patrick Horine and Maddie Earnest, posted an open letter on Facebook Monday asking their loyal customers for help.  The pair operate the grocery store and two cafes and feature locally grown food.  Ibn the letter, they say their failed expansion into Kirkwood was a devastating blow to the company's finances.  
   Earnest tells Fox 2 News they're asking customers to invest in the future of their neighborhoods and locally produced food.  "What we're doing is reaching into the community and asking them if they want to buy a punch card to our cafes or a gift certificate that you agree not to use until 2015," she said.
   Earnest says if they don't reach their goal, customers who buy the gift certificates will be refunded. She says they're also looking into discussions with new equity partners.  
   Give certificates can be purchased at the store, or online at http://igg.me/at/localharvest/x/1107661.

   The fate of Missouri death row inmate Herbert Smulls is in limbo.  The 56 year old is scheduled to die by lethal injection at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday.  

   On Friday, a federal appeals court in St. Louis ruled 7-3 against death row inmates arguing that the state's use of an Oklahoma compounding pharmacy to make the lethal injection drug pentobarbital without disclosing the name of the pharmacy was unconstitutional.  

   Then on Monday, a federal judge in Kansas City denied Smulls request for a 60 day stay of execution so he can continue to appeal Missouri's execution method.  His attorneys claim denying the stay violates his "due process" rights and they've appealed again.  

   Smulls has also asked Governor Jay Nixon for clemancy.  A spokesman says the governor hasn't reached a decision yet.

   Smulls was convicted of killing a Chesterfield jeweler during a 1992 robbery.

   A retired high school teacher and her adult nephew are dead after a fire destroyed their west end home Monday evening.  St. Louis Firefighters arrived around 6 p.m. to find the three-story house in the 5700 block of Bartmer Avenue fully engulfed. They were unable to reach the two people inside the burning building. 

   Relatives have identified the victims as 80 year old Dorothy Jones and her 62 year old nephew Tom McKinney.  Jones taught math and science for many years at McKinley High School.  McKinney ran a lawn service and took care of his aunt.  

   Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the fire, but relatives speculate that it may have involved a space heater.  They say the home had central heat, but Jones had trouble staying warm and was known to use a small heater.

   Fire investigators say they haven't found any working smoke detectors in the home.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Missouri prosecutors are organizing a campaign on behalf of a proposed constitutional amendment they say will help convict people who commit repeated sex offenses against children.
 
Prosecutors announced the formation Monday of the Protect Missouri Children committee to lead the campaign for the November ballot issue.
 
The proposal would allow evidence of past crimes to be used in prosecuting defendants accused of sex offenses against people younger than 18.
 
Platte County Prosecutor Eric Zahnd says Missouri currently has the nation's most restrictive rules on citing evidence of past child sex crimes against people facing new charges.
 
Zahnd is a co-chairman of the new campaign committee. He says the group plans to appeal to voters through mail, radio ads and potentially TV ads.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Attorneys for condemned inmate Herbert Smulls are pressing on with concerns about Missouri's execution drug, even as the state prepares for its third execution since November.
 
Smulls is scheduled to die by injection one minute after midnight Wednesday for killing St. Louis County jeweler Stephen Honickman in 1991. On Sunday, attorneys for Smulls filed a motion with U.S. District Court. It alleges that the state's refusal to name the compounding pharmacy that makes Missouri's execution drug prohibits them from proving that the execution method could cause pain and suffering for the inmate.
 
His attorneys have also asked for clemency from Gov. Jay Nixon.
 
St. Louis County prosecutor Bob McCulloch says Smulls callously planned the killing, and deserves to be executed for the crime.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The former chief of park rangers in St. Louis has been sentenced to three years in prison for an embezzlement scheme that cost the city nearly half a million dollars.
 
Thomas Stritzel was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court. He and deputy parks commissioner Joseph Vacca pleaded guilty in September to mail fraud. The men must pay restitution of $473,000.
 
Vacca also received a three-year sentence in December.
 
Federal prosecutors say the men set up a sham company called Dynamic Management. They submitted false invoices for materials and services supplied to the Parks Division from 2005 through 2012, funneling city funds through Dynamic Management’s bank account.
 
Prosecutors say the men used the funds for personal use.
