A north county man is facing 10 charges for allegedly sexually abusing a young girl.
Prosecutors say that over a two-year period starting in July of 2011, Derrick Lowery molested a 12-year-old girl. Lowery faces sodomy and child molestation charges. The St. Louis County Police Department fears there may be additional victims and are asking any to come forward.
Information can be called in to the police or CrimeStoppers at 866.371.TIPS (8477).
A St. Louis man is headed to prison for the rest of his life for murdering a newspaper manager.
Rico Paul was given the sentence for shooting and killing Paul Reiter, the manager of the St. Louis American. Reiter was shot as he was calling 911 to report a burglary that Paul was committing.
A jury found Paul guilty in his second trial--the first ended in a mistrial when jurors were unable to reach a verdict.
