Stolen Christmas presents returned to St. Louis family

Tuesday, 24 December 2013 10:56 Published in Local News
A St. Louis County family has its Christmas back, thanks to fast work from the Normandy Police Department.
 
Two suspects broke into the Lilly family home on Dec. 15 and stole the presents from under the Christmas tree. The thieves even unwrapped the presents and left the paper.
 
Police say clues came together fast, including footprints in the snow. Officers saw the same prints outside another home that had been broken into days earlier.   When one of the alleged thieves bragged about it at Sumner High School, word filtered back to police. That 18-year-old suspect was arrested and charged.  
 
Police are still searching for his accomplice.

Troy, MO man sentenced for killing terminally-ill wife

Monday, 23 December 2013 17:13 Published in Local News
TROY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri man has been sentenced to life plus 30 years in prison for killing his terminally ill wife.
 
   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 43-year-old Russell Scott Faria of Lincoln County was sentenced Monday. He was convicted in November of first-degree murder and armed criminal action.
 
   Betsy Faria, was found stabbed to death on Dec. 27, 2011. She was battling liver cancer at the time.
 
   At the sentencing hearing, her sister, Julie Swaney, said Betsy Faria had two life insurance policies, and her husband had been beneficiary on both. Swaney says her sister changed the beneficiary on one before she was killed, and planned to do so on the other.
 
   Russell Faria's attorney, Joel Schwartz, says the case was built on conjecture, and he plans to appeal.
