Mascoutah man charged for stabbing man to death

Wednesday, 04 December 2013 13:53 Published in Local News

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A 23-year-old southwestern Illinois man is jailed on $2 million bond after being accused of fatally stabbing a man who police say spent the past several years trying to help the troubled defendant.

Prosecutors in St. Clair County on Wednesday charged Joshua Rogers with first-degree murder in the death of Richard Feldt of Mascoutah.

Police asked by Feldt's relatives to check on his well-being found Feldt's body Monday night on his living room floor, with Rogers relaxing on a nearby couch.

Mascoutah Police Chief Bruce Fleshren says Feldt had not been seen since Thanksgiving Day and when found had been dead at least a day.

Online court records don't show whether Rogers has an attorney. He does not have a listed home telephone number.

 

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The University of Missouri has a new chancellor for its flagship campus in Columbia.

 

University system President Tim Wolfe plans to announce the new hire at a Thursday morning news conference. The campus leader will replace Brady Deaton, who retired in November after nine years as chancellor.

 

The university hired an executive search firm to help recruit candidates for the confidential search. An 18-member advisory committee representing faculty, staff, alumni and students interviewed an unspecified number of finalists.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House interim education committee is recommending changes to student transfers, more funding for early childhood education and increased learning time for students.

The panel held 11 public meetings throughout the state this fall and released its report Tuesday to the House speaker.

One of its major topics was Missouri's law allowing students in unaccredited districts to transfer to neighboring districts.

The committee recommended setting a fixed rate of tuition that schools receiving transfer students could charge. It also suggested prescribing the scope of receiving districts' control over the numbers and conditions of transfers they accept.

The panel also recommended that the Legislature look at providing more money for early childhood education, and longer school days for students, especially those who struggle academically or attend troubled districts.
