UPDATE: Horse slaughter on hold again at Missouri plant

Monday, 04 November 2013 15:30 Published in Local News

   A federal appeals court has temporarily halted plans to resume domestic horse slaughter.  The 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver Monday issued a temporary injunction barring the Department of Agriculture from inspecting the plants.  

   Slaughterhouses in Missouri and New Mexico had hoped to start up as soon as this week after a federal judge in Albuquerque on Friday threw out a lawsuit by The Humane Society of the United States and other animal protection groups.  

   The groups filed an immediate appeal and won the emergency injunction.

   The order continues the on-again, off-again plans to resume domestic horse slaughter six years after  Congress cut funding for inspectors, forcing the last big slaughterhouses to close.

Man sentenced for 1999 murder

Monday, 04 November 2013 15:29 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS -- AP -- A St. Louis man has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for a murder that happened more than 14 years ago.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 38-year-old Willie McNeil was sentenced Monday after a plea agreement with prosecutors.

The crime happened May 24, 1999, when 47-year-old Mark Raiffie was beaten and shot at the family business he ran, Raiffie Vending Co. 

The case went cold until a tipster called police with information and McNeil was charged with first-degree murder in 2011. As part of the plea deal, the charge was reduced to second-degree murder.
