A man called Outlaw is headed to prison for his role in two violent crimes.

Stanley "Outlaw" Carter was sentenced in federal court to 20 years behind bars. In 2008 Carter was first involved in an armed home invasion and stole a large amount of marijuana. Later in the year he was involved in a shooting that left two men dead.

A judge said both of the crimes were related to a drug trafficking operation and the fruits of a federal investigation.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri lawmaker arrested for possessing marijuana says he is resigning from a Democratic campaign position but not from office.

Rep. Jeremy LaFaver said Monday he is stepping down as chairman of the House Democratic Victory Committee, which raises money for House candidates.

But LaFaver told The Associated Press he is not resigning from the House, because he believes he can still be an effective lawmaker.

The Missouri Republican Party has said LaFaver should resign.

LaFaver was arrested Sunday after a traffic stop in Boone County for possessing a marijuana pipe and up to 1.2 ounces of marijuana. He has apologized for the incident.

LaFaver sponsored an unsuccessful bill this year that would have lowered penalties for possessing small amounts of marijuana.

LEBANON, Mo. (AP) — A jury has recommended the death penalty for a man convicted of killing an elderly couple who interrupted a burglary at their south-central Missouri home in July 2010.

The jury that was brought to Laclede County from Franklin County deliberated about four hours Friday afternoon before reaching its recommendation for 33-year-old Jesse Driskill of Lebanon, Missouri.

The same panel convicted Driskill on Wednesday of first-degree murder in the deaths of 82-year-old Johnnie Wilson and 76-year-old Coleen Wilson at their secluded home near Lebanon. Both were shot, and Coleen Wilson was raped before their killer tried to burn their bodies.

Laclede County Circuit Judge Kenneth Hayden will consider the jury's recommendation when he sentences Driskill on November 5th.

Besides murder, Driskill was also convicted of rape, sodomy, burglary and armed criminal action.

St. Louis County Police have officially charged a South County school teacher with sexual assault.

Forty seven year old James Wilder III was arrested at Sperreng Middle School on Tuesday and charged Wednesday with six counts of second-degree sodomy for crimes that prosecutors say occurred between August 1996 and September 1997.

The alleged victim, who was 16 years old at the time, came forward this summer with the allegations.

Wilder is being held in the St. Louis County jail on a $50,000 cash-only bond.

KIRKSVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A judge says a northeast Missouri man accused of stabbing and dismembering an elderly neighbor is not competent to stand trial.

Adair County Prosecuting Attorney Matt Wilson says a judge found 49-year-old Paul R. Potter of Kirksville incompetent for trial after he underwent a psychiatric evaluation.

Potter faces first-degree murder and other charges in the January death of 74-year-old Willis Edward Meredith. Prosecutors say Potter stabbed Meredith, chopped up his body and started fires to try to conceal the crimes. He is also accused of throwing the victim's arms at witnesses before his arrest.

The Kirksville Daily Express reports that Potter's status will be reviewed in six months.

Online court records indicate Potter was evaluated at Fulton State Hospital. He pleaded not guilty in April.
