EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) — An East St. Louis man is jailed on $1 million bond after being accused in a shooting death last month.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that St. Clair County prosecutors charged 20-year-old Montrell Spencer this week with first-degree murder.

Authorities say 49-year-old Leon Lucas Junior of East St. Louis was killed February 22nd during an altercation.

Spencer was arrested Monday by officers who responded to a home in connection with a reported domestic dispute. Police say that after being arrested on suspicion of domestic battery, investigators learned he was suspected in Lucas' death.

Online court records don't show whether he has an attorney. He has an unlisted home telephone number.

Bill seeks lower bar for Sunshine Law enforcement

Sunday, 16 March 2014 09:11 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Running afoul of Missouri's open government laws could carry a smaller financial penalty but no longer require proof the law was knowingly broken under legislation before a Senate committee.

Officials or agencies now can pay up to $5,000 for a purposeful violation and up to $1,000 for a "knowing" violation. The Senate legislation would reduce the amount of the lesser penalty to $100 and no longer require a violation be committed "knowingly" for there to be punishment.

Supporters say the changes would make enforcement of the Sunshine Law just like that of other statutes.

Organizations representing cities, counties and other local governments are critical. They question levying penalties against people who can be volunteers and who accidently violate an open meeting or public records requirement while serving their communities.

Many teachers, students skipping snow day makeups

Sunday, 16 March 2014 09:09 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) — It's payback time for all of those snow days this winter — but not for everyone.

Spring break was scheduled about this time of year for many school districts, but the brutal winter forced so many snow days that some schools are remaining in session to make up the days.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that not everyone is in attendance. Some teachers who made spring break reservations for trips are sticking with their plans. That has led to a high number of requests for substitute teachers, leaving some districts to scramble for replacements.

The scenario could crop up again at the end of the school year as schools make up for snow days.
