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.
 

Get Covered Illinois flooded with calls

Monday, 23 December 2013 17:07 Published in Local News
CHICAGO (AP) - A crush of health insurance shoppers in Illinois have been calling a telephone help line set up to answer their questions, as an important deadline looms for the nation's health law.
 
   More than 1,600 people called the Get Covered Illinois Help Desk over the weekend. That's more than double the call volume from the previous weekend. The state's health insurance website saw more than 26,000 visitors over the weekend, an increase of 4,000 visitors from the weekend before.
 
   Monday had been the deadline to sign up for consumers who wanted coverage upon the start of the new year.
 
   But the Obama administration effectively extended that deadline for signing up for insurance by a day, giving people in 36 states, including Illinois, more time to select a plan.
