Missouri Tax Cut Proposal Could Hurt Higher Education

Wednesday, 16 April 2014 07:16 Published in Local News
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Officials from Missouri's public universities are raising concerns about reduced revenues for education as state lawmakers consider an income tax cut.
 
A statement signed by the governing board presidents of nine state universities cites concerns that legislation could limit the money available for education.
 
Although the letter does not specifically mention the proposed income tax cut, the executive director of the Council on Public Higher Education said that is the subject of the concerns.
 
The Republican-led House could vote as soon as Wednesday on whether to give final approval to a bill that would eventually cut more than $600 million of income taxes for individuals and businesses.
 
Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon has said the bill could harm education funding. He vetoed a tax cut last year.

South County Man Charged With Rape, Sodomy and Torture

Wednesday, 16 April 2014 07:09 Published in Local News
ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis-area man is accused of sexually torturing five women in his apartment over several years.
 
Authorities on Tuesday announced that 29-year-old Adam Michael Capriglione of south St. Louis County is facing 19 felony charges that include forcible rape, forcible sodomy, felonious restraint and domestic assault.
Capriglione is jailed on $500,000 bond.
 
Police spokesman Brian Schellman says an investigation began after one of the victims contacted police in January. Capriglione is accused of raping, sodomizing and torturing five women dating back to 2006.
Capriglione also faces one count of sexual exploitation of a minor for allegedly filming a child having sex in 2007.
 A phone message left with Capriglione's attorney, Joseph Green, was not immediately returned.
 
The crimes occurred at Capriglione's apartment and allegedly involved five victims. According to court records, most of the victims began as girlfriends. Some lived with Capriglione. One woman was allegedly choked until she fell unconscious. That same victim was allegedly burned with heated scissors, cut, and beaten with a rubber mallet.
 
Police suspect there may be other victims and urge them to come forward.
 
CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - St. Louis County police and the Drug Enforcement Administration are asking residents of the county to turn in unused prescription drugs.
 
The drug take-back initiative is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 26. Police say it is part of an effort to ensure that unused medications don't become available for abuse, and are kept out of the water supply. The DEA will dispose of all drugs collected.
 
Police say the effort is free and anonymous. Four collection sites will be offered at locations in north St. Louis County, Mehlville, Fenton and Wildwood.
