The Chess Club and Scholastic Center of Saint Louis in the city's Central West End will host the 2014 U.S. Championship in May. The U.S. Women's Championship will happen simultaneously, and the top juniors' tournament comes to town in June.
 
It's the sixth straight year St. Louis has hosted the national events and the fifth year in a row for the under-20 event.

EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A southwestern Illinois woman who was charged in 2011 with providing heroin that killed her boyfriend and another man has been acquitted of charges she injected a woman with a nonfatal overdose of the drug.
 
Madison County jurors on Wednesday found 30-year-old Angella Halliday not guilty of an aggravated battery count linked to the overdose last July of a Wood River woman who was revived by paramedics.
 
Halliday was charged in 2011 with two counts of drug-induced homicide for allegedly providing the heroin that killed a Worden man and her boyfriend weeks apart.
 
Prosecutors dropped the homicide charges in 2012 after Halliday pleaded guilty to delivery of a prescription anti-anxiety medication near a school. She was sentenced to four years in prison but was paroled last May.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri House committee is considering legislation that would outlaw a phenomenon known as "revenge pornography."
 
"Revenge porn" is posting online sexually explicit photos or videos of ex-romantic partners as a way of humiliating them.
 
Sponsoring Rep. Kevin Engler told the House public safety committee Thursday that revenge porn can have a devastating effect on a person's life. The Farmington Republican's legislation would prohibit someone from observing and then disclosing images of intimate sexual acts without the other person's consent.
 
Disclosing the explicit images would be considered a felony and is punishable by up to four years in prison.
 
The panel did not vote on Engler's bill. Other states, including Pennsylvania and Virginia, are considering similar measures.
