PERRYVILLE, Mo. (AP) — The former police chief in the southeast Missouri town of Perryville is facing charges of felony theft, forgery and misdemeanor making a false report.

The Southeast Missourian reports that charges were filed Thursday against Keith Tarrillion by the Missouri Attorney General's office, which had been investigating Tarrillion on allegations made by city employees earlier this year.

Tarrillion does not have a listed attorney.

He resigned as chief in March, but remains on the city payroll as part of a resignation agreement.

In the wake of Tarrillion's resignation, Perryville city officials decided to ask voters whether the police chief position should be elected or appointed. A vote on the issue is Tuesday.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder has decided not to run for a southeast Missouri congressional seat next year.

Kinder announced his decision in a written statement Friday, about a month after he publicly said he was considering a congressional bid.

A campaign would have meant a primary challenge against Republican U.S. Representative Jason Smith, who won a special election for the 8th Congressional District in June.

Kinder noted in his statement that campaigns can be physically, mentally and emotionally exhausting. He said, quote: "An all-out run for Congress over the next year just isn't in the cards."

Kinder was elected last year to his third term as lieutenant governor. He said he plans to serve the remainder of the term, which runs until January 2017.

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) — A microburst is being blamed for storm damage in Cape Girardeau.

The storm struck Thursday night, making for a treacherous Halloween, but there were no reports of injuries.

The Southeast Missourian reports that winds of up to 95 miles per hour were reported on the city's south side.

The National Weather Service concluded the storm was the result of a microburst, though officials with the service say a weak tornado struck East Cape Girardeau, Ill. The twister had winds peaking at 80 mph.

Rain was heavy during the storm, and winds knocked over trees and downed power lines in Cape Girardeau. At one point, more than 2,000 customers of the utility Ameren Missouri were without power. Most electricity was restored by Friday afternoon.

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) -- Brian Elliott stopped 31 shots for his first win of the season, and Alexander Steen scored for the sixth straight game as the St. Louis Blues beat the Florida Panthers 4-0 on Friday night.

Alex Pietrangelo, Chris Stewart and Derek Roy added goals, and Steen posted his NHL-leading 12th this season. David Backes had two assists for St. Louis, which won its third straight.

Elliott hadn't earned a win since April 27 against Chicago. His previous shutout was April 11 at Minnesota.

Jacob Markstrom made 19 saves for Florida, which lost for the fifth time in six games.

Already ahead 1-0, the Blues broke the game open with three goals in just over five minutes in the second period.

St. Louis doubled its lead on Stewart's goal. Barret Jackman passed from the point to Stewart below the left circle for an angled shot from the side that got past Markstrom at 5:21.

The Blues stretched their lead to 3-0 with a power-play goal by Pietrangelo at 7:06. A drive by Backes was blocked by Markstrom, but Pietrangelo tipped in the rebound.

Steen finished the scoring when he wristed in a rebound at 10:42.

Roy put the Blues ahead in the first period with a backhander from the slot that hit the right post, bounced out, hit Markstrom's pads and drifted back across the goal line with 4:19 left in the first.

 

NOTES: Blues C Maxim Lapierre returned after serving a five-game suspension for a hit on San Jose's Dan Boyle on Oct. 15. ... The Blues played an NHL-low 10 games in October but will play 15 in November. ... The Panthers have lost four straight to the Blues, including a 7-0 rout on Oct. 5. ... Florida went 1-3-2 on a season-high, six game homestand.
