Charges are filed against a 20-year-old man for allegedly shooting and killing his teenage sister.

Police say Marcus Anderson accidentally shot his sister, Alicia Anderson in their North St. Louis home Thursday afternoon. It appears that Marcus, who has a mental disability, was playing with a shotgun when he fired the shot. Investigators say the gun did not belong any family members, but was being stored for a family friend.

A judge set Anderson's bond at $20,000.

COLLINSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A self-described conservative and anti-abortion activist says she'll mount a second Democratic challenge to Republican congressman John Shimkus.

Angela Michael tells the Belleville News-Democrat she's challenging the long-time incumbent and hopes to use her candidacy to draw attention to abortion.

She did the same thing in 2012 when Democrats didn't mount an opponent to face Shimkus, who was first elected to congress in 1996. Michael received about 31 percent of the vote in that general election, compared with Shimkus' 69 percent.

Michael and her husband have 13 children and regularly protest outside an area abortion clinic. She says he hopes to use FCC laws about election advertisements to show graphic images of fetuses, the way she did in 2012.

The 15th District includes 33 counties.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Missouri Botanical Garden has completed a 26-year effort to document the state's extensive plant life.

The flora encyclopedia fills almost 1,400 pages and lists nearly 3,000 plants. It's the third volume in a series started 50 years ago by the St. Louis research center.

Each plant species is described in great detail. There are notes on taxonomy, distribution, plant uses and conservation issues. The state Department of Conservation collaborated on the project.
