A Maplewood man is headed to prison for offering a reward to anyone who killed Maplewood Police Officers.
William Lawrence first came to the attention of authorities in February of 2012. Officers responded to a call and arrested him. During the incident, officers discovered marijuana plants and firearms in his apartment. After being released, Lawrence repeatedly demanded his firearms be returned, but police were holding them as evidence.
Frustrated, Lawrence then placed an ad on Craigslist that offered $1 million to anyone who murdered an officer. Lawrence will spend six years behind bars.

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (AP) - Police have charged Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez with murder and weapons counts in connection with the slaying of a semi-pro football player whose body was found in an industrial park about a mile from Hernandez's home.
The charge was revealed Wednesday in Attleboro District Court after Hernandez was arrested at his sprawling North Attleborough home. Less than two hours after his arrest, the Patriots cut Hernandez from the team.
The investigation started more than a week ago after semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd was found slain in an industrial park in North Attleborough, on the Rhode Island line not far from where the Patriots play.
Lloyd's family says he and Hernandez were friends and that Lloyd's girlfriend and Hernandez's fiancee are sisters.
The General Motors plant in Wentzville gets an infusion of money from Detroit to help in the building of two midsize pickups.
General Motors will invest $133 million to add a third stamping press to its Wentzville Assembly and Stamping plant. It's where the Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana are built. But it's undergoing construction for production of GM’s next-generation midsize pickups, the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon.
Dave Baldridge with G-M tells me the move has the potential for creating or retaining approximately 55 jobs...
Baldridge says the new press will increase the plant’s capacity in stamping fenders, doors and other key components for the new pickups and full-size vans.
Construction will begin next month and GM expects the press to be operational by early 2015.
Wentzville Assembly employs approximately 2,000 employees across two shifts.
