CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - A 46-year-old convicted sex offender accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting two southeast Missouri girls has pleaded guilty to federal child pornography charges.

The U.S. Attorney's Office says Jeffrey D. Shelton, of Poplar Bluff, pleaded guilty Wednesday to production, attempted production and possession of child pornography. Sentencing is July 15.

 Prosecutors say Shelton abducted a 5-year-old child in October 2012 and produced videos of the child engaged in sexual conduct at his Butler County home. Authorities also said Shelton's cellphone contained other visual depictions of another 10-year-old child engaged in sexual activity.

Shelton spent more than 20 years in prison for kidnapping and sexually assaulting three children in Texas in the early 1990s.

PLATTE CITY, Mo. (AP) - A judge has refused to order Gov. Jay Nixon to testify in the third murder trial of a northwest Missouri man.

Platte County Circuit Judge Owens Lee Hull Jr. denied the motion by lawyers for Mark Woodworth following a brief hearing Thursday.

Mark Woodworth is facing a retrial for the 1990 killing of Cathy Robertson, a neighbor in Chillicothe.

Woodworth sought to depose Nixon about his knowledge of a series of letters between state and local prosecutors, a Livingston County judge and Robertson's husband.

Nixon was the state's attorney general when Woodworth was indicted by a Livingston County grand jury two decades ago. The case was handled by a special state prosecutor, Kenny Hulshof, after the Livingston County prosecutor refused to press charges.
