WASHINGTON (AP) — Last summer when dozens of nuclear missile officers were allegedly cheating on proficiency exams, test scores were among the lowest of the year, according to Air Force records obtained by The Associated Press.

That is the opposite of what might be expected if answers were being shared as widely as officials allege.

No explanation is obvious, and the Air Force is not saying why test results were not better if, as alleged, at least 40 officers were cheating.

The case is still under official investigation.

The AP reviewed all test scores for 2013 for the unit in question — the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana. It found relatively weak scores during August and September, the period of alleged cheating.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — A man considered a bully by some of his St. Louis neighbors has been sentenced to one year of probation for harassment.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 44-year-old Dan Scott was sentenced Friday on a misdemeanor count. Judge Michael Noble also ordered Scott to perform 40 hours of community service and undergo anger-management training.

Prosecutors and other critics, including a veteran alderman, called Scott a volatile bully who uses fear and intimidation in the Forest Park Southeast neighborhood. Concerns were so great that a judge barred Scott from his neighborhood for nearly two years.

But supporters say Scott's youth boxing gym and chess club helped troubled youths. Scott, testifying at his trial, said the charges were part of an effort to force him out of the neighborhood.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — Police say they have found child pornography at the southwest Missouri home of a middle-school football coach accused in the kidnapping and killing of a 10-year-old girl.

Search warrants released Friday by Springfield police say they found a three-ring binder containing pornographic photos of young children at the home of 45-year-old Craig Michael Wood.

Officers also seized computers, cameras, 15 guns, 30 video recordings and a hat believed to have been worn by fourth-grader Hailey Owens.

Wood is accused of snatching the child as she walked home from her best friend's house this week. Neighbors said they watched in horror and unsuccessfully gave chase as Hailey was pulled into a pickup truck that quickly sped away.

At his brief Friday morning arraignment, public defender Chris Hatley said Wood plans to contest the charges of first-degree murder, kidnapping and armed criminal action in the fourth-grader's death.

Wood appeared via video from the Greene County Jail, where he is being held without bond.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Ameren Missouri says it has restored power to nearly all of the roughly 67,000 customers who lost electricity during strong storms and high winds.

The unsettled weather on Thursday brought wind gusts of over 60 miles per hour. Most of the outages to Ameren customers occurred in the St. Louis area.

The St. Louis-based utility said about 1,500 customers were still without electricity late Friday afternoon. Crews expected to have all power restored by late last night.

Ameren brought workers from other parts of Missouri to the St. Louis area to help with the recovery.
