TROY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri man has been sentenced to life plus 30 years in prison for killing his terminally ill wife.
 
   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 43-year-old Russell Scott Faria of Lincoln County was sentenced Monday. He was convicted in November of first-degree murder and armed criminal action.
 
   Betsy Faria, was found stabbed to death on Dec. 27, 2011. She was battling liver cancer at the time.
 
   At the sentencing hearing, her sister, Julie Swaney, said Betsy Faria had two life insurance policies, and her husband had been beneficiary on both. Swaney says her sister changed the beneficiary on one before she was killed, and planned to do so on the other.
 
   Russell Faria's attorney, Joel Schwartz, says the case was built on conjecture, and he plans to appeal.

Three teens held in connection to carjacking

Two 15-year-olds and 13-year-old are in custody connected to a carjacking Tuesday night.

 

The incident happened outside of a Dollar General store in Fairview Heights. A mother and her 7-year-old son say the suspects pulled a gun on them, demanded money, and sped off in her car. An officer in the area tried to stop the car, but the suspects did not stop. The driver lost control of the car and it slid off the road. After a brief manhunt, police captured the teens.

 

Police say all three teens had “airsoft guns,” which look like real guns. All three teens are being held in St. Clair County. One suspect was already on home confinement for a previous crime.

VERSAILLES, Mo. (AP) — One of three suspects in the February killings of a central Missouri couple has pleaded guilty to two counts of second-degree murder.

The Lake Sun Leader reports that 43-year-old Derrell Spellmeyer, of Eldon, also pleaded guilty Thursday to armed criminal action. Sentencing is scheduled Jan. 16 in Morgan County Circuit Court.
