Special prosecutor to look a Maryville sex assault case

Wednesday, 16 October 2013 17:20 Published in Local News

MARYVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri prosecutor who dropped charges in a sex assault case involving a 14-year-old girl says he's asking a court to appoint a special prosecutor to look at the case.

   Nodaway County prosecutor Robert Rice announced the development Wednesday.

   The girl's mother, Melinda Coleman, says her daughter was plied with alcohol and raped by a 17-year-old acquaintance.

   Coleman says the family was forced to move from Maryville because of harassment they faced in the small town. She says that after the alleged attack last January, her daughter was dumped on her family's front porch in freezing cold temperatures.

   Two months after the incident, Rice dropped charges against the 17-year-old boy.

   Rice and the county sheriff have insisted the case collapsed when the Colemans became uncooperative with investigators. Coleman denies that.

LAX officials eye security after dry ice bombs

Wednesday, 16 October 2013 16:52 Published in National News

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Los Angeles International Airport officials plan to meet with law enforcement authorities to examine potential security enhancements after two dry ice bombs exploded in an alleged prank by an employee at the airport.

The meetings also will explore the handling and transport of dry ice and other hazardous materials and possible improvements to those procedures.

Arif Alikhan, deputy executive director for Homeland Security and Law Enforcement at Los Angeles World Airports, said Wednesday that such meetings are routine after such an incident and will look at lessons learned.

Dicarlo Bennett was arrested Tuesday and booked for possession of a destructive device near an aircraft. The 28-year-old is being held on $1 million bail.

Two bombs exploded Sunday night; one was found undetonated Monday.

Police are looking for a man who tried to rob two businesses this week.

The first incident was in High Ridge, Missouri around 11:30 PM, Tuesday. The suspect walked in to a Circle K, pointed a gun at the employee, and demanded money. The employee refused twice and the suspect ran away.

Then, around 2 AM Wednesday, the same suspect tried to rob a Steak n' Shake in Fenton. Again the employees refused to give in to the suspect's demands for money.

The suspect was described in both attempted robberies as a white male. He is 5’6″-5’10″ tall and weighs 130-140 pounds. He wore dark clothing and a bandana to conceal his face. 

Call the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office if you have any information in this case: 636-797-5515.
