Execution set in Kansas City abduction, killing

Saturday, 25 January 2014 12:58 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri Supreme Court has scheduled a February 26th execution for a man who pleaded guilty in the 1989 abduction, rape and stabbing death of a 15-year-old Kansas City girl.

Michael Taylor and Roderick Nunley were charged with kidnapping Ann Harrison as she waited for a school bus near her home. She was raped, stabbed and left bleeding to death in the trunk of a car.

The high court set Taylor's execution date on Friday.

Taylor's lawyer said the scheduling was premature in light of ongoing lawsuits against Missouri's execution procedures. The state switched to a one-drug lethal injection method since drug companies stopped selling the traditional three-drug mixture for use in executions.

Nunley was scheduled to be executed in 2010, but was granted a stay.

St. Louis Police prepare for historic redistricting

Friday, 24 January 2014 16:47 Published in Local News
Monday marks an historic change for St. Louis City.
 
For the first time in over five decades, the police department will implement new police districts. Chief Sam Dotson announced that the city will consolidate the nine current districts to six. Dotson says the move is necessary because the city has changed since the 60's. 50 years ago the city's population was around 750,000 and there were over 2,200 police officers. Today the population sits closer to 318,000 and there are 1,250 officers. The resdistricting will allow Dotson to put more officers on the streets.
 
Dotson says the goal of redistricting is three-fold, "We have to reduce crime, this redistricting is a crime-reducing strategy. We have to help people feel safer. This will help people feel safer because we are putting more officers in neighborhoods that are challenged."
 
"And three, better communication," Dotson said, "we're talking about this. We've tweeted about it, I've blogged about, we've gone to neighborhood meetings--we're trying to be as open and transparent as we can
 
The changes go in to effect Monday morning at 4. Residents are invited to leave feedback at slmpd.org.
