A Missouri teenager who had described the slaying of a young neighbor girl as an "ahmazing" thrill made an emotional apology Wednesday to the girl's family and was sentenced to a potential lifetime in prison.
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — A central Missouri teenager who confessed to strangling, cutting and stabbing a 9-year-old girl because she wanted to know how it felt to kill someone was sentenced Wednesday to life in prison with the possibility of parole.
Debate began Monday in the Missouri House on legislation to require voters to show photo identification at the polls. As Marshall Griffin tells us from Jefferson City, the back-and-forth got pretty heated at times.
Jefferson City can sometimes be thought as the smaller town next to Columbia, but it has it's own rich history even beyond being the state capital. Nobody knows the history, and tells its stories better than Bob Priddy, whose "Across Our Wide Missouri" series of books are full of the narrative of our state's past.
