Mo. public defender system cites budget crunch

Monday, 21 October 2013 09:09 Published in Local News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The head of Missouri's public defender system says furloughs may be necessary if Gov. Jay Nixon does not release additional money for the system by January.

   The Jefferson City News Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1h0dUe6 ) that state Public Defender Cat Kelly sent notices last week to judges warning them that the system could face staff shortages. She said a hiring freeze would start Nov. 1 and furloughs could kick in two months later.

   Nixon withheld $1.4 million from the public defender system when then budget year started July 1.

   A spokeswoman for Nixon's Office of Administration says the public defender system and many other agencies had 4 percent of their budgets restricted - slightly more than the standard 3 percent that's kept in reserve.

WASHINGTON PARK, Ill. (AP) - Authorities in the St. Clair County village of Washington Park say they found the remains of a body in a car trunk after firefighters extinguished a fire in the vehicle.


The Belleville News Democrats reports the body was found Saturday night. Washington Park Assistant Police Chief James Mister says the body was so badly burned that's it's not known whether the person was male or female.


He says a neighbor saw the car fire and called 911.


The body was discovered when a firefighter noticed what appeared to be a bone, forced open the trunk and found the charred remains.


Authorities are asking the public to provide information that might lead to the identification of the body.
