ST. LOUIS (AP) - Investigative documents claim a former suspect in the 1990 shooting death of a Chillicothe farm wife told a California man with whom he was embroiled in a business dispute that "he got away with murder and was not scared to do it again."

Newly released investigative records show Brandon Hagan conveyed that threat in a verbal conversation with businessman Sam Gabrielle. Hagan was initially suspected in the Chillicothe killing but insisted he was elsewhere at the time.

Phone messages left with Hagan by The Associated Press Tuesday were not immediately returned.

The records stem from an investigation by Livingston County Sheriff Steve Cox, who reopened the case after an Associated Press investigation raised questions about the conviction of Mark Woodworth, the victim's neighbor.

PLATTE CITY, Mo. (AP) - A judge has refused to order Gov. Jay Nixon to testify in the third murder trial of a northwest Missouri man.

Platte County Circuit Judge Owens Lee Hull Jr. denied the motion by lawyers for Mark Woodworth following a brief hearing Thursday.

Mark Woodworth is facing a retrial for the 1990 killing of Cathy Robertson, a neighbor in Chillicothe.

Woodworth sought to depose Nixon about his knowledge of a series of letters between state and local prosecutors, a Livingston County judge and Robertson's husband.

Nixon was the state's attorney general when Woodworth was indicted by a Livingston County grand jury two decades ago. The case was handled by a special state prosecutor, Kenny Hulshof, after the Livingston County prosecutor refused to press charges.
