Former Mo. State Rep. Ron Casey dies

   Funeral arrangements are set for a former Missouri state representative from Crystal City who died over the weekend.  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Ron Casey died early Sunday morning at the age of 61.

   Casey had suffered a head wound the week before when he fell on a concrete floor at his brother's home.

   Casey represented part of Jefferson County for 12 years in the state House.  

   Visitation will be held at the Second Baptist Church in Festus on Tuesday from 2-to-8 p.m.  Funeral services will also be at the church at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

A Missouri State Representative is facing felony charges for misuse of campaign money.

Prosecutors say Representative Steve Webb of Florissant stole campaign funds and spent them on himself. The Post-Dispatch reports that Webb took a campaign contribution, deposited it in a political account, then moved the money to a personal account. Webb is the minority deputy whip. The paper also reports that Webb has taken nearly $29,000 in gifts from lobbyists--there is no limit on the amount of gifts he can take. About $18,000 of that amount has come from utility companies. Webb serves on the House Utilities Committee.

Webb's lawyer says he will surrender himself to authorities when an arrest warrant is issued.
