Emergency personnel evacuated a pilot from a Jerseyville corn field after his plane crashed.

Jersey County Sheriff Department says the man took off in the single-seat experimental plane around 10:30 this morning from the Jerseyville Municipal Airport. Shortly after takeoff the pilot says the plane's engine had problems and before he could return to the airport, the engine died. The plane crashed into a nearby cornfield.

The pilot was hurt in the accident, but authorities say the injuries are not serious.

Family of slain 9-year-old targeting in shooting

Thursday, 25 July 2013 11:41 Published in Local News

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Just two weeks after 9-year-old Tyrese Short was shot to death in St. Louis, his family has apparently been targeted again.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that two people were shot Tuesday night in a spray of gunfire at the family's home. One of the two remains hospitalized. Family members say they have no enemies and don't know why they are being targeted.

Tyrese was riding in his father's sport utility vehicle on July 10 when someone shot into the rear window. Tyrese was struck in the back of the head and killed. His father and two of his father's cousins also in the SUV were not hurt.

The former Kinloch Fire Chief Darran Kelley, pleaded guilty to several charges in Federal Court on Wednesday. 

Kelley was facing five felony charges, including three counts of fraud, connected to a series of thefts that occurred over a six year period. Starting in 2007, he skimmed money from the fire district to cover gambling debts and credit car payments. Kelley also illegally took social security payments.

For each count of fraud, Kelley faces 20 years in prison and a quarter-million dollar fine. He heads to sentencing in October and if given the maximum sentence, would spend 75 years behind bars.
