JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Gov. Jay Nixon says the state will help finance the estimated $2 million needed to remove mold and make repairs at the historic Missouri State Penitentiary in Jefferson City.

The prison has become a major attraction since it stopped housing inmates in 2004, but high levels of mold forced officials to close it to the public in October. Officials say it had been on pace for more than 20,000 visitors this year.

Nixon said Wednesday the state and the Jefferson City government will share the costs evenly, with a goal of resuming public tours next spring. Three buildings and the gas chamber will be repaired.

The penitentiary began housing inmates in 1836 and was the oldest continually operating prison west of the Mississippi River when it closed.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - The chairman of a special Missouri House panel is outlining potential Medicaid changes that could expand coverage to lower-income adults while reducing it for children.

Jefferson City Republican Rep. Jay Barnes offered a detailed financial estimate Wednesday showing the potential changes could save about $42 million in revenues by the time the changes are fully implemented in 2021.

That figure assumes Missouri would spend more money to add adults living in poverty to its Medicaid rolls and subsidize private insurance policies through a federal online marketplace for adults earning slightly more than the poverty level.

It assumes savings to the state by eliminating Medicaid coverage for some children and blind adults. Barnes says they could get policies through the federally run health insurance exchange.

Judge orders mistrial in shaken baby death case

Wednesday, 06 November 2013 14:04 Published in Local News

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A woman charged with murder in the death of a toddler in 2011 will not go on trial this week as scheduled after her attorney was injured in an accident.

A mistrial was declared in St. Louis County on Tuesday in the second-degree murder trial of 31-year-old Jennifer M. Winkler, of Eureka. Her attorney, Neil Bruntrager, suffered a concussion during a fall. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Bruntrager was treated and released at a hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

Winkler is charged with second-degree murder and felony child abuse in the shaking death of 13-month-old Lily Annabella Rieger. The girl was injured while Winkler was at her home watching Lily.
