Judge throws out plea deal for former judge

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - A federal judge says he can't accept a plea deal for a former Illinois judge on heroin and gun charges because the prison term is too light.
 
Michael Cook pleaded guilty in November as part of a deal with prosecutors that called for him to serve 18 months in prison. But on Wednesday, U.S. District Judge Joe Billy McDade rejected the deal, saying Cook deserves more prison time.
 
An attorney for the former St. Clair County judge declined to go through with the sentencing. He has three weeks to work out another deal with prosecutors. Cook also can ask for a jury trial.
 
The case involves the death of Associate Judge Joe Christ, who was with Cook at a hunting cabin when he overdosed on cocaine last year.

ESL again tops unsafe neighborhood list

   A new survey ranking the safety of cities across the country is out, and it's a bit of a mixed bag for the St. Louis area.
   According to crime data website Neighborhood Scout, East St. Louis is the most dangerous city in the nation. East St. Louis beat out places like Flint, Michigan and Camden, New Jersey for the dubious distinction. The website says a resident of East St. Louis has a one-in-twenty chance of becoming a victim of a violent crime--compare that to just 1-in-241 for the rest of Illinois.
   On a brighter note, Ballwin, Missouri was ranked the ninth safest city in America. The average resident there has a 1-in-almost 1700 chance of being the victim of a violent crime. 
   Check the odds in your neighborhood on the Neighborhood Scout website.

Convicted killer of wife, 2 sons appeals

MOUNT VERNON, Ill. (AP) - A man serving life in prison for the 2009 killings of his wife and their two young sons in southwestern Illinois is asking for his convictions to be tossed on claims that decisions by the trial judge prejudiced jurors against him.
 
An attorney for Christopher Coleman argues in a petition with the Mount Vernon-based 5th District Appellate Court that jurors were wrongly allowed to see videos and photographs of Coleman and his lover.
 
Coleman's appeal also argues that prosecutors didn't sufficiently prove their case.
 
Thirty-seven-year-old Coleman was convicted of strangling his wife and sons at the Coleman's Columbia home in 2009.
 
He is serving his life sentences at a prison outside of Illinois.
 
The state appellate prosecutor's office has until March 31 to file a response to the appeal.
