Florissant cop shooter found guilty

   The man who shot and paralyzed a Florissant police officer in 2012 could spend decades behind bars.  
   Twenty-two year old Brian Cannon was found guilty Thursday of shooting former police officer Mike Vernon.  The attack left Vernon paralyzed from the waist down and ended his police career.  
   Cannon admitted on the stand he had been running from police and hid in a dumpster.  Vernon and other officers had been searching for him.  When  Vernon walked by the trash bin, Cannon shot him.  
   Vernon spoke with Fox 2 News about the guilty verdict.  "I want him to sit in a cell and always wonder," Vernon said.  "I was never going to open that trash can. I was going to go back in my car and drive away and we probably wouldn't be having this conversation." 
   St. Louis County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch, the son of a police officer killed in the line of duty, personally handled the case.
   Sentencing is set for April 11.

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - A lawyer says a southeast Missouri man will plead guilty to killing his estranged wife, a mother of triplets.

Public defender Christopher Davis told The Associated Press that Clay Waller will confess to killing 39-year-old Jacque Waller at a Thursday hearing. Jacque Waller's body was found on a Mississippi River island May 29.

Davis would not say Wednesday whether Clay Waller led police to his wife's body. She had been missing since June 1, 2011, the same day the couple met with a divorce lawyer. Police said they had been living apart for about three months and had financial problems.

Waller was charged last year with first-degree murder, even though his wife's body had not been found at that time. He pleaded not guilty at the time.

A guilty plea is expected when Clay Waller appears in court this week. Waller is accused of murdering his wife, Jacque Waller. She went missing after telling people she was going to meet with her estranged husband in 2011. Search teams found her body last week across the river from Cape Girardeau. Clay Waller is already in prison for harassing Jacque's sister. If he submits the anticipated plea, the next step would be setting a sentencing date. The couple's triplets are now seven years old and live with Jacque's sister.

CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A 21-year-old St. Louis County woman faces sentencing in July after pleading guilty to child endangerment for placing her newborn baby under a tree in a stranger's yard.

KSDK-TV reports that Kaitlin Norton pleaded guilty in St. Louis Circuit Court. She was arrested last year, days after the child was found outside of a home in Ellisville.

A woman looked out her window and saw a bundle in a blanket, thinking at first it might be a litter of puppies. It was Norton's child. Norton had given birth to the baby in the basement of her boyfriend's home.

Norton turned herself in after she was treated at a hospital following the birth.

A former metro-east police chief will spend 18-months on probation and lose his right to carry a badge after pleading guilty to official misconduct.

Former New Athens Chief Dallas Hill admitted taking an Apple iPod and iPad from the department's evidence locker for personal use.

St. Clair County Prosecutor Brandon Kelly says it's the kind of crime officials hate to see. "You never want to have to do anything like this. You never want to have to prosecute a police officer, because they're part of our team."

Though the 27-year-old Hill won't report to a probation officer, the felony conviction bars him from being a police officer and carrying a gun.
