JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - An attorney for a Missouri death row inmate is asking the state Supreme Court to overturn his conviction because prosecutors failed to disclose evidence that he was beaten by police before confessing.
   The attorney for Reginald Clemons on Tuesday urged the high court to use the findings of a specially appointed judge to set aside Clemons' conviction for the 1991 deaths of sisters Julie and Robin Kerry.  Prosecutors say the sisters were shoved off the Chain of Rocks Bridge into the Mississippi River in St. Louis after being raped.
   Clemons was one of four people who were convicted or pleaded guilty in the case.
 
   Special Judge Michael Manners concluded last year that prosecutors suppressed evidence that police may have beaten Clemons while questioning him.

Kirkwood woman convicted of tax fraud

   ST. LOUIS (AP) - A St. Louis County woman has been found guilty of federal charges for illegally claiming more than $3 million in tax refunds.

   A federal jury convicted 69 year old Nancy Cicero of Kirkwood Wednesday on four counts of filing false claims with the IRS. A sentencing date was not set.

   Federal prosecutors say Cicero claimed false refunds for the years 2005 through 2008 on taxes she claimed to have paid on bond income, and falsified documents as part of the scheme.

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Cicero is an adherent of a theory claiming that those with knowledge of proper procedures can obtain hundreds of millions of dollars in their name being held in trust by the government. An IRS investigator called the argument "frivolous."
