A St. Louis County family has its Christmas back, thanks to fast work from the Normandy Police Department.
 
Two suspects broke into the Lilly family home on Dec. 15 and stole the presents from under the Christmas tree. The thieves even unwrapped the presents and left the paper.
 
Police say clues came together fast, including footprints in the snow. Officers saw the same prints outside another home that had been broken into days earlier.   When one of the alleged thieves bragged about it at Sumner High School, word filtered back to police. That 18-year-old suspect was arrested and charged.  
 
Police are still searching for his accomplice.

TROY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri man has been sentenced to life plus 30 years in prison for killing his terminally ill wife.
 
   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 43-year-old Russell Scott Faria of Lincoln County was sentenced Monday. He was convicted in November of first-degree murder and armed criminal action.
 
   Betsy Faria, was found stabbed to death on Dec. 27, 2011. She was battling liver cancer at the time.
 
   At the sentencing hearing, her sister, Julie Swaney, said Betsy Faria had two life insurance policies, and her husband had been beneficiary on both. Swaney says her sister changed the beneficiary on one before she was killed, and planned to do so on the other.
 
   Russell Faria's attorney, Joel Schwartz, says the case was built on conjecture, and he plans to appeal.

CHICAGO (AP) - A crush of health insurance shoppers in Illinois have been calling a telephone help line set up to answer their questions, as an important deadline looms for the nation's health law.
 
   More than 1,600 people called the Get Covered Illinois Help Desk over the weekend. That's more than double the call volume from the previous weekend. The state's health insurance website saw more than 26,000 visitors over the weekend, an increase of 4,000 visitors from the weekend before.
 
   Monday had been the deadline to sign up for consumers who wanted coverage upon the start of the new year.
 
   But the Obama administration effectively extended that deadline for signing up for insurance by a day, giving people in 36 states, including Illinois, more time to select a plan.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri panel's delay in approving millions of dollars in low-income housing tax credits has prompted bipartisan criticism.
 
The Missouri Housing Development Commission decided earlier this month to delay about $14 million annually in credits for developers to build apartments for low-income residents. The decision came shortly after Missouri lawmakers approved legislation authorizing up to $1.7 billion in tax incentives over two decades for Boeing Co. to build a plant in the St. Louis area.
 
The tax credits were linked informally to the Boeing incentives as part of negotiations between Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon and several Republican senators.
 
Republican Lt. Gov. Peter Kinder and Democratic Sen. Jamilah Nasheed said Monday there is no reason for the incentives to be linked.
 
A Nixon spokesman declined to comment.
