MARYVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A former attorney for a Missouri boy accused in a sexual assault case involving a drunken 14-year-old girl says charges were dropped after the girl and her family refused to cooperate in the investigation.

The Maryville case is drawing new attention after The Kansas City Star published the results of a lengthy investigation on Sunday into what happened at a January 2012 party.

In a statement, attorney Robert Sundell says the girl and her mother refused to answer questions during a May 2012 deposition and later offered inconsistencies in another deposition.

Sundell said the boy cooperated with investigators and "freely admitted" to the sexual encounter. The attorney said while the boy's behavior might be reprehensible, it was not necessarily criminal.

The mother denies she and her daughter were uncooperative.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Missouri's decision to not use the anesthetic propofol for capital punishment leaves the state with dwindling options as it seeks to execute two convicted murderers.

Gov. Jay Nixon last week halted what was to have been the first U.S. execution to use propofol following threats from the European Union to limit the drug's export. Nixon ordered the state corrections department to come up with a different lethal injection protocol.

Missouri could follow states such as Ohio and Texas that have turned to private compounding pharmacies to prepare new drug formularies. Or it could seek to administer another FDA-approved barbiturate.

Convicted murderer Allen Nicklasson's lawyer has asked the state Supreme Court to not rule on Missouri's request for a new execution date until it selects a new death penalty drug.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Missouri attorney general's office says it has no power to reopen an investigation into allegations that two teenage girls were sexually assaulted by some boys at a party.

The case is drawing renewed attention after The Kansas City Star published the results of a seven-month investigation into the case in Maryville.

Melinda Coleman says justice was denied when Nodaway County authorities dropped charges in 2012 against the boys who her 14-year-old daughter claimed had sexually assaulted her and a 13-year-old friend.

County officials say the case against the boys fell apart because the Colemans would not cooperate. Coleman denies that.

A spokeswoman for Attorney General Chris Koster says Koster's office lacks the authority to review a local prosecutor's decisions in particular cases.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A Missouri appeals court says a legal dispute over St. Louis County's foreclosure mediation ordinance is moot after a recently enacted state law.

St. Louis County's 2012 ordinance required that lenders give residential borrowers a chance to mediate before their homes are foreclosed. Missouri lawmakers this year approved legislation making real estate loans subject only to state and federal laws. It was aimed at overturning local foreclosure mediation ordinances. Gov. Jay Nixon allowed the law to take effect on Aug. 28.

The Missouri Bankers Association and Jonesburg State Bank had challenged the county's ordinance in court. The Missouri Court of Appeals' Eastern District said Tuesday in its ruling the county has conceded it will not enforce the foreclosure mediation ordinance. The appellate court dismissed the case as moot.

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, nearly 150,000 St. Louisans under the age of 17 live in neighborhoods with risk factors that contribute to youth violence. Today community leaders gathered in Forest Park to outline a plan to combat the problem. 

It's called the St. Louis Regional Youth Violence Prevention Task Force and it's designed to help young people stay out of trouble. Among the goals are prevention, intervention, enforcement, and reentry into the community. St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley says education is another key aspect to the program.

"Keeping young people in school, that is paramount, that has to take precedent," Dooley said. "If they stay in school and get educated, they have the opportunity to be productive citizens and get meaningful jobs, and that's the key."

The youth violence task force runs until the summer of 2016. It's being funded by a public/private partnership.
