COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - The state's largest bricks-and-mortar college is making it easier for students to earn degrees without leaving home.

The University of Missouri's flagship campus in Columbia on Friday announced a $2.5 million expansion of its online degree programs. The new initiatives include an online master's degree in public health, a bachelor's degree in educational studies and an online master's in public affairs.

Provost Brian Foster says the school is modifying its online admissions requirements to no longer require degree-seeking students to first obtain 60 hours of transfer credits or an associate's degree.

The move comes shortly after Gov. Jay Nixon unveiled plans to team up with the nonprofit Western Governors University to broaden Missouri residents' access to online higher education.

ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - The eastern Missouri burglar busted by the peculiar hitch in his get-along has been sentenced to probation.

Wentzville police arrested 21-year-old David Moore in November for smashing through a glass door at Nu Way Concrete Forms and taking nearly $1,500 in cash.

Surveillance video showed the burglar pointing his toes outward as he walked. Surveillance tape shot four days earlier during business hours showed a man with the same walk. Employees had been suspicious of that man because he wore a heavy coat and gloves on a warm day. They wrote down his license plate number.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Moore pleaded guilty to burglary and theft Monday. In addition to probation he must serve 60 days of shock time and pay back the stolen money.

BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A Roman Catholic priest whose decades-old molestation of a former altar boy led to a $6.3 million payout in an Illinois lawsuit has been kicked out of the priesthood by Pope Benedict XVI.

Diocese of Belleville Bishop Edward Braxton announced the move involving 78-year-old Raymond Kownacki in a statement published in a recent edition of the diocesan newspaper, The Messenger. Braxton says the papal decree calls the defrocking "for the good of the church."

Kownacki is living in a St. Louis-area nursing home and has refused media requests for interviews. He has not been charged criminally.

Kownacki's misdeeds resulted in a $5 million jury award against the diocese to James Wisniewski in 2008. That payout grew to $6.3 million to reflect interest that accrued while the diocese appealed.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A suspect is dead after being shot and killed by police in St. Louis.

The shooting happened Thursday night near the Mississippi River. The suspect is identified as 32-year-old Jason Noroian of Des Peres.

Police say Port Authority officials reported two suspicious vehicles. After they were stopped, officers learned that an occupant of one of the vehicles had a warrant out for his arrest.

As the officer approached to arrest the man, he allegedly reached for the officer's gun and got it out of the holster. The men struggled and the officer tried to shoot, but the gun misfired.

When the man reached again for the gun, the officer fired again, hitting the man in the side. He died at a hospital.

An internal investigation is under way.

NEW YORK (AP) - Andy Williams' song repertoire was all American - but his art collection was eclectic.

Christie's will be auctioning his wide-ranging selection of artworks May 15-16. It's expected to realize $30 million.

The late singer's taste ranged from contemporary, impressionist and modern to Latin American and 20th century decorative art and design.

He collected over a 60-year period. He displayed the works at his California and Missouri homes, as well as his Moon River Theater in Branson, Mo.

Among the highlights are several Willem de Koonings and pieces by Richard Diebenkorn (DEE'-bihn-kohrn), Jean-Michel Basquiat (zhahn mee-SHEHL' BAH'-skee-aht) and Pablo Picasso.

He died last year at age 84. The baritone was known for his wholesome, middle-America appeal and easy-listening hits including the theme to the Oscar-winning tearjerker "Love Story."

The St. Louis Business Journal reports the Legends Country Club in Eureka is closing. Options to sell the Eureka club for $1.7 million or go semi-private already had been exhausted.

The paper spoke with Legends owner, Patricia Natoli, who inherited the club from her late father, Carmelo. She tells the Business Journal the family had already eliminated initiation fees, slashed dues and offered a summer special last year to drum up seasonal membership at the club which apparently consistently operated at a loss.

Although the housing market may be picking up, assessed home values in St. Louis are expected to decline for the third time in a row.

St. Louis County's first elected assessor, Jake Zimmerman says preliminary computer models show values dipping slightly. Zimmerman told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that human assessors may tweak the figures after examining individual homes.

He says anyone whose assessed property value increases will be notified by mail right away so that there's plenty of time for an appeal before the bills go out in the fall.
