Mother pleads guilty to killing son

  CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) - A St. Louis County woman has pleaded guilty to killing her 13-month-old son after initially reporting the child as missing.
Tyler Dasher's body was discovered in November 2011 by two dog walkers at the edge of a wooded cemetery near the River Des Peres.
His mother Shelby Dasher had reported the child missing from their Affton home several hours earlier.
 
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the 23-year-old woman pleaded guilty Wednesday in St. Louis County Circuit Court to second-degree murder and abuse of a child resulting in death.  
Prosecutors are recommending concurrent 25-year sentences.
 
Dasher told police she repeatedly struck the child in his crib when he wouldn't stop crying. Her 26-year-old boyfriend Edgar Rivas faces felony charges of abandoning a corpse and evidence tampering.

   An off-duty St. Louis firefighter is being called a hero after rescuing a man who had driven his truck into the River Des Peres Sunday.  

   Firefighter Chris Dimza was driving in the area just west of I-55 when he saw a crowd of people was pointing toward the river.  He stopped to see why.

   Upon learning that a truck had gone into the rain-swollen river, Dimza, who's part of a water rescue unit stationed in north St. Louis, dove into the water and swam toward bubbles.  A man surfaced briefly and the firefighter was able to bring him safely to shore.  

   Fire Department divers later pulled the man's truck from the water.  

   The driver was taken to a hospital.   He has not been identified and his condition is unknown.  No one else was injured in the incident.
