ST. LOUIS— AP -- St. Louis city prosecutors have dropped charges against a former teacher’s aide who was accused of molesting two 4-year-old boys.

John Cuneo was scheduled to go to trial this week on charges of first-degree child molestation, sexual contact with a student by a teacher and first-degree attempted child molestation. His attorney, Scott Rosenblum, was notified Tuesday that the charges had been dropped.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Circuit Attorney Jennifer Joyce’s office did not explain the decision, saying she does not comment on closed cases.

Rosenblum says the state’s main witness against Cuneo had credibility problems and several witnesses supported Cuneo.

Cuneo was an instruction care aide for the St. Louis Public School District. He is now retired.

Charges in '09 murder case dropped

ST. LOUIS (AP) — St. Louis prosecutors have dropped murder charges against a 31-year-old man in a 2009 double slaying in a Schnucks grocery store parking lot.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that first-degree murder charges against Jimmy Love-El were dismissed on Tuesday before his expected trial.

He was accused of killing 23-year-old Dwone Curry and 22-year-old Archie White during a drug deal outside the Schnucks store at 3441 Union Boulevard.

Love-El was accused of shooting each man in the head and taking their cellphones and drugs before fleeing in a car with a friend.

A spokeswoman for the St. Louis Circuit Attorney's Office declined to discuss the decision.

A 2011 trial of Love-E ended in a mistrial when a judge said the defendant's condition after a jailhouse fight could prejudice the jury.
