SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) - A southwest Missouri youth football coach accused of kidnapping and killing a 10-year-old girl is now facing rape and sodomy charges.
 
Greene County prosecutors added the new charges against 46-year-old Craig Michael Wood of Springfield on Monday. Court documents indicate the additional charges in the February death of Hailey Owens stem from newly available autopsy results.
 
Hailey was abducted while walking home from her best friend's house, just two blocks from her own home. Neighbors reported watching in horror and unsuccessfully giving chase as Hailey was pulled into a pickup truck that sped away.
 
She was found dead hours later in the basement of Wood's home.
 
Wood is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Thursday. His public defender says he plans to ask for a delay because of the new charges.

Democrats eye 15 cities for 2016 convention

Tuesday, 22 April 2014 12:24 Published in Local News
 WASHINGTON (AP) - The Democratic National Committee has asked Chicago, New York and 13 others to make a pitch to host the presidential nominating convention in 2016.
 
The DNC on Tuesday said the party will accept proposals through June 6 and will pick a host city either late this year or early in 2015.
 
In addition to Chicago and New York, the cities under consideration include: Atlanta; Cleveland; Columbus, Ohio; Detroit; Indianapolis; Las Vegas; Miami; Nashville; Orlando; Philadelphia; Phoenix; Pittsburgh and Salt Lake City.
 
Some cities seem more likely than others. For instance, President Barack Obama, who will be leaving the White House in 2017, calls Chicago home and his potential successor Hillary Rodham Clinton is from Illinois. Clinton also represented New York in the Senate.
