A former cable repairman will be in prison until he is nearly 100 years old for terrorizing and sexually assaulting a customer.

The crime happened in December of last year in O'Fallon, Missouri. James Hederle repaired the victim's cable one day and then asked her out. The next day, around midnight, Hederle returned to her house, broke down the front door, and tied the woman up. He proceeded to rape the woman and said if she told anyone he would kill her.

Thursday, the 22-year-old Hederle was sentenced to 75 years in prison for the crime.

The man involved in a fight outside of an East Alton bar in May, has died of his injuries.

Randy Baze was involved in the altercation outside of The Airliner Bar and Grill. Baze was severely injured when he fell in the parking lot and hit his head. The Post-Dispatch reports that Baze recently underwent surgery for the injuries, but never recovered from the procedure.

The Madison County Sheriff's Department says the fight was caught on video and it appears Baze hit the other man first. With Baze's death, the Sheriff does plan to submit the case to the state's attorney and charges could possibly be filed.

CHICAGO (AP) - Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka says she has no choice but to withhold paychecks from Illinois lawmakers.

Topinka spoke Thursday in Chicago after her office reviewed Gov. Pat Quinn's decision to cut state legislator's paychecks from a budget bill earlier this month. He called it the consequence for lawmakers' failure to address the state's $97 billion pension shortfall.

Topinka says she talked with the Illinois attorney general's office and they advised her that comptrollers can't pay state employees without an appropriation.

Topinka says she hopes the matter will be resolved "expeditiously." She says the courts likely will have the ultimate say, unless lawmakers quickly adopt pension reform.

Topinka says in her opinion government shouldn't be run through threats and blackmail.

Lawmakers are scheduled to receive their next paychecks on Aug. 1.
