MOUNT VERNON, Ill. (AP) - A hearing officer is weighing whether to restore the Illinois driver's license of a former state trooper blamed for a 2007 freeway crash in that killed two sisters.

The Belleville News-Democrat reports that Matt Mitchell said during Tuesday's hearing in Mount Vernon that he'll never drive again in Illinois. Now living in Texas, he says he needs the license to get a job.

A decision is expected within 90 days.

Mitchell was a state trooper driving more than 120 mph and using his cellphone in November 2007 when his car crossed the median on Interstate 64 east of St. Louis and slammed into a car occupied by two Collinsville sisters. The girls, ages 18 and 13, died.

Mitchell later received probation after pleading guilty to reckless homicide.

   STEELVILLE, Mo. (AP) - An eastern Missouri man is charged with second-degree murder, accused of shooting another man following an argument along the Meramec River.

   The shooting happened Saturday afternoon. The suspect, 59 year old James Crocker of Steelville, is jailed on $650,000 cash-only bond.

   Court records allege that Crocker, a property owner along the river, was angry that a man on a float trip stopped to urinate on a gravel bar. Crocker is accused of shooting the man's traveling companion, 48 year old Paul Dart, Jr. of Robertsville.

  Dart's widow, Loretta Dart says her husband had tried to intervene to keep the peace.

   "My husband was trying to solve the situation without anyone getting hurt," she said.  "And it wound up taking his life." 

   Dart was shot in the head. Crawford County Sheriff Randy Martin says Crocker then went to a neighboring home and asked a woman to call 911.

   Dart's widow says he was on his annual float trip with about 50 others.
