Ellisville hires new city attorney

Tuesday, 20 August 2013 01:37 Published in Local News

   Ellisville has a new City Attorney.  

   At a special meeting Monday night, the Ellisville Board of Aldermen unanimously approved hiring George Restovich, of Restovich Allen LLC, to replace Paul Martin, who was fired June 27, 2013.  

   Restovich will begin his new job at Wednesday's regular meeting.   

  The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Restovich will initially work for an hourly rate.  In six months, the board will consider putting Restovich on retainer.

   The FBI is investigating a former metro-east official accused of embezzling more than $750,000 over the last 10 years.  

   The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that an audit by Alton accounting firm Kenneth E. Loy & Co., LLC has determined that former Moro Township Supervisor Donald Flack embezzled more than $100,000 last year alone.  But exactly how much was taken won't be known until the forensic audit is completed in September.  

   Auditors say charges against Flack are likely to be filed soon.

   Flack resigned May 14th when trustees confronted him about the missing funds.  

   Moro Township covers a rural area of Madison County northeast of Alton.

Oscar Pistorius indicted on murder charge

Monday, 19 August 2013 03:29 Published in National News

   PRETORIA, South Africa (AP) - Oscar Pistorius has been indicted on charges of murder and illegal possession of ammunition for the shooting death of the double-amputee Olympian's girlfriend on Valentine's Day.

   A Pretoria court on Monday set March 3 as the trial date for Pistorius, who says he shot Reeva Steenkamp by mistake, believing she was an intruder in his home. Prosecutors say he killed her after an argument. The prosecution submitted a list of more than 100 witnesses.

   Pistorius was in court for the indictment, and was seen crying and holding hands with his siblings before proceedings started.

   He faces a life sentence with a minimum of 25 years in prison if convicted of premeditated murder.
