A jury found Donald Nash guilty of capital murder for the 1982 killing of Judy Spencer. He was sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility for probation or parole for 50 years. Nash appealed his case asserting that he was wrongly convicted under section 565.001, RSMo 1978, because he argues that this statute was repealed in 1983 and that no other statute replaced it to criminalize the murder with which he was charged. Nash also maintained that his conviction should be reversed because it rests on insufficient evidence, he was not allowed to offer a circumstantial evidence jury instruction, and the trial court excluded his evidence that another person committed the murder.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- Several Shoney's restaurants in the Ozarks shut down suddenly.  Now employees want answers and the main question they're asking is "Where's my paycheck?" The former manager says she's owed more than $1,200.  She says hers is one of many stories of frustration and confusion in the wake of the store closings. A guy named Brent Cotter owned eight Shoney's restaurants in the Ozarks, including two in Springfield and one in Arkansas.  They are all closed.  About 20 employees at each location are now confused and upset after finding their place of employment suddenly closed.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- If you're under the age of 21 and you live in Missouri, you can legally drink.  The idea behind this caveat -- and Missouri is certainly not alone in it -- is to give parents some control over their childrens' alcohol consumption by ensuring they're present when it happens.   Kyle Pierson just turned 21, and he enjoys a beer every once in a while.  But that's not much different from when he was 18, 19, and 20. "My first drink was probably around high school," he said.

Quickly confusing a cashier into giving a thief too much cash is called quick changing and it's happening again in the Ozarks. It's an old trick that causes a worker to give someone more change than they deserve. Gas station clerk Lashara Luttrull says she's not naïve -- but she still got conned. She says a scammer fooled her once now she wants to warn others about quick change confusion. "For the life of me I can't think of when I handed him the other $50," Luttrull said, recalling the day she was tricked.

The United States Supreme Court ruled Monday that sex offenders convicted before 2006 may not have to register if they move across state lines. In the 7-2 ruling, Justices said rules requiring sex offenders to update their registration when crossing state lines don't automatically apply to those who committed their crimes before the law was passed. The law, the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, also known as the Adam Walsh act, created a national sex offender registry.

Springfield, Mo. - The Greene County Collector's office has announced that personal property and real estate tax receipts can now be printed by taxpayers online. The Collector's office mailed 2011 tax bills to county property owners on Wednesday, November 9th. These bills must be paid by Dec. 31 to avoid penalties.

This year, for the first time, taxpayers can help save tax dollars by electing to print their own receipts online rather than have the county pay for the postage to mail it. The taxpayer can do this by checking a box on the return portion of their statements.
