A convicted felon accused of murdering an elderly Laclede County couple had only been out of prison for 48 days. Loved ones of Johnnie and Coleen Wilson are in mourning. Johnnie, 82, and his 76-year-old wife Coleen found a burglar outside their home. That discovery ultimately cost them their lives. Investigators say Jesse Dean Driskill, 30, forced the couple back into their home at gunpoint. Driskill’s friends say an abusive childhood pushed him toward a life of crime that started at the age of 14. They say they knew he was the killer the moment they heard about the murders.

The West Plains Zizzers finished the 2010 season strong by winning their final two games.  Things didn't go as well in the Ozark Conference however, as the Zizzers went 0-7.  Head coach Jack Randolph hopes to turn that around this season. "We expect to be improved.  We want to show we can compete in our conference. " The strengths for West Plains look to be on the offensive side of the ball.  "We have good leadership.  Our lineman are improved.  I feel like we have some good receivers", said Coach Randolph.  New quarterback Logan Miller will have the task of leading the Zizzers this season.  Last season he was one of West Plains top receivers.

Sentencing of a convicted Ozark county murderer is being delayed because the judge's calendar is over-booked. A judge in April convicted 30-year-old Jesus Sesena Murrieta for killing Alonzo Foster almost three years ago. Prosecutors say Murrieta shot Foster four times at a popular swimming area on Lick Creek in southern Ozark county. Murrieta was to be sentenced tomorrow in Lebanon where the trial had moved on a change of venue. But Judge John Moody's calendar is full, so the sentencing will now take place July 22nd.
