ST. LOUIS (AP) - Supporters of a St. Louis man killed in a SWAT raid at his home 15 months ago are demanding answers about the internal police investigation of his death. The police department's Force Investigation Unit launched an investigation shortly after the death of 21-year-old Isaiah Hammett on June 7, 2017, but has not disclosed its findings. Supporters rallied Thursday at police headquarters on what would have been Hammett's 23rd birthday.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - Planned Parenthood says abortions will stop at its Columbia clinic after Oct. 1 unless a federal judge blocks enforcement of one of Missouri's abortion restrictions. The organization is asking for a court order to stop Missouri from requiring doctors at the Columbia location to get admitting privileges at nearby hospitals in order to perform abortions. The organization says enforcing the requirement would mean St. Louis would be the only site that can provide abortions.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri prosecutor says he won't press charges related to allegations of conflicts of interest between state agencies and a trucking technology company. Cole County Prosecutor Mark Richardson says he found no evidence of criminal wrongdoing. State Highway Patrol and Missouri Department of Transportation officials were alleged to have served on the board of a company that for years received the only state contract to provide technology allowing truckers to bypass Missouri weigh stations.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The longtime aide of former Democratic leader Mike Sanders was sentenced to six months in prison for his role in stealing campaign funds. The sentence given to Calvin Williford Thursday was far shorter than Sanders received on Wednesday, when he was sentenced to more than two years in federal prison and ordered to forfeit $40,000. Prosecutors say Williford stole campaign funds to pay for gambling trips and political activities.
