KOAM MORNING NEWS TO KNOW 2-19

Updated:

QUADRUPLE MURDER INVESTIGATION

  • A judge hands down a life sentence for the man who killed a Southeast Kansas woman and her three children.  David Bennett Junior of Cherryvale appeared in court on Friday for sentencing.  In December, he pleaded guilty to capital murder and three counts of first degree premeditated murder.  Bennett Junior received life in prison without parole for one count of capitol murder along with three additional life terms for premeditated murder.  

CARTERVILLE WATER (due to weather this was postponed)

  • Carterville City administrators are preparing to shut down water today.  The city will be shutting off water today by closing valves at the water tower around eight in the morning.  Officials say they'll be repairing a hydrant near that location.  The city says this is work they started a few weeks back, but freezing temperatures forced them to stop.

PRESIDENT TWEETS

  • President Trump unleashed a barrage of tweets over the weekend, many in response to Friday's indictment of more than a dozen Russian nationals accused of trying to undermine confidence in U.S. democracy.  The tweets attack the FBI, lawmakers, and President Obama.  None, though, was critical of Russia.        

FLORIDA SHOOTING FOLO

  • As funeral services started for victims of last week's shooting at a Florida high school, many of the teen survivors are trying to take the fight for gun control into their own hands.  They've announced a nation-wide demonstration scheduled for march 24th, called "The March of Our Lives".  And this week, many will travel to the state capitol to deliver petitions calling for a Florida ban on assault weapons.
