AP-MO--Right Now Latest Missouri news: DEPUTY-SHOOTING NEW: Patrol: Investigation of Lincoln County shooting will take days TROY, Mo. (AP) -- The state patrol's investigation of a Lincoln County deputy's fatal shooting of two suspects is expected to take several days. Late Sunday night deputy shot and killed the driver of a pickup and a passenger after the truck began backing toward him in a driveway near Troy. But a relative of one of the men says the driver simply forgot to engage the emergency brake. The name of the deputy has not been released. He is on administrative leave. Killed in the shooting were pickup driver Tyler Teasley of Silex and passenger Mike Brown of Moscow Mills. Sheriff Dan Torres says it began when the deputy saw a pickup filled with several young men speeding. The truck stopped on a residential driveway, where the shooting occurred. IN-LAWS SLAYING NEW: Jury considers Irby's fate CLAYTON, Mo. (AP) -- A St. Louis County jury is deciding the fate of Dennis Irby in the fatal shooting of his brother-in-law in 2002. Irby was one of three in-laws accused of killing 42-year-old Jeffrey Sexton because of abuse of Sexton's wife, Lois. The jury deliberated until 8:30 last night before being sent home. It is Irby's second trial. The first ended in a hung jury and mistrial in February. Irby is 56 and the brother-in-law of Lois Sexton. She was badly beaten and fled to Irby's home in Raleigh, North Carolina, 15 days before her husband was killed. Lois Sexton's brother, Robert Hoover of St. Charles, was acquitted of murder in December. Her father, Ervell Hoover, was convicted of second-degree murder in July, and is serving a ten-year prison sentence. KC SCHOOLS-ENROLLMENT NEW: Kansas City school enrollment down again KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Enrollment in the Kansas City School District is down by more than 14-hundred compared to a year ago. It's the sharpest drop in at least five years and part of a trend that started in the 1970s. The decline stems from the growth of charter schools. University Academy says it's full to capacity with one-thousand-50 students and has a waiting list of three-thousand. The new figures emerge as the school board nears a decision on whether to keep superintendent Bernard Taylor or seek a replacement. The district also asked the state for an accreditation review. EMINEM Judge tosses most of relatives' suit against Eminem MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) -- A judge throws out most of a lawsuit filed by a former Missouri couple against their nephew -- the rapper Eminem. Jack and Betti Schmitt formerly lived in St. Joseph. That's also the hometown of Eminem, whose real name is Marshall Mathers the Third. The Schmitts allege they moved to Michigan three years ago at Eminem's request but are now being evicted unfairly from the home he had built for them. They also claim their nephew agreed to pay them 100-thousand dollars a year for five years but has paid them far less. A lawyer for Eminem says there was no contract between the Schmitts and their nephew and that they performed no work for the money. The Michigan judge says the Schmitts can still pursue a claim that Eminem unjustly profited from the improvements they made to the Clinton Township home. MADISON COUNTY-STRIKE NEW: Madison County strike ends after union, board accept contract deal EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) -- More than 400 Madison County employees are back to work after approval of a new four-year contract. Local seven-nine-nine of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees says members voted overwhelmingly to accept the deal. The county board approved last night. Workers at 15 county government sites, ranging from the courts to the offices of the sheriff, prosecutor, and health department, walked off their jobs October 12th. They hadn't had a contract since last December. (Copyright 2005 by The Associated Press. All Rights Reserved.) AP-NY-10-25-05 1206EDT
