Running a business can be a difficult enterprise, especially when that business involves the care of livestock. Often, unexpected circumstances can arise that could negatively impact the health of the animals, ultimately threatening the success of the business. Unfortunately, police claim that money allegedly owed in a business arrangement involving livestock is at the center of a case that led to murder charges against a man in Missouri.
Most people in Missouri work hard to buy the things they own. As such, it may be difficult to predict how people might respond when their personal property -- and, potentially, their personal safety -- are under threat, especially if they believe there is a weapon involved. Unfortunately, a man now faces an assault charge after he allegedly shot a teenager who he caught breaking into a vehicle on his property.
When a person is charged with a crime, he or she faces a variety of different decisions, most of which will likely have a significant impact on the rest of his or her life. Unfortunately, few people feel prepared to make these decisions on their own. In fact, a man in Missouri is now likely wondering about his options after he was accused of murder.
It is hard to imagine how a person might react upon arriving at his or her parked vehicle, only to find that someone is attempting to take it away. In fact, it would likely be easy to assume that the vehicle is being stolen or that the owner's safety may be in danger, potentially prompting him or her to take action to protect both property and safety. Unfortunately, a woman in Missouri now faces criminal charges after she was accused of assault in connection with someone trying to repossess a vehicle.
Family dynamics can be complicated. Despite the volatility that some families experience, there is rarely violence. However, a man in Missouri is now facing a murder charge in connection with the death of his mother.
When a person is accused or suspected of a crime that is reported in the newspaper and other media outlets, there is typically only one side of the story that is told -- the side of law enforcement officers. Though many will make a judgment based on these reports alone, a person is entitled to the presumption of innocence unless there is sufficient evidence that proves guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. In fact, a man in Missouri is now likely considering his legal options now that he is facing criminal charges, including assault, reportedly after a police pursuit.
There are many people who have little experience with the law. As such, they may not fully understand all their options, should they find themselves facing legal charges. Some people may even assume that a conviction of charges is the end of the criminal justice process. However, it is often appropriate to file an appeal following a conviction. In fact, the Missouri Supreme Court recently overturned one man's conviction on assault and armed criminal action charges.
When a crime occurs in a town, there is an understandable need for answers. For example, the need to ensure that there is not a safety threat to other community members after five people were killed is strong. However, it is necessary to ensure that any arrests made and charges filed are supported by evidence in the case. Unfortunately, it is unclear what evidence supports the murder charges filed against two Missouri men.
Conflict is a relatively common part of life. While most conflict occurs as part of a verbal exchange, there does come a time when it may be necessary for a person to defend him or herself from violence at the hands of another. Unfortunately, there are few details available following a recent incident, termed an assault by Missouri law enforcement officers, that left a man in the hospital.
The relationship between family members can often become volatile, especially if there is money involved. Though these disputes may lead to anger and arguments, they rarely lead to violence. Despite this, a man in Missouri is now charged with murder in connection to the death of his cousin.
