WAYNESVILLE, Mo. -- Prosecutors on Wednesday dropped murder and rape charges against the stepfather of a 9-year-old girl who was killed in Barry County in November 2007.   David Spears, who was married to the mother of Rowan Ford, instead pleaded guilty for endangering the welfare of a child and hindering prosecution. Rowan disappeared from her home in Stella, south of Neosho in Newton County.  Her body was found in a cave or sinkhole in McDonald County a week later.  Spears and Chris Collings, a friend of Spears, were charged with first-degree murder and rape, and prosecutors sought a death penalty against both men. After many delays in both trials, which were moved out of Barry County to try to ensure fair outcomes, Collings was tried last March in Rolla.  A jury convicted him and recommended a death penalty, which Circuit Judge Mary Sheffield imposed in May.  Years of appeals will follow that verdict before the state is allowed to carry out that sentence.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.--  If a tornado is coming toward your house-- where do you go? Until today, there was no state map of public "safe room" locations in our area. It may be hard to believe-- but the State Emergency Management Agency does not keep of map of where of FEMA-approved safe rooms can be found. The reason, they tell us those rooms are only supposed to be used by people within a half mile radius of the location, so it's up to each individual shelter to get the word out. But, there is one engineering company in town that has been a part of most of the safe rooms in our area, so we asked them to compile this map for us. Brian Orr is with Toth and Associates sees the world in numbers.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- We should all be flattered.  According to multiple contentions made Monday on a cable television show, the Ozarks is about to become the center of what remains of human civilization. "Conspiracy Theory," hosted by Jesse Ventura, followed a "trail" of "evidence" to multiple locations across the Ozarks, claiming to support the notion that a powerful group is very close to bringing about the end of life as we know it; a group that will subsequently make the Ozarks its home.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo -- They can give you a "pick me up" or help you rehydrate after long day in the sun, but according numerous studies energy drinks and sports drinks are exposing people to possible dental issues. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation , New York University College of Dentistry , Dimensions of Dental Hygiene , and General Dentistry all came to a similar conclusion: many popular drinks are capable of hurting your teeth by eroding your enamel. "That eroded enamel then is more susceptible to decay and sensitivity," said Springfield dentist Dr. Michael Beasley.

ROLLA, Mo. -- Twelve jurors recommended Friday evening that Christopher Collings get a death penalty for raping and killing his friend's 9-year-old daughter more than four years ago at Collings' home near Wheaton.  The jurors unanimously found, after 45 minutes of deliberations, that the murder involved two of the 17 possible aggravating circumstances that are necessary under Missouri law to impose a death penalty. The jury found Rowan Ford's death involved torture and that it occurred because the girl was a witness to her own rape and could have identified her rapists to investigators.  Prosecutors and defense attorneys wrapped up their closing arguments around 5:30.  The jury told the judge at 6:15 that it had a verdict and returned to the courtroom shortly afterwards.  The jury convicted Collings of first-degree murder on Tuesday for the death of Rowan Ford of Stella in November 2007.

Today's science question: What is in a Cheeto that allows it to burn? There is energy in everything.  One way to measure that is with the unit of calories.  (A calorie is the amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one gram of water 1 o C). And don't confuse it with the kind of calorie you try to keep from reaching your waistline.  A more common measure of energy is the Joule, which we use to measure instability in the StormTeam weather center.

BRANSON WEST, Mo. -- It was touted as one of the Branson area's biggest housing developments in years.  Indian Ridge Resort broke ground in 2006, but construction stopped years ago and now the vacant property is going on the auction block. Nestled in the rolling mountains of Stone County, above Table Rock Lake, 13 condos in various stages of completion were to be dream homes.      The construction loan for one lot -- or half of one condo -- was $440,000, according to court documents, which also indicate more than 20 people had already bought a home, but they never got the chance to move in. Now, a little more than 25 acres with all the structures will be put up for auction with an opening bid of $550,000.

MELVA, Mo. -- Hidden away in the foothills of Taney County are ruins of a town that few Ozarkians remember.   Don Rittenhouse, a Hollister resident, had ancestors who lived in Melva.  “The old town site, the old hotel or boarding house, whatever they call it, by the railroad and then I saw where they had built houses up there on the lots.   The best I remember, they didn't have foundations; a lot of them just had rocks," said Rittenhouse. There isn't much left of Melva today.  If you hike to see the ruins, you'll see several old foundations and a tall chimey that still stands amongst the trees.

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- A customer wants to know why some local businesses scan your driver's license when you go to buy beer or wine.  He wanted to know what information the little strip on the back of your license contains, and why some stores scan it into their computer systems. It happened to Mark West of Springfield at a local Walgreens store, and we found several other businesses do the same thing. "It was bothersome," said West. West says his quick trip to a Walgreens recently left him empty handed.
