Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon has declared a state of emergency and activated the National Guard in advance of a grand jury decision about whether Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson will be charged in the fatal shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson.
Nixon said Monday the National Guard would assist state and local police as needed, in case there is civil unrest when the grand jury’s decision is announced.
There was no indication an announcement is imminent. There is no specific date for a decision to be revealed about whether Wilson should face charges for shooting Brown on Aug. 9. The St. Louis County prosecutor has said he expects the grand jury to reach a decision in mid-to-late November.
A St. Louis woman has been sentenced to 78 years in prison for beating, whipping and waterboarding her children.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that 34-year-old Lakechia Schonta Stanley, of St. Louis, was sentenced Friday for multiple assault and endangerment charges. Prosecutors described the abuse as “systematic torture.” Her children told interviewers that the abuse included whippings with electrical cords and being forced into scalding or freezing showers.
The abuse came to light in October 2011 after one of the children went to school complaining of severe pain in her arm. Prosecutors say the girl revealed Stanley had beaten her with a baseball bat because she had not cleaned the kitchen quickly enough.
Stanley’s husband, 30-year-old Andrew Rui Stanley, was sentenced to 160 years in prison for related charges.
