Ex-cop's murder trial continues
Wed, 09 Apr 2014 21:07:37 GMT —
The trial continues for the former St. Louis police officer charged with gunning down his neighbor in an ongoing dispute.
Glenn Head was charged in the shooting death of 67-year-old William "Bill" Bacon.
Head is charged with second-degree murder in the Dec. 11, 2012 death.
Bacon died in the Northeast Regional Medical Center emergency room. The shooting occurred about 3:30 p.m. near County Road 312. A copy of the criminal complaint said that Bacon was shot in the chest.
An initial report said that Head and Bacon had an ongoing dispute over whether a county road was opened or closed. A probable cause statement filed with the criminal charges said that Bacon contacted the Knox County Sheriff's Office to complain that someone was trespassing on his property.
The Sheriff's Office received a second call of a shooting at the same location.
Deputies and troopers from the Missouri State Highway Patrol went to the scene where they found Bacon lying on the ground with a bullet wound in his chest.
Head told Sheriff Mike Kite that he had shot Bacon following an altercation, according to the probable cause statement.
