The St. Louis Dispatch reports Prosecuting Attorney Robert P. McCulloch said Gov. Matt Blunt's decision to commute the life sentence of Stacey Lannert - who murdered her father in 1990 - "cowardly." McCulloch says Blunt is "sneaking out the back door of the governor's mansion" and letting a "killer go out the front door." McCulloch is also critical of the fact that "there was no time to notify the surviving family members." See story here.
