Alice Uden son: 'I hate you'

CHEYENNE -- Jurors heard emotional testimony Friday from one of the sons of a Missouri woman on trial for allegedly shooting her husband in Wyoming almost 40 years ago.

Todd Scott, 53, of Casper, testified that his mother, Alice Uden, of Chadwick, Missouri, told him in the 1970s she'd shot 25-year-old Ronald Holtz as he slept. His mother's words haunted him for years afterward, he said.

He then turned to his frail, 75-year-old mother seated in a wheelchair across the courtroom and said: "I hate you."

DCI probes county attorney

LARAMIE -- The Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation is conducting an investigation into the Albany County Attorney's Office.

DCI Deputy Director Kebin Haller said it's unlikely the investigation would affect the outcome of past or current prosecutions carried out by the Albany County Attorney's Office under prosecuting attorney Richard Bohling, who is not seeking re-election.

Tax eyed for air subsidy

SHERIDAN -- Sheridan city councilors are trying to figure out what to do with Sheridan County's optional 1 percent sales ax, which is up for renewal in November.

The city discussion is focusing on whether a portion of tax could be used to help fund more reliable, subsidized air service at Sheridan County Airport.

That project is estimated to cost $2 million per year. The subsidy amount would be split between Sheridan County, Johnson County and the city of Sheridan.
