RADIO TALKER BUSTED IN WIFE'S DEATH

James Keown, 31, was arrested Monday at KLIK in Jefferson City. The AM station -- once a bad-ass Top 40 playa -- is now NewsTalk 1240; Keown covered Jeff City politics and hosted a show.

His wife died in Massachusetts, and Boston's CBS affiliate does the tell:
The Middlesex District Attorney says Keown and his wife Julie, also 31, moved to Waltham from Missouri for business last year.

During a period of time in September 2004, prosecutors say he poisoned her with ethylene glycol, a chemical that is commonly found in anti-freeze.

Julie died and James Keown moved back to Missouri.

Keown was arrested Monday morning in Jefferson City, Missouri after being indicted last week by a Middlesex Grand Jury on one count of murder.
Juicy, and the web site has photos of Keown and an unidentified hairy companion residing on his scalp.

Missouriradio.net also has a forum about the arrest.

Update 4:40 p.m.Keown was arrested during his morning air shift. Cops cuffed him during a commercial break! Who finished his shift?

Keown's blog is a delightful read, and it includes several photos of Keown (this one is our fave). We feel for his friend, Julie (not to be confused with his dead wife, Julie).

Davy Crockett had class ... this guy must be a Michael Weenie (Savage) fan ....

Henna rinses are meant for black street-walkers, not Irish potato(e) farmers.

Suppose he's related to Crash Craddock?? http://curbstonecritic.blogspot.com for Sunday Oct 30th....

I hope none of his friends in the pictures took him up on an offer to buy a round of drinks....

Terrible joke, but I couldn't resist. I hope he gets the death penalty.

This is James Keown's sister and I wanted everyone to go to my blog to tell me what they think about this since his site it down. There is no way in hell he would ever do that to anyone! Here is my site: http://shawnaek.blogspot.com/.

And, Anne you can go to hell because he would never do that. You're a bitch for saying that.
