Jackson County prosecutor takes Maryville case; rally planned Tuesday

Associate Judge Glen Dietrich has chosen Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker as the special prosecutor in the case of an alleged sexual assault in 2012 in Maryville, Mo. Nodaway County Prosecutor Robert Rice asked Dietrich to appoint a special prosecutor last Wednesday, after a story on the case in The Kansas City Star prompted an international outcry.
