Radio Talk Show Host Charged With Murder

What a strange story. James Keown, a Missouri AM radio talkshow host who covers the capitol building in Jefferson City, has been charged with murder in Massachussetts for poisoning his wife with the chemical in antifreeze over a period of time. Allegedly, he spiked her Gatorade.

Just last month, Mr. Keown started a blog which he last updated on Saturday, writing about an event he attended the night before. He certainly gives no clue an arrest was imminent.

    I always thought Gatorade was poisonous, but who knew that the glowing green dye was from antifreeze? His blog, which I reviewed earlier in the day, reads like someone who is either sweet and inoffensive, or compensating for feelings of guilt by being sweet and inoffensive. I wonder why they claim it took a year to 'finish tests' on the victim.
