Court officials want bigger budget for high profile murder cases

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Two high-profile murder cases that could go to trial next year have prompted central Missouri court officials to seek a larger budget.

Cole County Circuit Judge Pat Joyce says most of the court's expenses are for juries and security.

The two high-profile murder trials are for 16-year-old Alyssa Bustamante and 56-year-old David Hosier.

Bustamante is charged as an adult for the killing last year of Elizabeth Olten.

Hosier is charged with the killing of Angela Gilpin and Rodney Gilpin in a Jefferson City apartment complex.
