Posted June 22
St. Louis, MO — - St. Louis City is working on a plan to provide more security for witnesses to crime.
St. Louis Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner said witnesses being afraid to come forward is a reason why many homicides aren't solved.
St. Louis Police and prosecutors are in talks about a new prevention program which includes moving witnesses to a new home.
Gardner says she's seeking a state grant to cover expenses.
