Man charged with killing Angie Housman pleads not guilty
The man charged with kidnapping and killing Angie Housman pleaded not guilty in a St. Charles County courtroom Monday morning. Earl Cox was indicted by a St. Charles County grand jury last month on charges of first-degree murder, first-degree kidnapping and sodomy. A trial date has not been set. Lawyers will meet on Feb. 24, 2020 to decide a date for Cox's trial. Angie Housman was last seen getting off a school bus on Nov. 18, 1993 less than a block from her home in St. Ann. Nine days later, her body was found in the August A. Busch Memorial Conservation Area. Officials found Angie died of hypothermia.
Deputies responding to the 7:24 a.m. call found James Kenneth Boone, 64, deceased inside his Pawnee Drive home in the Spring Lake Township subdivision of North Holiday Hills.
They located Kenneth John Boone walking down the road in the neighborhood. The younger man was apprehended with a blunt force object in his possession, according to Capt. Mark Bennett of the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office.
“That same object is thought to have been used in the homicide,” Bennett said.
An autopsy performed on James Boone on Monday showed the “manner of death to be a homicide and the cause is multiple blunt force trauma,” Bennett said.
In a probable cause transcript obtained from the court by the Grand Haven Tribune, Ottawa County Sheriff's Det. Jacob Mucha said that the defendant was located "a short distance from the residence covered in blood."
Mucha also told the judge that the defendant made an unpromted statement, while sitting in the police car, that he just killed his father.
