Change of plea hearing set for Kinloch mayor

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The mayor of the impoverished St. Louis County town of Kinloch faces sentencing in November after pleading guilty to three federal charges.

Keith Conway admitted in his plea that he used city money for things such as Caribbean cruises, a time-share condominium in Florida and even to pay electric bills and delinquent income taxes.

He was indicted in the spring for wire fraud, federal program theft and witness tampering.

The witness tampering charge accuses Conway of lying to city officials about the allegations and encouraging them to lie on his behalf.

Conway has been mayor of Kinloch, a town of less than 300, since 1999.
