Earl Webster Cox, 61, is charged with murder, kidnapping and sodomy. He is accused of kidnapping Angie Housman, 9, after she got off a school bus in St. Ann in 1993. Authorities say he then took her to a secluded area in St. Charles County, sexually assaulted her and tied her to a tree, leaving her to die.
