Mo. Radio Show Host Held in Wife's Death

By DENISE LAVOIE
Associated Press Writer
Published November 7, 2005, 3:16 PM CST

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- A Missouri radio talk show host was arrested on murder charges Monday for allegedly poisoning his wife by spiking her Gatorade with a chemical found in antifreeze.

James Keown, 31, was arrested at the radio station where he worked in Jefferson City, Mo. He later made a court appearance via video and said he would not fight efforts to return him to Massachusetts.

Prosecutors said he slowly poisoned Julie Keown, 31, with ethylene glycol while the couple were living in Massachusetts in 2004.

District Attorney Martha Coakley said the motive may have been financial: Julie Keown had a $250,000 life insurance policy, but her husband was never able to collect because her death was under investigation.

5. I scanned his blog, but didn't see much politically.
Anyone in Mid-Missouri that has heard his show?

Very sad.

9. I don't think so. That's another Julie, I think. Because his wife died
in 2004. These pictures were from October, 2005.

13. Did you check the blogs he recommends?
From one recommended blog:
"A very tricky time for the Bush Administration; but as I said yesterday, I think Bush doesn't get the credit he deserves for being a politician. As Jet said in the comment to yesterday's post, Bush is less likeable than Bill Clinton because he just doesn't have the same charisma, but is probably a better LEADER than Clinton." http://mattlacasse.blogspot.com /

From another:
"Nancy Pelosi is a cheap political hack with absolutely no idea what government should be all about. Even if she had a valid point, which she never does, what was she thinking? She is a member of the minority party and put forth a motion that the majority party investigate themselves. Is this amateur time on the hill or what? GOOOD choice, Dems...that is a super minority leader. Choosing her ranks right up there with picking "Screaming Howard" Dean as the party chairman. Man, maybe the Dems ought to go ahead and let Martin Sheen run for president. He did a great job on TV for the last 6 years, maybe it would transfer over.

Actually, I should thank the Democrats. Even though the President is vulnerable in 04, they go out and nominate the one guy that couldn't beat him. I am really looking forward to them putting Hillary up in '08. With her on the ticket, I could get elected president.

I am happy to report that the senate did their job and ok'd opening up ANWR for exploration and drilling. I am planning a Caribou Stew party for the day they build the first oil derrick." http://www.whiteboardguru.blogspot.com /

He's pointing to these guys and the first one is his friend who just had a birthday.

7. Jeff City...such a nice town.
This will probably be a made-for-TV movie, before too long.

8. Here's some links
His show, according to the station's website, is called "Party Line". http://www.klik1240.com / Which, according to the schedule, broadcasts "Paul Harvey" and is on right before O'Really. http://www.klik1240.com/page3.shtml

Also, the parent company (cumulus media) is the one that banned the Dixie Chicks from its stations.

I'd say, based on all of this, he's RW.

16. Yeah, it's a political messageboard so we're interested in POLITICS.
Even the politics of some jerk who killed his wife.

20. Nope--we discuss politics in all the forums.
GD Politics is reserved more for more specific discussions of candidates, races, and more narrow issues that revolve around politics.

Politics in general is a running theme through ALL the of DU's discussion forums.

17. The Republican Party makes claims to be ethical, moral, upstanding. This
is another Conservative hypocrite...standing in a very long long...

That's what the point was.

22. My Co-worker used to work with him!
She said he is a total creep. She told me all about him being investigated while they worked together and how bizarre he was to work with in general even before his wife died.

CREEPY!
