Coach charged with child's murder
SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI- A football coach is charged with murder in the kidnapping and death of a ten-year-old girl he's accused of grabbing off the street.
Craig Wood is a middle-school coach and the body of Hailey Owens was found in a house he owns.
Police say he and the girl apparently didn't know each other even though Wood worked for the Springfield School District since 1998 as a substitute teacher, coach and teacher's aide.
Owens was abducted just blocks from her home.
