Two Missouri Supreme Court judges to retire

(AP) — Two Missouri Supreme Court judges are retiring sometime this fall. 

The chief justice on Wednesday announced the upcoming retirements of Judges Patricia Breckenridge and George Draper. 

The Missouri Constitution requires judges to retire by age 70 or they automatically forfeit their pensions. 

Breckenridge and Draper are nearing their 70th birthdays. 

A court spokeswoman says the judges have not yet announced when their last days will be. 

Breckenridge was appointed to the high court in 2007 by former Republican Gov. Matt Blunt. 

Former Democratic Gov. Jay Nixon appointed Draper to the court in 2011.
