Marthasville is a city in Warren County, Missouri, United States. The population was 837 at the 2000 census. The Katy Trail, a 225 mile long bike path, passes through Marthasville, and the original grave of Daniel Boone is located there. In 1845, Boone's remains were disinterred and moved to Kentucky for burial.

Because of the many wineries from here east to Defiance, Marthasville is considered to mark one end of the "Missouri Weinstrasse".

What is criminal appeals law?

A criminal appeal is a formal request to rehear a case that has already been decided -- a request that a new court reconsider the decision of the first court.
