A Missouri Supreme Court spokeswoman says one of the court's judges has died.

Court spokeswoman Beth Riggert announced Tuesday morning that 69-year-old Judge Richard B. Teitelman died, but provided no other details.

Teitelman had served on the court since March 2002 and was chief justice from July 2011 through June 2013. Before joining the Supreme Court he served on the Missouri Court of Appeals Eastern District for four years.

The court cancelled oral arguments scheduled for Tuesday. Funeral arrangements are pending.
