GRANITE CITY, Ill. (AP) -- Authorities issued charges against an East St. Louis man for the death of a Cahokia man who was found in an Illinois state park lake on Sunday.
Scott L Thompson, 42, was charged with two counts of first-degree murder for the death of 20-year-old Dakota Jones.
Illinois State Police say Jones’ body was found Sunday morning in the water near a boat launch ramp at Horseshoe Lake State Park near Pontoon Beach.
Authorities say Jones died of blunt force trauma, and evidence at the scene indicates the case was a homicide.
Illinois State Police Capt. Jim Morrissey says Jones had been dead less than 24 hours when his body was found.
Thompson was taken into custody on Sunday and remains in police custody with no bond.
St. Louis Public School superintendent Dr. Kelvin Adams revised first day attendance for the district.
The number of students actually increased to just over 20,400. That is about 350 more students than reported yesterday and an increase of almost 200 over the first day last year. Adams said the increase was due to students enrolling throughout the day.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Missouri Supreme Court has affirmed the conviction of a southeast Missouri man who was sentenced to death for the ambush killing of a state trooper in 2005.
Lance Shockley of the southeast Missouri town of Van Buren was convicted of first-degree murder for killing Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Carl Dewayne Graham Jr., who was shot in the back of the head just as he had returned home from work. Graham had been investigating Shockley for a fatal traffic accident.
Shockley has been on death row since 2009. His appeal cited a litany of alleged procedural errors at trial, claimed a juror was tainted and said the sentence didn't fit the crime. The Supreme Court disagreed in a unanimous ruling.
