WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Senate has passed a historic immigration bill. The vote on the bipartisan measure -- crafted by a group of lawmakers known as the Gang of Eight, was 68-32. It now goes to the House.

The legislation offers the hope of American citizenship to millions, while promising a military-style surge to secure the border.

The vote was far more than the majority needed to send the measure to the House. Prospects there are not nearly as good and many conservatives are opposed.

Vice President Joe Biden presided, and senators cast their votes from their desks, both steps reserved for momentous votes. The bill, a priority for President Barack Obama, would amount to the most sweeping changes in decades to the nation's immigration laws.

A child was thrown from a car during a serious accident this afternoon.

Police say an officer saw a driver speeding on Broadway towards the River City Casino. The officer tried to pull the suspect over, but the driver increased speed and ran several traffic lights. At the intersection of Broadway and Marceau the suspect slammed into several cars. Two adults suffered minor injuries and a 4-year-old child was ejected from a vehicle. The child is in critical condition.

Crews remain at the scene.

Autopsy scheduled on teen found dead in Columbia, IL

Thursday, 27 June 2013 16:45 Published in Local News

UPDATE:

Friends and family of the teen found dead in a Columbia, Illinois house yesterday, held a prayer service last hour.

17-year-old Erin Schneider was found dead during the investigation into a missing person report. The Major Case Squad has taken over the investigation and say an autopsy is planned for today. Investigators hope exam will shed light on what killed Schneider.

No arrests have been made in the case.

 

An autopsy will be performed later today on a teenage girl whose body was found in a Columbia home Thursday.  

   Major Case Squad Deputy Commander Thomas Coppotelli says police have identified the victim as 17 year old Erin Schneider of Columbia.   Schneider's body was discovered by Columbia Police in a home in the 200 block of Riebeling.  Schneider had been reported missing earlier in the day.  

   Columbia Police Chief won't speculate as to how Schneider died, saying an autopsy will be performed later today.  

   The major case squad is investigating another crime scene in connection with the teen's death, but has not identified that location.  

   Police say there have been no arrests, but police say they are questioning two people.

   Grief counselors will be on hand Friday morning at Columbia High School.  Students, teachers and friends of the victim can speak with counselors starting at 9 a.m.

   There will also be a non-denominational prayer service Friday at noon at Immaculate Conception Church on Quarry Rd. in Columbia for Erin Schnieder.
