Memorial fund set up for slain Alton woman

   Friends of a murdered metro-east woman are hoping a memorial fund can raise enough money to cover funeral expenses and a grave marker.  Friends of 30 year old Courtney Coats are hoping to raise about 15-thousand dollars through online donations.  
   Coats' was reported missing November 25th.  Her dismembered body was found last week along the Illinois River near East Hardin, IL. 
   Madison County prosecutors have charged 28 year old Patrick Chase of Alton and 30 year old Brandon Chittum of Collinsville with first-degree murder.  
   Both men are held on $1 million bail. 
   The memorial fund is based online at www.GoFundMe.com. Donations also may be dropped off or mailed to the Jerseyville Banking Center in Jerseyville.
