UPDATE: Suspect held for Belleville murder

Tuesday, 03 December 2013 03:26 Published in Local News

   A 53 year old Belleville man shot to death as he opened his front door Saturday night was not the intended target, police say.  

   The St. Clair County State's Attorney has charged 36 year old Dashon Hinkle with first-degree murder in the shooting of John Fath Senior.  

   Belleville police say Hinkle had gone to Fath's home in the 400 block of North 40th Street to "pay a visit" to the victim's son, John Fath Junior.  

   Police say the junior Fath and Hinkle both have long criminal records.  

   Hinkle is jailed on a $2 million bond.

   The EGHM Foundation, a local business group that raises money for district projects, will fund the remaining $1.3 million needed for the project. 

IL lawmakers convening special session on pensions

Tuesday, 03 December 2013 03:19 Published in Local News

   SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Illinois lawmakers are set to consider a potentially historic plan to solve the state's worst-in-the-nation $100 billion pension crisis.

   Tuesday will begin with a morning hearing where a bipartisan committee of lawmakers will discuss the proposal. Opponents and supporters also will get a chance to weigh in.

   A clear majority of committee members signed off on the plan Monday, sending it to the floor of the House and Senate.

   Illinois has the nation's worst-funded state pension systems. The bill before the Legislature on Tuesday is estimated to save $160 billion over 30 years by trimming retirement benefits.

   Illinois' legislative leaders and the governor have spent recent days drumming up support for the proposal.

   Labor unions say it's unfair to retirees and believe that some elements are unconstitutional.
