ROLLA, Mo. (AP) -- The Missouri University of Science and Technology is planning a "Jeopardy!" watch party for a faculty member who landed a spot on the game show.

Ilene Morgan will make her debut on Tuesday's episode of the show. The university says the watch party is planned for 4:30 p.m. that day in the Gale Bullman Multi-Purpose Building on the Rolla campus.

Morgan is an associate professor of mathematics and statistics. She tried twice to land a spot on the program before succeeding last year. She traveled to Culver City, Calif., to compete on Oct. 29 and 30.

Morgan described her "Jeopardy!" experience as "bucket-list awesome." She said she was having fun and wasn't thinking about the audience, the camera or the prize money.

A Swansea, Illinois woman found dead in her apartment Friday was killed by someone she knew. That's according to police who day the body of 50-year-old Carmen Boyd was found by her landlord.

That's according to police who day the body of 50-year-old Carmen Boyd was found by her landlord. Police arrested 37-year-old Kristofer McDavid Saturday. A day later, the St. Clair County prosecutor charged McDavid with first-degree murder.

Captain Jeff Wild, deputy commander of the Major Case Squad said Boyd and McDavid were acquaintances."It was not random. There's no randomness to this whatsoever. I would just leave it that it was a confrontation that led to the untimely death of our victim."

Police aren't sharing many details about the murder, but court records indicate that Boyd was stabbed. McDavid's bail has been set at five-million dollars.

Swansea Police Chief Mike Arnold says this was the first homicide in the metro-east community since 2006.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The Illinois House has approved a measure that would prohibit using cell phones while driving.

The 64-46 vote Friday moves the bill to the state Senate for consideration. The measure would force drivers to use hands-free devices or use speakerphone features for calls.

Police would be able to stop and ticket drivers holding a cell phone except during emergency situations. Chicago Democrat Rep. John D'Amico (duh-MEE'-koh) says 76 Illinois communities -- including Chicago -- already ban talking on phones and driving.

Opponents say the bill is unfair to individuals with hearing problems and those who cannot afford high-tech phones. D'Amico touted his measure as a public-safety matter.

Texting while driving is already illegal in Illinois.
