MAN ARRESTED IN CONNECTION WITH CAVALETTO'S DEATH

 

A man has been arrested in connection with the death of 38 year-old Rita Cavaletto over the weekend. According to the Illinois State Police, 27 year-old Neil A. Barrall, of Centralia, has been charged with two counts of alleged First-Degree Murder and one count of alleged Capitol Murder. 

 

The body of Rita Cavaletto was found Saturday night, around 5PM, on Copple Road in Marion County. Residents had reportedly last seen her around 9:30AM, that morning, going for a walk. The State Police, due to leads from the public, soon developed a description of a person of interest along with a vehicle description.

 

The alleged suspect, Neil A. Barrall, is currently being held in the Marion County Jail and was to go in front of the judge Wednesday afternoon.


FATAL ACCIDENT IN MADISON COUNTY

 

Two persons were charged in Madison County Circuit Court Tuesday, with alleged felony unlawful delivery of alcoholic liquor to a minor.  Keith A. Lowenstein, age 21, and Matthew L. Inman, age 17, both of Worden, were charged, following an investigation into a fatal traffic accident on October 18th, at approximately 3:05 am.  Christopher J. Dungan, of Edwardsville, died as a result of injuries sustained in the accident.

 

Dungan was alone in a 2000 Dodge Stratus, traveling south on Prarietown Road in Edwardsville.  He lost control of his vehicle and struck a tree.  Alcohol allegedly played a part in the accident. 

 

Investigation showed that Dungan was at a party at Inman's residence, where beer, allegedly purchased by Lowenstein, was available to persons under the age of 21.  Inman provided the location for the party that allowed the underage drinking.  Inman was also charged with alleged obstruction of justice for lying about where the beer came from.  The violation, normally a Class A misdemeanor charge, is a Class 4 felony, due to the resulting death.


PLANNING COMMISSION HOLDS PUBLIC HEARINGS

 

The Greenville Planning Commission met Monday night and held two public hearings, and passed along for City Council consideration two adjustments to local Ordinances. The first adjustment was to the sign ordinance. The change would allow standard sized real estate signs to be placed on the right of way, no closer that 2 feet from the curb or pavement. The second change would allow agricultural use of land in B-1 and B-2 business zoning districts. There are several locations within the City where land has been zoned for business but is still being farmed.

 

The Commission also heard a presentation from Megan Riechmann from the Southwestern Illinois GIS resource center, concerning conservation easements. There are big federal tax breaks, available to developers, for leaving part of their land in new subdivisions undeveloped.

ROUTINE DRUG SEARCH AT MULBERRY GROVE HIGH SCHOOL

 

WGEL spoke with Mulberry Grove High School Principal Mike Gauch, concerning a search, Tuesday morning, about 8:50 am, at the high school.  Mr. Gauch said that the routine K-9 drug search is an annual exercise at Mulberry Grove and was not the result of any information about drugs on the premises. 

 

Six officers from Greenville Police, Bond County and Clinton County Sheriff's Departments, and Mulberry Grove Police were involved in the exercise along with two K-9 search dogs from Greenville Police and the Clinton County Sheriff's Department. 

 

This unannounced, routine drug search proved to be negative, with nothing out of the ordinary being found.  Mr. Gauch said they did not expect to find any drugs and he was very glad that none were found.  Besides being a practice for the law enforcement units, the search also is a message to students to remain drug free.
