Baker is also charged with alleged home invasion and alleged assault related to entering the home of neighbors. Baker was fifteen years old in August 2010 but is now sixteen and is being tried as an adult.  He is in custody at the Madison County Juvenile Detention Center with a $2 million bond.


STATE NOT SEEKING DEATH PENALTY IN MAXWELL CASE

Clay Maxwell, age 51, of Hoyleton, was indicted by a Washington County Grand Jury on three counts of alleged first degree murder and a single account of concealment of homicidal death, related to the death of 27 year-old Lauren Castellari of Centralia.  Maxwell pled not guilty to all four charges. Washington County State’s Attorney Julie Kozusek will not seek the death penalty though the Illinois Legislature elimination of the death penalty will not be effective until July 1.  The June trial date has been continued by agreement and is currently set for August 22.  The court is awaiting further information regarding the state pathologist who filed the report on the case. Maxwell is accused of allegedly striking Castellari in the head and concealing her body in a lake in Washington County.

KNIGHT’S MISSING RELATIVES FOUND

We recently reported Guy and Dorothy Knight, of Greenville, were traveling to Joplin, Missouri to reconnect with several relatives who survived the terrible storms and tornado that hit the city May 22.  At the time of that report, the Knights still had two relatives missing. We are pleased to now report that both Virginia Knight and Marsha Knight have been found.  The Knights received a telephone call telling them that the two women are alive. The caller said women would be given contact numbers and were expected to call with more details of what happened. The death toll in Joplin has risen again. The Jasper County Coroner reported another ten people injured in the tornado have died.  The death toll is now 150.
