They sell tents at Wal-Mart. Based on the quality of work they do that would be to good for them.

I am happy for Rome also. Does the law require that all that time and money be spent to look for a new person when he was the man to start with? Just curious. All three were great picks but Rome has a lifetime of experience with this type of thing.

I wish it showed a line item cost for the Gov. Mansion (utilities, security, maintenance, etc.) I doubt that Rauner would live there either. "It would be cheaper to own a Hotel/Motel in Springfield and have the elected officials stay there when in town and the other rooms would help pay for it. The sale of those homes would buy a hotel/motel".

Frankenhoff said it was Frericks' call as to if the job was filled and who would fill it.

Lovelace indicted in death of first wife

2 weeks, 5 days ago by Bob Gough

Cory Lovelace died in 2006; Former Adams Co. Assistant State's Attorney and Quincy School Board member taken into custody Wednesday

An Adams County Grand Jury has issued an Indictment today for Curtis T. Lovelace for the charge of First Degree Murder, with bond set at $5,000,000. 

The charge stems from the 2006 death of his then wife, 38 year old Cory D. Lovelace, who was found dead in their home on February 14, 2006. 

Lovelace, 45, was taken into custody without incident at around 12:15 p.m. Wednesday in the 600 block of Vermont.

After months of investigation, the case was presented to the Grand Jury Wednesday morning resulting in the Indictment. 

Quincy Police Chief Rob Copley said the investigation into Cory Lovelace's death was reopened in 2013 after the department received new information. The previous autopsy and inquest ruled the cause of death was inconclsive. Copley said those results were reviewed by other pathologists who have now determined Cory Lovelace's death was a homicide.

Cory Lovelace's body was cremated following her death. 

Ed Parkinson of the State Appellate Prosecutor’s Service was appointed as special prosecutor in the case.

Adams County State's Attorney Jon Barnard said there were two reasons for requesting the special prosecutor.

"Number one, (Lovelace) is a former employee of this office and, number two, there is a very real possiblity I will be called as a witness in this case," Barnard said. 

Lovelace is a captain in the Illinois National Guard Judge Advocate Corps. He is a former Adams County Assistant State's Attorney and a former member of the Quincy School Board. He is also a former All-Big Ten center on the University of Illinois football team. 

Adams County Sheriff Brent Fischer says Lovelace has been moved to another facility. Fischer said there is not a place to isolate him in the Adams County Jail and with Lovelace being a former prosecutor he did not want him in with the general population.

The Quincy Police Department issued details of the arrest.
