Troopers arrested an Illinois murder suspect in Saline County over the weekend. Rita Newell, 84, was found dead inside her home last Thursday. Grandson Timothy Newell, 43, has not been charged with her death. He was taken in on the felony count of possession of a stolen or converted vehicle.
Newell is being held in the Saline County Jail, and will be extradited to southern Illinois this week.
