OGLE COUNTY, Ill. (WIFR) - An Ogle County judge set Marc Mongan's trial date for February 14th of next year.
Mongan faces seven felony charges in the death of 31-year-old Megan Wells. Motions introduced in court focus only on those felony charges which include reckless homicide and aggravated driving under the influence. The motion also calls to drop misdemeanor charges.
Wells' family says they feel one step closer to finding justice for Megan.
"We're getting to the point where we wanted at the very beginning and had been asking for from the very beginning from day one. We do have those felony charges and we'll present the evidence and let a jury of his peers decide. The truth will prevail," says Wells' father David Swaziek.
A hearing has been scheduled for December 9th to discuss final motions before the trial begins. Mongan's attorney was unavailable for comment.
