Man pleads guilty in 2014 Freeport shooting death

The man charged in the 2014 shooting death of a Freeport mother has pleaded guilty.

Female inmates are no longer housed at the Lee County Jail in Dixon after an inspection of the jail found that it cannot meet the proper separation requirements between male and female inmates.
