The Belleville News-Democrat reports that 42-year-old Torcus Boone Sr. was arrested Tuesday in Richmond County. He’s jailed there on $9 million bond, pending his extradition to Illinois.

Prosecutors in St. Clair County have charged Boone and 36-year-old Dameon Floore with first-degree murder in the Sept. 1 killing of 20-year-old Kenneth Richards outside Denese’s Place.

Move Him Out!!!!!

They better hurry up and get him out of Augusta before one of the bleeding heart local judges decides he should be freed pending extradition! There is no telling about justice in Richmond County with some of these judges!
