SYCAMORE, Ill. (AP) -- Prosecutors and defense attorneys have reached an agreement that will allow some of the remains of a slain Northern Illinois University to be released for a memorial service.
The Daily Chronicle newspaper in DeKalb reports the agreement was announced during a Friday hearing at the DeKalb County Courthouse in Sycamore. It comes after prosecutors filed a motion last month requesting the coroner release some remains of Antinette "Toni" Keller.
The 18-year-old Keller was last seen Oct. 14, when she left for a walk near the NIU campus. Burned human remains found two days later were identified Jan. 6 as Keller's.
Thirty-four year-old William Curl of DeKalb has pleaded not guilty to murder charges in Keller's death. He is jailed on $5 million bond.
