Illinois man charged with murder after home invasion

One of the most important qualities in life is the perception of safety. People want to know that they are safe when they are sitting in their own home or walking down the street. Unfortunately, this isn't always the case, and houses are sometimes robbed. A homeowner's safety is especially compromised if they happen to be in the home when the attempted robbery occurs. One Illinois man has recently lost his life when he was allegedly shot by another man, now charged with murder, during a home invasion.

Car accidents can, unfortunately, happen at any time of day. However, many people automatically assume that an accident that happens at night or during the early morning hours is always the result of a drunk driver.

Illinois man preparing DUI defense after fatal accident

Modern day media is a wonderful tool; the general public has the option of being well-informed of fast breaking issues thanks to the speed and technology employed by the media. Unfortunately, it also has its downside. For example, the media often reports on alleged crimes even though only the police's version of events is available. Often, hearing both sides of an incident can paint the situation in a completely different light. This may be the case for an Illinois man who will likely be mounting a DUI defense after a fatal accident.
