Grant Muren, the 24-year-old who was found guilty of second-degree murder for killing his Naperville roommate, Charles Clark, back in 2014, was sentenced to 20 years in prison. A DuPage County Judge cited that Muren had accepted no accountability for his crime. Because of time already served in jail and sentencing guidelines, Muren could be eligible for parole in about nine years.
Rain to Blame
Tuesday night’s heavy rains are to blame for diesel fuel that washed from Edward Hospital’s parking lot into the retention pond there and then flowed into the DuPage River. A hazardous materials team from the Naperville Fire Department responded to install skimmers to help catch the substance. It’s not known what amount of fuel ended up in the water or what affect it could have.
Members of the Naperville Police Department are taking the plunge this weekend. NPD staff members will head to the waters of Loon Lake in Yorkville’s Silver Springs Park this Sunday for the Polar Plunge to raise money for Illinois Special Olympics. You can donate to Naperville’s Fraternal Order of Police Polar Plunge Team on their website.
