Jury Selection Begins In Lawrence County Murder Trial

by

Jury selection began yesterday for the trial of an Illinois teen. 

 Tyler McQueen is accused of taking part in a murder-for-hire scheme in Lawrence County and killing 78-year-old Robert Westall.  

McQueen will face three murder charges when his trial begins later this week.

g:0px'>The bill requires the district superintendent have a master's degree, a change from the current state requirements that superintendents have a teaching license and complete graduate school work in education administration. Supporters say the change would give the state's nearly 300 local school boards more flexibility to hire a business leader or someone else they believe would best fill their needs. 

Opponents worry that the state would be lowering standards by allowing superintendents without any classroom experience and that an effective school superintendent needed to understand what teachers face in their classrooms.

The bill now goes to Republican Gov. Mike Pence for consideration.
