The 39-year-old Springfield man accused of killing McHenry County Sheriff's Deputy Jacob Keltner pleaded not guilty in federal court in Rockford Wednesday morning. 

A federal grand jury indicted Floyd E. Brown Tuesday for Keltner's death earlier this month. Keltner was working as a member of a U.S. Marshals Service task force when he was shot and killed while trying to serve a warrant at a Rockford hotel.

The man accused of the murder of a McHenry County Deputy Sheriff in Rockford Thursday will be returned to Winnebago County to face charges.

Floyd E. Brown, 39, is charged with first degree murder for the shooting death of Deputy Jacob Keltner, who died Thursday afternoon in a Rockford hospital. Keltner was working with a fugitive task force from the U.S. Marshals office as they tried to serve a warrant on Brown, a Springfield resident who was staying at the Extended Stay America hotel on Rockford’s east side.

Authorities say a Peoria police officer fatally shot a 19-year-old man who fled from a vehicle after a traffic stop in the central Illinois city.

 

The Peoria County coroner says Luis Cruz was pronounced dead early Thursday at a hospital soon after the shooting.

City police spokeswoman Amy Dotson says officers stopped the vehicle as they searched for a wanted suspect. Dotson says an armed person ran away and was shot by an officer, but didn't say whether any other shots were fired. No officers were injured in the confrontation.
