Man charged after woman was shot dead in Greenville, Illinois

BOND COUNTY, Ill. – Monday, a man was charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of a 37-year-old woman in Greenville, Illinois.

The suspect, Demarcus Gurlly, 28, was also charged with obstruction of justice.

On February 10, Illinois State Police went to the 600 block of Southeast Street and found a woman dead following a reported shooting. Bond County coroner identified her as Laquita Sullivan.

Police said a 33-year-old man believed to be in the area when the fatal shooting occurred entered a home in the 500 block of Zhengdong Street. Officers detained him at around 1 a.m. on February 11 and later released him. That man has not been charged.

Hours later, at about 4:50 p.m., the Greenville Police Department detained Gurlly for questioning. The Bond County State Attorney’s Office filed charges against him on Monday. He is being held on a $1 million bond.

Illinois State Police initially suspected a red Dodge Challenger that crashed in Madison, Illinois, in connection with the shooting.

However, the Challenger was involved in a separate murder a block away from Southeast Street. A Greenville man in that vehicle died from his injuries, while another man from Anna, Illinois, was treated at the hospital. Man charged after woman was shot dead in Greenville, Illinois
