No official chatter on cold case
Investigators release few details; suspect gets public defender
DIXON – Officials aren't providing details in the case involving an Arkansas man charged in the death of a Peoria man whose badly beaten body was found in a Franklin Grove hog pen in 1983.
Steven A. Watts, 56, of Berryville, was arraigned Thursday in Lee County court.
He is charged with one count of first-degree murder in the death of Gary D. Dawson, 30, whose body was found Aug. 29, 1983. Investigators think he was killed the day before, and Watts was a suspect at the time.
