$16M award to victims' families
MOUNT CARROLL – After being awarded $8 million, Carla Whitebread said there was something she would rather have. "We can't say we're happy," the Mount Carroll mother said in a telephone interview Friday morning. “We'd give everything we have to bring Wyatt back." A jury Thursday awarded $16 million – $8 million each – to two families who lost their teenage sons in a grain bin accident in the summer of 2010.
