Man charged in McGruder murder now in Knox County Jail

The man charged in the Easter Sunday murder of a Galesburg woman was extradited back to Knox County.

Jonathan Kelly was arrested in Sioux Falls, S.D last month on suspicion of the murder of Jenni McGruder outside the Seminary Street Pub in Galesburg. On Friday, June 29, he was transferred back to Knox County, where he will remain in custody pending further court proceedings. 

The 26-year-old mother of two was leaving a birthday party when she was struck by a stray bullet allegedly fired by Kelly.
