Man accused of murdering teenager back in court


IROQUOIS COUNTY, Ill. (WCIA) — A man accused of murdering a teenager by strangling her to death was back in court Tuesday. 49-year-old Arthur Jensen is charged with the murder of 17-year-old Adara Bunn. Police say he told them “There’s a girl inside and I strangled her,” when they came to arrest him in August.

Jensen will be back in court on October 21. The State’s Attorney’s Office said there’s a chance the trial date could be set at that hearing.
