MURBARGER BACK IN COURT

25 year old Brody Murbarger of Evansville was back in court Monday. The former Fairfield resident was charged with 3 counts of First Degree Murder, 2 Class X Illinois Felony counts of Home Invasion to Commit a Sexual Offense and Class 3 Illinois Felony Concealment of a Homicidal Death. Those offenses were filed against him late last year after his indictment by a Wayne County grand jury in connection with the death of Megan Nichols of Fairfield. She disappeared in 2014 and her remains were found in a rural area of the county in a shallow grave in 2017. The Monday pretrial hearing was held virtually via Zoom with another scheduled for Monday January 25th. The defense indicated that it will bring several motions at that time including another seeking bond reduction.
