Funks Grove murder suspects return to court

MCLEAN COUNTY - Two McLean County murder suspects return to court.

Christine Roush and Matthew Isbell are accused of murdering Roush's mother, Theresa Poehlman.  Poehlman's body was found July 2 at the Funks Grove Nature Preserve. 

The court is working to determine if Roush is fit to stand trial. Her hearing was inconclusive and re-set for November 17.

Isbell appeared later this morning, hoping to reduce his bond. The judge reduced his bond from $3 million to $1 million. He has to be under home monitoring and confinement, except for employment, legal and medical reasons. He's back in court in mid-December.
