A Stockton man is in custody in connection to the March 28th death of Illinois State Police Trooper Brooke Jones-Story.

ISP officials say 55-year-old Craig Dittmar was driving a truck tractor semi-trailer combination down Route 75 in Stephenson County when he hit Jones-Story’s squad car and the vehicle she was inspecting. 

Since then, law enforcement agencies across the state have been asking dirvers to heed Scott’s Law. 

The law requires drivers to slow down, move over, and change lanes if possible, when they are approaching an emergency vehicle or any vehicle with hazard lights on. 

On Thursday the Stephenson County State’s Attorney’s Office approved charging Dittmar with two counts of Reckless Homicide. 

Bond is set at $250,000.
