UPDATE: (4:07 p.m.) — A Peoria County grand jury has indicted a Peoria woman for first-degree murder in connection with the Aug. 10 stabbing of a woman at a gas station.
The move means that Cathy A. Logan, 53, will not appear in bonding court nor will she have a preliminary hearing as prosecutors opted to present her case directly to a grand jury.
She was booked into the Peoria County Jail on Monday which meant that she would have had to appear in court by Wednesday. However, with Peoria County normally having grand jury proceedings on Tuesday, it appears prosecutors opted to go that route.
She’s being held on $1 million bond and if convicted, faces up to 60 years in prison.
UPDATE: (3:30 p.m.) — Peoria police released some details regarding the arrest Monday of a woman accused in a fatal stabbing.
WMBD previously reported that Cathy A. “Tweety Bird” Logan was arrested Monday but Peoria police did not comment until late Tuesday in a news release.
In that release, the department said officers learned Logan was staying at a house in the 900 block of South Warren Street and took her into custody on Monday.
Logan did not appear in Peoria County Circuit Court on Monday to be formally charged so it’s likely she will be there on Wednesday as prosecutors must charge someone within 48 hours of being taken into custody with a few exceptions.
PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — A woman who is accused of stabbing a woman to death in South Peoria last month has been taken into custody.
Almost immediately, Cathy A. Logan, 53, also known as “Tweety Bird” or “Tweet,” was identified as a suspect in the Aug. 10 death of Tanazisha Green, who was found at a South Peoria gas station in the 1000 block of South Western Avenue shortly after 9 p.m.
Logan was booked into the Peoria County Jail on Monday afternoon. Charges were first-degree murder and two warrants for failing to appear in court on two separate felony cases from Tazewell County.
Green was stabbed once in the chest, officials have said. She was initially conscious when rescue workers arrived. Her condition worsened at OSF Healthcare Saint Francis Medical Center about 40 minutes later.
