National Briefing / Illinois

'Death day' was on his calendar

March 10, 2009|Times Wire Reports

The man charged with gunning down a Maryville pastor and stabbing two churchgoers had marked Sunday as "death day" in a planner and carried enough ammunition to kill 30 people, a prosecutor said.

Madison County State's Atty. William A. Mudge said he had no details on the reference in alleged gunman Terry J. Sedlacek's day planner, which was found in his home -- only that it singled out Sunday as "death day."

Sedlacek, 27, of Troy, Ill., was charged with first-degree murder and aggravated battery in the attack at First Baptist Church that killed the Rev. Fred Winters and left Sedlacek and two congregants who tackled him with stab wounds.
