SYCAMORE, Ill. (AP) – A DeKalb County grand jury has indicted DeKalb resident William Curl on five counts of first-degree murder in last October’s death of Northern Illinois University student Antinette Keller.

The (DeKalb) Daily Chronicle reports Monday that the grand jury also indicted the 34-year-old Curl on one count apiece of criminal sexual assault, concealing a homicidal death and arson.

Curl has been in the DeKalb County Jail on $5 million bond since he was returned to Illinois after his arrest by U.S. Marshals in Louisiana on Oct 26. Prosecutors didn’t say whether he has an attorney.

Keller was last seen Oct. 14, when left for a walk in a park near the NIU campus. Burned human remains found in the park two days later were identified as Keller’s.
