Major case squad disbands in Cahokia killing probe

Posted: Updated:

CAHOKIA, Ill. (AP) - A St. Louis-region coalition of investigators has turned over to local police the probe of a woman's shooting death in the southwestern Illinois village of Cahokia.

The Belleville News-Democrat ( reports that the Major Case Squad of Greater St. Louis no longer is involved in the investigation of the June 27 death of 45-year-old Cassandra Holman.

That's because two suspects already are accused in the case but remain at large. Thirty-one-year-old Antrell Teen of Bridgeton, Missouri, and 25-year-old Torrence Neal of St. Louis are charged with first-degree murder and aggravated battery.

Authorities say Holman was shot during a reported invasion of her home and managed to run to a neighbor's house for help. But the mother of two children died two hours later at a hospital in nearby Centreville.
