Maquon woman pleads not guilty to concealment of death charge

Marcy Oglesby appeared in court on Tuesday to have her bond reduced, however, it was increased to $100,000 due to the filing of more charges against her.

MAQUON, Ill. — The Maquon woman accused of concealing a person's death is facing additional charges related to the discovery of the decomposing body in a storage unit last month

Marcy Oglesby, 50, is pleading not guilty to the charges, according to Knox County State's Attorney Jeremy Karlin. 

In an email to News 8, Karlin said Oglesby's bond was increased to $100,000 due to additional charges related to the incident, including forgery and possession of a firearm without a FOID card. Her original bond had been set at $10,000. 

Online court records show Oglesby also waived her right to a preliminary hearing. A pretrial conference is set for Dec. 5. 

Meanwhile, an update on the identity of the body is still forthcoming. Back on Oct. 10, police told News 8 it could take a while to identify the individual due to the decomposition state it was in when found.
