OLNEY, IL — A 60-year-old Dundas, IL man has been charged in Richland County Court with two counts of murder in connection with the deaths of two women struck by a vehicle at an establishment in Olney. Michael Mattox has been charged after the pickup truck he was driving proceeded through the intersection of North Avenue and West Street just before 8 p.m. on December 26th.

The truck struck and killed 48-year-old DeAnn Richardson and 69-year-old Judy Jourdan, both of Olney. The women were standing on the patio of Deuce’s Wild Saloon.
