Murder Indictment In Amboy

Posted by wlpo on August 7, 2012

A man from Amboy has been indicted for murder.

A Lee County Grand Jury yesterday indicted 32-year old Matthew Welling on five counts of first-degree murder and two counts of home invasion.  The indictment claims Welling hit 79-year old Delmar Leroy Daniels in the head which he knew would cause death.  Daniels was found beaten to death in his Amboy house on July 18th.

Investigators claim Welling admitted going to Daniels house after drinking.  They allegedly found Welling’s necklace, shirt and flip-flops next to Daniels’ body.

So far police haven’t found a link between Welling and Daniels.

Welling is in the Lee County Jail on two million dollars bond.  His next court date is Thursday.
