Former Sparland clerk denies role in cyberstalking case

LACON, Ill. (AP) – The former village clerk of Sparland denies impersonating another woman online in a stalking case. Margaret Murry pled not guilty yesterday to two counts of cyberstalking in Marshall County Circuit Court.

The 55-year-old was indicted in March on charges she pretended to be another woman online in a way that led two men to go to the victim’s home “for purposes of a sexual relationship.” The indictment says that while the victim wasn’t harmed, Murry’s suspected actions placed the victim in harm’s way.

Murry resigned as village clerk in September 2012. Her next court appearance is July 22.
