Sometimes persistence really does pay off.

A woman wanted for a 2009 crime in La Salle has been tracked down in Oklahoma. Police in Hugo, Oklahoma this week arrested 31-year-old Denise Benicke of Hugo on a La Salle County Warrant for aggravated battery of a child. The alleged abuse happened just after Christmas of 2009 in La Salle.

Benicke now awaits a trip back to La Salle County for a day in court. She’s facing a class X felony which means a prison sentence of 6 to 30 years.
