Arthur Jensen, 49, Sheldon, has been charged with homicide, first degree murder, after Iroquois County Sheriff’s Police were dispatched to 315 W. Main, Sheldon, on Monday at 4:13 p.m. for a report of a disturbance.

One deputy arrived at the scene and investigated, talking to several other residents. Sheldon Police arrived on the scene and contact was made with Jensen who was taken into custody at that time.

A deceased white female, 17, was located inside the residence shortly thereafter.

An autopsy was performed Tuesday morning in Kankakee County and preliminary results show that the young female died of ligature strangulation. Other tests will be performed.

Jensen appeared before Judge James Kinzer in an Iroquois County courtroom Tuesday afternoon where his bond was set at $1,000,000 and a public defender was appointed.

Jensen’s next appearance will be Thursday at 1:30.
