Autopsy: Dwight Mother, Daughter Shot to Death

DWIGHT, Ill. (AP) — Police in the central Illinois town of Dwight say an autopsy shows that a mother and daughter killed in a home over the weekend were shot to death.

The Bloomington Pantagraph reports that 60-year-old Donna Denker and 30-year-old Kelli Denker were killed on Saturday. A man also was shot and is recovering, but police have not released his name.

Police say they were called to the home around 4:30 a.m. Saturday after receiving a call from a man who said he’d been shot.

Authorities have said little publicly about the investigation, but say several agencies are working on the case.

Donna Denker was a retired mental health technician, and Kelli Denker was a manager at the Dwight Dairy Queen.

Neighbor Laura Haacke describes the women as “good people.”
