Our favorite teacher/wrestler/attempted murderer Samson Shelton is back in the news…
BELLEVILLE, Ill. (AP) A grand jury indicted a former teacher accused of attacking a teenager and leaving her clinging to life in a park.
Samson Shelton, 26, was charged Friday with attempted murder.
Authorities said that Shelton choked 17-year-old Ashley Reeves with a belt and injured her neck with his forearm before leaving her for dead in Belleville’s Citizens Park, where she was found April 29.
Prosecutors said they would pursue an extended sentence, citing the “heinous and brutal” nature of the attack. That means Shelton could receive up to 60 years in prison if convicted.
If he’s found guilty I hope he gets sent to Joliet.
