Home invasion count tacked on for Tonica man

OTTAWA — One of the suspects charged in connection with an Ottawa break-in, during which a 92-year-old woman was bound to her bed, now is charged with home invasion.

Tuesday, a La Salle County grand jury indicted Britney Dorsam, 23, of Tonica on a new count of home invasion, a Class X felony carrying a mandatory prison sentence of 6-30 years.

Dorsam already was charged with residential burglary for her alleged part in the Aug. 9 break-in in the 1600 block of West Jackson Street in Ottawa. Details still are emerging from that case and from the apparently related shooting that occurred nine days later on the Sandy Ford bridge near Leonore.

The victim, Jeremy Wade, the alleged shooter, Richard Felton, and a third man, Jimmy Members, all are charged for as-yet-unspecified roles in the Aug. 9 break-in.
Dorsam remains held in La Salle County Jail on $150,000 bond.
