From 2015 to 2016, murder and non-negligent manslaughter rates in the United States went up 8.4%, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Here is a look at the cities with the highest murder rates in the country.

BLOOMINGTON — Bond remained set Monday for the Normal man accused of stabbing a man to death early Friday morning in Bloomington.

Larry E. Knell, 44, is charged with first-degree murder for killing Dale E. Baughman, 59, of Normal.

His bond was set at $2 million with 10% to apply, meaning he would need to pay $200,000 plus a bond fee to be released.
