On Deck - Wednesday, April 13, 2022
WCBU's On Deck has everything you need to know to start your day for Wednesday, April 13. Our top story is about Peoria County State’s Attorney Jodi Hoos seeking harsh punishments for the parents of 8-year-old Navin Jones. You’ll also hear about a new bill that will send mental health professionals out with Peoria police on some 911 calls. WCBU Statehouse Reporter Maggie Strahan speaks with the bill's sponsor, Rep.
