The man accused of fatally shooting a minister at an Illinois church noted that date in his planner book as "day of death" or "death day," a prosecutor said.
Terry J. Sedlacek is charged with with first-degree murder in the slaying of the Rev. Fred Winters as Winters was holding a Sunday service at First Baptist Church in Maryville.
Sedlacek, who was seriously wounded himself in the ensuing melee, also has been charged with two counts of aggravated battery in connection with the stabbing of two church members.
