EDWARDSVILLE, Ill.—A southwestern Illinois man is jailed after being accused of threatening to kill a Madison County sheriff’s deputy.

The (Alton) Telegraph reports that prosecutors have charged 36-year-old Kevin Beasley of South Roxana with threatening a public official, a felony. He’s also faces a misdemeanor disorderly conduct count.

Sheriff’s officials say Beasley was arrested before dawn Saturday after deputies responded to a report of a yelling man knocking on various East Alton doors.

Investigators say Beasley told one a deputy that he’d find his home and kill him there.

Beasley still was jailed Tuesday on $75,000 bond.

His telephone number has been disconnected, and online court records don’t show whether he has an attorney.
