EMT Charged With Murder Held In Jail’s Medical Unit

One of the EMTs now facing murder charges in the death of a patient is being held in the medical unit at the Sangamon County Jail.
But Sheriff Jack Campbell says Peter Cadigan does not have any medical issues, and says the move was done for his protection. Campbell says it’s not uncommon to place inmates in high-profile cases in the medical unit until authorities can be sure there’s no threat to them in the general jail population.
Cadigan’s co-defendant, Peggy Finley, is being held in a standard cell in the female inmate block, but Campbell says because few women are currently incarcerated, she is in a cell by herself.
