Shadwick R. King is brought into the court by Kane County Sheriff's Deputy Bob Schwer before appearing in front of Judge James C. Hallock in the 16th Judicial Circuit at the Kane County Judicial Center on Wednesday in St. Charles.

ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – The Kane County State's Attorney's Office wants cellphone tower records in connection to the case of a Geneva man accused of killing his wife, according to court records.

Shadwick King, 47, is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the death of his wife Kathleen King. The state alleges that King asphyxiated his wife, Kathleen, on July 6 and placed her body on railroad tracks near their home, according to court records.

Shadwick King today appeared in court before Judge James Hallock in an orange jail uniform. He stood silently next to Brenda Willett of the Kane County Public Defender's Office, who was representing him during the hearing.

Willett said she received the motion for the tower records this morning and did not have time to review it. Assistant State's Attorney Greg Sams disputed that and said the Public Defender's Office received proper notice in a proper timeframe.

The appropriate party in the Public Defender's Office received notice of the motion Monday morning, Sams said today in court.

Hallock decided to continue the hearing on the motion to Thursday.

King remains in the Kane County Jail on a $1.5 million bond, according to online records.
