U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley says he thinks the reports Wednesday that the Trump administration was considering leaving the North American Free Trade Agreement was a negotiating tactic and that the pact has been good for agriculture.

Grassley, R-Iowa, spoke with reporters from the Quad-Cities on Thursday after meeting with a delegation to Washington, D.C., led by the Quad-Cities Chamber of Commerce. The delegation is in Washington this week for its annual meeting with area lawmakers and executive branch agencies.

Grassley, who has long been a champion of free trade, said there were two options floating Wednesday \u2014\u00a0renegotiation or withdrawal.

\"I think the withdrawal one is posturing,\" he said.

President Donald Trump has long complained that NAFTA was a bad deal for the United States. And late Wednesday, there were reports that the Trump administration was preparing an executive order to withdraw from NAFTA.

Later, the president tweeted that he would renegotiate with Mexico and Canada instead.

Trade is an important part of the Quad-Cities economy, and Grassley said it has been good for Iowa agriculture.

On Thursday, the president told reporters he would seek to renegotiate, but he left open the option of terminating the pact if negotiations are not successful.

The Iowa Department of Transportation said this week it received 16 bids for various elements of a new Interstate 74 bridge and a pair of affiliated projects.

An official said, however, it will likely be at least another couple weeks before final awards are made.

The DOT gave contractors until Tuesday to submit proposals. Although some of the 16 bids overlap, the response appears to have been a robust one. Ten different companies or joint ventures submitted 16 bids on four different packages.

Sam Shea, a district transportation planner in the DOT's Cedar Rapids office, said Wednesday the agency is pleased, although it is still in the process of ensuring that the bidders were responsive to the solicitations and that they meet state's requirements to take on the project.

\"We saw plenty of interest,\" Shea said.

Prior to the bidding, the DOT said it had estimated the cost of the contracts to be awarded at between $400 million and $450 million, and it looks as if the bids mostly came in under that.

The DOT allowed contractors to bid as a combined package on the part of the bridge going over Mississippi River channel as well a separate span that will lead from the water's edge and connect to the central span. Bids also were accepted for those as separate projects.

For the combined package, the bids ranged from between $322.1 million and $416.2 million. The lowest bid was from Lunda Construction Co. of Black River Falls, Wisconsin. The second lowest bid was at $357.8 million.

Two joint ventures bid the projects separately, and those came in at $393.6 million and $416.5 million between them. A separate joint venture bid on one of the projects, but not the other.

Separately, there were six bids on the viaduct over downtown Bettendorf and off-ramp leading to U.S. 67 there. Bids for that package were sought separately from the others. Those bids ranged from $30.1 million to $37.9 million.

The lowest bidder in this case was Civil Constructors Inc. of Freeport, Illinois.

The Iowa DOT's review process can take as long as 30 days, although it usually makes an award before that.

In this case, however, the size of the project may lead to a longer time frame, with the Federal Highway Administration's Iowa and Washington, D.C., offices both weighing in, Shea said.

\"It looks like we are probably at least two weeks away, perhaps a little more,\" he said.

In Illinois, a contract is expected to be awarded in June for work from the river to 7th Avenue in Moline, which will include the viaduct over downtown and street improvements to accommodate the interchanges. That's estimated at $120 million. Then, likely in September, contracts will be awarded for work on the interstate from 7th Avenue to just south of Avenue of the Cities, as well as street improvements, including reconstruction of 19th Street. That work has been estimated at $128 million.

Construction on the I-74 bridge is expected to get underway yet this summer with work on the foundations in the Mississippi River. The span itself is expected to be built in 2019 and 2020, and the existing bridge is scheduled to be torn down in 2021.

Phil Axtell is getting the chance he earned.

The Quad-City Mallards announced Thursday Axtell will be the head coach next season, moving quickly to keep the man they promoted in January to replace Terry Ruskowski.

It wasn't necessarily a no-doubt decision, not with names like Reading's Larry Courville and Alaska's Rob Murray on the coaching market. But by announcing the decision less than a week after the Mallards were eliminated from the playoffs, the Mallards made it clear they feel Axtell is the right man for the job, and eliminated any speculation or uncertainty.

Keeping Axtell was the right move, the latest from a team that is showing the willingness to try and bring a championship back to the Quad-Cities.

Firing Terry Ruskowski in January and putting a rookie Axtell in his place was a make-or-break decision. Ruskowski's resume could have made team owner Jordan Melville and team president Bob McNamara hesitant to make the switch and instead stay with the veteran for the rest of the season.

Giving the job to Axtell was a risk. McNamara said he felt the roster was good enough to contend, and if instead the team missed the playoffs, the organization would be forced to try and find another option at coach, perhaps resetting the timeline on when a championship could be realistically possible.

Instead, Axtell thrived. The team went 21-12-2 and went on an eight-game winning streak under his guidance. The Mallards scored over half-a-goal per game more than under Ruskowski, and played tight with the Fort Wayne Komets in the first round of the playoffs. Players responded to his coaching style and attitude, and the difference on the ice was obvious.

When the Mallards announced the decision to promote Axtell in January, McNamara mentioned how the team was no longer content with making the playoffs and losing in the first round, something that happened three of the four seasons under Ruskowski. Though the Mallards again exited early, they were competitive in the series with the Komets, taking two of the five games to overtime and keeping all but one of the games to a one-goal spread.

Now, there's a positive feeling entering the offseason. There's a feeling that this year's team \u2014\u00a0while good \u2014\u00a0may have been one year early from truly competing for a championship. There's a feeling that if Axtell gets the core of this team to return, while shoring up a few areas, that the Mallards might be the ones moving on next year instead of Fort Wayne.

There is still plenty of growth that needs to come from Axtell, and that's not unexpected. He was placed in a very tough situation, and he made the most of it, but he still is essentially a rookie head coach, with lots to learn and improve on. Every coach has to start somewhere, and what he accomplished in a half-season with the Mallards was a very good start to his head coaching career.

Now, he has to deal with things like trying to get players to return, something that Ruskowski struggled with, as well as recruiting players in the offseason to join the team. Ruskowski had a very good base of scouts and agents to draw on, but Axtell was also pivotal in landing several players from this year's team. He has a good eye for talent, and also has several connections, especially at the junior level. This includes Cedar Rapids coach Mark Carlson, whose RoughRiders team has been something of a pipeline for the Mallards recently.

He'll also have McNamara, who will retain his role as general manager and Jon Piche, director of hockey operations, there to help with this aspect, and those two will be valuable as Axtell settles into the role.

Axtell will have to deal with the stresses of the offseason and of coaching the entire season, not just half of it. And he'll also have to deal with the extra things like community involvement and media relations that Ruskowski's experience allowed him to treat as if second nature.

But Axtell impressed in just half a season, and the amount of growth from Jan. 20 to today was noticeable. It will be fun to see just how much more he grows next season, and the Mallards could continue to grow with him.

Brandt Construction Co.'s last ditch effort to win the Rockingham Road reconstruction project has failed.

The Davenport City Council has approved awarding the contract to Langman Construction and denied the appeal of Brandt after its bid for the project was disqualified.

Rock Island-based Langman Construction's bid of $2.44 million was almost $200,000 more than the bid of Brandt, but Finance Director Brandon Wright deemed that Brandt was not a responsible and reliable bidder.

Attorney Greg Jager, from the Pastrnak Law Firm, represented Brandt through the appeal process. City Administrator Corri Spiegel previously denied Brandt's appeal.

The city gave Brandt the opportunity to appeal to the City Council, which Jager did at the council's Wednesday meeting.

Jager's defense centered on questions of whether the city followed its own purchasing guidelines, and he attempted, with the help of project manager Kevin Smiley, to explain delays with Brandt's completion of a project on Jersey Ridge Road.

In the report card for the Jersey Ridge project provided to Brandt, Jager said that it received a satisfactory score for both timeliness and the overall project and that there was nothing written in city code that indicated one factor could be used to disqualify a bidder.

\"Over the past decade, Brandt has performed $24 million worth of work in the city,\" Jager said. \"There haven't been any complaints given to Brandt, report cards given to Brandt until he was the apparent low bidder on the Rockingham Road project.\"

Summing up, Jager said that there was not enough evidence to support Wright's decision to disqualify Brandt from the Rockingham Road project.

Doug House, construction analyst for the Indiana, Illinois and Iowa Foundation for Fair Contracting, supported the city's decision to disqualify Brandt, citing the lack of timeliness, safety violations and various disputes at Brandt.

House said his organization provided documents to the city about an East River Drive project, which also experienced significant delays and created additional work for staff.

Kathy Jones, one of the workers currently on strike at Brandt, chastised the company for its working conditions and labor practices.

\"Brandt Construction is capable of making the right decisions when it comes to its workers, but they have decided not to,\" Jones said. \"It's sad that employees are the ones suffering when it comes to their decisions to do the right thing.\"

Taking into account the current labor dispute and past problems with Brandt, Alderwoman Maria Dickmann, 2nd Ward, and the other members of the City Council voiced support for staff's recommendation.

\"Considering Mr. Brandt has about a dozen striking employees that he has continued to refuse to meet with, I can't see how on earth they would be able to complete this project in a timely manner,\" Dickmann said. \"This level of construction is going to need the utmost attention, and we do not want our friends down on the west end experiencing any more delays than is absolutely necessary.\"

Terrence Brandt disputed Dickmann's figures and said only three employees were on strike.

\"We don't actually have a contract so theoretically they're on strike,\" Brandt said. \"There is no bargaining unit whatsoever. We're an open shop company.\"

Dickmann fired back that whether or not they were fired to lower the number, they were still considered on strike.

\"They won their National Labor Relations Board complaint, so I just don't think it's their opinion,\" Dickmann said.

The Quad-Cities' unemployment rate fell in March to its lowest level for that month since 2008 as a continued decline in the size of the labor force drove some of the decrease, a labor analyst said Thursday.

The Illinois Department of Employment Security, or IDES, reported that unemployment in the four-county Quad-City metropolitan statistical area was 4.8 percent in March. That was down 1.2 percent from the 6.0 percent reported a year ago. In February, unemployment was at 5.3 percent.

\"We're still experiencing a decline in the overall labor force, which is related back to some of the things we have seen happening in the area \u2014 such as declines in the manufacturing sector,\" said Tom Austin of IDES.

The local manufacturing sector lost 800 jobs over the year and now employs 22,400 Quad-Citians. But the sector gained 200 jobs between February and March, according to IDES statistics.

\"One of your largest industries is manufacturing. With declines continuing over a long time, people have had to look at what their other options are,'' he said.

In addition to a decline in the total labor force, the Quad-Cities saw a decline in the number of people unemployed and an increase in the number employed, he said.

The number of Quad-Citians unemployed declined 21 percent in March to 9,108 versus 11,503 a year ago and 10,075 in February. The statistics also show a total of 180,855 were employed, which compared to 179,813 a year ago and 179,142 in February.

The labor force declined by 1,353 people, or less than 1 percent, to 189,963 in March from 191,316 a year ago. In February, it totaled 189,217.

The labor force decline could be due to fewer people still looking for work, retirements, and others returning to school or waiting for other opportunities. \"Manufacturing typically has older workers in it. So they might be in a situation where they can retire,\" Austin added.

The other sectors posting declines were wholesale trade, transportation-warehousing-utilities and other services, which each lost 100 jobs over the year.

\"Overall, you're ahead,\" he said.

The area's non-farm jobs grew by 800 from 180,700 a year ago to 181,500 in March. The strongest gains were in educational-health services (+900); professional-business services (+400); financial activities and government (+300 each).

The last time the March rate was equal or lower was in 2008 when it was 4.8 percent.

The unemployment rate identifies people in Rock Island, Mercer and Henry counties in Illinois and Scott County in Iowa who are out of work and seeking employment.

Iowa Sen. Rob Hogg of Cedar Rapids, the Democratic leader in the Senate, joined a handful of Quad-City area Democratic legislators in Davenport on Thursday for a post-mortem on the 2017 session, which Hogg called \"brutal\" for working families.

The Republican-controlled Legislature adjourned last weekend after making sweeping changes on several fronts, including reductions in collective bargaining rights for most public employees, a voter identification law and a host of other changes.

Democrats still have to wait another 19 months before they'll get a chance to compete with Republicans at the polls. But asked what they expected were major issues to come in the 2018 session, Hogg said water quality and income taxes will be big topics. He also raised the idea Republicans, much like they did with collective bargaining, could seek to make changes swiftly to Iowa Public Employees' Retirement System, or IPERS.

\"We will be defending IPERS,\" he said.

Both Gov. Terry Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds have said a task force will review the future of IPERS. Reynolds also has raised the prospect of shifting to a 401k-like system, while protecting retirees and employees who are relying on the current system.

Locally, Hogg blamed Republicans for failing to get a bill passed addressing per-pupil inequities in Iowa's school funding formula. The Senate passed legislation, 47-0, to eliminate the inequity over 10 years, as well as imbalances in transportation funding. Its first year cost was $14 million. Currently, some school districts, including Davenport, can't spend as much as some others.

The legislation failed to get a vote in the House, with officials there blaming new revenue projections that prompted the state to make mid-year budget cuts for fiscal 2017, as well adjustments for 2018.

Hogg, however, said Republicans devoted money to such things as targeting Planned Parenthood, so there were funds that could have gone to the legislation.

State Rep. Ross Paustian, R-Walcott, rejected Hogg's criticism, saying that when Democrats controlled the Senate, they didn't move on the inequity issue.

\"That's just plain politics,\" he said.

A Davenport man has been charged in federal court after police and prosecutors say he sold heroin to a confidential informant in December and January.

Prosecutors on Thursday unsealed a one-count complaint for distribution of heroin against Larry Lazzle Bolden, 48, in U.S. District Court, Davenport. A preliminary hearing and a detention hearing is scheduled for Tuesday.\u00a0

According to the criminal complaint, Bolden sold a substance suspected to be heroin to the informant three times and facilitated a fourth sale between December and January in Davenport.

The suspected heroin was tested at the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Criminalistics Laboratory on Jan. 31 and Feb. 3, according to the complaint.

The lab determined that one of the substances tested positive for heroin and fentanyl and another substance tested positive for acrylfentanyl, according to the complaint.

Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid pain medication that is said to be up to 100 times more potent than morphine.

The other substances submitted to the lab tested positive for heroin, according to the complaint.

Bolden was arrested in February and initially charged in Scott County District Court with two counts of controlled substance violation. The charges were dismissed Thursday when the federal case was unsealed.

He has multiple felony convictions for unlawful possession of a controlled substance, aggravated battery and forgery in Rock Island County.

In August, Bolden was charged in Rock Island County with obstruction of justice. He posted 10 percent of a $2,000 bond and remained out of custody until his arrest in the Scott County case.

In March 2002, he was sentenced\u00a0in U.S. District Court, Rock Island, to more than 13 years in federal prison on charges of conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine and possession with intent to distribute crack cocaine. The sentence was reduced to more than 10 years in 2006, according to court records.

He was released in 2011 and was ordered to serve 10 years of supervised release. In August 2013, he was sentenced to almost 21 months in prison for violating the terms of his supervised release.

Bolden was released from custody in November 2014, according to Bureau of Prisons online records.

Three Quad-Cities communities have been recognized for their new investments along the Mississippi River in 2016 by Site Selection magazine. The economic development magazine annually ranks metropolitan and micropolitan areas by number of projects per capita and by number of total projects.

Awards are based on growth in the industries of manufacturing, call centers, headquarters, data centers, distribution warehouse, office, and research and development, according to a news release from the Quad-Cities Chamber.

The Davenport-Moline-Rock Island metro ranked sixth in total projects with 19, Muscatine ranked fourth in projects per capita (42,903) with three and Clinton ranked seventh in projects per capita (48,051) also with three.

Companies in the six-county region of Scott, Clinton and Muscatine in Iowa, and Rock Island, Mercer and Henry in Illinois, invested $247.92 million and created 186 new jobs in 2016.

CHICAGO (AP) \u2014 Immigrant groups and their allies have joined forces to carry out marches, rallies and protests in cities nationwide next week to mark May Day, saying there's renewed momentum to fight back against Trump administration policies.

Activists in major cities including New York, Chicago and Los Angeles expect tens of thousands of people to participate in Monday demonstrations, starting with morning neighborhood protests and culminating in rush hour events downtown. Activists also plan an overnight vigil in Phoenix, a farm workers demonstration outside Miami and a White House rally. In Seattle, pro-immigrant events are expected to give way to rowdier, anti-capitalist marches led by protesters who said they plan to shut down a major freeway through the city.

\"We're seeing an unprecedented amount of enthusiasm and activity,\" said New York Immigration Coalition executive director Steven Choi. \"It's driven by the fact that Trump administration has made immigration the tip of the spear.\"

Around the world, union members have traditionally marched on May 1 for workers' rights. In the United States, the event became a rallying point for immigrants in 2006 when more than 1 million people marched against a proposed immigration enforcement bill.

While the current climate surrounding immigration may be similar to 2006 amid President Donald Trump's hard-line approach to the issue, the immigrant rights movement has changed dramatically since then.

Advocacy groups that in 2006 were united in their determination to flood the streets to make a statement have fractured since then and pursued other efforts, such as voter registration, lobbying and fighting deportations.

However, activists expect a surge in participation this year, in part because immigrant rights groups have worked with Women's March participants, Black Lives Matter and Muslim civil rights groups who are united by their opposition to Donald Trump. Also, businesses with immigrant ties are closing or allowing employees to take the day off without penalty.

Immigrant groups acknowledged there is some fear among people in the country illegally who are skittish about drawing attention to themselves in visible marches. But organizers are reminding them that it's an important cause and there's safety in numbers.

\"If you are an immigrant in Los Angeles, the safest place you can be on Monday is in the action in downtown Los Angeles,\" said David Huerta, president of SEIU United Service Workers West.

As Trump approaches his first 100 days, he has aggressively pursued immigration enforcement, including executive orders for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and a ban on travelers from six predominantly-Muslim countries. The government has arrested thousands of immigrants in the country illegally and threatened to withhold funding from sanctuary jurisdictions, which limit cooperation between local and federal immigration authorities.

In response, leaders in sanctuary cities have vowed to fight back and civic participation has seen a boost, including February's \"Day Without Immigrants.\" The travel ban and sanctuary order were temporarily halted by legal challenges.

\"We will not be divided,\" Pastor Don Taylor of an interfaith organizing group told Chicago supporters preparing this week for May 1. \"It is a moral issue.\"

Still, while there is opposition to Trump, activists aren't focused on a single course of action.

In Illinois, they're pushing legislative plans to essentially extend sanctuary protections statewide. Outside Miami, advocates are calling for an extension of temporary protected status for Haitians displaced by a deadly 2010 earthquake. In Detroit, the push is for immigrants' constitutional rights, including due process.

In Los Angeles, organizers expect as many as 100,000. New York could see up to 50,000 participants. Chicago organizers estimate at least 20,000. In Pennsylvania, student groups are calling for strikes to demand a safe place for immigrants on campus, while in Las Vegas culinary workers will take to the casino-lined strip to show support.

In the Chicago area, dozens of restaurants and grocery stores planned to either close or allow workers to attend the demonstrations. In Portland, Oregon, unions, immigrants and others are urging people to skip work, school and shopping to highlight the importance of workers and the community's strength.

Elsewhere, union leaders have asked employers to let workers participate. Google, for one, asked managers to be flexible in accommodating requests for time-off so employees can join marches.

Adonis Flores, an organizer with Michigan United, plans to participate for the first time on what's long been known as International Workers Day.

The 28-year-old was brought to the country as a young child from Mexico and doesn't have legal permission to stay. For four years, he's received a work permit through an Obama administration program for young people, and doubts Trump's assurances that his administration won't target people like him for deportation.

\"I don't believe anything he says and don't believe anybody should,\" he said. \"It's getting to a point where the community is being tired and ready to take action.\"

CHICAGO (AP) \u2014 A federal judge in Chicago is scheduled to sentence the former head of the nation's third-largest school district for steering $23 million in no-bid city contracts to education firms for $2.3 million in bribes and kickbacks.

Barbara Byrd-Bennett, who held top education jobs in Detroit and Cleveland before becoming Chicago Public Schools CEO, faces up to 20 years behind bars when sentenced Friday. Prosecutors will ask for a 7\u00bd-year term, while the defense will argue for 3\u00bd years.

The scheme displayed a brazenness that stood out even for a city with a long history of corruption. Byrd-Bennett, 68, participated in it knowing the district was buckling under major financial strain; the district serves 400,000, mostly low-income students, a government sentencing memo says.

At the time, Byrd-Bennett had a national reputation as an education reformer, earned a $250,000 annual salary and had multiple pensions from previous jobs. But prosecutors say she made a decision \"rooted in greed\" to participate in the scheme.

SUPES Academy and Synesi Associates LLC owners Gary Solomon and Thomas Vranas both pleaded guilty to offering Byrd-Bennett kickbacks worth 10 percent of lucrative city contracts she helped them win.

Court documents say Byrd-Bennett wrote in a 2012 email to Solomon about her eagerness to make money: \"I have tuition to pay and casinos to visit.\"

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel hired Byrd-Bennett in 2012, vowing to revitalize a school district also criticized for low student performance. As CEO, Byrd-Bennett oversaw the shuttering of dozens of schools in a money-saving measure.

She began her 40-year education career teaching in low-income neighborhoods in New York City, not far from where she grew up. Her lawyer, Michael Scudder, said she felt \"crushing humiliation and shame\" for her crimes. Since her indictment, her name was stripped from the title of a Cleveland training center, he added.

As for why she took part in the scheme, Scudder wrote: \"Nobody has struggled more with this question than Barbara herself.\"

He said she planned to make a statement to Judge Edmond Chang before he imposes a sentence.

When scrutiny of district contracts grew in 2013, Byrd-Bennett began deleting potentially incriminating emails, according to prosecutors. She resigned in June 2015 as word spread of an investigation.

Prosecutors said in their sentencing memo that they would have asked for a stiffer sentence but that Byrd-Bennett deserved credit for agreeing to cooperate soon after her arrest.

In exchange for pleading guilty to one count of wire fraud in 2015, prosecutors agreed to drop 19 other counts of fraud charged in the original indictment.

Solomon was sentenced in March to seven years in prison; Vranas is also due to be sentenced Friday.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) \u2014 The Illinois Department of Corrections has withdrawn its plan to lay off 124 nurses while continuing to negotiate with the state employees' union.

Corrections spokeswoman Nicole Wilson said Thursday the department had informed the Illinois Nurses Association that it would not remove the nurses June 15. She says prison officials are available to meet any time but the union is unavailable until May 8.

Union spokesman Chris Martin says the Corrections Department decision is welcome news. He encouraged support for legislation to halt privatizing prison jobs that was sent to Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner.

The Associated Press reported in March that the Corrections Department announced it would replace the nurses with those hired by a private health care provider.

The union says Rauner reneged on an obligation to keep negotiating an expired contract.

CHICAGO (AP) \u2014 Two corrections officers working in Cook County Jail in Chicago were injured when they were attacked by three detainees.

A Cook County Sheriff's Department spokeswoman said the attack late Wednesday left the male officers seriously injured.

Cara Smith said Thursday the attack occurred as the two officers tried to secure a patio space in the jail's maximum security section.

The sheriff's department hasn't released the names of the attackers. However, the department says two of the three accused of beating the officers are charged with attempted murder in the 2015 shooting of an off-duty Oak Park police officer. The third man is accused in the 2013 shooting of a child and her aunt.

Smith said the attack appeared to have been planned and the sheriff's department is seeking attempted murder charges against the three.

CHICAGO (AP) \u2014 Chicago officials say they're starting major renovations of a 120-year-old downtown train station that'll include making it wheelchair accessible.

The Chicago Transit Authority's station at Quincy Street was built in 1897. It's one of the oldest CTA rail stations and was last renovated in 1988.

City officials say it serves over 2.2 million riders each year. It's also a major transfer point for bus routes.

The overhaul is estimated to cost $18.2 million.

The upgrades include two new elevators to make the inbound and outbound platforms accessible to people with disabilities.

Some of the elements of the historic station will remain intact, including pressed metal wreaths and decorative columns.

CHICAGO (AP) \u2014 Theaters in and around Chicago will dim their marquee lights and observe a moment of silence in honor of former Steppenwolf Theatre artistic director Martha Lavey. Lavey died this week.

In a news release, the Steppenwolf Theater says the tributes will take place at the Steppenwolf, Goodman Theatre, Victory Gardens Theatre and others a half hour before the start times of their evening productions on Friday night.

Lavey was one of the most influential figures in the Chicago theater scene. She appeared in more than 30 productions herself at the Steppenwolf and was the artistic director there for two decades.

Lavey died at the age of 60 on Tuesday, several days after suffering a stroke.

CHICAGO (AP) \u2014 A second man has been charged in the death of an Illinois judge who was gunned down outside his Chicago home earlier this month, authorities announced Thursday.

Chicago police said Earl Wilson, 45, has been charged with first-degree murder in the fatal shooting of 66-year-old Cook County Circuit Court Judge Raymond Myles.

Joshua Smith, 37, already has been charged with first-degree murder, aggravated battery and obstructing police. Smith, who authorities allege was the getaway driver after the shooting, is being held without bond at the Cook County Jail.

\"We believe (Wilson) is the shooter in this reprehensible attack and was assisted by Mr. Smith,\" Cmdr. Rodney Blisset said, adding that the investigation continues.

It's not clear whether Wilson has an attorney who could comment on his behalf.

Wilson has a criminal record dating back more than two decades, and before Myles' shooting police had identified Wilson as being at a higher risk of perpetrating gun violence or being a victim of it, according to Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson.

Wilson's record includes an attempted murder conviction in 1992, Johnson said. He served 12 years of an 18-year prison sentence and since his release in 2004 has been arrested several times for vehicle theft, domestic battery and gun possession.

\"When we fail to address the problem, we continue to get these same results,\" Johnson said. \"Tragically, in this instance, it culminated in the injury of on innocent victim and took the life of a dedicated public servant.\"

Authorities have said that Myles was fatally shot while investigating a commotion involving a female friend outside his home on April 10. The woman had been shot in the leg.

Myles was shot multiple times after exchanging words with the person who shot his friend, authorities said. Robbery was the motive, they said.

Police have said that shell casings found outside Myles' home matched ballistics evidence from an attempted armed robbery in January.
