Prosecutor seeks to have Nicholas tried as an adult

Champaign County CourthouseThe Champaign County Prosecutor's Office has requested that 14-year-old Donovan Nicholas be tried as an adult for killing his dad's fiancee.

In a release, Champaign County Prosecutor Kevin Talebi said his office considered the seriousness of the crime and “the deliberate and premeditated nature of the offenses alleged and the available sanctions and penalties available in the juvenile system.”

On April 6th, the Champaign County Sheriff's Office reports that Nicholas fatally stabbed and shot Heidi Fay Taylor, 40, at 4328 Valley Pike (near Dallas Road).

Taylor was pronounced dead at the scene.

Nicholas was taken into custody that night.

On April 7th, he was charged with one count of aggravated murder and one count of murder.

No motive was given for the murder.
