The bodies were found Monday in Winfield after a concerned citizen spotted unconscious people through a window and called 911. Details on their identities or how they died haven't been released. Neighbors say a couple and their adult son lived in the home. Winfield police Chief David Schar says officers forced their way into the home and found two bodies together and the third in a different room.

NEW YORK (AP) - Two national advocacy groups are teaming up to lodge sexual harassment complaints against McDonald's on behalf of 10 women who have worked at the fast food restaurant in nine cities. The effort is organized by Fight for $15, which campaigns to raise pay for low-wage workers. Legal costs are being covered by the TIMES UP Legal Defense Fund, which was launched by the National Women's Law Center to provide attorneys for women who can't afford to bring cases on their own.

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - Gov. Bruce Rauner's criminal justice adviser has told an Illinois House committee that Rauner's plan to reinstate the death penalty is designed to "avoid the legitimate objections" associated with the capital punishment law the state abandoned seven years ago. David Risely is the Republican governor's director of criminal justice and public safety policy. He told the House Judiciary-Criminal Committee on Monday that Rauner's plan would apply only to criminals found guilty "beyond all doubt."
