Police arrest man in death of nightclub owner

Peoria Police have arrested a 29-year-old man in connection with the murder of a nightclub owner.  Bryan J. Stewart is charged with murder and aggravated arson in the death of Todd Scholl.  Scholl sustained multiple stab wounds and died prior to a fire in a downtown storage area last week.  He owned two bars, Berlin and Diesel, on Main Street.

Police say Stewart was the person they identified in a security camera video as a person of interest during the investigation into Scholl's slaying.
