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.
