  • Calvin Duane Pettey, 40, of Hannibal, has been arrested and charged with murder in the first degree for the death of Sandra M. Fugate.
    Hannibal Chief of Police Lyndell Davis reported Saturday, April 17, that Pettey was taken into custody by Hannibal officers and detectives Friday afternoon at 5:02 p.m. without incident on Marsh Avenue near Central Avenue.
    A warrant was issued Saturday in Circuit Court of Marion County, Associate Division, charging Pettey with the Class A felony of murder in the first degree, according to Davis.
    Pettey’s bond was set at $1 million, cash only. On Saturday he was being held at the Marion County Sheriff’s Department.
    Davis said the arrest and issuance of the warrant for Pettey results from the investigation by Hannibal Police detectives and officers into the circumstances involving the death of Sandra M. Fugate, 32, of Hannibal.
    Fugate died Thursday, April 15, and an autopsy was conducted on Friday.
    Pettey and Fugate had planned to be married on April 17.
