Authorities say evidence is being tested as they continue the investigation into a Dwight shooting that left a mother and daughter dead. Illinois State Police spokeswoman Monique Bond says state police, Dwight police and investigators are "making significant progress." 60 year-old Donna Denker and 30-year-old Kelli Denker were killed June 14 in the town. A 23-year-old man also was shot and is recovering. A $10,000 reward is available for information in the case. Village President Jared Anderson says he's confident investigators will be able to "get some closure for the community as well as the Denker family." Donna Denker was a retired mental health technician, and Kelli Denker was a manager at the Dwight Dairy Queen.
