Centralia Man Gets Four Year Prison Sentence For Aggravated Battery

A 19-year-old Centralia man has admitted pounding the face of a Centralia woman into a sidewalk last November.  Corey Egner of East Rexford was sentenced to four years in prison and ordered to pay court costs after he pleaded guilty to aggravated battery.  Egner is accused of slamming the head of 51-year-old Veronica Smith of Saddler Place in Centralia into the sidewalk near the Lincoln and Saddler Street intersection four or five times.  Police found Smith lying on her back on the sidewalk in a pool of blood. She was taken to St. Mary's Hospital for treatment.  

A felony domestic battery charge has been dropped against a 44-year-old Kell man.  Prosecutors dropped the charges against Roderick Carpenter of Foxville Road because they were unable to contact the victim.  She reportedly left a voice mail on the State's Attorneys phone system that she had not told police the truth about the case.
