The man convicted in March of First-Degree Murder and Kidnapping in the 2010 death of an East Alton woman will likely spend the rest of his life in prison. 54-year-old Roger Carroll was found guilty by a jury in Jersey County Court in the death of Bonnie Woodward in September. He was sentenced this (Thursday) afternoon to 65-years behind bars with no possibility of parole.
He will have to serve 100% of the sentence. Carroll had been arrested and charged in 2018 in the disappearance and murder of Woodward after investigators working a domestic abuse case against Carroll spoke to his son. Nathan Carroll was given immunity in exchange for his testimony with authorities saying the then-teenager was “dragged into” the events in 2010.
