A Putnam County man has been indicted for the murder of a Ladd woman. According to a press release from the Illinois State Police, a grand jury yesterday returned the indictment against 67-year old Clifford Andersen of Standard. He’s charged in the murder of his sister-in-law, 62-year old Deborah Dewey. The Ladd woman was last seen alive in August of 2016 in Spring Valley. A week later, her car was found at a truck stop near Morris. A month later, police found Dewey’s body in a shallow grave in a yard near Andersen’s home in Standard.
