Shelby County State’s Attorney Nichole Kroncke in a statement said that each charge reads the driving under the influence violation resulted in the death of Kacy Alday, 24, and Stephanie Newton, 35, both of Assumption.

According to a preliminary report from the Illinois State Police, the vehicle driven by Sisk was traveling east on 2100 North Road when she attempted to pass an unknown vehicle in a no-passing zone and collided with a westbound motorcycle.

State Police said in a news release that the collision occurred around 9:36 p.m. Friday along County Road 2100 North between County Road 800 East and 900 East.

Kroncke said each charge is a Class 2 felony with a sentencing range of 6 to 28 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections. Probation is a possible sentence if the court determines that extraordinary circumstances exist and require probation.

Sisk appeared in court on Monday via Zoom and bail was set at $2 million by Circuit Judge Mike McHaney. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Sept. 27.
