HARRISBURG, Ill. (KFVS) - Illinois State Police are looking for a murder suspect.

Alexander McWilliam, 36, of Harrisburg, is wanted on a first-degree murder charge in connection to the March 13 shooting death of Mishealia M. Meredith.

He was described 5-feet, 10-inches and weighs approximately 215 pounds.

He has black hair and brown eyes.

McWilliam is considered armed and dangerous.

McWilliam has a long history of being in the Saline County Courthouse.

He has been in legal trouble since 2006. Some of his previous charges include felony possession, use of a weapon, DUI, reckless driving, disregard to a stop sign and two speeding tickets.

In 2018, McWilliam was charged with murder intent to kill, aggravated battery, discharging a firearm and obstructing justice and leaving the state.

He was sent to state prison for obstructing justice.

Now, less than a year after being released from prison, police say they found evidence at a home in Eldorado linking him to the shooting death of Meredith.

If you see McWilliam or know his current whereabouts, investigators say to not approach him and immediately call 911.
