VB Police Contract

Barrington officials signed off this week on a new contract with the village’s police officers.

The agreement with Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #177 began Jan. 1 and includes 3% salary hikes for each of the three years of the contract. It was approved by the village board Monday.

Under the new contract, the new officers will start with a $76,620 salary. After six years, an officer could achieve the top pay of $109,977.

Police Chief Dave Dorn said Barrington’s recently acquired home-rule status enabled the contract to allow the hiring of “lateral” transfers — officers currently employed by another agency. Bringing in lateral transfers has advantages, he said.

“You can look at a broader applicant pool. You can speed up your testing process as well,” Dorn said.

Dorn said the agreement would have been negotiated quicker if wages had been the only focus. But contract talks also involved incorporating 12-hour shifts for patrol officers from a separate memorandum of understanding into the main contract.

Rudd

Convicted murderer Donnie Rudd has died while serving his prison sentence — 49 years to the day after the death of his wife, whom he was found guilty of killing in 2018.

Rudd was an attorney and school board member in Hoffman Estates in 1973 when his wife of less than a month, 19-year-old Noreen Kumeta, died from what police believed at the time were injuries from a car crash in Barrington Hills, with Rudd behind the wheel.

Despite some of the unusual circumstances of the case — including that Rudd had been living with another woman and her children up until his wedding to Kumeta — Rudd remained a free man for four decades.

But authorities were prompted to take a fresh look at the case in 2013, after an Arlington Heights detective — while reviewing the 1991 unsolved murder of a local woman who was Rudd’s client — raised new suspicions. Kumeta’s body was exhumed and a pathologist found she’d died of blunt-force injuries to her skull that were inconsistent with a car crash.

In 2015, Rudd was arrested in Texas and charged in his wife’s murder. He was convicted in 2018, despite his continued assertions of his innocence.

Rudd, who was sentenced to 75 to 150 years in prison, died Wednesday.

Rudd was 80.

Dundee Bateman

Police say a 17-year-old Algonquin boy was driving under the influence and using an electronic device during a crash that killed a 26-year-old man in Barrington Hills.

The 17-year-old, whose name was not released because he is a minor, was charged in a juvenile petition with aggravated driving under the influence, reckless homicide and aggravated use of an electronic communication device.

All of the charges are felonies, the most serious being aggravated driving under the influence, which is a Class 2 felony.

The charges stem from a two-vehicle crash on May 21 that left Ismoiljon Khakimov, 26, of Elgin, deceased.

The incident occurred around 11:10 p.m. at Route 68 and Bateman Road, according to Barrington Hills Police Department Press Information Officer William Walsh.

Two vehicles were involved and Khakimov was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The juvenile was injured and transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, Walsh said.

“Just really quickly, the Drury litigation versus the Village discovery is now closed. It’s moving in to motion practice, so we’ll hopefully get some kind of ruling in February, March-ish.”
