MCHENRY COUNTY, Ill. (WTVO) — The family of slain McHenry County Deputy Jacob Keltner received some financial help Wednesday, with their mortgage paid in full.

The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, raised the money as part of the non-profit’s Fallen First Responders program.

The group helps to ensure that surviving family members aren’t forced from their homes because of money concerns.

Deputy Keltner was shot and killed in March at a Rockford hotel while he was attempting to serve an arrest warrant.

He left behind a wife and two young sons.
