SUN TIMES: Police say Jimmy E. Mounts, 27, of Romeoville, offered guests at the Sept. 25 party $5 to take a punch from Startz, who was 5-foot-5 and weighed 142 pounds. Powell, who was 5-foot-8 and weighed 140 pounds, accepted the offer, according to court records. He took the punch, collected his money and continued talking with friends.

Powell collapsed a few minutes later and was rushed to Provena Saint Joseph Medical Center in Joliet, where he died. The Will County coroner said he died of a brain hemorrhage caused by blunt-force trauma.

Mounts is also charged in the case, and he and Startz are expected back in court June 16.

Guy said she heard several stories about the circumstances of her son’s death before the truth came out, including a claim he tripped over a board and hit his head. But she said police have cell phone video of the punch.
