Authorities say a 60-year-old central Illinois man is expected to face upgraded murder charges after a shooting victim who had been hospitalized died.

David Bauer of Decatur was charged with attempted murder in the shooting of 46-year-old contractor Alan Goodwin. Goodwin had been in critical condition with bullets lodged in his left lung, liver and kidneys.

Goodwin died Wednesday at an Urbana hospital.

Goodwin was the owner of A-1 Construction Inc. Authorities allege Bauer was unhappy with work that Goodwin had been performing at his home and shot him last month.

Bauer is being held in the Macon County Jail on a $2 million bond.

The Macon County state's attorney's office says Bauer will likely be arraigned in court Friday on first-degree murder.
