The three suspects in the July murder of a Chicago woman in River Forest were indicted Thursday on first-degree murder charges. An arraignment is scheduled for Aug. 10 at the Maybrook courthouse in Maywood.
Six offenders approached a victim from the rear on the 100 block of S. Ridgeland at 12:40 a.m., July 31. The first offender demanded the victim's Blackberry Storm cellphone and struck the victim in the face with his fist.
An alleged peeping tom with a background of similar offenses has been tracked down and arrested by River Forest police. Steven Myslicki, 48, of the 8000 block of Lake, was arrested and charged with felony disorderly conduct, stemming from an incident that occurred on July 17.
River Forest police responded to reports of suspicious persons in the area of 800 Monroe on July 18 shortly after 2 a.m. Residents reported seeing several subjects enter a car that did not belong to them.
As the details surrounding the first River Forest murder in more than five years continue to unravel, the most shocking bit of information came out at last week's bond hearing; that the price agreed upon to end a young woman's life was a mere $400.
Terrell L. Carter, 20, of the 1500 block of South Homan in Chicago was arrested for robbery, aggravated battery to a police officer, and resisting a peace officer on the 100 block of Harrison on July 13.
A former police officer offered to pay a friend $400 to kill his mistress, Cook County prosecutors alleged Friday morning at a bond hearing for the three men suspected of planning and carrying out the execution-style shooting of 29-year-old Chervon Alexander, of Chicago.
