CHICAGO (AP) — A grand jury has formally indicted a Chicago man charged in the fatal shooting of a Cook County judge last month.
The Chicago Tribune (http://trib.in/2qlcWS6 ) reports that during a hearing Wednesday, prosecutors said 45-year-old Earl Wilson was indicted on 27 counts in the April 10 slaying of Judge Raymond Myles. The charges include first-degree murder, attempted murder, aggravated battery, armed robbery and unlawful restraint.
The man who was allegedly Wilson’s getaway driver — 37-year-old Joshua T. Smith — has already been indicted on two counts of first-degree murder and one count each of armed robbery and aggravated unlawful restraint.
Prosecutors say Wilson allegedly shot Myles’ girlfriend in the leg outside the judge’s Chicago home. Myles was shot several times when he came outside and confronted the gunman.
