RIVER GROVE, Ill. (CBS) — Cook County prosecutors said a west suburban woman and family caregiver planned for at least a week to kill the mother’s 14-year-old son, because they believed he wasn’t getting sufficient care for his autism.
CBS 2’s Mike Puccinelli reports Alex Spourdalakis was found dead from multiple stab wounds on Sunday in the River Grove apartment he shared with his mother and godmother. The two women were found nearby in a semi-conscious state.
His mother, 50-year-old Dorothy Spourdalakis, and his live-in caregiver and godmother, 44-year-old Jolanta Skrodzka, have been charged with first-degree murder. At a bond hearing at the Maywood courthouse on Wednesday, a judge ordered both women held without bail.
