A Will County judge has convicted a 20-year-old woman of two counts of murder for her role in a grisly 2013 double slaying in Joliet.
Will County Judge Gerald Kinney scheduled Joshua Miner’s murder trial for Sept. 22 during a court appearance Thursday for Miner, 26, and Adam Landerman, 21. But the trial could be postponed if a pending evaluation of Miner’s sanity at the time of the killings is not complete.
The angry mom of the victim of a brutal murder is speaking out. She talked at the trial of Bethany McKee, one of four murder suspects in a horrific case.
Bethany McKee, 20, is on trial for the murders of two 22-year-olds, Terrance Rankins and Eric Glover. Their bodies were found Jan. 10, 2013, in Alisa Massaro’s home at 1121 N. Hickory St. in Joliet. Closing statements in McKee’s trial could begin as early as Tuesday.
Bill McKee is in court every day for the murder trial of his daughter, Bethany. She’s in jail because he turned her in. CBS 2’s Dorothy Tucker reports.
In her own words, Bethany McKee talked about how she and three others killed the pair, partied after the murders and then planned to get away with it.
Prosecutors say robbery was the motive behind a gruesome double murder, and they say the suspects only got away with $120.
Elusive details of one of Joliet’s most gruesome double homicides could finally be revealed this week when one of four people arrested in the case is set to go on trial.
A Will County judge on Thursday ruled that statements a man accused in the grisly murders of two Joliet men allegedly made to police without an attorney present may be used against him.
The defense alleges in motions that Joshua Miner, 25, was questioned under duress and without a lawyer present. Prosecutors said Miner was read his rights and was not coerced during questioning.

A Will County judge is considering putting a news reporter on the witness stand to find out how he got his hands on police reports describing allegations in a brutal double homicide in southwest suburban Joliet earlier this year.
A judge’s standing orders sealing the case file and gagging the attorneys left more questions than answers after the latest hearing in Will County for the group already charged with the murders of Eric Glover and Terrance Rankins.
After they allegedly murdered two young men, two of the four suspects involved in the savage and bizarre attack decided to have sex on top of the corpses, according to a published report.
The suspects and victims appear to be friends, and hung out frequently.
Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow said Monday he will personally prosecute the murder case against four young men and women accused of strangling two friends in Joliet, then attempting to dismember their bodies.
- Police say four young adults, one the son of a Joliet police sergeant , lured two friends to a house, robbed and strangled them and then played video games until police arrived.
