CHICAGO (CBS) — A jury returned a guilty verdict against a man who killed a Chicago police evidence technician and a former housing authority cop in 2010, as the tech investigated a car burglary on the Southeast Side.
Timothy Herring, 24, was accused with killing Chicago Police Officer Michael Flisk and former Chicago Housing Authority police officer Stephen Peters.
Flisk was dusting for prints after Peters’ custom Ford Mustang had been stripped for parts on Nov. 26, 2010. Prosecutors said, when Herring found Flisk found a print, he returned to the scene of the crime in the 8100 block of South Burnham Avenue, and killed Flisk and Peters.
The courtroom was packed with police officers and the victims’ relatives when the jury announced its guilty verdict on Wednesday.
