LAKE COUNTY STATES ATTORNEY DROPS MURDER CHARGES AGAINST 5 BLEENS
The Lake County State’s Attorney has decided to drop controversial murder charges against five teenagers from Chicago whose friend was killed during a burglary.
The top prosecutor has decided to drop the murder charges for lesser charges under an agreement with the families of the suspects.
As part of the agreement, the only adult charged in case, 18-year-old Diamond Davis, has agreed to plead guilty to a felony burglary charge and a misdemeanor trespassing charge. She is expected to waive her preliminary hearing Thursday, and enter a guilty plea next week.
The murder charge will also be dismissed against the four juveniles, but no further details about what charges they may be facing were provided.
