In Court This Week: Cases of Attempted Murder, Murder and Theft
Here's a look at some of the cases we're keeping an eye on this week.
DuPage County Court cases this week include hearings for attempted murders in Elmhurst, for a triple murder in Darien, and for a former Clarendon Hills police officer accused of stealing weapons.
Elmhurst—Cheryl Luchetta, accused of drugging her son in what might have been an attempted murder-suicide, is scheduled for a Monday, July 18, hearing. Prosecutors may ask the judge to order Luchetta to undergo a psychological exam. Hearing is set for 8:30 a.m. in Room 4010. Luchetta also has an appearance for her divorce case the same day, at 9:30 a.m. in Room 3002.
Elmhurst—Bryan Connell, one of three men from same family charged in an altercation at Spring Inn in March, is scheduled for a status hearing at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday, July 19, in Room 4003. His brother and father both are due in court next month.
Elmhurst—Sandra Clanton is expected in court on Thursday, July 21. Her case was continued from Friday, July 15.
Darien—Jacob Nodarse returns to court July 21 for another status hearing in a Darien triple murder. His last appearance stagnated on records and evaluations, but eventually the idea of separating his trial from the trial of Johnny Borizov is likely to come up.
Downers Grove—Theresa Carlquist has a Wednesday, July 20, hearing set in her theft case involving the youth football program at 9 a.m. in 4010.
Hinsdale/Clarendon Hills—Daniel Ryan, former Clarendon Hills police officer accused of stealing guns, returns to court for a status hearing at 9 a.m. Wednesday, July 20, in Room 4010. He pleaded not guilty during his last appearance.
