Courtwatch: Chicago Man Denies He Held Up Elmhurst Shell Station

Here's a look at cases we're keeping an eye on in DuPage County.

A 24-year-old Chicago man has denied charges he held up a gas station in Elmhurst.

Mario Williams, who is on parole for retail theft, remains in DuPage County Jail on $300,000 bail charged with armed robbery and aggravated robbery. Police previously said Williams used a semi-automatic handgun while demanding cash from an employee of the Shell Station in the 900 block of North York Road on Sept. 12.

Williams was captured after he tried to flee by taking a taxi out of the area. He was arraigned during an Oct. 15 hearing, court records show. He returns to court in November.

Also in DuPage County Courts:

Naperville—A Naperville man accused of stabbing his mother in 2011 after she offered to make him a sandwich has been deemed fit to stand trial again. Alexander Georg, who is being held in DuPage County Jail without bond, faces attempted murder and multiple aggravated battery charges, but was ruled unfit to stand trial in December. During an Oct. 11 hearing, attorneys and the judge learned that Georg's treatment while in custody of the Illinois Department of Human Services had restored him to a level that allows him to understand and participate in his defense. Georg is scheduled for an Oct. 24 hearing.

Wheaton—A 23-year-old Elgin woman faced felony theft and fraud charges after prosecutors accused her of stealing more than $500 from the DuPage County Employees Credit Union. Hermila Garcia, an employee at the financial institution, took the money in July after falsifying documents that said she transferred the money from her drawer to the vault. She was indicted last month on two counts each of theft, financial institution fraud and misappropriation of financial institution of property. She returns to court on Nov. 16.
