Man charged with shooting death of judge in Chicago
CHICAGO | A man was charged Wednesday in the killing of a criminal court judge who was shot to death outside his Chicago home after a woman he knew was wounded by gunfire.
Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said in a tweet that Joshua Smith, 37, was charged in the fatal Monday shooting of Associate Cook County Circuit Judge Raymond Myles. No details were immediately released on what led police to the suspect.
Judge Myles, 66, was shot early Monday outside his South Side Chicago home. The woman he knew had already been shot and police have said the judge exchanged words with the attacker and then was shot, too.
