  • People v. Wilmington


  • A Cook County jury convicted this defendant in the 2004 shooting death of a man whose body was found in a garbage can on the south side of Chicago. He received consecutive prison terms of 50 years for the murder and 5 years for concealment of a homicidal death. The appellate court had initially reversed and remanded for a new trial, finding plain error in purportedly inadequate questioning during jury selection, but, pursuant to a supervisory order from the Illinois Supreme Court, it reconsidered, and, ultimately, affirmed the convictions and sentences. In this decision, the supreme court agreed with what the appellate court had done, although reasoning slightly differently.Wilmington gave a statement
