A judge will allow testimony a Wheaton man has post-traumatic stress disorder when he stands trial on first-degree murder charges Oct. 17.
A DuPage County Judge will allow testimony that a Wheaton man charged with first-degree murder has post-traumatic stress disorder after a 1980s military accident, the Daily Herald reported. Michael Delaney of Wheaton is charged with the 2009 stabbing murder of a Wheaton man outside an apartment in the 800 block of Crescent Street, according to the Chicago Tribune. Defense attorneys say the condition may have caused Delaney to think he was defending himself when he stabbed neighbor Michael Scalzo in 2009, according to the Herald. Delaney returns to court Oct. 17.
A Wheaton woman charged with prostitution, an inmate charged with soliciting someone to kill two public officials, a Wheaton man accused with leaving the scene of a fatal accident, and others return to DuPage County courts next week.
MONDAY, AUGUST 20 Christine Obarr, of the 400 block of Sunnybrook Lane in Wheaton faces prostitution charges after a sting by Naperville police in May. The string resulted in charges for six people with prostitution and pandering, Naperville police said. The Naperville Police Department’s special undercover unit regularly checks social media websites for suspected prostitution activity in the Western suburbs, said Naperville Police Department Sgt. Gregg Bell. Thursday’s arrests resulted from online communications and police setting up meetings at a location on Iroquois Avenue, he said. Obarr is free on $1,500 bond. She will return to DuPage County court Monday, Aug. 20 to set a trial date. Related posts: TUESDAY, AUGUST 21 Michael Delaney…
