The judge in the Nightmare on Hickory Street double murder case told a defense attorney he wants to get things going.
"I'll work with you but I do want to see the matter move forward," Judge Gerald Kinney told defense attorney Chuck Bretz during a Friday morning hearing in Will County court.
Bretz had asked the judge for a court date in January but Kinney told him to come back in December.
Bretz's client, Bethany McKee, 19, along with her three co-defendants—Adam Landerman, 20, Alisa Massaro, 19, and Joshua Miner, 25, all were charged with the January murders of Terrance Rankins and Eric Glover, both 22.
Assistant State's Attorney John Connor told Judge Kinney during the hearing that the results of DNA testing have been turned over to defense lawyers and that he will check if fingerprint testing has been completed.
"At this point," Connor said, "the bulk of the forensic testing is done."
