Pretrial hearings against an Orland Park man charged with murder were continued to March 6 as the state continues to gather evidence.
Nearly 16 months ago, in the early hours of a September morning, wrapped in a bed sheet with a gunshot wound to her head.
He claimed he awoke to a gunshot and found his wife dead, with a pistol in her hand. Orland Park police charged him with first-degree murder.
Last month, prosecutors said they were close to wrapping up their case.
When presented with all the state's evidence, the defense will be free to begin their own investigation in earnest—one that may rely in part on conflicting forensic opinion.
