Second arrest made in the murder of Judge Myles

Chicago Police announced Thursday evening that a second arrest has been made in the murder of Associate Judge Raymond Myles. Here is the link to the WGN-TV News coverage of the story.

In an article posted to the website, Kelly Bauer and Erica Demarest quote Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson as saying that the suspect, 45-year old Earl Wilson, was "no stranger to the criminal justice system."

Bauer and Demarest noted that, according to Supt. Johnson, "Wilson was convicted in 1992 of attempted murder and sentenced to 18 years in prison. He was released in 2004 and later arrested multiple times for domestic battery, illegal gun possession and possession of stolen vehicles."

The use of the word "arrested" seems significant. Were there further convictions arising from these 'multiple arrests'? What sentences were imposed? What portion of these sentences were served? When was Wilson's most recent arrest? When was the last case involving Wilson resolved? At the time of the murder, was Wilson on probation? Parole? It would be interesting to know the answers to these questions, I think.

Assuming this is the right guy, then thanks to CPD for tracking him down successfully before he shot anybody else. What a stupid, senseless waste of life.
