Alleged gunman in Judge’s death charged

By CBS Chicago

Chicago police have announced charges of a second suspect in the April 10 shooting death of Cook County Associate Judge Raymond Myles.

Earl Wilson, 45, of Chicago is the alleged gunman who shot Myles outside the judge’s home, police said. Chicago Police Supt. Eddie Johnson says Wilson has a long criminal record.

“He is no stranger to the criminal justice system,” Johnson said at a news conference Thursday afternoon.

Wilson is charged with first-degree murder. Police officials say surveillance video from the neighborhood helped them identify the suspect.

Myles, 66, and a female companion were ambushed outside the judge’s home in the 9400 block of South Forest Avenue. The gunman wounded the woman and fatally shot Myles.

Prosecutors have already charged another man, Joshua Smith, who was an alleged accomplice to the planned-out crime, which was supposed to have been a robbery.
