Jury selection to begin for man accused of Joliet double murder


JOLIET, Illinois — Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday for another suspect in a grisly double murder in Joliet, weeks after a judge found a co-defendant guilty.

Joshua Miner, 26, was one of four people arrested after the bodies of Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins were found strangled with plastic bags over their heads in a Joliet home in January of last year. Authorities allege the suspects killed the two 22-year-old men to rob them for money to buy alcohol and cigarettes.

In August, one of the suspects, 20-year-old Bethany McKee, was convicted by a judge of murdering the two men. She faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison at her sentencing, which at the time of her conviction was scheduled for next month.

A third suspect is awaiting trial and the fourth suspected pleaded guilty to robbery and concealment of a homicidal death in exchange for a 10-year-prison sentence.
