The four young people charged with the strangulation deaths of two Joliet men will face a judge Tuesday morning.
Arraignments are scheduled at 9 a.m. in Will County court for Adam Landerman, 19, Joliet; Alisa Massaro, 18, Joliet; Bethany McKee, 18, Shorewood; and Joshua Miner, 24, Joliet.
All four have been charged with the robbery and murders of Eric Glover, 22, and Terrance Rankins, 22, during a party at Massaro’s house at 1121 N. Hickory St.
Joliet police were alerted to trouble at Massaro’s house Jan. 10 by the Shorewood Police Department.
Before 4 p.m. that day, McKee’s father, William McKee, had phoned police in Shorewood, according to sources. Bethany had called and told him what had happened at the house, sources said.
Joliet police arrived to find a scene Joliet Police Chief Mike Trafton later called, “one of the most brutal, heinous and upsetting” he’s ever witnessed.
Police say when they walked into the house they surprised Landerman, Massaro and Miner, who were playing video games. McKee had left the house, and police stopped her about 90 minutes later in Kankakee.
According to authorities, the suspects had planned to dismember the bodies to conceal the crime.
