(Mundelein, IL) Lake County Sheriff’s officials say three illegally possessed firearms have been recovered from the Mundelein area. Deputies say they were called to the 26-thousand block of North Diamond Lake Road on Monday, after calls from neighbors of George Silva, about potentially suspicious behavior, and his possession of firearms. When they arrived, they were able to execute a search warrant, as Silva is a convicted felon and his FOID card was revoked. Deputies recovered 3 guns and arrested the 48-year-old on charges of unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon. Silva was released on a 50-thousand-dollar bond and is due back in court in mid-December.

(Chicago, IL) The attorneys for a woman convicted in a Deerfield murder say a re-trial petition for their client will be heard next month. Marni Yang is serving two life sentences in the 2007 killing of Rhoni Reuter and her unborn child. Defense attorneys say they have uncovered new evidence that they claim will exonerate Yang, and have also alleged corruption by the Lake County Major Crimes Task Force during their investigation. A Lake County Judge will decide next month whether the 700-page petition has any merit. If that step is passed, prosecutors will then look over the document and make their own motions.

The pair are accused of picking up high value equipment from Home Depot stores and take the items to their car. They would then reportedly come back into the store and take similar items off the shelf, and “return” them using the receipt from the original purchase. They are accused of pulling off the scam in several counties including Lake, and allegedly in several other states. Both Round Lake men have pleaded not guilty, and will be back in court on December 17th.
