Four Time Killer Strikes Again...

News outlet, CWB Chicago, doing a great job of coverage on crime in Chicago:

An altercation between residents at the Lakeview YMCA in January culminated today with a 55-year-old man being charged with homicide in the death of his next-door-neighbor...

Arthur Cannon, 83, died on January 12, ten days after George Field battered him in Cannon’s room on the facility’s fourth floor at 3333 North Marshfield, according to prosecutors. This month, the Cook County Medical Examiner ruled Cannon’s death to be a homicide with contributing health factors including arteriosclerosis, chronic kidney disease, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, according to a post-mortem report.

Like spotting stuff like this:

In 1985, Field was found guilty on four counts of murder, two counts of aggravated battery, and one count of attempted murder in a bench trial overseen by now-deceased Cook County Judge Francis Mahon. Field was sentenced to 35-years on the murder and aggravated battery charges and 30-years on the attempted murder count, to be served concurrently. He was paroled in 2006.
