Jonathan Hurst appeared in Judge Marcy Buick’s courtroom at the DeKalb County Courthouse Monday as prosecutors prepare for his expected June double murder trial in the 2016 slayings of Sycamore mother and son, Patricia A. Wilson, 85 and Robert J. Wilson, 64. The trial will open almost eight years after the Wilsons were found brutally beaten to death inside their home.

Ex-police officer James Corralejo, of DeKalb, took the stand in front of Judge Philip Montgomery Monday to deny allegations that he consumed alcohol after prosecutors alleged he tampered with his ankle monitor after it detected alcohol six times in March and April. Corralejo is on release pending charges that he drove drunk and caused a Nov. 5, 2023, crash that killed DeKalb woman Graciela Reza Contreras, 59.
