First defendant in 2013 Joliet double murder to go on trial

JOLIET, Ill. - A trial for one of four people accused in a 2013 double homicide in Joliet, Ill., is set to begin Monday.

Twenty-year-old Bethany McKee is accused of taking part in the slayings of Eric Glover and Terrance Rankins in January 2013. Prosecutors say both men were strangled and then robbed of money and drugs. Their bodies were found in a house belonging to one of the four accused.

Twenty-two-year-old Alisa Massaro pleaded guilty in May to robbery and concealment of a homicidal death in exchange for a 10-year prison sentence. Twenty-six-year-old Joshua Miner and 21-year-old Adam Landerman are awaiting trial.

The Will County State's Attorney's office tells CBS Chicago that they intend to prosecute Miner next.
