Cook County public defender David McMahon will represent Wilson. McMahon was assigned earlier this year to serve as Wilson's "stand-by counsel" when the defendant planned to represent himself.
McMahon on Tuesday withdrew all pending motions Wilson had previously filed, according to the Doings.
Judge John J. Hynes will preside over the case. Hynes in June warned Wilson to stop delaying the legal process after his third request for a new judge was denied, the Chicago Tribune reported.According to Indian Head Park Police, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart and Illinois State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez, Wilson on Oct. 27, 2011 broke into the rear of O'Laughlin's home on the 6300 block of Keokuk Avenue by putting by putting a rock in a knit cap and hurling it through the dining room window.
After he was found by O’Laughlin, Wilson allegedly used a butcher knife from a cutlery block in the family’s kitchen to stab her repeatedly in the back, neck and chest. He then dragged her body from the family room into the kitchen.
Both the knife and the knit cap were found at the scene of the crime; a DNA profile from the cap matches Wilson’s own.
The case resumes in Cook County court Oct. 18.
