Fox Lake Murder Suspect Seeks New Council

8/21/17 – A Fox Lake man accused of murdering his girlfriend is once again seeking new council. Laverne Ware Jr. informed his attorneys that he no longer wanted them representing him following his arraignment hearing last week. Jonathon Smith and Steven Kohn filed a motion last week to withdraw from the case. On December 4, Ware’s 27-year-old girlfriend, Sesalie Dixon, was found in the cab of Ware’s pick-up truck inside a Fox Lake garage with a gunshot wound to the head. A two-week jury is currently scheduled for April 9 through April 20.
