Fox Lake Murder Suspect Removed From Courtroom

9/16/17 – Fox Lake murder suspect Laverne Ware Jr. was removed from the courtroom during a motion hearing yesterday. The 37-year-old is seeking to represent himself in and Judge Brian Pfitzinger took issue with the defendant’s behavior. Ware is accused of murdering his girlfriend and first cousin, Sesalie Dixon, last December. The 27-year-old was found in the cab of Ware’s pick-up truck inside a Fox Lake garage with a gunshot wound to the head. Ware has gone through four sets of attorneys so far with the most recent counsel withdrawing from the case one month ago. A two-week jury is currently scheduled to begin April 9. Yesterday’s hearing is expected to be rescheduled next week.
