When police found the car, officers noticed different license plates on the front and rear, Staples said. The plate that police saw in the security videos had been switched, she said.

Tests on shell casings found at the scene of the shootings showed the murder weapon was previously used in an armed robbery in January in which the victim was shot and wounded, Staples said. It underscores the problem of illegal guns being used over and over in Chicago, she said.

It appears Smith had fleeting contact with the judge about 16 years ago.

In 2001, he appeared before Myles on a charge of failing to have a title for a vehicle, but the case was dismissed, court records show.

The next year, Smith was charged with armed robbery with a firearm. He was convicted in 2003 and sentenced to six years in prison, records show.

Detectives said Myles walked out of his house after his girlfriend was shot and exchanged words with the assailant before he was gunned down on a back porch.

 

A neighbor told the Sun-Times he heard a woman scream, “Don’t kill him! Don’t kill him!” and then heard about five shots.

Neighbors said the 66-year-old judge, whose career spanned nearly two decades, often left the house early in the morning with his 52-year-old girlfriend to work out.

The FBI offered a $25,000 reward for tips leading to an arrest.
