Double Murder Trial To Begin
The trial starts tomorrow for Elzbieta Plackowska, the Naperville woman accused of killing two young children. Plackowska’s 7-year-old son Justin, and 5-year-old Olivia Dworakowski were stabbed to death on October 30, 2012. Police say Plackowska admitted she killed her son out of spite toward her husband, and then Olivia as she was a witness. Her attorneys will be presenting an insanity defense at the trial, which is expected to last at least two weeks.
Naperville remembers those who perished on this day 16 years ago, with a special ceremony at 6 p.m. this evening at the Commander Dan Shanower Memorial. Nearly 3,000 people were killed on this day in 2001, when terrorists flew planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania. Naperville native Naval Commander Dan Shanower died in the attack at the Pentagon. We will be broadcasting the ceremony live on Channel 17 and online starting at 6 p.m.
