Plackowska Court Update

A trial date may soon be set for a Naperville mother accused of killing her son and another child in her care.

Elzbieta Plackowska recently appeared in DuPage County Court for a status hearing in her case. The 44-year-old is charged with the first-degree murder of her 7-year-old son Justin and 5-year-old Olivia Dworakowski, who she was babysitting October 30, 2012. The two were found stabbed to death that night in a Naperville townhome.

Plackowska is expected to seek an insanity defense. At the latest status hearing, a third expert was requested to examine the case before proceeding.

The next court date will be December 2, at which time a trial date for the spring is expected to be set.
