No bond for homeless man who allegedly stabbed Wheaton woman 34 times
October 2, 2013 (GLEN ELLYN, Ill.) (WLS) -- A judge has denied bond for a suburban Chicago homeless man accused of stabbing a homeless woman to death and burying her in a shallow grave.
The Daily Herald reports Wednesday that 40-year-old Myron D. Ester is charged in the death of 33-year-old Linda Valez. Prosecutors say the woman was stabbed 34 times. Glen Ellyn police found Valez buried in a clearing at a park. She was reported missing in Wheaton last week.
There were no phone listings for Ester in the Chicago area. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
Valez-Colon was from Wheaton and was said to have been homeless by choice. She was last seen Tuesday, September 24. She leaves behind seven children.
