Illinois Man Convicted of Murdering Ham and His Dog
A Rockford, Illinois, man has been convicted of murder in the death of an Illinois army veteran and amateur radio operator, also of Rockford. The Winnebago County prosecutor's office said 31-year-old Delano Foreman was convicted on 16 counts that included first-degree murder, burglary, concealment of a homicidal death and aggravated animal cruelty.
According to Newsline, prosecutors told the jury that Foreman first robbed 67-year-old Henry Murphy, WB9TFX, in 2015 before shooting to death both Murphy and his golden retriever, Shelby, and then setting their house on fire. The verdict was announced on June 30. A sentencing hearing was scheduled for mid-August. Foreman could face up to 60 years in prison on the various charges.
