John L. Wilson switches to public defender to represent him in O'Laughlin murder trial
John L. Wilson, Jr., accused of murdering 14-year-old Kelli O'Laughlin in her Indian Head Park home in October 2011, agreed today to let a public defender represent him.
During his trial, Wilson has been represented by a private attorney, a public defender and, most recently, himself, despite being encouraged by Judge John Joseph Hynes to accept the appointment of a public defender.
At a hearing Tuesday, Wilson agreed to let Cook County Public Defender David McMahon represent him, said Jack Verges, attorney supervisor for the Cook County Public Defender's office in Bridgeview.
