Arraignment date set for man charged with stabbing Wheaton woman in Glen Ellyn

A man charged in the stabbing death of a Wheaton woman will appear in court next Friday for an arraignment hearing.

Myron D. Ester, 40, was charged with first degree murder after the body of Linda Valez, 33, was found buried in a shallow grave in Glen Ellyn's Panfish Park. Valez's body was discovered by police after she was reported missing, according to the DuPage County State's Attorney's Office.

At a bond hearing Oct. 2, the prosecution said Valez's body bore approximately 34 stab wounds, including multiple wounds to the face, torso and forearms that appeared to have been made in self defense.

Ester will appear again in court at 9 a.m. Oct. 18 for his arraignment, where he may enter a plea.
