Cook County Judge Shot Dead, Girlfriend Wounded Outside Far South Side Home

(Gigionthat) It started out as a typical Monday morning for longtime Cook County Associate Judge Raymond Myles.

Judge-Raymond

An early riser, Myles was up before dawn at his West Chesterfield home on the city’s Far South Side, getting ready to hit the gym with his girlfriend before reporting to his courtroom at the Leighton Criminal Court Building.

But as the 52-year-old woman left the two-story brick residence shortly before 5 a.m., she was confronted near the garage by a gunman who shot her in the leg, according to Chicago police. Hearing the commotion, Myles, 66, ran outside and exchanged words with the assailant himself before he was shot multiple times and killed.

A neighbor and friend of the judge told the Tribune he was awakened by the shouts of the woman and the crack of about six gunshots.
