John L. Wilson Enters Not Guilty Plea

John L. Wilson, Jr., the man charged with the murder of a Lyons Township teen, has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. At his arraignment Wednesday morning, Wilson's attorney made a third petition to have Wilson remanded to the custody of the Cook County Sheriff's Office.

Wilson is currently being held at the Pontiac Correctional Facility, located about 100 miles south of Chicago on I-55.
