Defendants in Joliet double murder in court today
The family of Eric Glover plans to attend Monday’s preliminary hearing at the Will County Courthouse for four defendants accused of murdering Eric and his friend, Terrence Rankins.
They are on a mission to make sure Eric gets justice. “The last thing we said to our son was ‘we love you son, be careful'” said Bobby Jones, Eric’s stepfather.
The last time Bobby and Nicole Jones saw their son was Wednesday night when Glover and his fiance, Heather Gossman, left their home.
Heather says Eric then left to give is friend, Terrence Rankins, a ride somewhere. That’s the last time she saw him alive.
19-year old Adam Landerman, 18-year old Alisa Massaro, 24-year old Joshua Miner and 18-year old Bethany McKee are being held on $10 million bail for murder.
Landerman is the son of a Joliet police sergeant.
Police say the four lured Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins over to Massaro’s home Wednesday night.
Both men were robbed and strangled. Prosecutors say they tried to dismember the bodies and continued to play video games, until police arrived the next day.
Heather Gossman says she and Eric planned to be married next month on Valentine’s Day. “We were just meant for each other. We just clicked so well and I got that taken away from me.”
