Man charged in murder of Elgin woman

Paul Johnson, on parole for residential burglary, is charged with using a screw driver to break into Lisa Kozial-Ellis’ Elgin’s townhouse and then stabbing her with it when he was confronted.

Kozial-Ellis lived three doors down from Johnson.

She and her husband moved in three days before she was murdered.

Elgin police say Johnson confessed to a friend of the break in and murder.  That friend went to police.

34-year-old Johnson is being held on five million dollars bail.  He faces 100 years in prison if convicted.
