Two men have been charged with murder in the deaths of a mother and daughter whose bodies were found in a burning car in unincorporated Palos Park.


Robert Danno and Jose Martinez-Hernandez will appear in bond court Tuesday morning.

They are accused of killing Danno’s wife and mother-in-law on Saturday night.

Cook County sheriff’s police say the women were strangled in Chicago, and then driven to a nature preserve in the younger victim’s car.

Then, the vehicle was set on fire.

The victims have since been identified as Mary Ann Urban-Danno and her mother, Theresa Urban.
