A man from Lake Villa who was convicted of murdering his former boss at Burger King will be sentenced today.
James Ealy was found guilty in the 2006 death of Mary Hutchison earlier this year.
Ealy strangled Hutchinson with the bow tie from her uniform and stabbed her with a screwdriver while robbing the fast food restaurant in Lindenhurst. Hutchinson was alone doing inventory.
Ealy faces life in prison.
