The four people accused of killing two men in Joliet plead not guilty on Tuesday, according to the New Lenox Patch.

Adam Landerman, Alisa Massaro, Bethany McKee, and Joshua Miner allegedly strangled Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins.

Police say the group lured the victims to Massaro’s home in the 1100 block of North Hickory Street in January.

Their motive appears to be robbery.

When authorities went to the house to make arrests, three of the suspects were busy playing video games with the bodies nearby.

The fourth was captured in Kankakee.

Landerman is the son of a Joliet Police sergeant.

    Death by electricutional torture! Anode to the gonads and cathode to the rectum. Start at 25 volts and SLOWLY increase by 5 volts an hour – until dead.

      That's the easy way out. There isn't a punishment you can describe to fit their needs. And the nerve to be sitting up playing video games with dead bodies beside them. Nut crackers for real.

    It is easy to judge and condemn people you don't know for these sorts of crimes, but honestly. Open your eyes, the news story here, or anywhere for that matter doesn't include all the facts. The information we do get is creativly rewritten by the media to grab attention.

    Some of them are guilty, certainly, but that doesn't mean all of them are guilty. Bethany, for example, after realising what was happening, left, called her father, and had him call the police. Had she stayed, she may have been among the victims, but because she ran, she is also being condemned with them.

    Either way this goes, I hope the truth comes out, good or bad. And that this isn't just slammed shut possibly destroying the lives of people who may be innocent.

    They were cheating at the game. We yelled at them and they just died. Your sitting in a house with two dead bodies and you didn't do it. Really, even an imbecile isn't that stupid to believe you. Thank god for lawyers, they believe anything if there's money in it.
