A Lake County judge today denied a motion from Melodie Gliniewicz to drop some of the charges against her.

At issue were the charges of unlawful use of charity funds.

In her ruling, the judge determined Gliniewicz was accountable for money taken from Explorer Post 300.

Prosecutors believe she and her late husband, Fox Lake police lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz conspired to use the money for personal items and vacations.

Joe Gliniewicz shot and killed himself and made it look like a murder as an investigation was closing in on him.
