FOX LAKE, Ill. —  The widow of disgraced Fox Lake police lieutenant Joe Gliniewicz wants to collect his pension.

Melodie Gliniewicz submitted a formal application, even though she is awaiting trial on several felony charges.

Prosecutors say Melodie and her husband embezzled thousands of dollars from the police youth explorers program, before he committed suicide.

Her lawyers claim she was a victim of her husband’s deceit.

If her application is approved, she would receive up to $72,000 dollars a year.
