4 defendants in Joliet homicides plead not guilty

JOLIET – Four people accused of strangling two Joliet men have all pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder charges.

Investigators say officers arrived to find three of the suspects playing video games at the Joliet home where the bodies of Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins were found. Authorities say the 22-year-old men were robbed and killed during a Jan. 10 party.

On Tuesday, 19-year-old Adam Landerman, 18-year-old Alisa Massaro, 18-year-old Bethany McKee and 24-year-old Joshua Miner appeared before a Will County judge to enter their pleas.

The (Joliet) Herald-News (http://bit.ly/12qCij6 ) reports the four defendants were led into a crowded courtroom with additional sheriff's deputies and bailiffs providing security. They sat far apart and didn't communicate with each other.

Their next court date is scheduled for March 1.
