WHEATON – A judge has denied bond for a suburban Chicago homeless man accused of stabbing a homeless woman to death and burying her in a shallow grave.

The Daily Herald reports Wednesday that 40-year-old Myron D. Ester is charged in the death of 33-year-old Linda Valez.

Prosecutors say the woman was stabbed 34 times. Glen Ellyn police found Valez buried in a clearing at a park. She was reported missing in Wheaton last week.

There were no phone listings for Ester in the Chicago area. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
