A 40-year-old man was charged Tuesday with murdering a Wheaton woman who was found stabbed to death in a park in west suburban Glen Ellyn.
Myron D. Ester was charged with first-degree murder in the fatal stabbing of Linda Valez, 33, the DuPage State’s Attorney’s office said Tuesday. He was scheduled to appear at a bond hearing Wednesday.
Valez’s body was found Saturday in a forested area of Panfish Park. Her body showed “obvious” signs of trauma, and there was evidence that she had been stabbed, authorities said.
Prosecutors did not disclose a motive for the attack.
