A suburban Chicago reporter has been found in contempt for failing to disclose how he got confidential police reports in a gruesome double murder case.

Joe Hosey is a reporter and editor with the AOL news website Patch. A Will County judge ordered him to turn over his notes and reveal a source who shared details of the case with him.

The Southtown Star reported Judge Gerald Kinney ruled Hosey was in contempt Friday and ordered him to disclose his source in 180 days. Hosey could face jail time.

Hosey used leaked police reports to write stories about January slayings in the Chicago suburb of Joliet.

Four people are charged in the crime. An attorney for one defendant filed a motion to determine how Hosey obtained the information.
