A 17-year-old Chicago teen could face charges in the shoving death of a 68-year-old church deacon at a North Side “L” stop.
Authorities arrested the unnamed teen for allgedly pushing Sally Katona-King down a flight of stairs at the Fullerton CTA station back in March,the Sun-Times reports. The suspect had allegedly stolen an iPhone from a CTA rider and was rushing from the scene when he pushed the woman down the stairs.
Katona-King, who just left her job as a receptionist at the Evangelical Lutheran Metropolitan Chicago Synod, died from her injuries the following day.
The suspect was already in custody when he was arrested for the Katona-King death. He reportedly was arrested in June for a separate incident and sentenced to four years in prison, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Details of his second arrest were not available, but police used a sketch and description derived from witness accounts and surveillance video to put together a composite.
