Third Man Charged in Bensenville Clerk's Slaying

Prosecutors say Stephen Russell may face more charges connected to Jan. 19 death of Hussein Saghir

A third man has been charged in connection with the death of a Bensenville convenience store clerk in January.

Stephen Russell, 20, of Chicago,  was charged Thursday with harassing the mother of one of the other suspects and throwing a bottle at her head. Prosecutors said he may face more charges related to Hussein Saghir's January 19 death but wouldn't elaborate.

A judge set Russell's bail at $2.5 million.

Saghir, 36, was working at Sam's Tobacco and Food Mart, at 235 W. Irving Park Rd., when he and his brother were confronted by two males as they were closing up for the night. Surveillance video showed the two men trying to force the brothers back into the store, and at one point one of the men pulled out a gun and shot Saghir.

Two men, Kenneth Bardlett, 20, of Bellwood, and Tremayne Davis, 23, of Chicago, are already in custody.
