Murder Suspect Found In Contempt Of Court
December 11, 2014 — CROWN POINT (AP) — A 35-year-old man accused of killing his parents was sentenced yesterday to 18 months in jail, after a judge found him in contempt of court three times during a hearing on the murder charges.
But Thomas J. Snow told the Lake County judge he didn’t care that he was being held in contempt because he’s already being held without bail.
The “Times” reports that Snow cursed during the court hearing, interrupted the judge and argued with him about whether his court-appointed public defender had sufficient legal experience.
Snow faces two murder charges in the killings of his parents, who were found dead in their Lowell home in October 2013. He was arrested in Minnesota after detectives tracked his parents’ credit card and cellphone records.
