Chicago Woman Accused of Dismembering Landlord Pleads Not Guilty
A lady has entered a not-guilty plea to murder and other counts in the death of the landlord of the Chicago boarding home where she resided. In October, Sandra Kolalou, 36, was accused of killing Frances Walker, her 69-year-old landlady, whose partial bones were discovered in a freezer inside the boarding home on the northwest side of Chicago.
According to the prosecution, Walker had given Sandra an eviction notice, before she was killed. Kolalou entered a not-guilty plea on Wednesday to the felony counts of first-degree murder and concealing a homicidal death. Along with that, she entered a not guilty plea to a misdemeanor charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon stemming from an alleged knife attack on a tow truck driver.
The date of her subsequent court appearance is Dec. 20.
When being driven to a beach on Chicago’s lakefront by a tow truck, Kolalou was detained by police after it was reported that she drew a knife on the driver. Prosecutors claim that after the 24-year-old driver refused to take her somewhere else, Kolalou put a large bag into a trash bin and then drew a knife on him.
Another trash bag was discovered by the police in the tow truck’s back. Following the issuance of a search warrant, they discovered some of Walker’s remains in a freezer in addition to signs of blood throughout the house, including on two knives.
