A 22-year-old man being held in the Cook County jail on carjacking charges was charged with a 2011 homicide, according to authorities.
Dwayne Timberlake is charged with first-degree murder stemming from a shooting on Feb. 5, 2011 in the 2600 block of East 75th Street in the South Shore neighborhood.
He’s charged with killing Princess Streeter, 24 at the time of her death. She was shot about 2:05 a.m. Streeter's killer approached her on foot after she stepped out of her car, opened fire, then fled the scene on foot, according to police. She died three hours later at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.
Timberlake was already in custody on aggravated vehicular hijacking, armed robbery and aggravated unlawful restraint charges stemming from an attack in July, according to court records and Chicago police.
According to police, Timberlake and another man robbed two men in the Bronzeville neighborhood in July. The two men robbed, 21 and 22, were standing outside a 1985 Chevy Monte Carlo in the 600 block of East Bowen Avenue when Timberlake and another man ran through their pockets and fled the scene in the Monte Carlo, police said. That case is still underway.
Recent court records list Timberlake's home address in Elgin, though police list his home as the jail. He is due in court on the murder charge today.Copyright © 2015, CT Now
