Brown's Chicken killings
On Jan. 8, 1993, Juan Luna and Jim Degorski entered a Brown's Chicken and Pasta restaurant in Palatine and killed seven people in what authorities contend was premeditated murder. Luna was convicted of murder in 2007, and Degorski followed two years later. Jurors spared them the death penalty, but both are serving life sentences with no possibility of parole.
