LA GRANGE, Ill. (Chicago Tribune) -- DeAngelo Hughes, 25, is charged with first-degree murder in the Friday morning shooting death of his stepfather Curtis Lee Clark, 51, in their shared Bluff Avenue residence.
Clark was pronounced dead on the scene; an autopsy revealed two gunshot wounds to the head and three on his thigh and lower back. Clark was a security guard who, according to records, was dating Hughes' mother off and on for 20 years.
Hughes is scheduled to return to court Tuesday.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports Hughes, a Navy veteran, admitted he fatally shot his mother's boyfriend at their apartment because the man was planning to kill him as part of a “blood sacrifice for the Illuminati.”
