Bloomington woman describes choking mother-in-law
BLOOMINGTON -- A Bloomington woman on trial in the death of her mother-in-law tells a jury how she choked the other woman.
The (Bloomington) Pantagraph reports that Misook Nowlin on Monday described how she held her mother-in-law around the neck by a purse strap and sweater until the victim passed out.
The 47-year-old Nowlin is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 70-year-old Wenlan Linda Tyda of Crest Hill in September 2011.
Nowlin has pleaded not guilty and is claiming self-defense. She says her mother-in-law was choking her neck.
Nowlin says she put Tyda's body in a plastic tote and buried her in a Will County forest preserve.
McLean County prosecutors say Nowlin lured her mother-in-law to central Illinois by making her think a job was available translating Chinese.
