About this Article

Juan Luna and James Degorski together took seven lives 20 years ago at a Brown's Chicken restaurant in Palatine. Today the pair lead seperate but parallel existences in maximum-security prisons on opposite ends of the state. Degorski, 40, and Luna, 38, spend the bulk of their days in 6-by-10-foot cells, frequently poring over the limited legal resources at their disposal.
