A 28-year-old Melrose Park man already in jail on a sex charge that involves an 11-year-old girl is now accused of plotting to murder the girl and her family, the Cook County Sheriff's Office announced Saturday. Brian Thurman was charged with three counts of murder for hire and three counts of solicitation of murder for hire, felonies that land him in prison for up to 30 years if he is found guilty of one of them.
