A third man, 38-year-old Cardell Taylor, is awaiting trial.

Prosecutors say Alexander was killed after she began pressuring the older Bickham to divorce his wife and marry her.

Authorities say Bickham drove Alexander to a parking lot near Dominican University in River Forest, where Taylor shot her. The men were arrested as they fled the scene.
