Attorney Seeks Mental Health Evaluation for Murder Suspect

The attorney for a man accused of killing his sister’s boyfriend in Round Lake Beach has requested a new psychological evaluation despite him recently being found fit after one year in an Elgin mental health facility. 38-year-old Jeremy Anderson, of Chicago Heights, is facing charges of first-degree murder in the 2014 shooting of a man who had been dating his sister. His attorney, Randie Bruno, said after a Tuesday hearing that since Anderson’s return to Lake County, she has noticed a decline in his attentiveness and behavior compared to conversations she had with him when he was in Elgin. Judge Mark Levitt on Tuesday approved a local fitness evaluation for Anderson in Lake County Jail, where he is being held in lieu of $3 million bail. Levitt set a next court date for Sept. 12.
