When Asmi knocked on the door, Covelli told reporters, “at first, we believe the victim indicated that Kathryn was not inside with him.”

Asmi Ibrihim Jr., 37, is accused by the prosecution of first-degree murder and obstructing justice. Concerning the fatal shooting, Kathryn A. Deason, 31, is also charged with obstructing justice.

However, they claim that the shooting took place just a short while after the two suspects arrived in a minivan and Ibrihim proceeded in search of Deason. Investigators are still attempting to determine what motivated the crime.

According to Lt. Christopher Covelli, a Lake County Major Crimes Task Force spokesman, when Asmi knocked on the door, the victim told him that Kathryn wasn’t inside with him.

Later, after getting a rifle from the minivan he had arrived in, the shooter entered the house, went upstairs, and shot the 77-year-old.

Both were taken into custody at Ibrihim’s Round Lake residence, where police claimed to have seen the getaway car.
