John L. Wilson Jr allegedly accused of stabbing Kelli O’Laughlin to death

A man has allegedly been accused of stabbing to death 14-year-old Kelli O’Laughlin. John L. Wilson Jr, 38, was allegedly robbing a house when O’Laughlin walked in. The girl was found with multiple stab wounds.

Kelli O’Laughlin was killed in her family’s suburban Chicago home in late October, her body discovered by her mother. There was initial concern that the case might be linked to a spate of robberies in the area, but it’s not clear if police are still pursuing that possibility.

John L. Wilson Jr was reportedly arrested after a police officer recognised him from a composite sketch developed shortly after O’Laughlin’s death. The officer had allegedly seen Wilson in the area around the time of the incident.
