Attorney Jeff Muntz will lead the prosecution in the Dupage County trial. Darien triple homicide
The exact motive has been the subject of much speculation. Suspect met with survivor's ex:
The most popular theory is that Borizov hired Nodarse to kill Jeffrey Kramer, Lori Kramer, and Michael. Jeff Muntz told Judge Terry Sheen that Nodarse and Borizov met to discuss the killings on Feb. 25. That same day Nodarse quit his job at a BMW and bought a gun. Why? It appears domestic conflict over a custody battle over a child born to Jeffrey and Lori Kramer's daughter, Angela. Borizov was the father of the child and developed a strong dislike of the Kramer family over the dispute. Nodarse was a friend of Borizov.
On March 2, while Borizov was at the Empress Casino in Joliet. Mean while, Nodarse apparently used a hammer to break into the Kramer's home. He first shot at Michael Kramer, who was sleeping on a couch with his 17-year-old girlfriend. Then he apparently shot and killed Jeffrey Kramer. Next Lori Kramer was murdered. Than he apparently finished off Michael who'd secured a knife. Michael's 17-year-old girlfriend escaped, as did Anthony Kramer but she successfully hid in the closet. Nodarse fled south. He apparently stopped in Terre Haute, Indiana to ditch a gun and his clothes. These items were found in an IHOP dumpster on U.S. 41 in Terre Haute. Nordarse called Borizov on a pre-paid cell phone after he had fled to Florida. But by the time he called, Borizov was already in Darien Police custody.
Since returning to Illinois, Nordarse allegedly gave a statement outlining the details of the murderers. But Borizov's attorney, Marc Wolfe, said there is nothing to link his client to the crime. Nodarse's attorney, Randy Rueckert was not present during Nodarse's alleged confession. Borizov is charged with three counts of first-degree murder, four counts of solicitation of murder and one count of conspiracy to commit murder.
Nordarse is charged with three counts of first-degree murder, one count of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder and four counts of solicitation to murder.
As is almost always the case, Among the true losers is Borizov's 13-month-old son. The violence arising from domestic squabbles concerning child custody is becoming an epidemic. LINK.
