Man Admits to Attempted Murder

A press release from the McHenry County State’s Attorney:


Patrick D. Kenneally, McHenry County State’s Attorney, announces that 33-year-old Miguel Hernandez-Solorzano of Des Plaines, Illinois, pled guilty to the offenses of Attempted First Degree Murder and Aggravated Battery.

Hernandez-Solorzano faces penalties that range from 6 to 30 years in in the Illinois Department of Corrections for the offense of Attempted First Degree Murder.

Under Truth in Sentencing Guidelines, Hernandez-Solorzano must serve 85% of the sentence imposed.

In early October of 2017, Hernandez-Solorzano sent threatening text messages to one of the victims with whom Hernandez-Solorzano had been in a relationship with.

Days later, while the victims were attending a child’s birthday party at a relative’s house, Hernandez-Solorzano, who had been hiding behind a barn on the property, jumped out and attacked two victims with a knife.

The victims fought off Hernandez-Solorzano who was subsequently restrained by other family members until police arrived on scene.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorneys Rita Gara and Randi Freese.

The case was investigated by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office.

  1. Yes, indeed, Justin.

    If you think the worst thing that can happen by leaving comments on websites is getting caught in a flame war, think again. This weekend, police in Mexico found the headless body of a woman who, according to a note left with her decapitated body, was killed for leaving comments on a local social networking site about a drug cartel, reports the Associated Press. This marks the third time this month that people were killed in the embattled region for things they said online.

    The victim, Marisol Macias Castaneda, is said to have worked as a newsroom manager for thePimera Hora newspaper, which covered the border town of Nuevo Laredo, located just across the US-Mexico border from Laredo, Texas, and about 160 miles Southwest of San Antonio.

  2. Build that wall and build it tall.

    Keep out Popeye Miguel and his fellow travelers. Si se puede !

  3. If we build that wall, Mexico may not pay for it, but they will end up doing with a lot less!

    We are at war with drug cartels from other countries and with drug cartel loving liberals here in the U.S. who benefit somehow.

    We need secure borders in order to have a safe and sovereign country.

    This is elementary!
