Victim's 14-year-old daughter testifies at Hinsdale murder trial

The daughter of a slain Hinsdale woman testified Thursday as the murder trial of suspect Dominic Sanders of Chicago entered its third day.

The girl, now 14, testified that she had slept the night before the May 4, 2017, slaying in her mother’s bed, as she often did, because her own bed was covered in stuffed animals.

She was familiar with where her mother, Andrea Urban, kept her jewelry — including two family-heirloom rings that authorities say Sanders pawned — in the back of a cabinet compartment in a bedroom dresser, behind other items such as a bag of socks.

Sanders is accused of beating Urban and slashing her throat, using one of her kitchen knives.
