CHICAGO – A 52-year-old Chicago man charged in the shooting deaths of his two roommates has been ordered held without bail.
Michael Myrieckes faces first-degree murder charges in the deaths of 49-year-old Lori Inman and 68-year-old Avelino Sanchez. They were found 9:30 p.m. Friday.
Myrieckes appeared in bond court Sunday. Attempts to reach him for comment were unsuccessful.
The Cook County medical examiner's office says the two victims died from shotgun wounds to the chest. Sanchez was also shot in the neck.
Police say officers were called to the scene Friday by a friend of Myrieckes. When they arrived he refused to come out of the house, triggering a hostage-barricade situation.
Chicago police spokesman Hector Alfaro says Myrieckes eventually surrendered. After he was arrested, Sanchez and Inman were found inside.
