Police uncover Sycamore man’s violent recordings

Accused of 5th violation of order to stay away from wife

Crime Mugs, Sept. 2013

SYCAMORE – A 62-year-old former DeKalb man accused of stalking his estranged wife was arrested this week after police found voice recordings on his phone in which he talked of killing her, court records show.

Glenn Ouellette, whose address is listed as a Sycamore motel in court records, was charged Tuesday with a fifth violation of a court order prohibiting him from having contact with his estranged wife, records show.

The order of protection was issued in March, records show. Prosecutors charged Ouellette with aggravated stalking April 10 after the county’s electronic home monitoring technicians found him near her work or home seven times in a day. Aggravated stalking is punishable by probation or 2 to 5 years in prison.

On Wednesday, he remained in DeKalb County Jail unable to post 10 percent of his $500,000 bond. If he is released on bail, Ouellette would return to the electronic home monitoring program. He is expected to appear in court today.

Ouellette’s attorney, James Buck, declined to comment.

Ouellette allegedly called his estranged wife Tuesday to tell her his computer was broken and he was having software sent to her home, court records show.

Police later made contact with Ouellette and searched his phone, where they found 54 voice recordings that were not sent to his wife but were made as if he were speaking to her, court records show. They were made between Sunday and Tuesday.

In some of the recordings, Ouellette talked of killing the woman and made other threats.

“You’re a beautiful woman, but that’s not how you’re going to end your days,” he said in one recording, according to court records. “Not when I get to you.”

On April 9, after the third alleged violation of an order of protection, Presiding Judge Robbin Stuckert required Ouellette to participate in electronic monitoring as a condition of his bond, court records show. The next day, Ouellette went into prohibited areas seven times between 9:30 and 11:45 a.m., court records show. He told police he was hoping to catch a glimpse of her.

He was released on electronic home monitoring to attend in-patient alcohol treatment and ordered not to consume alcohol, records show. When he was charged with his fourth case of violating an order of protection July 30, he appeared intoxicated, court records show.
