Man sentenced to 40 years for attempted murder of ex-wife
An Orland Park man was sentenced to two consecutive 20-year prison sentences Wednesday for attempting to murder his ex-wife when he stabbed her 4 times in a public park in Rochelle.
Jamil Saleh, 42, showed no reaction when Ogle County Judge Mike Mallon read the sentences following the hour-long sentencing hearing. Saleh's sister, one of 4 family members present at the hearing, wept quietly following Mallon's decision.
"I am pleased with the sentence that the court imposed," said assistant state's attorney Mike Rock. "It's an appropriate sentence for the crime that was committed and the fact that the defendant showed no remorse."
