A Rogers Park man is charged in the murder of a woman who had taken out an order of protection against him. William Caponegri, 49, allegedly strangled Karen Salvino, 52, in his Rogers Park apartment the morning of Sunday Aug. 15th. “In a video statement to police, Caponegri admitted that he put his hand on the victim’s throat and she wouldn’t shut up so he kept on choking her.”
Meet at the corner of Glenwood and Northshore Ave. (the 6700 block of Glenwood) this Thursday August 26th at 6pm.
Participants will tie purple ribbons on trees in the neighborhood to signify the people who are murdered each year at the hands of their current or past intimate partners. After the ribbons are tied, we will hold a vigil to remember Karen Salvino.
