Man charged in Don Carter Lanes homicides in Rockford has new lawyer
ROCKFORD — The man charged with fatally shooting three people and wounding three others Dec. 26 at Don Carter Lanes has a new lawyer.
Chicago attorney Damon Cheronis has been retained to represent Duke Webb, 37, of Shalimar, Florida, in Webb's murder trial.
Defense Attorney Elizabeth Bucko is expected to formally withdraw from the case on Friday when Webb is scheduled to be arraigned on first-degree murder charges.
Webb is accused of fatally shooting Thomas Furseth, 65, of Machesney Park and Jerome Woodfork, 69, and Dennis Steinhoff, 73, both of Rockford.
Webb is also charged with wounding three others including a 14-year-old boy, a 16-year-old girl and 62-year-old Tyrone Lewis.
