Murder Trial For Fox Lake Man Postponed

The jury trial for a Fox Lake murder suspect has been postponed until October so the defendant’s lawyer can recover from surgery she is having next month. Laverne Ware Jr.’s lawyer, Donna Kuchler, told a Dodge County judge this week that it will take her six weeks to recover from surgery. The two-week trial had been scheduled to begin on April 9th. The 37-year-old Ware is suspected of killing his girlfriend Sesalie Dixon in December of 2016. Her body was found in the cab of Ware’s pickup truck parked inside a garage in Fox Lake. The judge granted the postponement with reluctance.
