Man charged in the shooting death of a judge in Chicago

A 37-year-old man has been charged in the killing of a judge who handled criminal cases, as police say that robbery was the motive.

Joshua Smith was charged in the shooting death earlier this week of 66-year-old Associate Cook County Circuit Judge Raymond Myles.

The deadly shooting happened early Monday morning outside Myles' home on Chicago's South Side.

Police say his 52-year-old girlfriend was also shot in the leg, but is expected to survive. Her name has not been released because police say she is a witness in the killing.

The Cook County state's attorney's office said Wednesday that Smith is the alleged getaway driver and that he was charged with first-degree murder, attempted murder, aggravated battery with a firearm and armed robbery.
