Woman still waiting in Illinois jail for murder trial date

CHICAGO — Nearly two years after her arrest, a Crystal Falls woman accused of killing her husband in Illinois in 1979 is still waiting for a trial date to be set.

Jacquelyn Greco, 68, is in the Cook County Jail on a first-degree murder charge. She had a status hearing Wednesday. Her next court date is another status hearing on May 6th.

Greco was arrested in April 2013 for the April 1979 murder of her husband, Carl Gaimari, in Inverness, Illinois. Two men entered the family home, tied up Greco and three of the couple’s children, and shot and killed Gaimari when he returned home from work.

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s office accuses Greco of planning the incident. Investigators have said Greco was having an affair at the time and told at least one other person that her husband would be killed in a home invasion.
