About 3:30 p.m. May 4, 2017, Hinsdale police responded to a 911 call about an unresponsive woman, identified as Urban, in a house in the 700 block of Town Place. Upon their arrival at the home, officers found Urban lying on the kitchen floor with apparent knife injuries to her head and neck.
An investigation found that in the morning hours of May 4, 2017, Sanders entered Urban's house. Once inside the home, a physical altercation between Sanders and Urban ensued resulting in Sanders repeatedly striking Urban in the head and slashing her throat, authorities said. After the murder, Sanders stole family heirloom jewelry from the house and left. On May 25, 2017, Sanders was taken into custody and arrested on an unrelated Will County traffic violation.
After a nine-day trial in January, a jury found Sanders guilty of first-degree murder, home invasion and residential burglary.
