CHICAGO – Indonesian court documents show that a man convicted in the murder of a Chicago woman in Bali arrived on the resort island hours before the killing and checked into a resort using her credit card.
The Chicago Tribune (http://trib.in/1NIFIC4 ) reports that the translated documents recently were made public in a Cook County court.
Sheila von Wiese-Mack's body was found stuffed inside a suitcase in a taxi at the resort last August. Weise-Mack's 19-year-old daughter, Heather Mack, and the daughter's 21-year-old boyfriend, Tommy Schaefer, have been convicted in her killing.
Schaefer admitted to repeatedly striking Von Wiese-Mack with a fruit bowl, claiming self-defense, and was sentenced to 18 years in prison. Mack is serving 10 years for assisting.
Stella, the couple's baby girl, was born in prison in March.
