Chicago area readies first televised court hearing

Nearly two decades after the nation watched O.J. Simpson struggle to put on the famous glove, Chicago television viewers will get their first opportunity Wednesday to see a criminal defendant stand before a local courtroom judge.

 Judge Robert Kleeman ruled Tuesday to allow one television camera and one still camera in his DuPage County courtroom for the first live broadcast of legal proceedings in the Chicago area. A suburban Chicago woman was expected to enter a plea Wednesday in the stabbing deaths of her 7-year-old son and a 5-year-old girl she was babysitting.

 Prosecutors say the woman, Elzbieta Plackowska, stabbed her son about 100 times and girl 50 times, at least partly out of anger at her husband.
