A parolee charged with killing a University of Illinois at Chicago honor student spotted her as she walked alone past a CTA Blue Line stop on campus early Saturday morning and grew angered when she ignored his repeated attempts to talk, Cook County prosecutors alleged Tuesday.
As Ruth George reached her car in a UIC parking garage, prosecutors said, Donald Thurman grabbed her around the neck from behind and put her in a chokehold. With his arm still wrapped around her neck, Thurman dragged an unconscious George to her car and threw her in the back seat, where he sexually assaulted her, prosecutors said.
At a bond hearing at the Leighton Criminal Court Building, Assistant States Attorney James Murphy said surveillance cameras captured Thurman following George into the parking garage. The two did not know each other, he said.
Investigators recovered a palm print from Georges car that matched Thurman and seized from Thurmans home a distinctive white jacket he was seen wearing in the video, Murphy said.
Thurman confessed to physically attacking and sexually assaulting George, though he denied having intercourse with her, according to the prosecutor.
Police also found a discarded condom in Georges car.
Judge Charles Beach II ordered that Thurman be held in custody without bail. He faces up to life in prison if convicted of first-degree murder and criminal sexual assault.
The Cook County medical examiners office has ruled that George, 19, died from strangulation.
In a statement released Tuesday morning, Georges mother, who asked not to be named, offered a brief but aching remembrance of her daughter, a UIC sophomore.

Murder suspect grew frustrated when UIC student didnt react to his catcalls, prosecutors allege
There’s only place for this savage , Death Row
LOL like that might happen in Illinois.
Thanks Tolerance Sucks Rocks.
I believe this pond scum only served 2 years of an armed robber sentence, which usually commands 10-15.
He got three years for armed robbery, while Blogovich gets 12 years for trying to sell a Senate seat.
Accused and victim are both of the ethic group involved in most Chicago killings.
Well cut my legs off and call me shorty! What a surprise!
So sad. An honor student killed by a piece of garbage.
Feral animal. Would love to pull the lever on this savage.
I would prefer attached to a tree limb by a short length of rope around his neck.
I pity anyone exposed to these savages; sounds like the victim was working towards bigger & better things. Prayers for her and her family.
Burn him alive.
I hope this animal rots in jail.
Animal. Wish she’d been carrying.
And if she had responded to his catcalls? He would have been angry that she’d led him on.
I hate stupid murderers most. For a few minutes of forced sex, or a short joy ride in a stolen car, or a little beer money, someone else has to lose her life, her family to live without her.
And the killer is caught in a few days, and his life ends in jail, and his family loses too, more the pity if there’s any good in them.
Stupid brain all impulse, all want now, no sense of consequences or empathy.
PAROLEE, why are these people who parole these animals not responsible in some way for releasing them into society
Why should anybody have to pay to keep this oxygen thief alive and his taxpayer provided attorney filing dozens of appeals over the next 30 years?
Unlike Hunter Biden, this guy used a Condom.
