Chicago Man Kills Nurse, Uses Wedding Rings to Propose to Girlfriend (Video)

Raymond Harris, 36, is a violent career criminal charged with first degree murder in the beating death of an elderly nurse whose wedding rings he stole and used to proposed to girlfriend.

Chicago is again in the news with a diabolical fiend preying on elderly women for their wedding rings.  This is exactly the type of crimes that give ex-convicts a bad name.  They come out and try to rebuild their lives, but some come out only to take others.

Raymond Harris, 36, attacked 73-year old nurse, Virginia Perillo, and killed her in her garage.  According to Chicago Tribune, the woman was beaten in her head until she was unresponsive.  He robbed her as she was getting out of her car.  He also took her wedding rings off her finger.  He then went to a party and showed off the wedding rings before proposing to his girlfriend with them.  How sick is that?  Perillo never recovered from the beating and Harris will be charged with first degree murder and armed robbery. 

Harris is a parolee that has a vicious criminal history.  In 1997, he was sentenced to 30 years for raping and beating a woman then setting her house on fire.  Obviously, he got out early.  He only served 16 years of the sentence.  Records also showed that he was convicted in 1993 and given six years for armed robbery.  Another sentence he didn’t complete.

This animal should never see the light of day again.  Check out the report below and also read the full story here.
