- Bryant Brewer was found guilty Tuesday of killing Chicago Police Officer Thor Soderberg five years ago.
Brewer was found guilty of several charges, including first degree murder of a police officer by Cook County Judge Tim Joyce after a bench trial that started last week at the George Leighton Criminal Courthouse.
Brewer will be sentenced Sept. 9, according to the Cook County state’s attorney’s office. Brewer’s public defender could not be reached late Tuesday.
Soderberg’s widow, Jennifer Loudon, said after court that Brewer won’t be able to hurt anyone else. “Speaking for widows everywhere, it doesn’t take away the pain. It doesn’t erase the difficulty of going on with life,”
RIP Officer Soderberg. A small measure of peace to the family.
