Man pleads guilty to running over ex-girlfriend in shopping mall parking lot
DuPage County prosecutors have agreed to recommend Jose Aguirre be sentenced to no more than 23 years.
Several days before he ran her over in a Yorktown Center parking lot in Lombard, Jose Aguirre texted his ex-girlfriend -- the mother of his son -- to tell her “My son’s going to be left alone. You are going to die this week, (expletive).”
