Chicago – Robert Lyons won’t be attending an Avril Lavigne show for decades after a DuPage County jury convicted him of murdering his mother because she wouldn’t arrange tickets for him to one of the pop star’s concerts.
Lyons, 39, faces 20 years to life in prison when he is sentenced for beating and then fatally stabbing Linda Bolek in 2008 in the Carol Stream condo they shared.
Jurors deliberated for barely two hours Wednesday before convicting Lyons of first-degree murder in the brutal slaying, rejecting claims by Lyons’ attorneys that the killing was unintentional.
