Bond Set at $1 Million for Warrenville Woman Accused of Murder
DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin and Warrenville Chief of Police Raymond Turano announced today that bond has been set for a Warrenville woman charged with the murder of her daughter’s father, thirty-one-year-old Joseph Strock. Deanna Coakley, 27 (d.o.b. 07/6/1994) of the 31000 block of Village Green Court, appeared at a bond hearing this morning in front of Judge Daniel Guerin who set bond at $1 million with 10% to apply. Coakley has been charged with one count of First-Degree Murder.
On February 13, 2022, at approximately 6:51 p.m., Warrenville police officers responded to a call at Coakley’s residence for a report of a woman screaming. Upon their arrival, officers found Coakley on top of a male, later identified as Strock, near the front of the residence directly in front of the door. Strock was bleeding from the neck and a large pool of blood was under his body. Strock was transported to a local hospital for a laceration to the right side of his neck and was pronounced deceased. Following an investigation by the Warrenville Police Department, it is alleged that at some point in the evening, a verbal altercation between Coakley and Strock turned physical at which time Coakley stabbed Strock in the neck with a kitchen knife. Allegedly, following the stabbing by Coakley, Strock exited the apartment and collapsed on the ground outside the front door where authorities found him.
“Nationwide, domestic violence remains a silent epidemic that unfortunately occurs predominantly behind closed doors. If left unchecked however, the consequences can be deadly, as is alleged in this case. I urge anyone who finds themselves in an abusive relationship to seek help from any of a multitude of social service programs available throughout the country that offer assistance and guidance to people in an abusive relationship. I offer my sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Joseph Strock on their loss. I thank the Warrenville Police Department and DuPage County MERIT for their work on this very sad case. I also thank Assistant State’s Attorney Cathy DeLaMar for her efforts in securing a strong prosecution against this defendant.”
— DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin
“I am extremely pleased that through the hard work and professionalism of the Warrenville Police Department, DuPage County MERIT and the DuPage County Coroner’s Office, we were able to bring a successful resolution to this tragic incident. I also commend State’s Attorney Bob Berlin and his office for their legal guidance throughout the entire investigation.”
— Warrenville Chief of Police Raymond Turano
Coakley’s next court appearance is scheduled for March 10, 2022, for arraignment in front of Judge Guerin.
Members of the public are reminded that this complaint contains only charges and is not proof of the defendant’s guilt. A defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the government’s burden to prove his or her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
