SPRINGFIELD — The Illinois Prisoner Review Board denied parole to a 79-year-old inmate sentenced to life in prison for the killings of three suburban Chicago women at Starved Rock State Park. They voted 7-7 Thursday on Chester Weger’s request, leaving him short of the needed majority vote for his release. Weger has continued to deny he killed Lillian Oetting, 50, Mildred Lindquist, 50, and Frances Murphy, 47 in St Louis Canyon on March 14th of 1960.
