Man convicted of brutal Winnetka murder seeks new sentence – NBC Chicago

The man convicted of murdering a young couple and their unborn child in Winnetka more than 30 years ago is back in Cook County courts, seeking a new sentence for the crime that shocked and terrified the North Shore.

Nancy and Richard Langert were brutally murdered in a Winnetka townhouse on April 7, 1990, with police at the time calling it an “execution.”

“The last thing she did, 25, was lean on her elbows next to her husband, and she took his hand in her own blood and she drew on the floor, last message, in blood , she said I love you. A heart and a U. I love you. And that’s how she died,” Nancy Langert’s sister Jennifer Bishop-Jenkins recalled.

David Biro, then a 16-year-old New Trier High School student, was eventually charged with the murders, and fellow students said he boasted about the crimes.

Biro was convicted of home invasion, murder, and intentional homicide of an unborn child in 1991, and received three life sentences.

Armed with the 2013 U.S. Supreme Court decision, Miller v. Alabama, which ordered a re-sentencing of juveniles with mandatory life sentences, Biro, now 48, is seeking a new sentence. And Bishop-Jenkins says she is experiencing tragedy again.

“He’s a predatory killer,” she said. “To continually have to reconnect with this man for the rest of his life, now that both my parents have passed away, that is now my fight. And it is one that I will wear proudly and lovingly until the day I die if I have to. But I would really rather not have to do that.”

A Cook County judge is scheduled to rule on the Biro case on April 29.
