Raymond Harris Stole Murdered Nurse's Wedding Ring To Propose To His Girlfriend, Prosecutors Say (VIDEO) A suburban Chicago parolee charged in the beating death of a longtime nurse allegedly stole the woman's wedding and engagement rings in order to propose to his girlfriend. Raymond Harris, 36, of Carpentersville, Ill.was charged Thursday with first-degree murder and robbery in the death of Virginia Perillo, 73, of the 3300 block of South Parnell Avenue, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. Perillo was found unresponsive, lying face down in her garage by a neighbor in the Chicago's Bridgeport neighborhood on Oct. 22. She had sustained serious blows to the head and never regained consciousness after she was taken to John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital in critical condition. She died the following day. In court, prosecutors said Harris, who was paroled earlier this year after he served 13 years of a 30-year prison sentence on attempted murder and aggravated arson convictions, attended a party after attacking Perillo and was seen wearing "brand new clothes" and showing off new rings which he used later that night to propose to his girlfriend, according to the Chicago Tribune. Perillo's family reportedly confirmed that rings being worn by Harris' fiance belonged to the victim. He deserves the death penalty.
