Courts

Man sentenced to 3 years for harassment

MATTHEW LEBLANC | The Journal Gazette

A Fort Wayne man accused of using software to pose as someone else to harass and stalk at least two people was sentenced to three years in prison Tuesday in Allen Superior Court.

Glen M. Dillion, 29, used spoofing software to take on different identities, according to court documents. A probable cause affidavit said one email was sent from a company with a server in Russia.

Messages sent included photos of dead or mutilated children, court documents said. A woman told investigators Dillion slashed the tires on her car and the locks on her home were glued shut.

He pleaded guilty in April to stalking, two counts of intimidation and two counts of identity deception.  

Trial set in killing of Meijer clerk

A trial date of Sept. 17 was set Tuesday in Allen Superior Court for a man charged with shooting to death a store clerk on Thanksgiving night.

Victor Rivera, 22, is charged with murder, felony murder, robbery resulting in serious bodily injury and a firearms enhancement in the death of Jacob Walerko, 25, at the Meijer station on Lima Road. Felony murder is one committed in the act of another felony, including robbery.
