A Joliet woman is scheduled to appear in a Will County courtroom Wednesday for the murder of her roommate.
It is believed to be the first time since 2009 that a ward of the State of Illinois has been arrested for murder.
Sources say Kadiedra Speed was adopted by parents who ended up abusing her.
And she spent time in psychiatric hospitals.
Court records show she got in several fights in her teens.
And lived in four homes in five years. Most recently, in Joliet.
