Daughters of Slain Chicago Woman Sue Estate of Accused Murderer

CHICAGO (AP) – The daughters of a suburban Chicago woman slain in 2019 are suing the estate of their mother’s accused killer, who died from COVID-19 while awaiting trial.

The wrongful death lawsuit filed last month in Cook County seeks damages in excess of $75,000 from the estate of Anthony Prate for the death of 48-year-old Malgorzata “Margaret” Daniel.

Prate was charged with first-degree murder after Daniel was fatally stabbed nearly 30 times in her Schaumburg apartment in November 2019 at a dinner party.

The Northwest Herald reported that Prate was out of jail on $300,000 cash bail when he contracted COVID-19 and died in December at age 57 at a hospital.
