North Chicago resident Trinidad Bueno-Sanchez died from injuries after three teenage girls dragged him from their car during an altercation over the sale of an iPhone. Now, the girls face charges of reckless homicide and robbery. One of the teens, Courtney Sherman (pictured), is 18. The other two are 17 and police say they will most likely be tried as adults.
The teens had planned on meeting Bueno-Sanchez after arranging to buy an iPhone from him over the Offer Up app for $450 dollars, according to People. When they eventually convened in person with the seller, they handed him an envelope that contained only a portion of the agreed-upon price. As an argument ensued (with part of Bueno-Sanchez hanging out of a car), the driver accelerated, causing Bueno-Sanchez to hit his head on the pavement. He died three days later.
“He met with them at the front door, he took what I call necessary precautions: doing this during daylight, in a well-populated area in front of the business,” said Round Lake Beach Police Chief Michael Scott.
It is currently unclear what their plea will be.
A GoFundMe page has since been established to help pay for Bueno-Sanchez's funeral costs. He is survived by his wife, seven children, and four grandchildren.
