Indiana lawyer T. Edward Page was murdered at his home by a client, Hobart, Ind., police said late last week.

The Chicago Tribune reported that  a client of Page’s, William Landske, has been charged in the murder.

Page, an attorney with Thiros & Thiros in Merrillville, worked as Lake County public defender for the last 10 years, Marce Gonzalez Jr., chief public defender, said. Page submitted his notice of retirement Tuesday and was planning to finish out the month, he said.

Earlier in the week, another lawyer, Stephen Shapiro of Illinois, was shot to death in a separate case. His brother-in-law is in custody in that case.
