CRYSTAL FALLS – A Crystal Falls woman is facing a cold case murder charge out of Cook County, Illinois.

Jacquelyn R. Greco, 66, appeared in Iron County Trial Court on Thursday for an extradition hearing in the matter.

No details about the murder were immediately available, except that it occurred in 1979 in Cook County.

Greco and her attorney Geoffrey Lawrence opted to fight the extradition process.

Cook County authorities will now need to obtain an extradition warrant before they can take her into custody.

A review date for the case has been scheduled for May 6 in Iron County Trial Court.

Judge C. Joseph Schwedler decided to deny bond in the case, since he felt that it would be Cook County authorities’ duty to set bond.

Greco will remain incarcerated at the Iron County Jail.
