CHICAGO — A woman accused of fatally stabbing a high school teacher in Chicago last week traveled through Whitley County on U.S. 30.

Alisha Walker, 20, has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of Alan Filan, 61, a teacher at Brother Rice High School in southwest Chicago.

After slaying Filan in Ohio, police say Walker traveled on U.S. 30 back toward her hometown, Akron, Ohio.

Walker was caught in Fort Wayne Saturday in a hotel room.
