In a surprise twist, Cook County prosecutors charged Thursday that the killing of Associate Judge Raymond Myles had been hatched weeks ago as a plot to rob his girlfriend, not to target the judge.

At a bond hearing for the first suspect charged in the shooting, prosecutors said the gunman had been tracking the movements of Myles’ girlfriend for two to three weeks to learn her schedule.

Joshua T. Smith, identified by authorities as the getaway driver, gave a videotaped statement to detectives in which he said his partner decided to lay in wait for the girlfriend before 5 a.m. Monday after observing she regularly left the judge’s Far South Side house to work out early in the morning, according to prosecutors.

The gunman confronted the woman by the back garage of the judge’s two-story brick residence, shooting her in the left thigh and snatching her gym bag. Apparently hearing the gunfire, Myles, 66, emerged on the rear porch and confronted the gunman. He was shot fives times and killed. His girlfriend, 52, is expected to survive.
