Yang has a civil court record that includes a divorce, orders of protection and a federal sexual harassment lawsuit against a popular Chicago night club.
Before her arrest on March 3, Yang used a number of websites to sell herself professionally, as well as personally. She is on the professional site Linked-In, where she calls herself an aggressive, sophisticated and knowledgeable real estate agent. On the dating website Fitness Singles, Yang said she loves adventure and has a great sense of humor as well as classic beauty.
Now, the 41-year-old is making headlines online for the murder Reuter. The motive, according to Lake County State's Attorney Michael Waller, was jealousy.
" ," said Waller on Wednesday.
Police said Yang was jealous of Reuters's relationship with former Chicago Bear Shaun Gayle, with whom she was having a child. Yang is the mother of three children. She was divorced in 1997. Her attorney told ABC7 there was nothing unusual about Yang's divorce from Ten Yang. However, court records show a year later, Yang obtained a court order of protection against a man who took out one against her a month later.
In 2002, Yang sought another order of protection against a different man.
While Yang worked as a real estate agent, she moonlit as a 'shot girl' at the popular Excalibur Night Club in Chicago's River North neighborhood.
Court records show she filed a sex discrimination case against the club in 2001. The complaint was denied by the EEOC. Yang then filed a federal lawsuit against Excalibur, alleging sexual harassment. The case was later dismissed by a federal judge.
Gayle has said he knows Yang because she is a real estate agent. Her office is listed in Skokie, but the address is a residential two-flat. According to Multiple Listing Service (MLS), Yang had a handful of listings, many of which are on the city's South Side.
