    Ex-Proviso West football star fit to stand trial for murder
    Hubert 'Boo Boo' Thompson is accused of killing neighbor he thought was poisoning him

    June 30, 2009

    By DAN ROZEK Staff Reporter
    A former Proviso West High School football star, charged with killing his neighbor because he believed the man was secretly poisoning him, was deemed mentally fit today to stand trial in the 2007 killing.

    Two doctors who examined Hubert "Boo Boo" Thompson concluded that the 30-year-old is fit for trial, as long as he takes his prescribed medications.

    The psychological report presented in DuPage County court today could clear the way for the 6-foot 6-inch, 280-pound Thompson to stand trial later this year for the killing of 66-year-old James Malone. Thompson is accused of hurling Malone off a third-floor balcony in their Lombard apartment building because he believed Malone was poisoning him,

    When he starred at Proviso West in the 1990s, Thompson was described as one of the best high school football players in the country. He also was an all-state wrestler and track star at the school. He played one year of college football but never made it in the NFL.

    Thompson is being held in the DuPage County Jail.
