    It hasn't been a comfortable stay in jail for Adam R. Landerman as he awaits trial on double murder charges.

    A Joliet, Illinois, man awaiting trial on murder charges isn't happy with the conditions at the jail he's staying in.

    The Chicago Tribune reported that Adam Landerman, 21, has filed a 15-count complaint asking a judge to fix conditions at the Will County Adult Detention Facility ranging from tiny towels, a lack of variety with the food, poor temperature control, the lack of a barber and high-priced items in the commissary.

    Landerman, the son of a Joliet police sergeant, is one of four people accused of luring Terrance Rankins and Eric Glover to a house last year, robbing and strangling them and then playing video games until police arrived.

    Landerman's complaint cites jail standards from the Illinois administrative code to argue his case, according to the newspaper.

    He also criticizes the jail for not providing breakfast after 6:30 a.m. and for serving lunch too early.

    Will County Sheriff’s Deputy Chief Ken Kaupas told the Tribune that inmates are treated fairly and that it's not a hotel.

    Alisa R. Massaro, 20; Bethany L. McKee, 20; and Joshua F. Miner, 26, are also charged with of first-degree murder in the case. All four are being held on $10 million bail.
