Bail set $ 5 million on Thursday morning for each of the 5-year-old Andrew AJ Freund’s parents, who were charged with murder hours after the authorities found what they believe is the Crystal Lake boy’s body in a grave near Woodstock.

JoAnn Cunningham and Andrew Freund both face several accusations in the boy’s death, reported missing by their father a week ago. The two had peasant rallies on Thursday morning at McHenry County Prison, with Cunningham being the first and first ordered holding the $ 5 million bail, for which they each would have to post a 10 percent bond.

Each respondent was taken separately for hearing. They both had orange trousers, a shirt and shoes issued by the prison. Cunningham was visibly pregnant for seven months. She shook her head from side to side and seemed to hold back tears when the charges were read and then dried her eyes. Freund grabbed the podium and then stood with his hands clasped behind or in front of him during the hearing but showed no feeling.

A prosecutor argued in court that Freund and Cunningham forced the boy into a cold shower for a long time and beat him.

Freund and Cunningham were accused of first-degree murders, exacerbated batteries, exacerbated domestic batteries and failure to report a missing child or childhood. Freund was also obliged to hide a homicidal death.

Judge Mark Gerhardt told both parents: “These are serious claims.” Spectators could not hear much of what the lawyer said because of faulty microphones in the small court, where the gallery is separated from the court by windows.

The murder charge is punished by 20 to 60 years of imprisonment, which can be extended to life in prison under certain circumstances, the judge said. The next court date for the defendants was set on Monday.

“To see what kind of people would do such a thing for children. It’s just awful,” said Patti Kokonas, a Crystal Lake resident who attended the hearing.

“I don’t know what people are thinking. … I do not feel sorry for them, “Kokonas announced.

She criticized the role of the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services, which originally took custody of AJ after he was born with opiates in his system but then returned to the boy his mother

The agency later investigated two allegations of parental negligence, despite the police reporting regrettable living conditions in the house, including dog feces and urine throughout, broken windows and floors and an extended power outage, and a bruise on the AJ accused of the family dog, the government officials accused were unreasonable and allowed the parents to hold AJ.

Freund and Cunningham reported AJ lacking April 1

8. They told the police that AJ was last set at bedtime – at 21:00 – April 17. When they woke up on April 18, they said they did not find him and report it.
