DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert B. Berlin and West Chicago Chief of Police Colin Fleury have announced that bond has been set for a West Chicago man charged with attempting to suffocate his mother to death with a pillow while she slept. Bryan Jones, 39, appeared at a bond hearing in front of Judge Michael Reidy, who set bond at $500,000 with 10 percent to apply.

Jones has been charged with one count of attempted first-degree murder (Class X felony), one count of aggravated domestic battery (Class 2 felony) and one count of aggravated battery (Class 3 felony).

On Dec. 22, officers with the West Chicago Police Department responded to a medical assistance call on Arbor Avenue. Upon their arrival, officers found Jones and his mother at the residence. It is alleged that at approximately 3:22 a.m., Jones entered his mother’s bedroom while she was sleeping, placed a large pillow over her face and held it there. The victim was able to free herself and called police. Jones was taken into custody at this time.

“The allegations against Mr. Jones are very disturbing,” Berlin said. “We are all grateful that the victim in this case was able to free herself and contact authorities before it was too late.”

Jones’ next court appearance is scheduled Jan. 6 for arraignment in front of Judge Reidy.
