A man was released on a $350,000 bond after being charged with committing a home invasion in Fox Lake and beating a victim with a bat, leaving them injured, court records show.
Michael P. Kilday, 47, of Johnsburg, was charged with two counts of home invasion, two counts of aggravated battery and one count of criminal trespass to residence.
An information warrant filed in Lake County Circuit Court alleges Kilday committed the home invasion on June 11.
The incident occurred at a residence in the 8100 block of Honeysuckle Court in Fox Lake.
The warrant said Kilday entered into the dwelling, which was occupied, while armed with a bat.
Kilday allegedly intentionally caused an injury to a male resident of the home, the warrant said.
Kilday struck the victim with the bat, causing the man to suffer great bodily harm, the warrant said.
The most serious charge against Kilday is home invasion, which is a Class X felony that carries six to 30 years in prison if convicted.
The case was investigated by the Fox Lake Police Department and the state’s attorney’s office approved charges in early December, court records show.
An arrest warrant was issued for Kilday carrying a $300,000 bond.
Kilday was taken into custody on December 27 and processed at the Lake County Jail.
He was released the same day after posting $30,000 cash, or 10%, of his bond.
A status of attorney hearing is scheduled for January 17.
