$500,000 Bail Set in Chicago DUI Fatality

Cecil Conner, 22, is charged with four counts of aggravated DUI for the 3:15 a.m. crash Monday morning which led to the death of his girlfriend’s five-year-old child. The mother, Kathie LaFond, was originally driving the car when she was pulled over at 2:35 a.m. in Cook County for failing to use a turn signal. She was then arrested for driving on a suspended license. Allegedly, the officer gave the keys to Conner who then crashed the car into a tree on Steger Road in Will County. The young boy was in seated in a booster seat in the back at the time of the crash. It has been reported that Conner’s BAC was .208, well over twice the legal limit. Traces of marijuana were also found in his system. Conner’s bail was set at $500,000. Prosecutors must now determine what took place during the 40 minute period between the initial stop and the crash.
