MADISON (WKOW) -- A man who allegedly ran over his son in reaction to a failed relationship with the boy's mother remains in the Dane County jail, with bail set at $1 million.
Thirty-year-old Jesus Castillo-Dimas made his initial appearance in Dane County court Friday on charges of first degree intentional homicide, attempted first degree intentional homicide, and two counts of attempting homicide with the use of a dangerous weapon.
Castillo-Dimas wore a special, suicide-prevention smock during the hearing, and listened to court statements through an interpreter.
According to a criminal complaint, a witness said Castillo-Dimas ran over his two-year-old son twice with an SUV, after vowing to get back at the child's mother, as he confronted her about their failed relationship, and her dating a new man. The complaint alleges Castillo-Dimas also stabbed Maria Castillo-Castillo and the man, until the man was able to subdue Castillo-Dimas. The crimes took place July 9 in the driveway of a housing complex near Red Arrow Trail in Fitchburg.
Castillo-Dimas attended Friday's court hearing, wearing a neck brace, with one foot in a cast, and using a wheelchair.
A court commissioner said even if the bail had not been set, Castillo-Dimas would remain in jail on an immigration detainer, as he is suspected of being in this country illegally.
The death of two year old Yandel Castillo-Castillo prompted neighborhood residents to stage a walk, and create a memorial for the child at the spot of the attack.
