A 28-year-old Alton man accused of causing injuries that killed a 4-month-old infant in February is seeking a bond reduction.
Court records indicate that Edgar Reyes is scheduled for a hearling Monday afternoon where he’ll seek a reduction in his $1,251,000 in bonds.
Reyes is charged with capital murder of a person under 10-years-old, injury to a child and failure to identify/give false information.
Investigators began looking into Reyes after responding to a Mission hospital in reference to the injured child who suffered head trauma, according to a news release.
Alton police reported that Reyes is the boyfriend of the child’s mother.
According to police, Reyes provided a statement regarding his involvement in the case before he was arrested.
