$3M Bond Set for Man Who Struck, Killed Ill. C.O.

July 23, 2012  | 

Bond was set Saturday at $3 million for a Little Village man with a history of DUIs who was charged with reckless homicide for the deadly hit and run accident that claimed the life of a Cook County correctional officer.

Juan Bello, 57, was also charged with leaving the scene of an accident and was cited for failing to yield to a pedestrian, driving too fast for conditions, and driving on a revoked license.

Nikkii Bostic-Jones, 37, was thrown onto the road and pinned under a sheriff's car when she was hit by Bello's van as she crossed the street outside the Cook County jail on her way to work late Wednesday night, authorities said.

This pos should never see the light of day again. He MURDERED an Officer as sure as if he used a gun. My condolences to Officer Bostic-Jones family and her fellow Officers.
