Johnny Borizov, the Willow Springs man charged in connection with the March murder of three members of a Darien family, appeared in court Tuesday requesting visitation rights with his 21-month-old son.
Borizov, 28, is accused of conspiring to have Jacob Nodarse, 24, of Countryside, kill Angela Kramer, the mother of Borizov's child. Officials said Nodarse entered Kramer's home through a window on March 2, and shot and killed Kramer's parents and brother. Kramer survived by hiding in a closet and dialing 911.
Borizov's attorneys filed a motion about three weeks ago seeking visitation rights for Borizov with his son, according to attorney Nicholas Kirkeles.
Assistant State's Attorney Joseph Ruggiero told DuPage County Circuit Court Judge Daniel Guerin on Tuesday prosecutors object to Borizov's motion and will file a response in court Dec. 16, according to State's Attorney's Office spokesman Paul Darrah. The motion to dismiss Borizov's request also will be argued during that court date.
Borizov's son spent a significant amount of time with Borizov's parents before the murders, Kirkeles said. Borizov's parents also have been denied contact with the child.
"The last thing Johnny wants is to bring the child to visit him through a glass window, but we have no other alternative," Kirkeles said. "We would gladly substitute any visitation rights with him for visitation with the grandparents."
