Judge: Dad held in murder of son's grandparents, uncle won't be given child visitation in jail (Willow Springs, Illinois)

Thank you Judge Daniel Guerin for having the decency and common sense to just say NO to dad JOHNNY BORIZOV.

Borizov is accused in a murder-for-hire scheme that resulted in the death of his son's maternal grandparents and uncle. It is said that the mother was also targeted, but managed to hide in a closet. True to form for an abusive father, Borizov had been hassling the mother about child custody before the triple murders.

Then to show what a self-centered entitled freak he is, he demands that his 3-year-old son be forced to visit him in jail. Oh yea, dragging a preschooler into jail is really showing love and concern for his well being, isn't it? Especially forcing him to have contact with the man accused of arranging the murders of three of his family members.

You don't have to be a genius to see the real intent here. And that's just further tormenting and harrassing the little boy's mother. But now Daddy is using the legal system to continue his coercive control tactics. This is classic abuse by proxy.

As if the mother hasn't suffered enough.

Man held in slaying of girlfriend's family can't see son

A Willow Springs man charged with the murders of three members of his ex-girlfriend's family has been denied permission to have his 2-year-old son visit him in jail.

"I don't think you have to be an expert in child psychology to understand it is not the best situation for a 2-year-old child to go into the jail, no matter how well the deputies handle the situation," DuPage County Judge Daniel Guerin said. "There is just no compelling reason to allow it."

Johnny Borizov, 28, of Willow Springs, has been charged with the murders of three members of the Kramer family in their Darien home. He is accused of soliciting and planning the murders with Jacob Nodarse, 24, of Countryside, who is accused of actually committing the murders. Both men are being held without bail in the DuPage County Jail.

Since Borizov's arrest, there has been an order from Guerin that the defendant is to have no contact with any member of the Kramer family, including his son, Nicholas, whose mother is Angela Kramer, Borizov's ex-girlfriend.

Defense attorney Nicholas Kirkeles said that Borizov's parents have tried unsuccessfully in recent months to see the child, but have been consistently denied permission by Angela Kramer.

Kirkeles said his real goal is to allow the defendant's parents to visit with the child, but that since state law regarding grandparents visitation rights are unclear, he asked for his client to be able to visit with the child in the county jail, in hopes of the Kramer family allowing the grandparents' visits as well.

"It is in the best interest of the child for his to have contact with his father," Kirkeles said. "There is no physical threat to the child while he is in jail. The visit would take place behind glass with a deputy present."

Assistant State's Attorney Joseph Ruggiero said, "Such a visit would be a nightmare. You want to talk about psychological damage. Borizov is charged with killing the child's grandmother, grandfather and uncle, and he faces a possible life sentence. The danger is obvious."

Ruggiero said Angela Kramer was prepared to come to court and argue against the visit if it would have been necessary.

Kirkeles said Borizov's family is considering appealing today's ruling. No member of the defendant's family has seen the child since the incident.

Jeffrey and Lori Kramer and their 20-year-old son, Mike, were shot to death after being stirred from their sleep on March 2. Angela Kramer, 25, survived after dialing 911 while hiding in a closet in the home in the Tara Hills subdivision. Her older brother and Mike Kramer's teenage girlfriend also escaped the house unharmed.

Borizov's criminal attorneys have said authorities lack any evidence against Borizov, who was seen on video gambling at a Joliet riverboat at the time of the killings, other than statements from Nodarse.

Neither has a violent criminal record. Prosecutors are not seeking the death penalty against the men, who face potential life sentences if convicted.
