A 29-year-old Channahon man has been arrested for allegedly beating his child to death.
The Channahon Police Department was called to Morris Hospital regarding a 10-week-old female child that had significant head trauma from a blunt force injury shortly after midnight on Monday, June 3.
Kora Middono, the 10-week-old child, was pronounced dead at Lurie’s Children Hospital in Chicago at 12:50 p.m. on June 3.
Investigators say evidence shows Kora sustained her injuries while living with her parents at the Crest Hill Inn in Crest Hill in early June.
This comes after the couple moved from Channahon to Crest Hill in late May.
The child’s father, Jonathon Middono, was charged with Aggravated Battery to a Child and transported to the Will County Jail.
The Channahon Police Department, Crest Hill Police Department, Illinois Department of Children and Family Services and Will County’s State’s Attorney’s Office continue to investigate the case, which could lead to more charges being filed in the future.
