Charges on Antonio Monroe

“Upon arrival, officers located the child and began administering CPR,” the officers said. “The Rockford Fire Department arrived on the scene and transported the girl to a local hospital where she was pronounced deceased.” A police officer along with his K9 found another man at the scene. He allegedly matched the suspect’s description.

“The male, later identified as Antonio Monroe, was taken into custody after a brief struggle,” the officers wrote. “He was taken to a local hospital for an unrelated issue and, upon release, Monroe will be transported to the Winnebago County Jail.” Monroe “was not very forthcoming” when he met the officers, the chief said.

He is charged with first degree murder, attempted murder, aggravated assault/strangulation, and two counts of kidnapping. Sex offender records show that he sexually assaulted a 19-year-old in Peoria County when he was 31. The charge was criminal sexual assault/force. Rockford Mayor Tom McNamara called it “a real-life nightmare with a real-life monster.”


“From the moment my phone rang yesterday regarding this incident, my stomach has been in knots,” Redd told reporters. “I met with mom yesterday. My deepest condolences to that family. No one wants to get a knock on the door and hear from the police that their child has been murdered. Especially an innocent child. 10 years, seemingly doing nothing and definitely not deserving of such a heinous crime.”

She thanked the witness for pointing the finger at the officers. A reporter asked about what happened before the incident. The chief was vague about the ongoing investigation, but he said there was “some conversation that took place before the horrific event.” Officers did not identify the slain child. His sister was treated and released, the chief said.Read More………
