A murder suspect who eluded Kenosha County authorities for two weeks is unlikely to be released from of jail anytime soon.
A Kenosha County judge on Wednesday ordered a $5 million bond for 32-year-old Andrew Obregon of Bristol, after he was charged with 32 criminal and 19 traffic counts that include first-degree intentional homicide for the September slaying of 37-year-old Tywon Anderson.
Prosecutors have said Obregon thought the man was a drug dealer who robbed his nephew.
As investigators searched for him for more than two weeks earlier this fall, police said Obregon eluded officers three times, stole several vehicles, and robbed a gas station. He was arrested October 13 after he allegedly assaulted a woman, stole her vehicle, and drove it into Illinois, where he was captured. He waived extradition back to Wisconsin earlier this week.
Aside from homicide, Obregon’s criminal charges include attempted homicide, hiding a corpse, kidnapping, armed robbery, and numerous thefts. His traffic counts include reckless endangerment.
Obregon is due back in court November 20 for a preliminary hearing on his felony counts.
