Police have to stun Jada Justice suspect before court hearing

Lake County police had to use a stun gun Monday morning on one of the two adults now charged with the murder of 2-year-old Jada Justice.

Tim Tkachik, 24, of Hobart, appeared for his initial hearing Monday morning with his head bandaged and a prominent bruise on his left cheek.

Michael Higgins, a spokesman for county police, said Tkachik became disruptive in a holding cell shortly before the court session. "He got up on a table and was trying to get into an electrical panel. He was asked nicely to get down and when he didn't they had to use a Tazer," Higgins said.

Higgins said jail medical staff tended to Tkachik's injuries arising from the incident.

His 18-year-old girlfriend, Engelica Castillo, also of Hobart was visibly trembling during the court session as she stood a few feet from Tkachik and heard they both were being charged with neglecting, battering and murdering Jada on June 13 as well as being charged with lying to police in their effort to cover up the crime.

Jada Justice funeral services set for Friday



(snippet)

The girl's baby sitter and cousin, Engelica Castillo, and Castillo's boyfriend, Timothy Tkachik, were charged with her murder in the girl's death last week.

The couple are accused of dumping the girl's body, encased in concrete, on June 15 into a LaPorte County swamp, only after a failed attempt at burning her body to destroy evidence from the previous day.

They realized the girl was dead while en route to buy heroin on June 13, hours after Castillo beat the girl in her head, prosecutors allege.

Prosecutors Seek Life Sentence For Woman In Child's Murder


Jada Justice

(snippet)

Prosecutors plan to seek a life sentence without parole for a northwest Indiaan woman charged with the beating death of a toddler, the Post-Tribune is reporting.

Engelica Elisa Castillo, 18, of the 3900 block of Missouri Street in Hobart, Ind., was charged June 26 with murder, two counts of neglect of a dependent and battery in the death of 2-year-old Jada Justice.

Lake County prosecutors on Thursday filed an amended information seeking a sentence of life in prison without parole if Castillo is convicted. The request is based on an aggravating circumstance that prosecutors would have to prove -- that Castillo killed the girl, who was less than 12 years old.

Judge reschedules Castillo trial

Hobart woman charged with Jada Justice death

(snippet)

Lake Criminal Court Judge Thomas Stefaniak Jr. on Friday agreed to again reset the trial date of 19-year-old murder defendant Engelica Castillo.

Castillo had been slated to go to trial March 29, but Friday's hearing resulted in resetting the starting date to Aug. 2. The trial is estimated to run two weeks.

(...)

Activity on Tkachik's case appears to lag considerably behind that of Castillo. His last hearing Dec. 18 resulted in the defense's declining to set a trial date.

An omnibus hearing for Tkachik currently is set for Feb. 5.

500 potential jurors to be called for Castillo trial‎

Some 500 Lake County residents have been identified as potential jurors in the case of a Hobart woman charged in the death of 2-year-old Portage toddler Jada Justice.

They will begin reporting to the Lake County Government Center on Monday morning for the start of the trial of Engelica Elisa Castillo, who has pleaded not guilty to charges of murder, two counts of neglect of a dependent, battery and false informing in Jada's death in June 2009.

One of the key witnesses during the trial will be Castillo's former boyfriend, Timothy John Tkachik, 25, who pleaded guilty June 21 to two counts of neglect of a dependent. Prosecutors may introduce as evidence some letters Castillo wrote to Tkachik and others while she's been held at the Lake County Jail.

In court, Tkachik admitted he endangered the girl by putting her in a situation that resulted in her death and by failing to get her prompt medical attention.

Tkachik and Castillo, who is the cousin of Jada's mother, Melissa Swiontek, had agreed to care for the girl between June 12 and June 18, 2009, at their rental home at 3925 Missouri St., Hobart.

Several testify as Jada Justice case begins‎

Testimony in the Jada Justice slaying case began Wednesday afternoon following the final selection of four alternate jurors.

The regular jury, composed of seven women and five men, had been seated earlier after two days of intense grilling by Lake County deputy prosecutors and defense attorneys.

The jury is charged with judging the fate of Engelica Castillo, of Hobart. Castillo, who turns 20 on Friday, faces a potential sentence of life without parole if convicted in the death of her 2-year-old cousin, Jada Justice, of Portage.

In opening statements, deputy prosecutor David Urbanski set the stage for the state's star witness, Castillo's boyfriend, 25-year-old Timothy Tkachik, also of Hobart.

Tkachik faced the same five charges in the case as Castillo until he entered into a plea bargain last month, which includes testifying against his girlfriend.
