    IL - Ava Bowhay, 10 mos, dies of head trauma, Clinton, 1 June 2007

    10-month-old dies; man charged in death

    By Edith Brady-Lunny
    UPDATED 4 p.m. CLINTON -- The state will not seek the death penalty against a Clinton man charged in the beating death of his girlfriend’s daughter, the DeWitt County prosecutor said Monday.

    Richard Heuermann, 21, cried and asked for a chair to sit down as five aggravated battery and five first-degree murder charges were read against him in court. He is accused of beating 10-month-old Ava Bowhay on June 1.

    Bond was raised from $500,000 to $1 million in the case. Heuermann must post $100,000, 10 percent of the total bond, to be released. Public defender Richard Goff was appointed to represent Heurermann.

    An autopsy is planned for Tuesday, according to Peoria County Coroner Johnna Ingersoll.

    Awwww....bless his little heart, crying and needing to sit down. Guess hearing the reality of what he did was just a little too much. Too bad he can't actually *feel* the pain he inflicted on his tiny victim...he'd really be crying then, huh?

    freakin coward. he thinks he can beat up on an infant, feed the authorities a bunch of crap and walk away. he needs the death penalty so he understands what its like to have someone/something bigger and stronger than he is take his life.

    Yea unfortunately the death penalty was thrown out of Illinois by good all George Ryan who was sentenced to prison for taking bribes and other such things.

    Richard Heuermann

    He started out with 5 counts Aggravated Battery and 5 counts 1st Degree Murder. He ended up sentenced for 1 count of Involuntary Manslaughter/Family Member.

    He was sentenced to 14 years.

    Belinda, thank you so much for all the work you've been doing on finding how these people ended up getting sentenced. I really appreciate it.
