Two Chicago brothers who were arrested for child pornography reportedly both fantasized about sexually assaulting and killing babies, authorities said.
Andrew Castro, 26, and 29-year-old Levi Castro, of Crest Hill, Illinois, were arrested on December 19th at their home after police obtained and executed a search warrent. The arrest followed an investigation that linked child pornography to the brothers’ computer. According to the Chicago Tribune, authorities traced the pornography to the Castro brothers with an IPO address.
According to an investigator’s testimony, it was recently discovered that the Castro brothers “discussed possibly kidnapping a child, a baby, sexually assaulting the baby and then killing, or disposing of the baby, and if the mother of the child got in the way, killing the mother.”
Andrew Castro, whose face is covered entirely by a tattoo, was charged three counts of possession of child pornography and one count of dissemination of child pornography. If convicted, he faces up to 30 years in prison. His brother Levi was charged with one count of possession of child pornography and faces 3 to 7 years behind bars.
According to the Huffington Post, the brothers are both being held on $2 million bond. Their next scheduled court appearance is January 12th.
