A man facing trial next month, accused of kidnapping and robbing a Wheaton College student at gunpoint, was scheduled for a happier courtroom legal proceeding Tuesday – his own wedding.
But there was one snag: There was no bride.
Jeremy M. Jones, 25, of Elgin, who is being held in the DuPage County Jail in lieu of $3.5 million bail, had received court permission to be wed, according to court records and Jones’ attorney.
Jones was set to tie the knot in front of Judge John Kinsella, who has been overseeing Jones’ ongoing criminal case.
The wedding was scheduled to be performed during the 9 a.m. court call in Kinsella’s courtroom. By the time other business was dispensed with by 9:40 a.m., the bride still had not arrived.
Jones is scheduled to stand trial Oct. 16 for an incident that took place in August 2016. He is one of three men who were charged with forcing the college student into their vehicle at gunpoint outside a Glen Ellyn Starbucks.
