$250k bond for man charged with biting off another man's ear

Posted: Updated:
JUSTICE, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Bond was set at $250,000 for a southwest suburban man after he bit off a piece of another man's ear during a "domestic dispute" in Justice, the sheriff's office said.

Richard Vody, 28, forced his way into a woman's home in the 200 block of Walnut Lane Friday morning and argued with her boyfriend, the Cook County Sheriff's office said in a release.

During the fight, Vody allegedly leaned in and bit off about half of the man's right ear, the sheriff's office said. The 26-year-old victim, of west suburban Westchester, was taken to an area hospital for treatment.

Vody, the victim and the victim's girlfriend all knew each other, the sheriff's office said.

Chicago Police canine units found the missing part of the man's ear Saturday "near the residence," the sheriff's office said.

Vody, of the 7800 block of Garden Lane, faces one count of home invasion, one count of aggravated battery, and one count of domestic battery, according to the sheriff's office.

Bond was set at $250,000 and he was released, the sheriff's office said.

Vody is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
