ORLAND PARK | Bail has been set at $2 million for the father of former Northwestern quarterback Zak Kustok who's accused of killing his wife.
Fifty-nine-year-old Allan Kustok, who denies wrongdoing, showed no emotion during Friday's court hearing.
He faces murder charges in the death of Anita Kustok, a 1969 graduate of Thornton Fractional North High School in Calumet City.
She was pronounced dead Wednesday at a suburban Chicago hospital from a gunshot wound to her head. The Cook County medical examiner's office said the gun was fired inches from her cheek.
Allan Kustok's defense attorney said the family will be able to raise $20,000 for bail.
Family members leaving court, including Zak Kustok, declined to speak with reporters.
He led Northwestern to the Big Ten title in 2000. His sister, Sarah Kustok, is a Comcast SportsNet reporter.
After the hearing, Allen Kustok was taken to Cook County Jail, where he notified jail personnel he would like to be held in protective custody, jail officials said in a written release.
After going through both mental and physical evaluations as part of the intake process, officials at the jail determined that Kustok should be held in the custody of Cermak Hospital, located on the jail campus.
