CROWN POINT | New charges against Riley Choate in Kentucky appear to have killed the chance of bail for Choate and his estranged wife, Kimberly Kubina.
Choate, 39, and Kubina, 46, are charged with murder and other counts in the death of Choate's son Christian, 13.
Just two days after the bail hearing for the accused couple, Lake County court records indicated bail has become moot.
A hold has been placed against the couple by Kentucky, Lake County court records state.
"Therefore the (petition for bail) is dismissed until such time as the hold from Kentucky has been resolved," court records state.
Another bail hearing set for Nov. 17 has been canceled.
Kentucky officials declined to immediately provide information on the new charges against Riley Choate.
Sources told The Times, however, that the charges pertain to a relationship with a minor.
Christian Choate is believed to have died in April 2009. His body was discovered in May 2011 in a shallow grave at a mobile home park in Gary's Black Oak neighborhood.
The boy's older sister, Christina, 17, testified Monday against Choate and Kubina during the bail hearing.
