GALESBURG-- A Knox County judge has ordered bond amounts to stand for three suspects arrested in connection with the shooting death of a man in a crowded park in the western Illinois community of Galesburg.

The three face charges in the June 30 death of 21-year-old Jemell Ware, who died not long after the shooting near a playground in Kiwanis Park.

Bond for 46-year-old Overton Fisher is set at $3 million. Bond for 18-year old Michael Fisher and 21-year old Kareem Dixon is set at $1 million each.

The three made initial court appearances Wednesday.

An unnamed 16-year-old and 18-year-old Michael Garrett also face charges in the case.
