About this Article

A judge set bail at $100,000 for the third man implicated in last week's murder of Abigail Villalpando, a 18-year-old West Aurora High School student. Jose M. Becerra, 20, of Oswego, is charged with concealment of a homicide; police say he helped move Villalpando's body to Montgomery after another person killed her with a hammer and burned her remains in a barrel.
