$5M bond set for man accused of plot to kill lawyer

July 14, 2015

A $5 million bond has been set for a man accused of plotting with his mother to kill a Hamilton County divorce attorney seeking money from the mother's boyfriend.

The Indianapolis Star reports 21-year-old Richard Perillo of California appeared by video Monday for an initial court hearing in Noblesville. He and his mother, 51-year-old Renee Perillo of Florida, are accused planning to kill Noblesville lawyer Rebecca Eimerman.

The two were released in May on $20,000 bond after being arrested on lesser charges outside Eimerman’s home. Authorities say they didn’t appear at a June court hearing and were on the lam for weeks. Richard Perillo was arrested in San Diego, and his mother was taken into custody in Montana.
