WOODSTOCK – A 32-year-old man is being held in McHenry County Jail on first-degree murder and burglary charges, but the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office isn’t saying why.

Miguel A. Hernandez-Solorzano was confined as of about 8 p.m. Saturday, according to online jail records.

He is being held in lieu of $5 million bond.

Hernandez-Solorzano was charged with murder/intent to kill/injure, burglary and violating an order of protection, jail records show. In his booking photo, he appears to have a black eye.

The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office could not be reached for information on Hernandez-Solorzano or his charges.

A woman sought an emergency order of protection against Hernandez-Solorzano from a judge Oct. 2. Court records weren’t available Monday because of the federal holiday.

He next will appear in court Wednesday morning for a status hearing.

The case is being prosecuted by the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office. A judge appointed the McHenry County Public Defender’s Office to represent Hernandez-Solorzano.

He could face up to 60 years in prison if convicted of first-degree murder.
