Kane County prosecutors allege that the afternoon of Dec. 28, 2020, Doss without permission entered a home in the 3100 block of Merrywell Court, Carpentersville, and stabbed the victim twice with a 4-inch knife. Doss knew the victim.

Doss appeared today in Kane County bond court. His bail is set at $500,000, with 10% ($50,000) to apply for bond.

His next court appearance is set for 9 a.m. Jan. 19, 2021, in Courtroom 311 at the Kane County Judicial Center.

The charges against Doss are not proof of guilt. Doss is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial in which it is the state’s burden to prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
