Elgin man charged with 1st degree murder in wife’s strangulation death

Victor Ayllon being held on $3M bond in Kane County jail

ST. CHARLES TOWNSHIP – A 35-year-old Elgin man was charged with two counts of first-degree murder today in the strangulation death of his wife, the Kane County State’s Attorney’s Office announced in a news release.

Kane County prosecutors alleged that on July 12, at their home in Elgin, Victor Ayllon strangled Wendy Ayllon, killing her.

Elgin police took Ayllon into custody the next day and on Thursday a judge set his bond at $3 million. His next court date is July 22.

Kane County State’s Attorney Jamie Mosser stated in the release that, “The accusations against Mr. Ayllon represent the worst possible outcome of domestic violence, and why this office works so hard to end domestic abuse.”

“Too often, without intervention, an abusive home situation escalates into violence, and sadly, death. That doesn’t need to happen,” Mosser stated in the release. “My thanks to Elgin Chief of Police Ana Lalley and her team for the quick and thorough investigation.”

Elgin Chief of Police Ana Lalley stated in the release that, “I want to extend my heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of Mrs. Ayllon.”

“The arrest of Mr. Ayllon happened in an expeditious manner and was due to the significant efforts by the dedicated men and women of the department,” Lalley said.

She credited the SWAT team who placed Mr. Ayllon in custody without incident, the Special Investigations Group and Major Investigations Division and our patrol officers who initially responded and ensured the safety of the children involved.

“Their professionalism and dedication is what brought a quick resolution to this case,” Lalley stated in the release. “I hope that the arrest of Mr. Ayllon helps to begin the healing process for the family and friends of Mrs. Ayllon.”
