    Ashburn man accused of killing wife free on bond

    An Ashburn man accused of killing his estranged wife in March was released yesterday on bond.

    Braulio M. Castillo, 43, was granted a $2 million bond in May by Judge Burke McCahill.

    To be released on bond, an inmate must pay 10 percent of the amount set.

    Still, Castillo may not be out of jail for long. A bond hearing is scheduled for today at 4 p.m. in Loudoun County Circuit Court.

    For now, Castillo is subject to electronic monitoring and supervision and may not leave the state. He's also required to surrender his passport and may not discuss the case with his children, who have been living with family friends since their mother’s death and father’s arrest.

    Castillo’s bond was previously set at $1 million by the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court, prompting an appeal from the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office. Though McCahill denied the appeal, he did increase the amount.

    Castillo was arrested April 1 for the March 19 murder in which Michelle Castillo, 43, was beaten and then hung from the basement shower to give the appearance of suicide. Her body was found the following day when a neighbor called for a welfare check after the children couldn’t find their mother.

    The Castillos have five children, including four under the age of 18.

    Castillo is set to be tried before a jury from Sept. 15-26.
