Johnny Borizov, the man accused of ordering the killing of a Darien family, is petitioning for a court-ordered visitation with his infant son whom he has not seen since March, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

Borizov is currently being held without bond at DuPage County Jail while he awaits trial for the allegedly arranging the shootings that left three members of his ex-girlfriend's family dead.

Killed were Jeffrey Kramer, Lori Kramer and their 20-year-old son Michael Kramer, all of Darien. Borizov's ex-girlfriend, Angela Kramer, escaped injury by hiding in a closet.

According to previous reports, Borizov allegedly planned the attack with friend Jacob Nodarse acting as the gunman.  The plot stemmed from a custody battle between Borizov and Kramer over their son, whom he now wants to see.

Earlier this month, Nodarse underwent psychological evaluations and was declared mentally fit to stand trail.  Speculation exists that his defense attorney may argue he was insane during the time of the shootings.

Both Borizov and Nodarse have pleaded not guilty and prosecutors say they will not seek the death penalty.

The Sun-Times reports that depite all this Borizov is moving foward with his petition and an attorney representing Angela Kramer could not be reached for comment.
