A paternity test last month confirmed Nowicki was the father of a baby girl AJ.’s mother Joann Cunningham delivered while she was in the McHenry County jail.

Cunningham remains in jail and is charged with the murder of 5-year-old AJ.

Freund’s father is also charged in the killing.

Prosecutors say they beat AJ in April, then buried his body in a shallow grave.
