Man Fathered His Daughter’s Child, Tried Hiring Hitman

CHICAGO (WBBM) – Bail has been set at $7 million for a Steger man who wanted his daughter dead.

Investigators say Robert Deja, 45, sexually abused his adopted daughter for four years, and fathered her 3-year-old daughter. When Deja found out the 20-year-old woman had a boyfriend, police say he became so angry, that he tried to hire his own brother to kill her.

But the brother, according to a spokesman for the Cook County State’s Attorney’s office, informed police..

Deja is charged with solicitation to commit murder and criminal sexual assault. His daughter is pregnant again — the baby may be his — or it may be her boyfriend’s.
