Two DCFS caseworkers that investigated abuse of AJ Freund, who was murdered in 2019, were arrested on Thursday and are facing felony charges, Your Content is learning.

Two former Illinois Department of Children and Family Services employees who oversaw AJ Freund’s case were arrested Thursday, according to the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office.

In Dec. 2019, the department confirmed the employees in question, Carlos Acosta and his supervisor, Andrew Polovin, left the agency after a lengthy internal investigation.

Acosta, 54 of Woodstock, and Polovin, 48, of Island Lake, were charged with two felony counts of endangering the life of a child and one felony count of reckless conduct. Both were taken into custody without incident and transported to the McHenry County Correctional Facility, sheriff’s official said.
