Baby’s Parents Threatened

Associated Press

Baby Richard’s adoptive parents appealed Monday for an end to death threats against his biological parents, the couple they fought in court for four years.

“Richard’s emotional and physical well-being have always been our primary concern,” Robert and Kimberly Warburton said in a statement.

The Warburtons, reluctantly bowing to an Illinois Supreme Court order, relinquished custody of the 4-yearold boy to biological parents Otakar and Daniela Kirchner on April 30.

The Kirchners say they have received a number of death threats since taking custody of the boy.
