Bond will remain at $750,000 for the woman accused of being the mastermind of an acid attack this summer.

In court Friday, a judge denied the request to reduce bond for Ofelia Garcia.

Prosecutors say the 59-year-old planned the assault on Esperanza Medina because she believed the victim was seeing her ex-husband.

Medina suffered third degree burns in the July attack in Logan Square.

Garcia has denied any involvement in the case.

Two other adults and three juveniles have also been charged.
