High bonds of $2.5 million were set Monday for each of the three suspects accused of holding up former Cincinnati lawyer Stan Chesley and his wife - a federal judge  - at gunpoint inside their home over the weekend.

Terry Jackson Jr. and Darrell Kinney, both 21, and Demetrius Williams, 20, remain at the Hamilton County jail on charges of abduction and aggravated robbery after their brief court appearance.

According to court records, the trio kicked in the basement door to the couple's home and pointed guns at their heads while threatening to shoot them Friday night. All three had loaded weapons, prosecutors said in court Monday.

One of the suspects later admitted to all three being involved in the robbery, and property stolen from the victims' residence was found in one of the suspect's vehicles, Indian Hill police wrote in court records.

Police say Chesley and his wife, Judge Susan Dlott, were unnerved but fine. 

Authorities say the couple was robbed of credit cards, money and identification before the suspects heard a noise and fled.

Judge Susan Dlott made a 911 call to report the incident shortly from a nearby home.

“My husband and the dogs are still there.  There’s three black men with guns and masks in our house,” Dlott told a dispatcher.

The three men police have accused in the incident are Jackson, Kinney and Williams.

"All three had loaded weapons, judge,” a prosecutor said in court Monday morning.

A longtime friend of the couple, and former law clerk for Judge Dlott, said the two are recovering.

"It's terrible to think there are people out there who are so bereft of humanity, or recognition of value of people,” Young told FOX19 NOW.

She says Judge Dlott was back on the bench on Monday.  As for her husband, noted attorney Stan Chesley, he’s still trying to recover from his injuries.

"Stan had three broken thoracic bones and a broken pelvis and a concussion.  He was violently assaulted,” Young said.

A source tells FOX19 NOW the men broke into the Indian Hill mansion by kicking in a back door.  That source says the men started stealing furs, and went upstairs to find the couple watching a movie in their bedroom.

Police say the men threatened to shoot the couple.

A FOX19 NOW source says, at one point, a suspect misfired a stun gun pointed at Chesley, who was pushed down the stairs and was hit with a gun.  That source says one of the men was apologetic during the incident, even offering Dlott a drink of water.  That source says the men are likely facing state and federal charges.

"Call the United States Marshals!  I'm a federal judge,” Dlott screamed in a 911 call.

A source says Dlott ran to a neighbor's house in a nightgown leaving her feet bloody from that run to make that call.

"They're people who really make such a difference in the world and thank God they're still her,” Young said of the victims.

Our source says the men were found with Chesley’s wallet, his cell phone and stolen goods after a traffic stop in Madeira.  Two of them, Kinney and Williams, prosecutors say, just got out of prison after serving sentences on burglary charges.
