The 21-year-old girlfriend of Joliet mass murder suspect Romeo Nance appeared in a Will County courthouse Thursday accused of giving false information to police when she claimed she didn’t know his phone number, officials said.

Kyleigh Cleveland-Singleton, charged with felony obstruction of justice, appeared before Judge David Carlson, who ordered her placed on home confinement, according to the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office.

On Monday, Cleveland-Singleton “furnished false information” about not knowing Nance’s phone number “with the intent to prevent the apprehension of Romeo Nance for first degree murder,” read a criminal complaint.
