BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. -- Bond was set at $5 million each for two men accused of tying up and robbing New York Knicks forward Eddy Curry at his suburban Chicago mansion.

Demorris Hill, 25, and Antoine Larkins, 28, both of Chicago, are also charged in the armed robbery of Miami Heat forward Antoine Walker at the player's Chicago town house.

The men, each held Monday at the Cook County Jail, face five counts of armed robbery, six counts of aggravated kidnapping and one count of home invasion in the July 28 robbery.

Curry, his wife and an employee were tied up with duct tape and robbed as multiple masked gunmen raided his home of money and jewelry, police said.

Hill and Larkins, along with Phillip Allison, 28, and Gregory Reedfields, 23, are also charged with home invasion, armed robbery and aggravated kidnapping in a similar robbery of Walker's home on July 9.

Multiple masked robbers bound Walker and a relative with duct tape and held them at gunpoint. They stole Walker's Mercedes, cash and jewelry, police said.

A judge denied bond for Hill and Larkins in the Walker case last week.

A third suspect remained at large in the Curry case, Burr Ridge police said in a statement.
