Bruno's bail was doubled Friday to $1,000,000 cash.
 
Bruno is also faces burglary and attempted homicide counts stemming from the alleged attack on his ex-girlfriend and another woman, who were repeatedly stabbed during the July 27 attack. The child's mother remains in critical condition, the friend was released from the hospital.
