A south suburban man is charged with first-degree murder in connection with the fatal shooting of a UIC graduate student.

Olubasayo Awomolo, 21, was killed outside his home near 155th and Ingleside in Dolton last November.

Nelon Drakem, 22, appeared in court on Monday.

The Cook County state's attorney spokesperson says robbery was the likely motive.
