Charges have been filed in a November home invasion and murder in the south suburbs.

The victim was found dead inside his home in Lynwood. The suspect was arrested in Gary, Ind., and is due in court Friday. Lynwood police say the man also faces kidnapping charges.

Detectives charged Calvin Griffin after police arrested him on an unrelated charge in Gary Thursday. He is charged in connection with a horrendous crime November 28. Eugene White Jr., 56, was found fatally shot in the head and the chest in his home, and his wife told police she was sexually assaulted, kidnapped by the attacker and dropped off in Chicago Heights.

Investigators have been saying they were searching for a lone suspect who was targeting the couple, but now they say another suspect is at large.

Police are not saying what the suspect's motives were. He was expected to plead not guilty.
