A Glenview man is in jail charged with stealing a famous oil painting and three other works from an Evanston home.

Fifty-one-year-old Michael Karabatsis is accused of being one of three men who broke into the home last April.

Police say the homeowners, a couple in their 60's, were beaten and duct-taped during the robbery.

The painting was discovered for sale on consignment at a shop in Morton Grove.
