A second man charged in last month's triple Darien slaying has pleaded innocent.

Jacob Nodarse, the man suspected of pulling the trigger, entered the perfunctory plea Wednesday when arraigned on a 22-count felony indictment alleging first-degree murder, conspiracy and home invasion. No family appeared in court for the brief hearing.

The 24-year-old Countryside man also is charged with obstructing justice for fleeing to Florida before his arrest. Nodarse has a clean criminal history.

Prosecutors said he confessed to opening fire March 2 after busting through the Kramer family's first-floor window with a hammer. They said his friend, Johnny Borizov, 28, of Willow Springs, convinced Nodarse to carry out a plan to kill members of his ex-girlfriend's family as the former couple battled over custody of their infant son.

Angela Kramer, 25, survived after hiding in a closet, but her parents and younger brother were killed.

Borizov and Nodarse remain held without bond in the DuPage County jail.
