A DuPage County grand jury indicted a second man Tuesday in last month's triple Darien slaying.

The alleged shooter, Jacob Nodarse, is facing a 22-count felony indictment alleging first-degree murder, conspiracy and home invasion.

The 24-year-old Countryside man also is charged with obstructing justice for fleeing to Florida before his arrest. He will plead innocent Wednesday when arraigned. Nodarse has a clean criminal history.

Prosecutors said he confessed to opening fire early 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.
