In several interviews with police, Letkiewicz identified Feliciano as his assailant. He also said Feliciano stole money from him. Letkiewicz died Nov. 23.

Prosecutors say Feliciano fled to Ohio but returned to the Chicago area after his mother died. He was arrested at a relative's home in May.

Shortly after the attack, a neighbor said Letkiewicz met the suspect begging outside a grocery store and offered to take him in if he'd clean his home.
