PEORIA —

A South Peoria man was indicted Tuesday by a Peoria County grand jury for allegedly stabbing his cousin and roommate to death last month.

Erie T. Roberts, 47, of 1312 W. Butler St. is charged with one count of first-degree murder in the Oct. 18 death of Roosevelt Evans at their home.

Evans, 40, was found with multiple stab wounds on his kitchen floor about 12:40 a.m. that day at their home. It was the city’s fifth homicide this year.

No further information has been released about the slaying.

Roberts’ bond is set at $2 million. He will be arraigned Thursday.

He faces 20 to 60 years in prison if convicted.
