The 49 year old was stabbed in the front yard of a home on Brooks Street in Galesburg August 13. He died from his injuries the next week. Croom's charges were then upgraded to murder and unlawful use of a weapon by a felon. U.S. Marshals found and arrested him Monday morning in Lake in the Hills, a suburb northwest of Chicago. Galesburg police say his bail is set at $1 million.
