Elmhurst—A grand jury this week indicted a Bellwood man on a charge he robbed an Elmhurst man of his new Air Jordans last month.

Darien—Judge Daniel Guerin scheduled a Feb. 9 hearing for attorneys in Johnny Borizov's triple-murder case to offer their arguments over medical records his defense team is interested in analyzing ahead of a possible trial. Borizov is accused in the murders of three members of the Kramer family in March 2010. His co-defendant, Jacob Nodarse, pleaded guilty last year and is expected to testify against Borizov. Nodarse mental health records, as well as those of Angela Kramer - the mother of Borizov's son - are being sought by the defense for various reasons.
Darien—A married couple from the western Illinois town of Walnut has been indicted on heroin possession charges connected to their Christmas Eve arrest in Darien.

Georgina Burr has a Feb. 6 court date.
Naperville—One of four men accused in a June home invasion has pleaded guilty. Clarence Guyton admitted to one count of attempted armed robbery in an agreement with prosecutors, who dropped five other counts, but did not include a deal on sentencing.

Guyton was involved in a traffic incident a short time after the break in and reportedly told a police officer that his girlfriend had just been robbed. Guyton is scheduled to be sentenced on March 6.
