GARY — A warrant issued last week for a Glen Park man charged with burglary and robbery is expected to be recalled because the suspect has been dead for more than a year, police said.
Mark Woodson, 36, was shot and killed in September 2012 while driving on the South Side of Chicago.
Chief Wade Ingram said Monday afternoon he was unaware of how or why the case was filed on a deceased man. After speaking to Investigative Division Cmdr. Michael Jackson, Ingram said the commander vowed to speak to detectives and find out what happened.
Sgt. Brian Farrow presented charges Wednesday against Woodson, one of two men accused of breaking into a house in the 500 block of Rhode Island Street July 10, 2012.
The second suspect, Ivan McMillan, 22, was arrested at the scene, but released within 48 hours because the charges had not been filed. Farrow presented the case to prosecutors about six weeks later. McMillan was charged Aug. 22, 2012.
“After McMillan was charged with his role in the above incident . . . he disclosed that his co-perpetrator was a male subject names Mark A Woodson,” the probable cause affidavit states.
