An Illinois State Police SWAT team arrested 40-year-old Ray Tate of Hopkinsville, Kentucky, on Wednesday afternoon at a home in Carlyle, Illinois, where Tate allegedly committed a home invasion and took the homeowner hostage in addition to the carjacking victim. Tate was charged with murder by the Wayne County State’s Attorney and lodged in the Clinton County Jail. Neither the carjacking victim nor the home invasion victim was injured, police said.
