CARBONDALE, IL (KFVS) -

A Heartland man was arrested on charges related to a first-degree murder and home invasion.

Elijah S. Lacy, 28, of Carbondale was arrested in Orange County, California.

Lacy was charged in the death of Falon Taylor on Jan. 6, 2007.

However, a judge dismissed the charges in 2010 saying Lacy's rights to a speedy trial had been violated.

Then, the Illinois Supreme Court reversed the decision on July 11, 2013, so another warrant was issued for Lacy's arrest.

Lacy was still in California awaiting extradition to Jackson County, Illinois.
