BENTON, Ill. (AP) - A southern Illinois man is being held in lieu of $2 million bond after being charged with attempted murder. He is accused of shooting another man in the back of the neck with a shotgun.

Prosecutors in Franklin County also charged 21-year-old Koby Humerickhouse with aggravated battery.

Authorities say John Ferketich was shot shortly after 6 a.m. Friday in his home near West Frankfort.

Authorities haven’t revealed Ferketich’s medical status as of Tuesday.

Online court records don’t show whether Humerickhouse has an attorney.
