Peoria Man Arrested In Teen Murder

A Peoria man's been arrested and charged in the Saturday murder of a 14 year old football player. 21 year old Alex Collins, 21 of 2805 W. Wardcliffe Drive is charged with home invasion and murder. Tommie Forest III was found dead with a gunshot wound to his head Saturday night. The freshman was having a sleep-over with friends.
