Johnathan N. Skroko, 28, of South Elgin, and Hailey D. Miller, 24, of Antioch.

Two people have been charged after a 42-year-old man was robbed, fatally shot and then had his body dumped in a bathtub at an apartment in Antioch, prosecutors said.

Johnathan N. Skroko, 28, of the 600 block of Fieldcrest Drive in South Elgin, and Hailey D. Miller, 24, of the 1000 block of Main Street in Antioch, were charged with first-degree murder.

Lake County Assistant State’s Attorney Steve Scheller said that the victim, identified as Robbie Dickerson, 42, of Racine, Wisconsin, went to Miller’s home in the 1000 block of Main Street in Antioch around 11 p.m. Monday.

Dickerson went to the residence to engage in a drug transaction and was with his girlfriend, Scheller said.

Miller convinced Dickerson to come into her residence.

Miller told investigators that Skroko had planned to hold Dickerson at gunpoint and steal his drugs, Scheller said.

Skroko allegedly hid in another room when Dickerson arrived and came out with a shotgun.

Scheller said that Skroko demanded Dickerson give him the drugs but Dickerson grabbed Miller and tried to hide behind her.

Miller was able to break away and Skroko allegedly shot Dickerson in the chest.

Skroko handed Miller a pistol and told her that he wanted her to “finish off” the victim, Scheller said.

Miller refused and Skroko fired a second shot into Dickerson, Scheller said. Skroko allegedly dragged the body into the bathtub.

Dickerson’s girlfriend, who was outside, heard the shots fired.

Skroko and Miller went outside and Miller tried to convince the victim’s girlfriend to come inside the apartment, Scheller said.

Skroko and Miller allegedly put the guns used in the murder into Miller’s car and they drove off to Wisconsin to Miller’s father’s home before later driving to Skroko’s residence in South Elgin.

Miller took the Ring doorbell camera off her residence before they fled the Antioch residence, Scheller said.

The Antioch Police Department was called to the scene and officers found Dickerson deceased in a bathtub with bleach poured over his body.

An autopsy showed Dickerson died from a gunshot wound to his chest.

Investigators located Skroko and Miller on Wednesday at a hotel near Route 41 and Grand Avenue in Gurnee, Lake County Major Crime Task Force Spokesman Christopher Covelli said.

Both were taken into custody without incident.

A gun, ammunition and clothing with blood stains were recovered from the hotel room, Scheller said.

In total, investigators recovered five guns, including some which had been dumped in Busse Woods off Higgins Road near Schaumburg.

One of the firearms was a shotgun which had a red substance consistent with blood.

Lake County Judge Theodore Potkonjak ordered Skroko held on a $10 million bond and Miller held on a $3 million bond.
