A suburban man was charged with attempted murder in connection with a home invasion last March in the Beverly neighborhood.

Joey Miller, 25, allegedly broke into a residence around 3 p.m. on March 24 in the 2600 block of West 103rd Street, according to police. Once he was inside, Miller hit the 67-year-old man over the head with a large blunt object and threw him down the basement stairs, according to the police report.

Miller told the victim: "Shut up, I'm going to kill you" during the attack. The victim suffered serious injuries to the head, police said.

Miller was arrested Thursday in Stickney. He was charged with one felony count of first-degree attempted murder, home invasion causing injury and aggravated battery using a deadly weapon, all felonies.

Miller has a detention hearing scheduled for Friday.
