When he does, he’ll be behind bars along with Victor Steban, a double homicide suspect police say tried to kill Katona.

When Katona reports there, he’ll be in the same prison as Steban, who police say shot up Katona’s home earlier this month. Steban is also accused in a house fire, a double homicide, other drive-by shootings and an attempted carjacking. Steban told reporters his motivation for his crime spree was “all about getting Rooster.”
