A second man has been charged with burgling a house in Cotmanhay last month.
Sentimental army medals and jewellery were stolen from the house in Raleigh Close on December 18.
The 27-year-old man will appear before magistrates in Derby on Monday February 4.
Matthew Fretwell, 31, of Ilkeston, has already been charged with the same offence and appeared before magistrates in December.
The victim came home to find a man climbing out of an upstairs window. She looked out and saw two men running away from the house.
