A Chicago man, who has a history of burglaries, has been sentenced to eight years in prison for burglarizing a Lake in the Hills home while the residents were out of town, prosecutors said.
Tyree Marshall, 25, of Chicago, was found guilty of residential burglary, a Class 1 felony, following a negotiated plea before McHenry County Judge Michael Coppedge.
McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally said that the Lake in the Hills Police Department investigated a residential burglary in May 2016 which occurred when the residents of the home were out of town.
Officers discovered that the offender broke a glass window to gain entry to the home. A thorough examination of the scene led to the discovery of a palm print on the outside window frame and fingerprints on a piece of broken glass.
The palm and finger prints matched those in a criminal database for Marshall, prosecutors said.
Marshall will serve eight years in the Illinois Department of Corrections pursuant to the plea. He was also recently sentenced to prison for residential burglaries in Cook County and Kane County, prosecutors said, adding that the sentences will run concurrent.
The case was investigated by members of the Lake in the Hills Police Department and prosecuted by Robert Ladd of the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.
