A Huntley man who was one of three charged with murder for the fatal beating of a father in Kane County has been sentenced to 30 days in jail after taking a plea deal.
Ryan Barrett, 33, of Huntley, was charged in Kane County Circuit Court in July 2021 with second-degree murder, two counts of aggravated battery and mob action.
Two others, Peter Stoyshich, of Belize, Central America, and Kurt Doporcyk, of Algonquin, were also indicted on the same charges.
Police investigators identified the three as being involved in a road rage incident at the Casey’s General Store in West Dundee on June 10, 2021.
A physical altercation occurred involving six men, including the three suspects, as a result of a motorist dispute between two vehicles, police said.
The three other men were injured by the suspects.
One of the victims, Alex T. Hall, 52, of Carpentersville, died three days later from his injuries in the attack.
Hall was a single father of two children. “He was defending his sons life whom which was hospitalized and badly injured,” Woodstock resident Raymond Hall said in a fundraiser at the time.
Court records show Barrett pleaded guilty on Wednesday to one count of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm, a Class 1 felony.
In exchange, his other charges were dismissed.
Kane County Judge Salvatore LoPiccolo Jr. approved the plea deal and sentenced Barrett to 30 days in jail and two years of probation.
Barrett was ordered to pay $2,429 in court fines and fees.
Doporcyk’s case is still active and he is scheduled to appear in court again on April 6.
Stoyshich is not in custody yet on the charges and a warrant remains active.
