A judge sentenced a man from Springfield Thursday on second-degree murder charges from 2020.
Riley Collier was sentenced to life in prison plus 44 years for second-degree murder, armed criminal action, tampering with a motor vehicle and unlawful possession of a firearm.
Prosecutors accused Collier of shooting and killing Stanley Simon II in October of 2020.
Invesitgators in the case had found Simon’s stolen truck four days after the murder, with Collier’s debit card inside, and also uncovered text conversations between Collier and another suspect, Michael Stauffer, discussing the homicide.
His sentence will be served concurrently, and without the eligibility of parole.
