Two Men Plead Guilty to Two Different Homicides
By Larry Gavin

On Dec. 13, Matthew A. Dubose, 28, pled guilty to second-degree murder in the shooting death of Cardereon Preister in the 1700 block of Leland Avenue in Sept. 2013. As part of a plea deal, Mr. Debose was sentenced to 20 years in prison, and under sentencing guidelines he may be released after serving 10 years in prison. Mr. Debose may be credited for five years already served in prison, Commander Ryan Glew of the Evanston Police Department told the RoundTable.

On Dec. 17, as part of a plea deal, Dominic Connerly, 27, pled guilty to conspiracy to commit first-degree murder of Floyd Gilbert on Dec. 7, 2013 in the 2000 block of Darrow Avenue.  Mr. Connerly, who formerly lived in Evanston, agreed to a 15-year prison sentence, said Cmdr. Glew. Mr. Connerly is scheduled to be sentenced in January.

Cmdr. Glew told the RoundTable that the State’s Attorney’s Office entered into the plea agreements, and that they customarily do so after consulting with the victim’s family.

“When a case can be resolved through a finding of guilt brought about through a plea agreement or a jury verdict, we hope there is a sense of closure for the victim’s family,” said the Commander.
