ROCK ISLAND -- A man convicted of first degree murder was sentenced to 50 years in prison on Wednesday, March 15, 2017. He was also sentenced to 12 years for aggravated battery with firearm. Both sentences are consecutive.
LaMaree Wilson-Neuleib was 17 years old when he shot and killed Zachary Phillips back in 2015.
Police said he fatally shot Phillips and injured another teen during a drug deal. Phillips died of his injuries.
Previous reports indicate that Wilson was originally sentenced to 60 years in prison, but was granted a retrial after withdrawing the guilty plea that led to his sentencing.
